Would Palin move U.S. Capitol to Wasilla?

Posted: Tuesday, March 04, 2008

Concerning the talk of our fashionable governor as a possible U.S. vice president candidate, it makes me wonder if she is planning on moving the vice president's office to Wasilla. Sound familiar?

Gov. Sarah Palin is learning quickly how to become a politician. I guess in cleaning up the special interest groups, you become one. What part of the voting process and the public opinion polls does she not understand? Is it the part that belies her efforts to move the capital and/or the Legislature? Her henchmen in the Legislature are carrying the ball for the move, contrary to the will of the people of Alaska.

In addition to not moving the capital or Legislature from Juneau, we also voted to know the cost of any proposed move of Alaska's capital or Legislature. During the legislative session, there must be something else to keep Palin and the legislators busy.

As Palin potentially heads down the road to Washington, D.C., she should remember a quote by Abraham Lincoln: "You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time."

Palin won't fool me again.
