Which is actually silly.  What you're saying is, okay, the governor can pick any Alaskan citizen who is eligible for Congress.  That is a huge wide open door for the governor's whim.  Then you restrict it with, oh, but no one related to you!!  What about a political family where a qualified person is related to the governor?  This is one of the tricky things about direct democracy (ballot items) vs. representative democracy, I guess.

Note, this is an abstract point, not really particular to the current Alaskan governor, who is a moron.

this is part of my "government is reactionary" argument.  we put in laws that say, "oh! but no family members!" in response to nepotism claims.  the same kind of loopholes are apparent in the "no golden parachute" bailout.  the strict language only applies to about 1/2 of a percent of CEOs. 

but, it's not just alaska in this certain palin-dominted news-cycle.  the same thing could happen in all of your states.  if you want to be a realist, no one's bitching about the races in delaware, illinois, and connecticuit.

I'll take it a step further into conspiracy-land.  I think that there are many [laws, executive orders, whathaveyou] drafted and ready to go in case of a disaster that can be leveraged to gain power or money for the writers of said item.  Oh, someone has hacked/brought down the Internet?  You can bet there will be legislation enacted granting broad powers to FBI/CIA/Air Force to protect, monitor, administer various things.

I'm starting to drift back into the news... If only for the comedy bits.

Quote
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said her state intends to sue the U. S. government for listing beluga whales in Cook Inlet as an endangered species.

Palin, the Republican party's vice-presidential nominee for last November's election, said the federal government didn't properly consider actions Alaska has taken to protect the whale before making its ruling.

Huh?

Have you seen Naylin Palin?  It's nice.  There's a sequel now with Obama.

It's not my kind of porn, but it is hilarious when you're really drunk.

Is there actually Sarah Palin porn or is it a look-a-like?
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.
