One representation, though, leaped out at a lower 48er:
— Sarah Palin was governor of Alaska from 2006 to 2009, and the Republican candidate for vice president in 2008.2006-2009, eh? Sounds like three years, not 20 months. Wasn't Palin elected in 2006? Yes, but she took office on Dec. 4 -- so her tenure includes 27 days of that year. Sort of like a person who was born in 1899 and died in 2001 claiming a life spanning three centuries.
Would that all Palin's massagings of the truth stuck this close to the facts. Halcro, Mudflats et al, have at these sunny assertions:
The state’s government has made safeguarding resources a priority; when I was governor, for instance, we created a petroleum-systems-integrity office to monitor our oil and gas infrastructure for any potential environmental risks.
Over 20 percent of Alaska’s electricity currently comes from renewable sources, and as governor I put forward a long-term plan to increase that figure to 50 percent by 2025.
In Alaska, we’re developing the largest private-sector energy project in history — a 3,000-mile, $40 billion pipeline to transport hundreds of trillions of cubic feet of natural gas to markets across the United States.
