OMG! Look at all the Alaskans who HATE Palin

Thank you, Politico, for providing today's DNC talking points.  It turns out that Sarah Palin is a horrible pick because Alaskans hate her:

It will be fascinating to see the Alaska Republican delegation front and center at this week’s Republican National Convention now that Alaska governor Sarah Palin will be on the ticket.

This is a state party whose establishment faction, to put it mildly, isn’t too enamored with their reform-minded governor.

This is a state party whose chairman, Randy Ruedrich, has been feuding with Palin for years. Palin exposed Ruedrich for ethical violations in 2004 when both served on the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission — and their relationship has been frosty ever since.

Ruedrich declined to comment at the historic nature of having an Alaskan on the national ticket for the first time in the state’s history.
Gee, I guess those 80-90% approval ratings were just a fluke!  Who would have thought that running against both the Democratic and (to some extent) the Republican parties in her state would leaver her with a few enemies?

Exit question: Why hasn't the Politico gone to great lengths to highlight the frosty relationships between Sen. Obama and his opponents in Chicago?
