RedState: Alaska - Palin 101
- OK, I've written most of this stuff before in various posts but I'll sumarize since there'll be new interest today.Alaska is NOT a conservative state in the sense that say some Southern states are. Socially it is very libertarian. There's a strong religious element here, but there are far more bars than churches. Marajuana is de facto legal in small quantities and de jure legal in the 1st Judicial District. Like most Alaska Republicans, Palin is religious but not ostentatiously so.
