Palin to visit Washington

Governor Sarah Palin

We hear that Native-lovin’ Governor Sarah Palin is coming to Bellevue on Wednesday the 24th for a McCain fundraising lunch or dinner and rally.  Palin’s trip to Bellevue gives us a good excuse to chow down at Chipotle and buy some new lacrosse gear at BreakAway Sports.   But we’ll be on the look out for “First Dude” Todd Palin and maybe even get to ask him about the Native Vote up there in Alaska.  We’d like to get comp’ed in to the event in case anyone is wondering.

  1. I don’t know about any other Natives but you couldn’t pay me to attend an event for that crazy lady from Alaska. I think it is appalling that Palin and her husband try to play up he is Yupik. I give that a big whatever. I say the same about Dino Rossi. The rez I come from call them wannabe’s or bad apples.

    My Grandma used to say, “If you are Native, then act like it”…..

  2. What does a “Native” act like? Who decides if you act enough “Native” to be “Native”? However you define “Native”; it’s never to late for anyone to let manifest their Native Values. One that I practice as a Native is reciprocal behaviour. If Todd Palin and Dino Rossi are “Native”, let the “Native community” welcome them in and let them know they carry the weight and responsibility of all those who have come before them… and as representatives they should understand those obligations. Insulting them does not help in this matter.
