We're aiming for zero, Paul/Sarah/Blood-dancer Campaign, so there! Maybe we can do better next time around.

Speaking of lame, the guy who was governor before Sarah Palin (the most unpopular governor in the U.S. at the time, as I recall) says he doesn't hold any grudges against Sarah for "pushing him out of public office."
Gee, that's big of him - but I thought the voters were responsible for that little chore.
However, he's right on one thing:
In a wide-ranging telephone interview with The Associated Press, one of Murkowski's first since Palin drubbed him in the August 2006 Republican gubernatorial primary, he also said environmentalists have effectively shut down resource development in Alaska and that the state must respond or its future will be grim.Absolutely. As a commenter noted on an earlier post, the enviro-weenies would prefer that we all leave, so that Alaska can remain unspoiled. Fortunately, they're not in charge. Most of them are based out of D.C., which is even more reason to ignore their hapless bleating.
So let me get this right: they don't live here. They don't contribute to the local economy, nor have real jobs. They don't give anything to Alaska, but want to take everything away from us, kick us out, AND tell us what to do & how to live.
They're not even useful idiots.

On another topic, it's 34 and rainy this morning. Yuck - it doesn't feel much like February; more like early April. But AccuHunch guesses we'll have sun this weekend, and the weather gurus seem to think it will turn cold again by next week (I think I said that yesterday - sorry).
I'd better stop here, before my blood pressure goes any higher. Thanks for stopping by.
*If you don't want to go to the link, our two points come from the fact that AK doesn't force college campuses to allow concealed carry. A group of students has been campaigning to get the University of Alaska to permit on-campus carry, but I don't know if they've gained any traction.
