Sarah Palin: "She's Honest, and They Aren't"

Adam's provocative slogan for Sarah Palin is "New Energy for America." I've suggested two: "Now she belongs to America" and "She is fresh, and everyone else is tired." At times, as I read about the scandals lappinjg at the heels Alaska's two U. S. Senators (Ted Stevens & Lisa Murkowski) and its one congressional representative (Don Young, creator of "The Bridge to Nowhere"), I think of modifying my latter slogan to: "She is honest, and everyone else is tarnished."

From the Anchorage Daily News, Tuesday, August 21

A new era trailing Stevens? Now comes another national voice, this one The Christian Science Monitor, weighing in on federal authorities’ investigation of Sen. Ted Stevens and the potential political consequences. Coupled with other investigations of political figures, the Stevens affair could mean a changing political climate in Alaska, the newpaper’s writer says.“The state has long abided by the slogan, ‘We don't care how they do it outside’ – ‘outside’ being any place that is not Alaska. But now, it must address national perceptions.

‘Alaskans had better grow up and be very responsible and prove ... that we can be contributors,’ says Governor (Sarah) Palin.”

"And one Republican wants the new era soon. In a letter to the editor of the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Republican state Rep. Mike Kelly of Fairbanks says Stevens and Rep. Don Young should quit after their current terms end. S en. John Cowdery should also go, as should Alaska Republican Party Chairman Randy Ruedrich, Kelly says."

“'Seeing these positive steps the popular and conservative Governor Palin may feel more comfortable working with a team of Republican leaders to restore the confidence of Alaskans in their government and lead Alaska to a bright future,' Kelly says."
