Sarah Palin - a little on her time in Alaska

The New York Times presents a fairly comprehensive investigation into Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin's tenure as mayor of Wasilla and governor of Alaska.

A few highlights:
"In 1997, Ms. Palin fired the longtime city attorney, Richard Deuser, after he issued the stop-work order on a home being built by Don Showers, another of her campaign supporters."

"The Wasilla High School yearbook archive now doubles as a veritable directory of state government."
"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."
