I remember the good old days when I told someone I was from Alaska and they oooed and aaaed over our big beautiful state. No more. These days the first question is "what do you think about Palin?"
This morning as I was basking in the warm morning sun listening to the gentle lapping of the azure Agean Sea waters on the rocks, my eye drifted to a German tourist reading a newspaper. The huge photo looked very familiar and when I got closer it was "her".
The title of the article is "Mrs. Gunfire" and I was told it was about Palin reloading before her run for the presidency. The tourist told me the article printed in German was "critical" and she went on to say that Palin reminded her of a leader that Germany once had who appealed to the disgruntled masses.
