Sarah Palin's posturing
Sarah Palin appears to be backing off her aggressive stance against accepting some of the federal stimulus money for Alaska, and some lawmakers are disputing whether she "rejected" any money at all.
After Palin's announcement last week, the Empire asked her whether a decision to accept only a portion of the money meant there was a rejection of the remainder.
"If that's the way you want to look at it," Palin responded.
Well, well... she may be backpedaling now, she may claim the Legislature forced her to accept the stimulus money. Sarah wants the best of both worlds: to be seen as a fiscal conservative, yet flexible and compassionate.
What's going to be remembered by Alaskans and people further afield is her cynical, callous, self-serving posturing to impress her idiotic adoring followers in the Lower 48.
As they say: "It's the thought that counts..."
