Governor Palin's campaign to oust Representatives Nick Rahall and Alan Mollohan will be interesting to watch. West Virginians have tended to dislike outside interests coming into the state and telling them what to do, even if they agree with them. I guess it is part of that "Montani Sempre Libre" spirit.
If ousting them is good for West Virginia, then I am sure the fine citizens of my state will oust them. But if ousting them is for the good of some outside interest (National Republican Party), that is a different story.
Reported by AP via The Charleston Gazette Palin says "We're going to reclaim the power of the people from those who disregarded the will of the people." My only question is does "We're" refer to National Republicans or Palin and her followers, or the fine folks who live here?
More than a few will view her statement as saying that the people of West Virginia do not know what is good for them. So we will help them.
