If you need any more proof that Sarah Palin is not your average politician, click here to tag along with the Palin family as they work their salmon fishing site in Bristol Bay. (Note: The Palins do not appear until a minute into the video, but the rest is devoted to them.) Her devotion to keeping in touch with the "Alaskana" lifestyle very much reminded me of Ronald Reagan's desire to spend time at Rancho Del Cielo in California, keeping himself in touch with who he was and what he stood for.
Yes, you read that correctly, I just compared Palin to Reagan. Get used to it, because Palin reminds me of President Reagan more than any other politician that I have ever seen - and I have every intention of continuing to highlight her Reaganesque qualities.
The video also illustrates Palin's tireless commitment to free-market ideals - notice that she proposes opening the Alaska fish processing market to more competition in order to remedy the fact that there aren't enough processing outfits to handle the plentiful supply of fish. And if making it easier for fishermen to sell their goods means allowing (gasp!) foreign companies to set up shop, then Sarah Palin is all for it. Bravo, Governor; keep fighting the good fight!
