Overview:Unlikely Liberal: Sarah Palin's Curious Record as Alaska's Governor - A conservative social ideologue, Sarah Palin's political career in Alaska was marked by a progressive fiscal approach that is at odds with her current right-wing Republican identity. The self-described red-meat, conservative, partisan "pitbull with lipstick" had been a bipartisan, pragmatic, and surprisingly progressive governor who raised taxes on Big Oil and distributed the oil revenue to every Alaskan. She also rankled her social-conservative supporters by vetoing an anti-gay rights measure and placing a pro-choice woman on the Alaskan Supreme Court. But her mishandling of accusations of ethics violations made her politically vulnerable at home, and her foray into the partisan brawling of national politics broke apart her bipartisan governing coalition in Alaska's state capital. After her failed 2008 bid for the vice presidency, Palin spent one more legislative session trying to run a big government state while maintaining her national stature as a small-government conservative, but it was politically untenable. With no hope of achieving any major political accomplishments, the growing strain on her family life, huge legal bills, and a large book advance in hand, she resigned. Zencey, an editor at the Anchorage Daily News during Sarah Palin's tenure, shows how the Sarah Palin who was so popular in Alaska is starkly different from the Sarah Palin who is now so popular with the Tea Party.
