    was actually Skeletor's idea.  She's usually pretty level-headed (as Republicans go) and I wouldn't be surprised if she and Begich DO vote the same way a lot (though 80% seems a bit high).  Most likely she's worried about a primary challenge from the right, bein' as there's no love lost between her and the RNC after she knocked out their candidate with a write-in campaign.

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.

      If you look at roll call votes for Obama's judicial nominations that wind up being close votes it seems Collins and Murkowski are frequently the only republicans to vote in favor.

        in ... well, any branch of government really, that's not hog tied to the party line.  A friend of mine from AK, who's certainly no rigid conservative, actually voted for her last cycle because the Dem she was running against was apprently a regular nut diaper (h/t to Jon Stewart for that one).
