. . . er, well. . . maybe not so much. . .
The LA Times is reporting that Sarah Palin met with lobbyists for oil and natural gas companies all the time but never with environmentalists, native groups or anyone else that might have gotten in the way of making money off Alaska’s natural resources. And oh, yeah: she used to bake cookies for journalists and call them on their birthdays.
At the risk of sounding like I support Sarah Palin, I think it only natural that a state like Alaska be a little corrupted by money. After all, if it weren’t for all the monied interests down here in the Lower 49 greedily gobbling up their resources, Alaska would be a big, frozen welfare state. But don’t lie about it.
