With the Justice Department dropping its indictments against Former Senator Stevens, Alaskan republicans, led by Governor Sarah Palin, are demanding for Senator Begich to resign. Huh?

State Republican Party Chairman Randy Ruedrich said Begich should step down to allow for a special election so Alaskans could vote without the "improper influence of the corrupt Department of Justice."

While sane reality based people call this consequences.  

Immediately after word of this time/space continuum breaking solution reached Governor Palin's desk, she responded:

"I absolutely agree."

Really? Let that spin around your brain for a moment before speaking...


Can you elaborate...

In an email to POLITICO, Palin spokeswoman Meg Stapleton confirmed the governor’s position. "She absolutely agrees that there should be a special election," Stapleton wrote. "Stepping down to hold the special election would be the right thing to do."

Time travel.  

Palin's bewildering outside the box thinking at work.  

She now joins McFly, Bill & Ted, Republican presidential candidates who stumble over each other to be Reagan's incarnate.  This is the right thing to do.  2008 was not the Republican Party's year.  Why not go to the past to achieve victory.  A do over.  Heck, lets do best out of 7 until we get the outcome right.  

Can you blame her?  The results are not just to her preferential outcome, regardless of meaningless "facts" and "laws" broken. We have all experienced this before, and we must accept that.  Happens to the best of us.  A home's size suddenly expanded by double in size and people leaving unwanted crap at your house such as furniture, massage chair, and more.

Good luck Palin converting your snow mobile to the Delorean.  

Update Alaskan Senator Murkowski does not believe in science fiction. Booooo

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, did not call on Begich to resign.

"In light of the good news yesterday, I am sure many of us wish we could turn the clock back to last November," Murkowski said. "Unfortunately, that is not an option."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
