Sarah Palin in three parts

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Generally, we at the River Journal stay away from the kinds of politics that would lend us the appearance of endorsing candidates. There’s a number of reasons for that, one being, why should anyone really care what we think about a political candidate? And an even bigger reason is that it’s a big, eclectic group of writers who come up with the words you read on these pages (almost 38 regular writers at this point in time) and one thing we can agree upon is that we don’t all agree on politics. Then Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was named as the running mate for Republican John McCain’s bid for the presidency and suddenly, politics went Hollywood. I can’t remember this much public interest in politics since Bill struggled to define is.

Herb Huseland (of Bayviews blog fame), in just his third story for this publication, scored a coup—an interview with a local who has actual experience with Palin’s politics and who is, by the way, a Palin fan. You’ll find that story (the ‘light’ side of Palin) here.

In the interest of keeping our publication politically neutral, below right you will find the ‘dark side’ of Palin—a completely made up and hilariously funny (for those who are NOT Palin fans) “Interview with Sarah Palin” written by a newcomer to these pages—Kristi Harrison. Read her story here.

Both Herb and Kristi, by the way, came to us via Dave Oliveria’s (and the Spokesman-Review’s) Huckleberries Online . One of the country’s most successful examples of how newspapers can best utilize the Internet, HBO (like the River Journal) has attracted some mighty fine writers, and we’re more than happy to entice them into our pages.

So in one of Dave’s terms—here’s a “Hat Tip” to Dave and HBO for the support he has given the River Journal—both wittingly and unwittingly. -Trish Gannon
