Why I went silent, an Alaskan post mortem ..kinda
My last diary on RedState was titled “Why I Support Joe Miller.” Soon after that I went silent. One of the rules here is that we don’t support a non Republican candidate, nor do we deprecate one of our candidates once they’ve been selected in the primary. I reached a point where I could not support Miller any further, so I thought the right thing | Read More »
Why I support Joe Miller
This is something I posted in the comments section of adn.com (The website for the Anchorage Daily News). I’ve been mulling things over a bit in the last 24 hours. I have to admit the latest bomb (using boro computers to get rid of Ruedrich) really bothers me, but at the end of the day changes nothing. I’m posting this to, share what may be | Read More »
You folks are the greatest!
This probably shouldn’t be a diary, but I’m not sure how else to do this. I’ve been out of the country for a few weeks and haven’t posted much in a while. I just wanted to say how exciting it has been to see the great work that the activist community and the grassroots have been doing fighting the government takeover of Health Care. I’m | Read More »
Sarah Palin – real governor and fantasy creation.
Even after 11 months of discussion, debate, and becoming the human representation of TMI folks still don’t understand the disconnect between a national almost cultlike figure named Sarah Palin, and who and what she is as the governor of Alaska. I’m not a political insider, just someone who the Chosen One pushed towards activism. The issues on my end are policy and executive competence. I’m not | Read More »
The latest on the potential Alaska natural gas pipeline
Josh Painter posted earlier about todays announcement of the agreement between TransCanada and Exxon to do pipeline preparation together. I thought I would pass on an email to his constituents from Les Gara, the State House rep. from my district. He is a Leftie Dem, (and a pretty strange guy), but his analysis on this issue makes sense to me. ———————————————————- Dear Neighbors, Today Exxon | Read More »
A Horrible Terrible no good very bad day for the Heath Palin clan
this was not exactly a sparkling day for the Palin-Heath clan. 1) Todd’s half sister was arrested for 2 burglaries apparently with her 4 y/o daughter in tow. 2) The Legislature has rejected her rejection of their rejection of Tim Grussendorf to take the place of Kim Elton. Senate Pres. Gary Stevens (R-Kodiak) is supporting a lawsuit. 3) Levi Johnston gave an interview to Tyra | Read More »
My impression of the Alaska Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner
I had posted this as a reply in another thread, but I think it was a… dead thread. There was a big crowd. The introductions were done by alternating Lt. Governors, Lehman, and Parnell. Lehman wore the Lincoln Hat and gave the “Gettysburg Address intro” of Gov. He shouldn’t give up his day job. Both Don Young’s and Lisa Murkowski’s speeches were pre recorded, I | Read More »
Justice for Ted Stevens
“I know Senator Stevens was not liked by many at RedState, but this is still a real sore spot up here, for good reason. The headlines are gone, and MSNBC no longer cares. But that’s all the more reason to take note of the strange and disturbing turn in the Ted Stevens legal saga. Prosecutors claimed this senior Senatorial scalp last year, winning an ethics | Read More »
