Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has been a vice presidential candidate for about 10 days. In 10 days we’ve learned that Palin likes more than just moose burgers. She is a right-wing ideologue who believes that the purpose of government is to support big business. She was swept into office under the guise of a reformer. Yet in recent days, we have learned that she’s been milking the Alaskan government. Yesterday, we learned that she charged the citizens of Alaska for meals while she wasn’t traveling. Today, we learned that she has charged the citizens of Alaska so that her family can be with her as she travels. Republicans always like to talk about running the government as if it was a business, what business do you know can travel with your spouse and kids and charge that as a business expense?
There are days when you just struggle. Whether it is football, the stock market, making burgers or making birdies. Tiger had one of those days. He couldn’t find the fairway at times. On 13 his second shot was so far off line that he took a drop. Yet, when it was all said and done, he needed a birdie to force a playoff.
