What seems obvious is palin is a rather immature, spoiled brat.
This is a state which can afford to shut down entire farming regions for the sake of a "Delta Smelt(TM)"
In fact a friend of mine was visiting friends in Californicatia recently and informs me she was staying in a house in a neighborhood in which the cheapest house sold for around $5,000,000 USD and that the entire neighborhood smelled exactly like seal **** on a permanent basis for this reason: the envirowhacks running the political system out there will not allow anybody to touch a white shark OR a seal, and the former have the later penned up on the teaches and will not allow them to go out and use the restoom in the ocean as was their wont 60 years ago.
You see, in 1955 when Ike was still running things in America i.e. the second to last time America ever had a real president, somebody would have simply gone out in a 30' boat with a length of nylon rope, a big hook, a rubber seal and one of those Marlin lever-action 45/70s and the problem would have resolved itself in less than a day.
Nonetheless, if I ask myself how much I'd
charge anybody to set foot in a place where people happily pay $5,000,000 to smell seal **** on a 24/7 basis, the answer is probably going to be AT LEAST $100,000,000, and i'm not even on any sort of a speaking circuit like Gov. Palin is.
