Palin's Approval Rating Breaks Record!

Four polls taken over the past two months indicate that Sarah Palin is the most popular politician in Alaska history!

According to NBC affilliate KTUU, a February poll by Marc Hellenthal found that 73% of Alaskans approve of Gov. Palin's job performance, while only 7% disapprove. A statewide poll conducted by David Dittman in late March and early April produced "very similar results". Some reports have even placed Palin's approval at an astonishing 83%!

Previously, the only two Alaskan political figures to top 70% job approval were U.S. Senator Ted Stevens and the late Governor Jay Hammond (after he left office). However, both Hammond and Stevens had disapproval ratings in the 20% range at their peak popularity, meaning that Gov. Palin is significantly more popular than either of them.

Sarah Palin knows how to get results, she knows how to communicate with ordinary people, and she has relentlessly refused to play politics with major issues like the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA). That's why Alaskans love her, and that's why the rest of America needs her.

In closing, I just want to leave you with a recent quote from Gov. Palin:

"I've never been a real big fan of politics or political games or politicians, for that matter, and I think that's shared by other Alaskans, too. They just want the job to get done here in this administration".

Now that's the type of leadership this country needs!

Palin Fights for Free-Market Ideals

I don't know why I didn't find this news report earlier (it probably had to do with my insanely busy life outside cyberspace), but it illustrates exactly the type of thinking that led me to believe that Gov. Palin should be considered as a national-level candidate

One of the main components of Palin's Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA) is a bidding process open to any company interested in building a natural gas pipeline through Alaska. However, the "big three" North Slope oil producers (Exxon Mobil, BP, ConocoPhillips) are fighting tooth and nail for a return to the policies of the previous administration, which would have allowed only these three companies to have been considered as builders.

Bravo to governor Palin for ensuring that the people of Alaska get the most bang for their buck when building this gasline. Any good conservative knows that the free market will always produce better results than an artificial, government-mandated monopoly, and Sarah Palin is obviously no exeption.

Video of America's next Vice-President - Gov. Sarah Palin!

I'm asking you all to consider Governor Palin as a potential Vice-President, so you need to know who this woman is. Here are links to some of the videos that helped convince me:

News segments from KTUU, Anchorage's NBC affiliate

These two short videos illustrate Sarah Palin's humility, energy, and down-to-earth personality - all factors that would endear her to a national electorate.

"Palin Wins in a Landslide" - Watch Sarah Palin react as she wins the 2006 GOP primary for Governor of Alaska - clobbering opponents John Binkley and incumbent Gov. Frank Murkowski.

"Palins are Here" - Newly-elected Governor Palin and her family arrive at the Alaska Governor's mansion for the first time.

Governor Palin's Inaugural Address

Click here to watch Gov. Palin's inaugural address, courtesy of CSPAN. Please note that this video is a group of inaugural addresses from governors. I believe that Paln is second, so you will have to fast-forward through New York's Elliot Spitzer.
