One of our good friends, Eddie Spalten from San Antonio , fishes at the Wildman Lodge on the Alaskan Peninsula .  The lodge is owned by Butch and Kathy Wildman.  The Wildmans spend their winters in Texas and their summers in Alaska .  Kathy’s father and former husband served in the Alaskan legislature for around 30 years so Butch and Kathy know Alaska politics.

 

Eddie emailed Butch and asks Butch what the Wildmans think of Gov. Sarah Palin.  Butch’s unedited email is attached below.  Please read it and forward it to your friends.  This is what the citizens of Alaska think of Sarah Palin!

Thanks, G. Powell

Subject: Who is Sarah

Hi Eddie:

Fishing is good here at Wildman and I rarely have time for politics, but many of our  friends are asking us “Who is Sarah Palin?”  Of course, as Alaskans, Kathy and I are extremely proud of her. We just want to let you know that  Sarah “Barracuda” Palin is a straight shooting, hard charging, get it done gal.  She knows when to listen, how to analyze the facts and how to make a decision, then implement the plan.  She doesn’t do a poll before jumping in with both feet like too many of the Washington types.  She has little legislative experience because she has always held the EXECUTIVE position; in private life, as mayor of Anchorage ’s largest bedroom community or more recently as Governor of our State.  She is a smart, attractive home grown Alaska girl with excellent moral and family values.  She can see what needs to be done and does not hesitate to get it done.

One of our State’s major problems is that its Capital is in Juneau, 500 miles from the nearest road and 800 air miles from the population base which is Anchorage, Wasilla and Fairbanks.  Our legislature and most of the State government is in Juneau and they ALL behave like a bunch of freshmen in a college town.  It has been this way since Statehood in 1959.  When Sarah moved to Juneau , so did accountability and responsibility  When the oil revenue started flown and a barrel of North Slope Crude hit $23.00, these people began spending money like drunken sailors.  You can only imagine what was happenings when oil hit $100.00 a barrel, about the time Sarah took command.  My wife Kathy has first-hand experience with this fiasco, as her father and also her ex-husband were Alaska Legislators who served in Juneau as Senators, Senate President, or members of the State House for a combined period spanning nearly three decades.

About the time Sarah took the HELM as Governor of Alaska, about half of the State legislature was in the pocket of big oil companies or contractors doing big projects for Native Corporations around Alaska, all funded by State oil revenue.   Alaska government was nothing but a good old boys club riding the perpetual wave of prosperity.  This filtered down from the legislature, through the Department of Natural Resources,  Department of Labor and even spilled in to the Public Safety who are supposed to “preserve and protect”.

When Sarah walked  into the Governor’s Mansion, she promptly dismissed the State Trooper detachment assigned to Governor and had her and her husband’s gun case brought in from Wasilla. Then, she got rid of the former Governor’s STATE Jet and told legislators that there were no more free rides, they would have to fly Alaska Airlines, just like her and her family if they wanted to travel.  Next came the nut cutting (the Barracuda part) the heads that rolled were too numerous to name, but when Sarah finished cleaning house, a number of our legislators ended up in jail for on corruption charges, or tendered their resignations along with numerous department heads and those who have been riding the gravy train for way too long,  AND THEN SHE HAD LUNCH.  By the end of the day,

Kathy’s father and former husband

What? Maybe in N.C. but AK?

Seriously, though. The airport in Barrow is partially named after Will Rogers. I think that Sarah Palin is as close to a populist politician I have seen at the, new to her, national level. She is outstanding!

Will Rogers would be proud. She would make an excellent president as far as I'm concerned.
