I think Sarah's onto something here. Alaskan's don't need more federal bureaucrats telling them what to do. Alaska is unique. I'm guessing that she wants to keep it that way.

Oh please, old cynic, that is ridiculous! It has nothing to do with "federal bureaucrats" telling her what to do! That is not why she turned down money. This is a woman who calls herself an "energy expert" and then turns down money for energy efficiency programs in Alaska. She is an idiot!

Plus in her egocentric brain, she thinks she is qualified to be president of this country! Why would anyone vote for someone who constantly cuts down the federal government. She should really go back to the Alaskan Independence Party (AIP) where she belongs and she and Rick Perry can form their own country. She's a nut and most of the country knows that.

Governor Palin is a great American leader who was right to fight the evil America hating Obama regime of the Democrats and to veto the fraudulent effort of the fake Islamic Muslim Dictator of the Luo Tribe jungles of Kenya.
The Obama Marxist-Islamic ruthless and clueless dictatorship uses the American taxpayer money as a tool to take control over the 51 Unites States of America although the US Constitution gives each state including Alaska sovereignty over the dictatorship of the Federal Government of Obama.
It is time for the States of America to declare their sovereignty and to resist the take over by the Obama regime who support the enemies of America Islamic terrorists and the Iranian regime and their nukes.
Governor Sara Palin is right to fight the fascistic media of the Jewish Elite of George Soros and the New York Times who uses the Pravda methods of the Stalinist KGB regime of Russia to convert America to Marxist welfare country. Way to go Sara Palin!!! It is time for the American people to save America from the radical Islamic tyrant and the fascistic Marxist anti-American Democrat losers.

Remember Exxon-Mobil is drilling in Alaska now. And Perry did his double talk and is now going to eccept 11 mil. Don't try and out guess these people.

I take it that you're still OK with the "hope and change" thingy. OK, just keep that thought as we progress. Just one favor though, please - When the wheels come off remember your position. I don't want to hear the excuses and the spin. And remember again, Bush is gone.
