Causing a Stir Stateside

Well little old me has caused a little stir when I posted this little bit of research into Sarah Palin's vetoes. Of course a nice little push by Peter Black AM from what is currently the top outgoing link from Lib Dem blogs surely helps. Even so there is sharp spike in my web stats for the last 24 hours.

So I'll indulge myself in a little stat porn which I don't normally do. 70% of my hits overnight where from the USA. By writing my little bit on one attribute of Governor Lipsticked Pitbull's acceptance speech has thus far been read in (not that I've been keeping tabs obviously):

Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. I may have to add Kuwait and Puerto Rico to that list of potential American voters.

That's 22 States of the Union plus DC though not Alaska sadly but I reckon they already know what she's vetoed although I did find some further details of just what that entails. It includes chalkboards, wireless internet access and library book protection projects from schools. A few fire trucks one for the University fire service.

There was also a 50% reduction in a Catholic counselling and adoption service which considering both the Governor and the service, I assume, are pro-life and giving women the support they would need to go full term with what may be an unwanted pregnancy seems a bizarre line veto for her to make.

Update: Add Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island and South Caroline to make it 31 States. Actually I've noticed people are starting to link direct from email addresses so I may be on some email list doing the rounds now. Ooh the excitement. Even more excitement checking on some of the web searches that have surfed my I'm ahead of a story in the Washington Post regarding her line-item veto gulp.
