  • No. The report on Troopergate said she did nothing wrong (and that trooper who was supposedly "fired" is still in fact on duty in Alaska.)

    Do many of you realize that Alaskans own more planes per capita than any other state? Do you know why that is? IT'S HUGE. The state capital, Juneau, can only be accessed by plane or ferry. Between a ferry ride and travel to Wasilla, their home city, it could take nearly 10 hours.

    Get over the fact that she LIKE MANY INCLUDING OBAMA, MCCAIN, AND BIDEN have used monies to fly their families around.

  • I'm more worried about Obama abusing our country's morals. Or just taking them away all together.

  • anon- the reason for plane ownership isn't because of the SIZE of the state... it's due to accessibility of towns/cities... it's a NECESSITY. Try driving a care (let alone an SUV) on that terrain!

  • This is trash. I'm more concerned about Obama thrusting my children and grandchildren into poverty by thinking he can throw money at everything and anything to try and make the world a "better place". Who the hell do you think is going to pay for this? He has no way to pay for these things so we will either add it to the deficit or he won't do it. Either way, he is WRONG!

    SHE DID SPEND STATE MONEY FOR HER CHILDREN TRAVEL ,when Your kids are not invited You DON'T NEED TO SPEND STATE MONEY ,USE YOUR OWN MONEY ,to pay plane tickets for her kids and then not listing these items on her income tax
    ~Troopergate-Yes she did use her power
    ~pipeline problems
    ~using personal e-mail accounts for doing state business

    Every state has own laws and Palin didn't follow Alaska state laws ,that's very the problem is.
    ~using state money to pay herself per diem from working from home
