If you’ve been banging your head against the nearest blunt portion of your home because of the poll numbers indicating Sarah Palin gave McCain a much-needed bump in popularity, it may warm your heart to know Palin is not so well loved at home, even among the demographic she was supposed to have swayed.
The Alaskan Women Reject Palin rally in Anchorage yesterday was the biggest in Alaskan history of its type! Over 1400 people showed up to boo Sarah Palin (as opposed to 90 or so supporters). I have a couple relatives in Alaska, and though it is known for its somewhat conservative/libertarian politics, I know most people up there are true fans of honesty, liberty, and ecology. Clearly lots of people there know Palin doesn’t represent what’s best about Alaska or what’s best for them.
