Personal Quotes (18)

Piper was named after Todd's airplane, the Piper Cub, which gets us to the hunting grounds. Bristol, Bristol Bay fishing grounds. Willow, a local sport-fishing stream. Trig, I pull the TRIG-ger. Track ... I remember when we told my dad that his grandson was named Track, he said, 'Like TRACKing an elephant?'
I love those hockey moms. You know, they say the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick.
A ship in a harbor is safe, but that is not what a ship is built for.
A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. I'm not one though who would attribute it to being man-made.
Tax dollars go to projects that have little or nothing to do with the public good - things like fruit fly research in Paris, France. I kid you not.
Simply waiting for low-carbon-emitting renewable capacity to be large enough will mean that it will be too late to meet the mitigation goals for reducing carbon dioxide that will be required under most credible climate-change models.
While we recognize the occurrence of these natural, cyclical environmental trends, we can't say with assurance that man's activities cause weather changes. We can say, however, that any potential benefits of proposed emissions reduction policies are far outweighed by their economic costs.
[on President Barack Obama] We need a commander-in-chief, not a professor of law standing, at the lectern!
How's that hopey-changey stuff workin' out for ya?
Lest anyone try to convince you that God should be separated from the state, our founding fathers, they were believers. And George Washington, he saw faith in God as basic to life.

Let me ask you, do you love your freedom that you have here in America? Well, so do I.
[on Senator Rand Paul] His brand of libertarian-leaning conservatism attracts young voters and, recently, he inspired the nation with his Capraesque filibuster demanding basic answers about our use of drones. I sent him some caribou jerky from Alaska to help keep up his strength on the Senate floor.
There is no way I'm not going to love a state when you enter your borders and you look up at your state flag and you see emblazoned on that a mama grizzly.
I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities.
Nobody has promised life was going to be fair. In politics, it really isn't fair. There's scrutiny, double standards and all that. Again, when it affects me personally, I'm dealing with it in a different way that others who want to bring more light to it and demand that Bill Maher apologize or that NOW (National Organization for Women) defend me for something that was said. By the way, I need NOW's defense like a fish needs a bicycle. I don't want them to defend me.
While I was at it, I got rid of a few things in the governor's office that I didn't believe our citizens should have to pay for. That luxury jet was over-the-top. I put it on eBay.
[on Republican legislators who backed down in the debt-crisis debate, 2013] Our army balked. We hoped they were just reloading but instead they just retreated and, worse, they joined the lapdogs in the lame-stream to trash the foot soldiers who fought for America.
