The image at the left might be Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. praying to Rev. Muthee to rid Her iconic Presence of the malicious desecrations of Her Hallowed Image by the misrepresentation of Her love of all things living, unless She wants to kill them.
Meanwhile, those dang, pesky Alaska bloggers are at it again.
We are continuing to ask questions. And we're providing information nobody else has the time, resources or will to reveal.
We've sent a video blogger to the lower Yukon, while the people there are meeting one of their biggest challenges since Europeans gave them venereal disease, smallpox and influenza.
We've raising thousands of dollars to get information into the public domain - information that should be freely available to citizens.
We've raising money and votes to send pesky bloggers to national conferences, so that they know Alaskans can think.
We're doing most of this on our own, with the awesome help of our regular readers. But Thursday, we got help from two political humor web sites.
One of them, Wonkette, is long-established. I've been an occasional reader for years. The other humor site, Conservatives4Palin, is a fairly recent development. Progressive Alaska would link to it on our right-hand sidebar of links, under the humor category, but it isn't an Alaska site. It is a Palin humor site based somewhere else. Some have suggested Buenos Aires, Argentina, but I think "film maker" John Ziegler's john might be more accurate.
Thursday, they probably set a record for people who linked to them from progressive Alaskan sites, as they devoted a lot of space (three articles) to our coverage of Meg Stapleton's most recent nonsense.
Why am I even bringing up this humor site? Because they helped us raise money yesterday, and they deserve a little bit of thanks for that. We'll figure out how to use them to raise more money for our causes, once we get the hang of it. Some might call Thursday a trial run. We need to learn fast, because they have a far shorter shelf life than we do, and our concerns and duties make far more sense than do theirs.
After all - C4P is devoted to Sarah Palin. We are not.
Update - Friday 3:00 p.m:
Shannyn has moved way out front, but you can vote for her anyway.
Dennis has interviewed Alaska rural Affairs advisor, John Moller, in Emonak. Gov. Palin even twittered about it:
"AKGovSarahPalin John also met w/CNN reporter [Dennis Zaki] while in Emmonak & shared welcomed GOOD NEWS of region…as a result, highly unlikely interview will air:)"
We'll see, Sarah...
