Alaska broadcaster Shannyn Moore on Sarah Palin

Posted on: September 4, 2008

How does it feel to have Sarah Palin so close to the American vice-presidency?

“A little scary,” said Alaska radio broadcaster Shannyn Moore, in a telephone interview this morning with Nancy Wilson of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

Moore noted the story previous to her interview on the program was on Vice-president Dick Cheney’s visiting Azerbaijan, Georgia and the Ukraine, following the Russian invasion of Georgia. Moore said she believed Palin wouldn’t be up to speed on the issue to do that task.

How did Palin do in her acceptance speech before the Republican National Convention?

Very well, said Moore, adding she was familiar with Palin’s speaking style.

“That wasn’t her,” she said, adding she believed Palin had extensive voice coaching before the speech that speech writers had done for her. Moore said only on a few occasions did some of Palin’s own style come out.

Moore, who has interviewed Palin on several occasions, told Wilson she has much in common with Palin, as an Alaskan, a hunter and teachers as parents, but adds she knows Palin’s record.

Palin’s harshest critics are in her own party, said Moore, adding that Palin’s 80 per cent approval rating is in large part due to giving more oil royalties to Alaskan citizens, citing a typical response to be, “She’s doing a great job. I just received a $1,200 cheque from her.”

Some issues Moore touched on: Alaska under Palin suing the federal government to take polar bears off the endangered species list. A huge issue in Alaska was the recent vote on what was called Ballot Measure 4, on stronger environmental standards to protect the Bristol Bay salmon fishery, reportedly the largest in North America. Stronger environmental standards might have killed the proposed Pebble Mine, which will be, if built, the largest open pit mine in North America. (Interestingly, the mine has a Canadian connection, with shares of Northern Dynasty rising 20 per cent after the vote to narrowly kill the stronger environmental measures.) Moore said Palin supported the mine proponents.

“She is very, very pro-business,” Moore said.

Moore also told Wilson Palin took debt-free Wasilla Alaska to about $20 million in debt when she left after two terms.

My goodness, I should have said hello back. I’ve left this blog for a bit. Thank you, thank you.

With a population of 670,053 people in Alaska, why in the world does Gov. Sarah Palin have a “mental health facility” with a capacity of 500,000 located east of Anchorage near Elmendorf Air Force Base”

Is this a hoax being perpetrated by the Democrats?

Can you “cc” these questions to Shannyn Moore?

You need to take a shower! If our on tv, you should put makeup on and comb your hair. Your comments about Sarah Palin… You are just jealous of her! You being on with Keith Olberman, who is nothing but but a left wing mouth piece who only tells the half truth…too busy under cutting what is best for the American people. Liberals like you and Olberman are a disgrace to the truth and the american people. Get a nose job!

You’ve seen my nose?

Shannyn, would be called a ‘Jealous Bitch’, has No Real Life or Values. She goes along with the Liberal Left when they open their mouths in reference to Palin are AFRAID of her because she ‘speaks’ for the majority of Americans. This also goes for Olberman who is a IDIOT too. Once the Govt. under Obama takes control of everything in our lives, they too will be destroyed by this administration. Some folks in this Great Country just ‘don’t get it’, and have Never read the U.S. Constitution. Our Forefathers wrote the Constitution to Protect the People from Big Govt. and now Big Govt. is trying to control the lives of ALL Americans.

Thanks! I love the quote “word salad” and as a medical practitioner I understand the reference. Keep up the good work
