Sarah Palin: More Experienced than John McCain

Republican ops on TV are all blond and a-grin to pronounce that Gov. Palin has in fact "more executive experience" than both legislators Obama and Biden!

Touche (grin grin?)

Actually, by that logic, Palin has more executive experience than...

ole legislatin' John McCain.

Ahhh, that's what Palin brings to the ticket: Experience.

Question: Contrary to wide claims by commentators, Palin was not a small town mayor just two years ago. She was a small town mayor from 1996-2002 (please). In 2004 she resigned in protest from the Alaska Oil and Gas Commission, and in 2006 she ran for governor. My question is: What was she doing 2004-2006? Not hinting at anything, just curious.
