WASILLA, Alaska (CNN) - It was the night before Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was to accept the Republican vice presidential nomination in a nationally televised speech, and Becky Moore couldn't sleep a wink.
She paced around her room and prayed before sending Palin an e-mail wishing her good luck.
"I was so nervous for her," said Moore, a dietitian who lives in Palin's hometown of Wasilla. "I felt like she was my relative, like she was about to prove herself to the country."
As much as Moore was hoping for the best, there was a part of her that didn't want to share her governor and former mayor with the lower 48, a term Alaskans use to refer to their distant countrymen with a mix of playfulness and disdain.
"No matter what happens, we win. If she becomes vice president, the rest of the country will see what a great leader she is. If she loses, we get her back," Moore said.
The night after Palin's speech, Moore and friends from her book club gathered at Wasilla's Pandemonium bookstore to discuss the Jeffrey Eugenides novel "Middlesex."
Please people google.... Anne Kilkinney ....you will find out who the real Sarah Palin is
Well, lets hope you get her back. No way this person is running our country.
Wait until the press puts together all the stuff the McCain campaign wants to keep locked away till after the election. Her popularity will nosedive from that point on.
I really don't care you hear me grrrr...
Is the person in this picture laughing because he realizes with a McCain/Palin ticket he will get see his disabilities benefits cut back?
Her Swift Rise Is The Talk Of Her Town. . . . Her Swift Decline Will Be The Talk Of The Nation!
They Dont Want To Share Her With The Lower 48 . . . Well We Dont Want Her Down Here! . . . Lets Compromise . . . . You Take Her Back And We Will All Bed Happy!
Geeze look at the picture..the Barracuda must have bit his hand off! This woman is getting WAY too much publicity.. yep all smoke and mirrors taking everyon'es eye of og McCain. WELL Cindy watch your back your husband has a roving eye remember?? Oh yeah that was you.. he left his disabled wife and kids for..silly me!!
Palin is a joke. She is a religious fanatic, she believes in censorship, she hunts wolves from aircraft by chasing them until they collapse then shooting them, she misuses her power, she believes the Iraq War, which was started on lies, is a mission from God. Her executive experience means nothing, she is far less experienced than Obama is, her experience consists of mismanaging a small town, and governing a state with less population than some cities.
DEMOCRATS - OWN - CONGRESS
JOB - LOSSES - UP - 6.1%
HOLD - DEMOCRATS - ACCOUNTABLE
Well i bet she is... maybe it is not moose hunting season so thats all they have to talk about
Someone needs to remind Gov. Palin that Jesus Christ was a community organizer (not comparing Obama to Christ...just making a point) and Pontius Pilate was a governor.
Do Alaskans really blubber up for the winter and hibernate?
The way I've heard it from her fellow Alaskans which she governed over, she's racist, sexist and just a plain mean and nasty opportunist.
Google the article on. "Alaskans Speak (In A Frightened Whisper): Palin Is “Racist, Sexist, Vindictive, And Mean”
DON'T BE SCARED CNN. POST THIS!
I am happy for this town, they will be able to claim for eternity that they had the VP republican candidate in one of the elections, and probably say they "almost" had the vicepresident.
