Bob is going to challenge Eddie to move into the Post-Palin world.
Sounds like a good enough idea to me.
Meanwhile, a number of articles are coming out that look at various aspects of the role of Alaska bloggers in getting information out to the world about one particular Alaskan. My favorite so far, is the interview published today by Forbes Magazine, with Alaska's most meteoric and talented liberal independent commentator, Shannyn Moore, who also has a program on KBYR (Saturdays from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.) Here's an excerpt:
You've said that Alaskan politics changed after Gov. Palin returned from running for vice president. How so?
Before Palin began her national campaign, she worked constructively with progressives and Democrats. Right-wing radio commentators called Palin a Socialist for doing that. There were issues that even I supported her on. But this past session, there's such bad blood that they couldn't even pass a law banning bestiality.
You've got to be kidding.
No. There was a sex offender out on parole luring dogs into the woods with hamburger. They could only charge him with a parole violation because bestiality is not illegal in Alaska, and legislators argued over a law that would change this. I called it the Ididadog Bill. That's how gridlocked government became after Sarah came back.
You've said that Gov. Palin has not been well-served by her staff. Can you elaborate?
When Palin gave a press conference at a turkey farm around Thanksgiving, a turkey was gruesomely slaughtered in the background, on camera, as she trailed on. You have to wonder whether she's being well-advised. I know the cameraman who shot that footage. He told me her press secretary and staff were there watching and did nothing. We call it Gobblegate.
