One bit o' political news: it seems our Lt. Governor, Mead Treadwell, is considering a run for Mark Begich's (D-AK) U.S. Senate seat in 2014.
Cue the "Who's Mead Treadwell?" interviews in 3 ... 2 ...
(Begich, you'll recall, won his first term in 2008 by running against the late Ted Stevens, who was convicted on seven counts of lying on Senate ethics forms in late October - just before the election. What a coincidence! Those convictions were later overturned due to prosecutorial misconduct & mishandling on the part of the U.S. Justice Dept., including suppression of evidence which would have been favorable to Sen. Stevens.)

I see where Harry Belafonte (he was a Calypso singer, 50 years ago, and therefore obviously an expert on social relevance) recommends that the President "work like a third world dictator and just put all these guys in jail" while referring to entitlement reformers.
And then, of course, the President would be on the receiving end of a third world revolt. How dumb can one guy get and still breathe?
