ANWR? Reid says ‘never’

As Sen. Mark Begich continues to promise Alaskans that, by golly, he will get the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge open to oil exploration, consider this: His mentor and boss, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, said it will not happen. As reported by Amanda Coyne on her website, Reid bluntly said as much. In a Dec. […]

Begich a fiscal whiz; yeah, right

It is hard not to laugh when you hear former Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich’s contention that he left the city of Anchorage in great financial shape when the Justice Department’s crooked investigation of Sen. Ted Stevens handed him Stevens’ Senate seat. He has an ad out now touting his fiscal prowess as mayor of Anchorage […]

Ask yourself: Am I more likely to be beheaded or infected than six years ago?

Begich, it turns out, has joined others in citing “allegations of prosecutorial […]

Delay, obfuscate, dodge

If you can say anything about American voters, you can say they are not paying attention. Or they are easy to fool. Or they just do not care.
