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…

Open Thread – The Legend of Sleeping Lady

Good morning Mudflatters!  Here’s an open thread to use throughout the day for whatever you like.  It will stay active throughout the day, even when other posts are up.  That way comments on regular posts can stay on topic, and this open thread can serve as a landing pad for all the random thoughts, creative expression, breaking news links, and other things that come up. It may be helpful to leave this post open and just minimize it.  That way it can stay there as an active tab at the bottom of your screen that you can refer to quickly…

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,…

Open Thread – What to Do? A Poll! – UPDATED

There’s always been discussion here at The Mudflats about how to deal with off-topic posts.  It’s a conundrum.  Lots of off-topic posts have excellent commentary, exciting links, and humor.  Nobody wants to give all that up.  But, they can also interrupt the flow of a conversation, and cause some mental whiplash for readers who like to follow a discussion about a topic. We’ve tried a variety of organizational methods seeking the perfect solution, and of course, we have come to the distinct conclusion that there is no perfect answer. (Why is that always the answer??) We’ve had regular open threads, we’ve…

A Party’s a Party, No Matter How Small.

Oh, don’t we love the drive by cleverness of flyinureye?   I always do a little happy dance when my inbox has a special treat from the Mudflats Graphics Department. Apparently the only one who thinks Palin and her magic branding iron can turn this shrinking elephant into something other than….a shrinking elephant, is Rush Limbaugh. Discussing the Republican listening tour conducted by Former Governors Jeb Bush (FL) and Mitt Romney (MA), and House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said yesterday that they are “embarrassed” by Sarah Palin. Alaskan progressives, perhaps, have never actually identified with Jeb…
