Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

One note about that Canadian pipeline.

As I understand it, the reason that there was a push for a pipeline was to deliver North Slope gas to the lower 48 instead of liquefying it and sending it to Asia.

That suggests to me that she's not really a neo-liberal.  Particularly since Alaska is unique in that it gains revenue off of oil and gas extraction in the state.  And putting that gas on to the  world market would likely have made the state more money than sending it to the lower 48.

Possible but doubtful.  Remember that Todd Palin is a BP guy, and BP has, potentially, a good-sized stake in that pipeline.

I really think that she's sort of a wild card.  But to be  honest, the more I learn about her, the more I like.

I was suspicous because of the whole troppergate, but if the Washingon Post is right, then I think that Palin was on the ball trying to get his ass fired.  I mean this stuff is crazy.

Todd Palin, the governor's husband, had brought Monegan a dossier of information on Wooten compiled by Todd and a private investigator. Monegan looked at the information and determined that, "There was no new evidence, no new complaints." In 2005, when Gov. Palin's sister filed for divorce, her father had lodged several complaints with state police against Wooten: using a Taser on his 10-year-old stepson, shooting a moose without a permit and drinking beer while driving a patrol car.

An investigation sustained the allegations regarding the moose hunt and the Taser, and later also sustained the drinking charge after at first finding it unsupported. Documents say Wooten was reprimanded and suspended.

This guy that Palin is said to have gone after looks like he had it coming.
