In all honesty, Mark is unelectable in 2014, Alaskans think he isn't half a Donny Young and that's what they judge politicals by; they want somebody that shakes the tree for their votes. I'm still glad Mark is forced to vote like a repub outta his complete fear about 2014. Wish I believed he was thought that way inside his head.
Wish Nick Begich would run, now he really is a forward thinker and halfway conservative; but he is too interested in making the bucks, being successful and such; which ain't all that wrong anyway.
I do hope Begich is “unelectable” and is defeated when he runs for reelection next year. I also know that much of the Republican establishment in Alaska has been corrupt (such as the former governor Murkowski & his crew). And standing up to that corruption is one of the reasons (among many) that I admire Sarah Palin so much.
I did not know that Begich was an early promoter of “speed cameras”. That’s another reason to dislike him. Although Alaskans had the good sense to ban them, here in the People’s Republic of Maryland, they are a significant cash cow for the State and municipalities such as Baltimore. Folks here hate them but turn right around and reelect the Democrats who install them.
