Wasilla is a Dying Town

September 19, 2008

This is a depressing story. I have a feeling that Sarah Palin’s popularity in Alaska is in for a huge fall.

Sarah Palin’s Dead Lake


  • Lake Lucille (the one Sarah Palin uses for the photo of her fishing) is dead. It can’t support fish. So she was fishing there, but she wasn’t catching anything.
  • Residents of Wasilla are angry that the unbridled development Sarah Palin urged along as mayor has escalated the killing of the lake.
  • Wasilla is an ugly stretch of big box stores, courtesy of Sarah Palin.
