Elections officials, party leaders and voters are wondering what happened this Tuesday in the Last Frontier, where turnout was surprisingly low and two lawmakers who have been the focus of FBI corruption investigations appear to have been reelected despite polling suggesting they would be ousted. .

Thank you Shasta. It is nice to live in one of the last republican strongholds where we don't allow 12 jurors from DC to decide who our senator should be.
The funny thing about Sarah Palin is that the hardcore republicans have hated how she has governed. Her 3 major bills passed here were opposed primiarily by her party: the ethics act, AGIA, the gas pipeline act which gave the rights to a Canadian company, and the huge increase in taxes to the oil companies. She then refused to have the legislature vote on banning abortions for minors in her legislative special session. She had more democratic support in Juneau than republican.
She changed her tune completely when nominated for VP as directed by McCain. She may be a much more viable candidate in the future when she is allowed to be herself.
I look forward to seeing what happens with her.

With the exception of her redneck buddies and the NRA, I don't think Palin will have much support anymore.
I know the country sees her as the "fool" of the year.

Sources close to the Ohio Corrupt Practices Act/RICO claim sent us a copy of the following letter that asks Attorney General Mukasey for protection for Michael Connell and his family who have been allegedly threatened by Karl Rove. Rove is believed to be the strategic mastermind behind the Bush 2004 re-election campaign and the possible Ohio election improprieties. The alleged threats appear to be the result of the re-opening, through the Ohio Corrupt Practices Act/RICO claim, of the stalled investigation into the 2004 Ohio Elections.

Filling out forms incorrectly, NOT. He was convicted of not reporting the 250,000 in GIFTS he received. He filled out NO forms incorrectly, he did NOT fill out the forms, hint :that is why he is in trouble. I'm sure he knew the proper thing to do with all of those years he has been in public office.After reading about all of the Pork he delivers, while burdening the US taxpayer, you people are nuts to reelect him.
