Not a joke at all, only to a Liberal but get the Book titled "Unlikely Liberal: Sarah Palin's Curious Record as Alaska's Governor" by Matthew Zencey then you will understand why palin is a Liberal which the Liberal News Media didnt want to talk about.<quoted text>
I think the reason that "Indy" won't answer that is because he's been joking with us all along. How else do you explain his latest decree?
Palin is a liberal??? That has to be a joke, right?
Palin is widely seen as a conservative social ideologue, her political career in Alaska was marked by a progressive fiscal approach that is at odds with her current right-wing Republican identity. A self-described red-meat conservative, the partisan “pit bull with lipstick” had been a bipartisan, pragmatic, and surprisingly progressive governor who raised taxes on Big Oil and distributed oil revenue to every Alaskan. She also rankled her social-conservative supporters by vetoing an anti–gay rights measure and placing a pro-choice woman on the Alaskan Supreme Court. But her mishandling of accusations of ethics violations made her politically vulnerable at home, and her foray into the partisan brawling of national politics broke apart her bipartisan governing coalition in Alaska’s capital. After her failed 2008 bid for the vice presidency, Palin spent one more legislative session trying to run a big government state while maintaining her national stature as a small-government conservative, but it was politically untenable. With no hope of achieving any major political accomplishments, plus a growing strain on her family life, huge legal bills, and a large book advance in hand, she resigned.
Alaska pundit says Palin ‘channeled’ Karl Marx,‘rolled out communism’ in passing a “Venezuela-style” oil tax
Posted March 28, 2013
In Alaska, a heated battle is being fought over whether to reverse one of Sarah Palin’s signature accomplishments as governor, the drastically increased oil tax system that she called “ACES, Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share.”
As I note in Unlikely Liberal, Palin’s new oil tax was the largest tax increase in Alaska’s history. The attack on her oil tax legacy is being led by Republicans, including her replacement as governor, Sean Parnell (a former oil company lobbyist); most of those defending Palin’s oil tax Democrats.
