With friends like Sarah . . .

With weirdness stalking the land, it should have come as no surprise that demi-Gov. Sarah Palin would decide to abandon her former lieutenant governor, now-Gov. Sean Parnell, and endorse the AFL-CIO ticket of Republican-cum-independent-cum-undeclared Bill Walker and dyed-in-the-wool Democrat Bryon Mallott in the governor’s race. She says she trusts them to responsibly develop Alaska’s resources […]

Maybe it is time

We find ourselves aghast yet again after another in a long, painful line of Don Young’s gaffes, this time before  students at Wasilla High School.
