Only In Sarah Palin's State

5 Nov 2008

Senator Ted Stevens was convicted on seven counts of violating federal ethics laws…and it looks like Alaska still re-elected him yesterday. The words on the tip of my tongue are simply not printable.  If Palin appoints herself to his Senate seat, Alaskans will get what they deserve. (Just realized Alaska is one of the few states where ousted senators are replaced with special elections and not gubernatorial appointments.) If Palin decides to run for the Senate seat to remain in US national politics and the Alaskans vote her in, which they very well could since they had no problem supporting Stevens despite his conviction, they will deserve what they get. The rest of the US, however, will not.

    Between that and Prop8 in California and 2 in Florida and the one in Arizona…

    America has its work cut out for it, and it’s not even half way started.

    I can’t even discuss Prop 8. Didn’t the US founding forefathers mention something about separation of church and state?

    You’d think that’d hold water–but then someone added the “under God” to the pledge of allegiance and out the window it went.
