Mudflats: Best Alaska Politics Site on The InterTubes

This is a shoutout to Mudflats (Not that she needs one. Girlfriend is burning up the InterTubes), best site ever for all things Palin, Stevens, Monegan, et al.

I am probably one of the few mainlanders who was actually interested in Alaska politics prior to the Palin pick, mostly because of years of wondering what the heck was up with Ted Stevens.  A few tantrums on the Senate floor and some embarrassingly out-of-touch comments on modern technology (he apparently thinks the Internet is a series of “tubes,” much like an international drive-in banking system where you type your thoughts into the screen and pneumatic tube shoots it off to the intended recipient who promptly sends it back and asks you to please sign the withdrawal slip) and I thought “who in their right mind would elect this guy?”  I have actually warmed up to him quite a bit, however.  Not the corruption and embezzlement parts, of course, but any guy in the eighth decade of his life who would go on a two day hike with his buddy carrying only a couple bottles of wine really can’t be all that bad.
