Not too many things rhyme with Wasilla. Gorilla, mozilla, Godzilla. That’s pretty much it. Vanity Fair takes a most interesting look at Sarah Palin –her grass roots, her rise to power, her brief venture with the McCain campaign, and how it all happened. The article is entitled “It Came from Wasilla.”
Think what you want about Palin. She is a very complex character who reveals what she wants you do know about her. Her best friend and closest advisor is her husband Todd. They make a striking couple. She is an Alaskan. Alaskans aren’t quite like other people. The fact that they are removed from the 48 contiguous states makes them different. Alaska wasn’t a state until 1959. That makes them different.
Most interesting was the section of article about Palin fitting in with the McCain campaign. There were many surprises. Everyone still with the campaign has been very circumspect about what they say. Most information must have come from those no longer working for the Senator. Very few people are quoted. It is an interesting read. Fans of Palin will not like the article. Neither will her enemies. Those with a more neutral point of view will find the article very informative.

[UPDATE: Sarah Palin has just announced she will not run for governor of Alaska in 2010. Speculation is she will be preparing for national politics. She has also said she will transfer power to the Lt. Governor. ]
