What the Hell’s Wrong with Alaska Blogging

3:33 AM … Okay, I don’t know what to say. But the Anchorage Daily News is saying Rep. Don Young (R-AK), who wasn’t satisfied with breaking laws but actually violated the constitution, is probably going to get reelected. And it’s looking like his fellow scofflaw and now convicted felon Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) might be on his way to victory too. Now, bear in mind, ensuing imprisonment might force an early departure from the senate. But then who would appoint his replacement? Sarah Palin. Too horrible to contemplate. The polls were not looking good for Stevens. It really seems like a red Palin tide may have brought her fellow abusers of office home. To fully unify this great nation, maybe we need to take the Alaska Independence Party up on their offer.
