Oh Sarah Palin. We certainly had fun with you during the election. But don't worry, we haven't forgotten you now that you're back in Alaska. There's so much fun to be had with local government!
For example, Palin and the Juneau Democrats are trying to pick someone to fill a vacant senate seat. The Democrats submit names for Palin's approval. Except she doesn't seem to understand that you can't just put whoever you want in the seat instead. It's been a fun game of "Democrats submit a name, Palin rejects and submit her own name, Democrats reject her back." See it in action:
"Then, the Democratic Senators submitted another list. This time there were three names on it. And the governor chose a name that was not on that list - Joe Nelson. Now, the Dems were really starting to get irked. Had the governor completely lost her mind? This was a matter of principle. She was supposed to choose from a list of names they submitted, not make up the rules as she went along just because she didn’t get her way."
Can you imagine if this woman had made it to the White House? Thank God Joe Biden reminded her about what the vice president's job actually was.
I hope by the time the next election comes around, people will see that this woman doesn't care about how governments are actually run. And that does not make her a maverick.
