New Ivan Moore Poll Shows Sarah Palin With An 81.6 Percent Alaskan Approval Rating, But Mark Begich Only Leads Ted Stevens By 3.3 PointsSomeone pointed the weird headline out to me yesterday, but I only checked it out this morning. If you click on it, you're redirected to a site I've never named at this blog, and have only written about or called about, when a site in Alaska linked to it. Since the Berkowitz campaign has now refused to answer a large, growing number of e-mails and phone calls from PA, I'm not going to beat my head against that wall again.
If you click on the link at Ethan's site, you're redirected to a page that includes, among other creepy stuff, such hyperlinks as:
White Nationalist Sites:
--- Hal Turner Mirror Site
--- White Revolution
--- Mein Kampf (HTML)
--- A White Man Speaks Out (HTML)
--- Panzerfaust Blog
--- Anti-Semite Sam's Blog
--- South Africa Blog (PA notes - not a Black South African site)
--- Alaska Nationalist
We'll see how long Ethan's idiots keep this link up at his site.
Sucking up to Sarah's base, or incompetence? I do hope it is the latter, even though that isn't very reassuring.
Don't even get me started on the DCCC AM Radio ads that may be among the worst in recent Alaska history.
Update - 11:45 a.m. Monday: David Shurtleff, Ethan's communications chief, called me this morning, about the link to the racist hate site. He explained that - I'm paraphrasing - I shouldn't expect Ethan's web person to be as knowledgeable as I am about the internet. I was driving through heavy traffic in Eagle River at the time, so I had to tell him "Talk to you later, David," to keep from driving off the road, LOL...
The campaign page has removed the link. When you now click on it, you get:
Ethan's campaign people, or the candidate himself, need(s) to sit down with John Devins, and have it explained how nasty Don is going to get in the fight of his life. Commenters at this post who are enabling or defending these kids playing with Ethan's site, need to WTFU - wake the fuck up!
