Sarah Palin says goodbye to Senator Kim Elton, who's moving to Washington DC, having accepted the job of Director of Alaska Affairs for the U.S. Department of the Interior:
“Senator Elton pledged his allegiance to President Obama last summer. We wish him well as he moves on and hope that he uses this job for Alaska’s benefit - to advance the state’s oil and gas issues, including the natural gas pipeline, and to work diligently to remove the barriers imposed upon all states that want to open up their shores to off-shore drilling. I hope he can represent Alaskans by opening ANWR, conveying the importance of responsible mining development, and building roads - all issues crucial to the future of our state.”
- Off-shore drilling, ANWR drilling, roads to drilling.
- Pipeline pipeline pipeline pipeline pipeline. Roads to the pipeline.
- Responsible mining. Mmmmm...
They carry out their business in a very responsible way: frequent oil spills on the North Slope, which Sarah hopes to extend off-shore and to ANWR, toxic dumping in Cook Inlet, Bristol Bay and anywhere else that takes their fancy. Sarah will always do whatever she can to prevent any threatened species from being protected. She will ignore evidence that toxic dumping poisons the salmon consumed by families, causing health problems that lead to birth defects.
That's the price Alaskans pay for Sarah Palin's allegiances.
