Scaring the bejeebers out of us
Picture above of Palin and her fellow Wasilla Council members (NY Times)
From today's NY Times, a profile of Sarah Palin, the clean-government reformer. This is worth reading in its entirety - excerpts below of my favorite bits:
Interviews show that Ms. Palin runs an administration that puts a premium on loyalty and secrecy. The governor and her top officials sometimes use personal e-mail accounts for state business; dozens of e-mail messages obtained by The New York Times show that her staff members studied whether that could allow them to circumvent subpoenas seeking public records.Remind you of Dick Cheney - maybe just a little?
The administration’s e-mail correspondence reveals a siege-like atmosphere. Top aides keep score, demean enemies and gloat over successes. Even some who helped engineer her rise have felt her wrath.Um, more like Cheney than Cheney himself.
Witnesses and contemporary news accounts say Ms. Palin asked the librarian about removing books from the shelves. The McCain-Palin presidential campaign says Ms. Palin never advocated censorship.Me too, my friend. Me too.
