Another smear on Palin from a Florida newspaper

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) _ Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin routinely notes her husband's Yup'ik Eskimo roots. But those connections haven't erased doubts about her in a community long slighted by the white settlers who flocked to Alaska and dominate its government.

Since she took office in 2006, many Alaska Natives say they've felt ignored when she made appointments to her administration, sided with sporting interests over Native hunting rights and pursued a lawsuit that Natives say seeks to undermine their ancient traditions.

(folks, it's well known that most media outlets both paper and TV are way left of center and support Obama and many don't even try to be objective in their reporting - many have been criticized for the way they treated Hillary, so now rather than attacking Palin as a women, they've latched on to Alaska's Native population - believe me, Alaska is no different than the lower 48 states and with a congressional black caucus in Congress, Indian Issues are in real trouble!)
