In South Florida's very midst lives a transplant who hails from the celebrated town of Wasilla, Alaska. A second-year medical student at Nova Southeastern University, his name is Harry A. Schultz IV, but he goes by "Buck." (Judging by the Palin clan, they're very big on colorful, one-syllable names up in moose territory.) Buck was kind enough to tell us everything we ever wanted to know about Wasilla:
You know, most Alaskans like Palin because she's like "Alaska First." I think most people don't want her to vacate her governor role. I'm actually non-party-affiliated. I was a hardcore Republican — like, a Shiite Republican — when I left Wasilla. But since I've been in Florida for five years, they [his Alaska homeboys] would think of me as a laid-back hippie liberal by comparison. I'm not partisan. I'm probably going to write in Nader.
