Yes, like all of you I’ve been scratching my head over McCain’s pick of Alaska governor, creationist beauty queen and friend of the polar bear Sarah Palin for the VP slot. (Okay, she does kind of have that Tina Fey thing going on, but anyone who would vote McCain on that basis deserves a good slap. Even I’m not that shallow.)
But something good has already come of this, in that I’ve discovered the wonderful Mudflats, your blogging guide to the swamp of Alaskan politics, a swamp that evidently rivals our own boglands. A great read it is too, and evidently achieving a deserved new readership. Sir, I salute your indefatigability!
