It seems that everyone has posted this beautifully reported piece on Palin's cronyism in Alaska. But one thing that a lot of people have missed is the influence of Puff Daddy on Palin:

Dan Fagan, a prominent conservative radio host and longtime friend of Ms. Palin, urged his listeners to vote for her in 2006. But when he took her to task for raising taxes on oil companies, he said, he found himself branded a "hater."

I don't know about you, but the thought of Palin taking us all to the Apocalypse while banging the remix of Around The World makes me feel all warm.
