USA Today: Palin's No Theocrat

Despite repeated shrieks from the Left to the contrary, USA Today is reporting that during her time as governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin "governed from the center," "went after big oil," and "rebuffed religious conservatives" on issues like abortion. From the article:
Weeks after taking office as Alaska's governor in December 2006, Sarah Palin vetoed a bill that sought to ban benefits for the same-sex partners of state workers. It was unconstitutional, she said.

This year, she rebuffed religious conservatives who wanted her to add two abortion restriction measures to a special legislative session on oil and gas policy, even though she supported the bills...Palin has taken few steps to advance culturally conservative causes.

Instead, after she knocked off an incumbent amid an influence-peddling scandal linked to the oil industry, Palin pursued a populist agenda that toughened ethics rules and raised taxes on oil and gas companies.
What? A Christian can reasonably isolate her beliefs from her role as a public official? This won't sit well with DailyKos.
