Sarah Palin hot links (updated)
There's a very well researched post about Sarah Palin and the Arctic Cat on What Do I Know. It's interesting to look at the issue from the point of view of the sponsors. The implications for the governor are more serious than she thinks.
I had heard about the video linked below but had not seen it. The video was made shortly after the election and contains the usual word salad and snarkiness about the media. Please note how she talks about working well with the Democrats. After the fiasco regarding the appointment to the vacant Juneau Senate seat, we have to take her statements with a very large pinch of salt. Before I forget: Sarah Palin says she offered PROOF that Trig is her son...
The video can't be embeded, so here's the link: ADN video
Two further links to Arctic Cat stuff: here and here.
UPDATE: I'll keep adding Arctic Cat links as they come in (thanks, PP!).
The question is, does it seem OK to use your spouse's position as a high profile politician to promote your sponsor? That's what Todd Palin did during the campaign and continues to do to this day. Arctic Cat doesn't miss an opportunity to use the connection to Sarah Palin to advertise their products. The Palin family benefits financially from Arctic Cat... the ethical implications are multiplying. Link 1, Link 2
