  •  Oh that's such good news (6+ / 0-)

    Alaska was used to Senator Stevens bringing home so much pork from Washington, and also getting the oil money.  That's ending.  They really are very isolated, too.  My brother is a Wasilla Republican (sigh).  I'll be seeing him in a few weeks.  It will be interesting to hear what he has to say about the election.  He's very much a 47%, on Social Security and Medicare, gets a very good state pension, enjoying the oil money, but still believes that Alaskans are rugged individuals who are self-reliant.
