VP Palin Plans to Drill for Oil Under the Library of Congress
A flash forward to January 21, 2009 if the McCain-Palin ticket wins the election from the editors of Shelf Awareness:
In her first official act, Vice President Sarah Palin has asked for the resignation of Librarian of Congress James H. Billington. [...]
"We can begin with test bores that will quickly show whether there are natural resources beneath the Library that could be extracted for the benefit of all Americans. If that doesn't pan out, I believe that with some outside-the-Washington-box thinking we can come up with some cool adaptations for what's left of the [Library of Congress} building.
"That big room with the dome would make an ideal ice rink, and there's plenty of space elsewhere for a shooting range. Part of the building ought to be converted to a hotel, which would be a much more convenient place for my successors as mayor and governor to stay when they come to Washington to seek even more federal earmarks for Alaska. I know from experience that it can be like an Ironman race going from the hotel to K Street to the Capitol to fancy restaurants and back--and not a mooseburger in sight!"
If there's black gold underneath LC, let's find it but turn LC into a multi-purpose ice rink-shooting range-hotel! This makes me want to get a Librarians Against Palin bumper sticker. BTW, if you see a list of books Palin wanted to ban it's a fake.
And Now for Something Completely Different. Ed Oswald (BetaNews) takes a look at Palin's record on technology issues. For example, Palin's record as governor included the Alaska Health Care Transparency Act, which helped state residents access affordable health care. The Act included tele-medicine and tele-health initiatives for providing care to the state's most remote municipalities.
