I’m generally pretty sensitive about the intersection of campaigning and governing, which makes the Alaska Governor’s splash page all the weirder. It’s not over-the-top, but by any reasonable standard, it’s a pretty clear campaign statement:

“It is the honor of my life to represent you as your Governor, and over the next two months I will continue to do so. As the mother of five, I know how to multi-task, and I will continue to promote the path of reform that we set out on together in the state of Alaska.”

“It is a great privilege to be John McCain’s running mate and to be considered by the American people for the Vice Presidency. This honor is a testament to the reforms and progress we have made together in Alaska. Now is the time to take that spirit of reform to Washington.”

Chances are it’s allowable (it’s Alaska, after all, anything less than a felony is just playing around), but it still seems kind of sketchy. Thoughts?
