Pathetic. That’s the only word I can think of to describe the fact that Talis “I’m a Doofus” Colberg was elected mayor of the Mat-Su Borough with just over 7% of the population turning out to vote. Well, I guess you get what you put into it. Good luck, Mat-Su.

Even Better News

Just a few tidbits of good news to share with everyone:

Norm Coleman Ordered To Pay Al Franken $95K By Minnesota Court

Miss California Losing Crown After All

John Ziegler, Palin’s personal filmmaker and shameless self-promoter, gets a smackdown

Gingrich looks even more ridiculous by accusing nominee Sotomayor of pretending to break her ankle

The good news is, according to Gallup, less than 0.5% of Republicans feel that Sarah Palin speaks for them.

Palin is frequently quoted in the media attacking Obama, or doing something that resembles attacking Obama, at any rate. But no one associates her with leadership qualities or sees her as speaking for the party.

Anyone else feeling relieved?

The bad news is, that the top three people who Republicans feel do represent them are Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich and Dick Cheney.


Actually, now that I think about it, this may be good news after all. I mean, come on. If these guys are the bright, shining stars of the GOP, I don’t think Democrats have anything to worry about.
