crookedshoes,

You wouldn't be expected to know this but the Palin Administration loathed Juneau. I chose not to meet her! Not to say it would have been easy. She essentially never stayed at the local Governor's Mansion, preferring instead to bilk Alaskans out of thousands of dollars in travel stipends so she could stay in her neighborhood of Wasilla (or Wa-silly now) 600 air miles away DURING session. The list goes on and on and she was no friend to science.

My wife's friend met her at a shoe store (how unexpected!) and chatted her up. An otherwise friendly politician I was told, so long as power and responsibility was kept the hell away from her.
