Hotshot Palin puts igloo issue on ice

With moose and bear shooting high on pro-life US Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s priority list it’s not surprising that the Bush administration is trying to fix the US housing market with its nationalisation of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae ahead of the presidential elections in November.

As Barack Obama’s running mate Jo Biden has pointed out, housing ain’t in this gal’s sights.

Speaking shortly after Palin’s speech to the Republican faithful last month, Biden said he had been impressed by what she didn’t say.

He said: ” I didn’t hear a word about the housing crisis or college education – all the things the middle class is being burdened with now.”

Could it be that Alaska’s foremost politician believes that the igloo issue should be left on ice?
