Governors can't run for higher office

I've only been up 20 minutes, and I'm already pissed off. Thanks, Associated Press! Apparently the new Palin scandal is that she is a sitting governor who is running for higher office. Seriously:

The McCain campaign is speaking for the Alaska state government these days, especially when it wants to ensure that nothing embarrassing about Gov. Sarah Palin emerges before Election Day.

Questions for the Palin administration are most often answered by McCain staffers.

[...]

They have clamped down on information flowing out of state government, especially when it comes to the so-called Troopergate investigation. The inquiry centers on whether Palin abused her power by firing the public safety commissioner after he refused to fire her ex-brother-in-law, a state trooper. The McCain group even attached a "truth squad" moniker to Troopergate news conferences this week.

Uh, I dunno AP, is there not a Lieutenant Governor in Alaska?  Perhaps one who recently conceded a House primary election so that there would be a clearer chain of command in Alaska's government?  Am I missing something?

Exit question: I was only 11, so I don't remember, but were journalists fretting about something this stupid when Bill Clinton was first running for president?
