I heard on the teevee that Palin is also an expert in financial matters...she lives just down the street from a bank...

Some people develop a wish bone where their back bone should be.

Never make the same mistake twice or you'll never get around to all of them.

Maybe not because you couldn't recognize all those foreigners at the UN. You would think you were just walking the streets of New York.

I've had a year of Latin, 2 years of French, a year of German, and 2 years of Spanish. And I've worked with people from all over the world. Maybe I could be Condi Rice. Or would I be too qualified? LOL.

Gee, I've had 3 semesters of Russian Language courses in college, have corresponded with a couple of folks from the Russian Federation over the years, and have been to Mexico once, I am somewhat fluent in Spanish, and have picked up a very small amount of Japanese on the way...suppose I can qualify as a vice presidential candidate? (chuckle) Welcome to the team, BTW.

I've been to Canada twice and Mexico once. That gives me WAY more foreign policy experience than Sarah has!

Welcome - perhaps you can be the next VP candidate! Boy, is she in over her head in national and international politics!

One of my sisters lives in Alaska - sent me the latest AK Palin support ratings - before the nomination, 82%. She is now down to 64%.

Have faith - you aren't really the only proud blue liberal up there. It just feels like it!

Welcome ArmyMom! So glad there are still a few sober minds in the Palin state...actually, I grew up in Juneau and would rather it be represented by Gravel (the guy, not the resource) than Palin (aka Ted Stevens' best friend until he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar).

But never fear, there are more than a few libs in AK. You just need to know where to look. That anti-Palin demonstration in Anchorage is a start. If I can find liberal buddies in Texas, you will certainly find them in AK.

Joy is the best makeup. —Ann Lamott

Greetings from Fort Richardson, Alaska my fellow libs. I'm so happy to have found this group since it is soooo difficult to find my own kind in the Palin state.
Let's see, a little about me...I grew up in California. Both of my parents are union organizers, my mother for the CSEA, and her parents before her were also large union activists. My grandfather was such an enormous proponent of the UAW that after he passed away a Union Hall in Southern California was named after him.
Some people have joked that my siblings and I have blue union blood running through our veins, but I'm actually pretty proud about that.
I'm really looking forward to meeting some of you and hopefully participating in some intelligent group discussion.
