A tour of Sarah Palin’s hometown: Wasilla, Alaska

If you’ve come to Gadling to get away from the Sarah Palin media frenzy, tough luck.

Assuming you’re a sentient being who’s been blessed with eyes or ears, you’ve probably noticed that America’s foxiest governor, Sarah Palin, has been nominated as the Republican candidate for vice president. For the last several days, Palin has been derided as inexperienced by the Democrats, who cite the fact that she was mayor of the small town of Wasilla, Alaska, as recently as 2002.

It was only a matter of time before news outlets infiltrated the 8,500-person town of Wasilla and reported back to the rest of us. Over at Slate, Alex Sheshunoff has compiled a slideshow of the town, complete with photos of all the highlights: the Mexican restaurant, the taxidermist, the city hall, and most importantly, the Target.
