Governor Palin just nominated Wayne Anthony Ross as the new attorney general. Talis Colberg had resigned February 9, just days after the State Senate had found Todd Palin and Palin aids in contempt for ignoring subpoenas during the Branchflower/Troopergate investigation. W.A. Ross, who drives around Anchorage in his Hummer with the license plate “WAR”, is less than savory to those who value free speech. In 2003, Ross defended Jeff Webster of Soldotna, Alaska. Webster had dumped gallons of water on war protesters in freezing weather. The protesters wore black and held signs with pictures of soldiers in hospitals that read “Victims of War.” Ross argued Webster was the victim of the protesters since his son was fighting in Iraq. Ross, a anti-choice advocate and NRA official, is a blatant pander to the base Sarah Palin is hoping to woo in the 2012 election. Her statements at the local republican dinner this past weekend bellyaching about not having a McCain campaigner to pray with have gone national. Her need for a prayer assistant is reminiscent of the Pharases and Sadusees warning from the book of Matthew . Palin’s pandering to her national “religeous base” is hurting Alaska. W.A.R. is not an appropriate choice for attorney general…he’s a sound bite. More on Sarah Palin
