The trustee of the new and improved Sarah Palin Legal Defense Fund is Palin's childhood best friend, Kristan Cole.
Kristan Cole represented Alaska in the Miss America beauty pageant in 1983. Sarah didn't win the Miss Alaska contest 1984, losing to an African American contestant, Maryline Blackburn.
Kristan Sapp, as she was known then, didn't figure among the semi-finalists in the Miss America pageant and Miss California won the crown...
But our Sarah won another crown, she's now the Queen of Alaska, known to the rest of us mortals as governor.
Sarah Palin's court consists of no less than 100 high school and church buddies. Oh, yes! The Queen bestowed the highest honours on the chosen few, drawn from the Mat-Su Valley nobility.
Kristan Cole holds two honourable positions in Queen Sarah's court: she was appointed to the Royalty Oil and Gas Development Board in May 2007. Her term expires in 2012. A month later, Kristan was appointed to the Board of Agriculture and Conservation and her term expires later this year.
All members of the Board of Agriculture and Conservation were beheaded, oops, sacked by Queen Sarah in June 2007 and replaced by people closer to her own heart in what became known as Dairygate.
Kristan's consort, Brad Cole, wasn't left out, being honoured with an appointment to the Alaska Real Estate Commission. He is the current Chairman of that commission.
Who better than the Queen's loyal lady-in-waiting to preside over the backlash against the peasants, otherwise known as the citizens of Alaska?
