Via the LA Times, Alaskans are getting pissed off that inquiries to their own governor’s office are getting rerouted to the Arlington, Virginia McSame-Palin campaign office.

So, the Alaska government has now been taken over by the. . . McCain campaign?

Maybe Alaskans should be calling Todd Palin, who seems to claim higher authority than the state government, having refused to honor a bipartisan subpoena in Alaska regarding his role in the Troopergate abuse of power scandal.



Pachacutec did not, as is commonly believed, die in 1471. To escape the tragic sight of his successors screwing up the Inca Empire he’d built, he fled east into the Amazon rain forest, where he began chewing lots of funky roots to get higher than Hunter Thompson ever dared. Oddly, these roots gave him not only a killer buzz, but also prolonged his life beyond what any other mortal has known, excluding Novakula. Whatever his doubts of the utility of living long enough to see old friends pop up in museums as mummies, or witness the bizarrely compelling spectacle of Katherine Harris, he’s learned a thing or two along the way. For one thing, he’s learned the importance of not letting morons run a country, having watched the Inca Empire suffer many civil wars requiring the eventual ruler to gain support from the priests and the national military. He now works during fleeting sober moments to build a vibrant progressive movement sufficiently strong and sustainable to drive a pointed stake through the heart of American “conservatism” forever. He enjoys a gay marriage, classic jazz and roots for the New York Mets.
