Poor, poor misunderstood and persecuted Sarah:
Accompanied by a retinue of advisers, she took a seat at one end of a conference table and listened passively as Gary Stevens, the president of the Alaska Senate, a former college history professor and a low-key Republican with a reputation for congeniality, expressed delight at her presence.
Would the governor, a smiling Stevens asked, like to share some of her plans and proposals for the coming legislative session?
Palin looked around the room and paused, according to several senators present. "I feel like you guys are always trying to put me on the spot," she said finally, as the room became silent.
Oh, that bastard. Expecting her to be prepared to do her job by talking actual policy at an official governmental retreat. The nerve.
Clearly that mean ole Republican Senate president was out to get her by expecting competence.
It is to laugh.
PS — Remember the per diem payments flap when poor persecuted Sarah got caught paying herself to live in her own home, eat her own food and travel to and fro on the AK dime against state regs and all sorts of other tax laws?
Guess who has to pay back taxes. Poor, poor Sarah.
