Palin opponent: Governor is MIA

Sarah Palin's first announced Democratic opponent for the governor's race in 2010, Bob Poe, is starting with what's sure to be his meme:

"It's a really big deal to most Alaskans how our economy moves forward and the role state government has in that. I'm concerned that right now, there's not much attention to running state government, there's a lot of attention to running for something else."

In its initial analysis of the race, Daily Kos isn't hopeful or, as it turns out, reading the internet these days.

The chances of beating Palin are very low, but it will be nice to have her in the media spotlight again in 2010.

Yeah, because no one's talking about her in 2009.
