Alaskan accent?

Last night I watched Tina Fey's impression of Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin (video in LJ-CUT). I thought Fey did an awesome job, especially with her imitation of Palin's accent.

I just have to ask, is Palin's accent typical of Alaskans? To me, it sounds like she's from Minnesota or North Dakota, particularly with her pronunciation of /o/ and /r/. Her intonation sounds vaguely Canadian too.
