Ok folks here are a few posts with links to source borrowed from Daily Kos... though I wish I could claim them for myself, they are good. Here is another bit on Palin, I original found it on her Wiki but poof it disapperared minutes after aI read it.... now I wonder how that could happen.

Sarah Palin Dairy Farm -- DEBACLE....

So much for being VP Material....
If using your power to fire people to make
bad decisions is good, then she's your girl..lol
But after you read this, maybe she's just the
same old thing....lol


When on June 6, 2007, the Alaska Creamery Board recommended closing Matanuska Maid Dairy, an unprofitable state-owned business, Palin objected, citing concern for the impact on dairy farmers and the fact that the dairy had just received $600,000 in state money. When Palin realized that the Board of Agriculture and Conservation appoints Creamery Board members, she simply replaced the entire membership of the Board of Agriculture and Conservation.[19][61] The new board, led by businesswoman Kristan Cole, reversed the decision to close the dairy.[61] The new board approved milk price increases offered by the dairy in an attempt to control fiscal losses, even though milk from Washington was already offered in Alaskan stores at lower prices.[62] In the end, the dairy was forced to close, and the state tried to sell the assets to pay off its debts but received no bids.[63][64]
