Behold the Latest GOP Offering for Lt. Governor of Alaska -- Eddie Burke

The rest of the states subsidize Socialist Alaska to the tune of $8,000 per capita. It's time we cut them off of the welfare rolls.

Yes, this is the same Eddie Burke that called the women who organized the "Alaska Women Reject Sarah Palin" rally "a bunch of socialist baby-killing maggots" on the air, and then gave out their home phone numbers. This is the same Eddie Burke that showed up at the Anchorage Assembly to give public testimony opposing Ordinance 64 which would have added the words "sexual orientation" to the city's non-discrimination policy, looking like this: LinkHere

Obama vs. McCain:Who's The Maverick Now?

Throughout the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican nominee John McCain called himself a political maverick with "the record and the scars" to prove it, in contrast to a rival he portrayed as a spineless party man who never challenged Democratic leaders or interest groups. At this point, as President Obama launches a new era of offshore oil and gas drilling, the two men have largely reversed roles.McCain, facing competition from the right in the Arizona GOP Senate primary, has abandoned his past as a champion of comprehensive immigration reform and climate change legislation. He has turned against the TARP bank bailout (which he supported when he was a presidential candidate). And he went along with his party in saying no to the Democrats' economic stimulus and health reform bills.
Obama, on the other hand, seems to be annoying an increasingly broad swath of his party base:- Liberals were adamantly against his "surge" of troops and money in Afghanistan. They don't like that Guantánamo Bay prison is still open or that many of George W. Bush's anti-terror tactics are still in use. They were deeply unhappy that Obama did not seem to care much about their beloved "public option" -- a government-run insurance plan that didn't make it into the final health reform law. LinkHere

Rep. Steve Cohen: Sarah Palin Made John McCain Look Like "A Captured Soldier in North Vietnam"

Certainly we don't see much of that maverick John McCain who was brave enough to be bipartisan anymore. There is definitely something to Rep. Cohen's observation that the roles have reversed since the presidential campaign.
