Wailin’ About Palin part II

O.K. Now we are officially worried.

Palin came up snake-eyes on tonight’s Katie Couric CBS interview when asked to name one Supreme Court decision (other than Roe vs Wade) that she disagreed with. Getting past the fact that her response made for incredibly awkward television viewing – she couldn’t name one – we are amazed that she didn’t mention the horrible screwing of Alaska Natives and Alaska people in general by the Supreme Court THIS YEAR. In fact, back then she said the Supreme Court’s decision to even review the case was a “kick in Alaska’s collective gut” and she called Exxon’s lengthy appeals “a case of justice delayed being justice denied.” After the ruling (and only three months ago) she told an Alaskan newspaper, “I am extremely disappointed with today’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Look, we’re not in the tank for one party or another, but the fact of the matter is that we are concerned for the well-being of our Native budz and gals up North and we figure they had something good coming to them after all damage that had been done to their livelihoods because of the Exxon Valdez oil spill.  And when the Supreme Court stepped in and took away $2 BILLION dollars from the award, that had to hurt.  And we think that Governor Palin was right in condemning what happened.  We just don’t understand how she could forget that.  What do you think?
