But way up in the Great Frozen State of Alaska, they have their own brand of Marxist-Leninist redistribution of wealth. But as Fox News (!) is reporting, some call Alaska "America's socialist state" because it routinely sends state oil revenue checks to its residents.

Palin has—in touting her state's policies—used language similar to the "spread the wealth" comment made by Obama that has since drawn fire from Republicans.
"We share in the wealth when the development of these resources occurs," she was quoted as saying in a recent New Yorker article.
