State of the State: A Quick Thought January 20, 2010

Just got done watching Gov. Parnell’s first State of the State. I’ll go into what he said in more depth later, but for now, just a note on the overall impression he made on me:

It’s surprising how different it feels to have our Governor give a speech where all of the statements make sense and the ideas flow logically from one to the next. Where the national media doesn’t deconstruct every statement, and where it’s clear there’s no major hidden agenda relating to his career. In short, a cogent speech, the focus of which is Alaska and not the speaker.

Even if I’m not always with him 100% on policy, I had forgotten how nice it feels to have a full-time Governor.
