Has Anyone Considered Sellin' Alaska Back To The Russians?


Once McCain went on record demanding that convicted felon Ted Stevens step down as Alaska senator, Palin was bound to follow along-- which she did, if reluctantly, yesterday. The Alaska Republican Party, regardless of the urgings of their presidential candidate, vice presidential candidate and titular leader, is painting a different scenario. They're urging conservatives to vote for the felon with the hope of getting him to resign or something after the election.

But there's another possibility. First dude used to be a member of a bizarre fringe secessionist party, The Alaska Independence Party, which also enjoys warm relations with his wife Sarah. They have endorsed third party candidate Charles Baldwin for president (of the Constitution Party) but they are running their own candidate for Senate, Bob Bird, who, like Palin, is an anti-choice fanatic. Take a look:

And, of course, the Alaska Independence Part appealed to their pal, Sarah to help Bird now that Uncle Ted is circling the drain. This letter was sent out late last night:

Open Letter to Governor Palin:

We admire your ability to galvanize the conservative movement in America with such conviction, clarity, and grace. Your message of small government, social conservatism, and reform has endured the attacks of your detractors, re-energized a presidential campaign and, God willing, will soon bring you into the vice presidency.

You have taken a stand against corruption in Alaska, and your demand that Senator Stevens, regrettably now a convicted felon, step down from his position has shown you true to your convictions and that you can be relied upon to reform government at the highest levels.

However, Governor, you have many supporters in Alaska that wonder who you are supporting in the U.S. Senate election. Allow us to suggest a solution.

Bob Bird is the AIP candidate for U.S. Senate. He is a hockey coach and father of three who has introduced thousands of Alaska’s high school students to the truth of our nation’s Constitution in more than 30 years of service as a public educator in Alaska’s schools. He is an avid sportsman, a devout Christian, and former President of Alaska Right to Life. Bob was a lifelong Republican until faced with the same corruption which you recognized and now casts a shadow over our great state. In 1996, he left the party and joined more than 14,000 other Alaskans, including myself in the AIP-- not a radical group as painted by an unjust media, but Alaska’s most respected and established third party, a socially and fiscally conservative party. You remember that in 1990 Wally Hickel, former U.S. Interior Secretary under Ronald Reagan, was elected on the AIP ticket to the same gubernatorial position you now hold.

Senator Stevens’ betrayal of his constituents is unfortunate, but as a conservative coalition we cannot let it result in the election of another liberal democrat to Congress. Bob Bird is a conservative, and he will caucus with Republicans at a time America can’t afford to let Harry Reid get a 60-person majority in the Senate. Bob will join your movement to bring Constitutional conservatism, transparency, and simple Alaskan common sense to Washington.

Please, when asked by the next “gotcha” reporter who thinks they can stump you with a question about who you will support in the race for U.S. Senate in Alaska, simply respond, “Bob Bird, a fellow conservative and Washington outsider who I know will bring honor and integrity back to that seat in the U.S. Senate.”

Good luck, God bless you, and may God bless the America people in this most crucial of times.


Lynette Clark, Chairman
Alaskan Independence Party

And Lynette Clark, Bob Bird and the secessionists aren't the only ones who acknowledge that they need Sarah Palin. No, I'm not talking about the late night comedy hosts. John McCain explains he he needs Palin too:

Palin says she plans to take over the GOP after McCain is defeated Tuesday. McCain staffers are "speechless."
