Damn...why is Alaska so conservative? I know it has always been a pioneer minded state, but it also has a fair number of out of staters who move there. Is it the oil industry?

Geographically it seems hard to believe it is so conservative since it doesn't border the continental US. You have Canada that surrounds it and you've got Russia which is a stone's throw from Palin's house?

AKReport:

Alaska is conservative because tens of thousands of pipline workers from Oklahoma and Texas moved up north in the 1970's.

Was Sarah Palin related to one of those immigrants from Texas and OK?

You had her talking about death panels and how evil Obama's health care plan is, yet when she and her brother were young, they had no health insurance, and they went to Canada to get health from a country practicing socialized medicine. It spells hypocrisy to me.

well Palin is older then the pipeline by a good 10 years, and her family moved from standpoint Idaho.

"It spells hypocrisy to me."

well, not really because 1. Yukon had a free market health system in the early 1960's, and 2. her family paid for the healthcare they got anyway. It was not "free" care.
