Alaskan Author: Wasilla Most Unattractive Town In Alaska and Palin an Airhead

Alaskan author Charles Wohlforth who wrote a piece in The New Republic
about how he and his wife broke into laughter when he heard that Sarah Palin was McCain's choice said today, "I was writing a travel book and I told my readers, 'avoid Wasilla. It's the most unattractive town in Alaska and it will remind you of the worst sprawl development you've seen anywhere in the country.'"

Of his first impression of when he met Mayor Palin?

"I was just really surprised because she just seemed like an airhead, there just wasn't anything there."

Here more of that part of the interview below:
