Bob Rivers needs proof she's not stupid (according to the thread over at FR)?
Won the Alaskan governor seat with 51% of the vote in a 5 way race.I hope someone posts this at FR (I have no desire to get into THAT psychotic hell-hole again)...this is a SHORT list, to be sure.
She took on the CBC (Corrupt Bastards Club - i.e. corruption within the power structure of her own party) and got all of them tossed out of public service and quite a few, including former governor MURKOWSKI, some prison time.
She took on "Big Oil" in Alaska and won.
She implemented fiscal policies in Wasilla (as mayor)...the growth Wasilla experienced is, to this day, talked about in the Statehouse in Juneau.
Of course, then I scroll down about 5 more posts and find a FAR more comprehensive list than mine!!!
