Keeping Up With the Johnstons

Sherry Johnston, according to her lawyer Rex Butler, has agreed to plead guilty to a felony drug charge of  “possession with intent to deliver.”  She will submit her guilty plea on July 31, and in exchange, the state has agreed to dismiss five other drug charges against her. She arrived at the courthouse (above) with her daughter Mercede, Tank Jones, and the almost-son-in-law of the governor, Levi.   (whispering to Sherry and Levi) I think that Mercede and Tank need to be consulted on appropriate wardrobe choices from now on….just sayin’. Johnston’s arrest involved the drug oxy-contin, a narcotic painkiller for…

Dan Sullivan Embraces Socialism?!

Thom Hartmann is in town! He’s the guest of honor at a dinner tonight in Anchorage, and is broadcasting live from KUDO 1080am this morning. I just listened to him in the car on the way to work. He spoke with both Acting Mayor Matt Claman, and Mayor Elect Dan Sullivan. The latter was an interesting exchange. Hartmann asked how Sullivan thought Sarah Palin was doing. Sullivan said she had become “distracted” by the VP nomination, and that “If I had to give her a grade, I wouldn’t give her one.” Then he said he was glad she was back…

Snidely Whiplash Does the Happy Dance!

(Imagine a hilariously funny graphic that sadly doesn’t exist, of Snidely Whiplash doing a happy dance here) This just in…. Ethics complaint #12 (that we know of) against Sarah Palin which alleged that SarahPAC, the governor’s political action committee was itself a violation of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act was dismissed today. The .pdf of the Personnel Board’s decision, via Independent Counsel Tom Daniel is HERE ethicscomplaintdismissal The board stated that there was no basis to conclude that the Governor used her office to create the PAC. So, this ethics complaint that was filed on April 22 has been…

Palin Cancels Friday Night Date With Dog Barbecueing Jew Counter.

You know….sometimes when I type headlines, I really really wish they weren’t true.  I cannot emphasize enough how much that is the case in this instance.  No matter how much I bang my head on the desk, this guy just won’t go away.  First let me start with a disclaimer. Perhaps I should have said “former dog barbecueing  jew counter” because those things happened a long time ago.  So, you know… if you’re inclined, you can just move beyond that fact and let bygones be bygones.  Hey, we all did crazy stuff in our youth.  I’m sure there are many former dog…

Missiles Good. Energy Efficiency Bad.

Budget cuts.  That’s where the rubber meets the road for fiscal conservatives.  Sarah Palin’s been talking a big game about fiscal conservatism.  Alaskans adored Ted Stevens and Don Young  and re-elected them for term after term after term (etc.) because they could bring home the pork, baby.  Don Young’s well-attended annual fundraiser is actually a pig roast.  On purpose.  And Alaskan pork isn’t all horrible and unfair.  We have challenges in transportation, scattered rural populations, and building infrastructure that other states cannot even fathom.  And we give a lot back to the nation in terms of mineral resources, awesome fish, and a…

GOP Deathwatch with Joe the Reaper.

In further evidence of how close the ravaged body of the GOP is to taking in its last rattling death gasp….the party is no longer good enough even for (wait for it) Joe the Plumber.  That’s right, Joe (not his name) the Plumber (not licensed) is now also, no longer a Republican.  Joe feels that the Republican party is spending too much money.  We may wish to ask ourselves where Joe the Plumber has for the past eight years?  Remember when Joe told a room full of devoted Republicans “All this love and everything in the room – I’m horny.” …

Alaska Disastas – A Thursday Triple Roundup

We’re staring at the end of the week, and up here in the North land, it’s just one disaster after another. They seem to come in all shapes and sizes, so let’s just roll up our sleeves and dig in. Flood The early spring, and warm temperatures have not come without a price.  Rapid melt on the Yukon River has caused a “breakup” like none in recorded history.  Huge, house-sized chunks of ice have ridden the rising floodwaters and  demolished the old village of Eagle.  The governor has made a disaster declaration which includes the drainages of the Yukon, Kuskokwim,…
