Fear Ruled the Day

and Sen. Murkowski apparently won re-election based on a write-in campaign which consisted primarily of smearing the Republican nominee ("He's too extreme for Alaska"). Granted, those ballots will have to be hand-tallied, but it's unlikely that 13,000+ folks wrote in some other name.

It seems that enough nanny-staters from the Left Coast have moved here to sway the elections in favor of the Rino/Statist.

The worst part is that we won't get the initial results of the write-in tally until the 18th. Update: the State will begin counting the write-in votes next week, so as to make results known even sooner. That's a good thing.

In other results, the loser in the gubernatorial race was asked for his thoughts, last night: "I was amazed at how many people selected the wrong candidate." Unfortunately, he wasn't kidding.

"Everybody's out of step but Johnny." Yeah, right. Way to keep it classy, Mr. B.

Yesterday's snow will probably melt in today's predicted rains, but then the temps are to drop again. It always seems to snow right before we go on vacation.

Consider that a hint.
