State can't afford more political drama

Posted: Tuesday, April 07, 2009

The cry can be heard all around alaska. Incoming! Look up in the sky ... It's a bird ... It's a plane ... It's Randy and Sarah (together again) leading a Republican attack. Uncle Ted was framed! (Oh, a Republican prosecutor brought the case during a Republican administration.) Uncle Ted is innocent! (Oh, there is evidence he broke the law -- anyone remember the tapes, and his scowling testimony?) He would have, should have beaten Mark Begich! (Oh, he requested a speedy trial, a legal, certified race was run and won by a simple majority.) At the risk of questioning the Republicans' understanding of history, I suggest they thank the Democratic AG who admitted the errors made by the Republican prosecutors and chooses not to retry Uncle Ted. I further suggest that they support our legally elected senator, Mark Begich, as he works with Sen. Murkowski and the rest of the Senate to address the many grave situations facing the united states. No more drama ... please. Alaska cannot afford it -- monetarily or otherwise.
