Things Alaska Was Famous For Before McCain Picked Palin

McCain, who's been picking on Obama for lack of experience, just chose a VP who has exactly two years of it. Sarah Palin's most definite stances seem to be pro-life and pro-drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. (Click for more info on her votes)

Is this par for the course for an Alaskan politician? The nation's 48th most populous state also brought us Ted Stevens, whom they still love in spite of the fact that he faces a federal indictment for freeloading like a magazine intern at an Oscars awards gala.

Alaska is also famous for being the state in the US with the highest sex ratio, with 103.2 men for every 100 women, although considering their population I'm not sure what to make of the results. (Also, the song wasn't called "It's Snowing Men.")

Oh, and the salmon are running, but not in a good way.
