As the spotlight follows Sarah Palin out of the Alaska governor's mansion today, a less dazzling, more conventional light shines on new governor Sean Parnell, notes an Anchorage Daily News editorial. "Expect a Parnell administration to be less People magazine, more Governing magazine. Letterman won't be interested. Ditto Politico," the paper declares
Unending ethics complaints are unlikely to beset the former lieutenant governor, who shares Palin's conservative views, but knows how to "fight with someone one day and make common cause the next," the editorial says. "Gov. Sarah Palin does another star turn today, but then it's Gov. Sean Parnell's turn."
