Politics can be mundane, but rarely boring

From Dewie Whetsell, a fisherman from Alaska.

By Dewie Whetsell, Alaskan Fisherman.

The last 45 of my 66 years I’ve spent in a commercial fishing town in
Alaska . I understand Alaska politics but never understood national
politics well until this last year. Here’s the breaking point: Neither
side of the Palin controversy gets it. It’s not about persona, style,
rhetoric, it’s about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention
the things that I’m about to mention here.

1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because
as soon as Palin took the Governor’s office away from a fellow
Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the
Republican’s “Corrupt Bastards Club” (CBC) and sent them packing. Many
of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits
The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and
singing, “la la la la” (well, you know how they are). Name another
governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.

2. Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to
protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and
enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called “ACES.” Exxon
(the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them,
“don’t let the door hit you in the stern on your way out.” They stayed,
and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy
rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell
in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country
that has done anything similar.

3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor’s office is
she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects,
known as “pork.” She went through the list, took 85! % of the m and placed
them in the “when-hell-freezes-over” stack. She let locals know that if
we need something built, we’ll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured
she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor’s jet
because it was extravagant. Maybe she could use the money she saved by
dismissing the governor’s cook (remarking that she could cook for her
own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining
that she already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security
force (never mentioning – I imagine – that she’s packing heat herself).
I’m still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.

4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed “gosh and golly” mannerism, she
also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural
gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction
project in the history of North America. No one else could do it
although they tried. If that doesn’t impress you, then you’re trying too
hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while
baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.

5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a
place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they
couldn’t start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an
investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. Then,
she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They
protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them
that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.

6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for
electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her
plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewables by 2025. We ar! e alread y at 25%.
I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and
persona Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that’s
just a cover-up. I’m still waiting to hear from liberals the names of
other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half
years. I won’t be holding my breath.

By the way, she was content to return to AK after the national election
and go to work, but the haters wouldn’t let her. Now these adolescent
screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them
what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without
warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known

You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media,
along with the democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to
discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers,
dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter
ex-presidents’ wives.

So “You go, Girl.” I only wish the men in Washington had your guts,
determination, honesty, and morals.

I rest my case. Only FOOLS listen to the biased media.
