  •  OMG...Back to the future for Wasilla (0+ / 0-)

    REMEMBER...in Back to the Future II when McFly's hometown has a dystopian alternate present when things weren't working out and Biff is in charge?  Instead of a forward thinking positive present everything is darkly stunted and perverse and run down...A big Casino (sport center?) the place in debt, full of meth labs, the police chief fired, bars open late drunk driving problem, there's gravel pits and Giant Walmarts everywhere and McFly's mom is stuck with an AIC good old boy...

    Hmmm the two stories appear to be getting fused here...BUT they are parallel and strangely resonant with each other...what if Palin had never been mayor? Lower taxes, no debt, bars closed at 2 AM not 5 AM, the police maybe doing better at Meth lab suppression etc. who knows... maybe people less likely to want to be Meth heads or desperate for spare cash...
