I don't hate people unless I meet them personally and they give me a reason. I just don't let my c*ck make political decisions for me.
She hasn't done anything remarkable. Certainly nothing that would make her the "smartest governor...in 20 years."
You never heard of her before she was picked for VP. As close as she was with Ted Stevens, you probably would have heard about her when she got indicted.

Being the largest recipient of Federal tax money per capita and sitting on top of huge oil reserves which pay dividends to the state hardly qualifies as "doing something right".

Most of the country could tell you the cast of "Deadliest Catch" before they could tell you who the governor is or was.
Good for you that you can keep up with minor players in the political system. I generally just try to keep up with my own.

If she were male and a high school football star would you have felt compelled to mention that in your analysis of the person as a former governor? If she were unattractive would THAT get mentioned? None of that has anything to do with the price of tea in china and shouldn't even be mentioned in intelligent conversation unless you chose to not put yourself in that category?
If she looked like the south end of a north bound bulldog she wouldn't have made it to where she is.
I think at least 80% of the men that "support" her harbor fantasies of how she might pay them back for their vote.
Just my opinion.
