Sarah Palin Lost the W.A.R.

After weeks of losing ground, the joint body of the Alaska legislature has voted to reject Wayne Anthony Ross as Attorney General.

Our representation has debated at length Governor Palin's controversial appointment and they have been distracted from state business in the critical waning days of the session. I believe that was part of the design of the appointment.

Sarah Palin is 3000 miles, and 3 time zones away in Indiana. She was not present to lobby her appointment.

They have denied Wayne Anthony Ross.

This vote by the joint legislative body reveals a growing bipartisan lack of confidence in Governor Palin's ability to make critical appointments.

The Combined Vote: 23 yeahs 35 nays. DENIED.
