Palin sure changed things for a few years, it was just great, but it's back to business as usual now. Sad thing is that Alaskans get so turned off to it all, they don't vote and we get a just as filthy dem governor elected (last one phony Tony Knowles). Last occurred in mid 90s, then Palin came to Power in the MatSu after the Knowles fiasco and then Governor. So maybe it's just history repeating itself up here.
These people putting a Republican label on the graft is more disastrous than the Democrats winning.
