Sarah Palin: Alaskan Bush Clone?

Their style of governance seens errily similar:

When Ms. Palin had to cut her first state budget, she avoided the legion of frustrated legislators and mayors. Instead, she huddled with her budget director and her husband, Todd, an oil field worker who is not a state employee, and vetoed millions of dollars of legislative projects. ...

...While Ms. Palin took office promising a more open government, her administration has battled to keep information secret. Her inner circle discussed the benefit of using private e-mail addresses. An assistant told her it appeared that such e-mail messages sent to a private address on a “personal device” like a BlackBerry “would be confidential and not subject to subpoena.” ...

Democrats and Republicans alike describe her as often missing in action. Since taking office in 2007, Ms. Palin has spent 312 nights at her Wasilla home, some 600 miles to the north of the governor’s mansion in Juneau, records show.
During the last legislative session, some lawmakers became so frustrated with her absences that they took to wearing “Where’s Sarah?” pins.
Many politicians say they typically learn of her initiatives — and vetoes — from news releases. ...

This is who we want a heartbeat from the presidency?

Didn't we just endure the last 8 years with a president thant was so uninterested in his country that he couldn't be bothered to lift his oun ass out of his comfy home chair at his Crawford mansion and DO SOMETHING when he was told that enemies of America were going to attack his beloved country? A person who spends more time enjoying playing "Look at ME!! I'm Presnit!! I RUULZ U!!! 1!11!!" than actually giving a royal fuck about making sure the machinations of goverment are actually working?

Do we really want more of this?? Huh?
