"The Alaska Republican Party…believes that current Senator Mark Begich should resign his position to allow for a new, special election, so Alaskans may have the chance to vote for a senator without the improper influence of the corrupt Department of Justice," the Alaska Republican Party's Web site states.
Stevens lost his bid for a seventh Senate term against Begich in November following a conviction of seven counts of lying on Senate ethics reforms.
The Alaska GOP mantains a special election "will allow Alaskans to have a real, non-biased, credible process where the most qualified person could win, without the manipulation of the Department of Justice."
Super. While we’re at it, I’d like a do-over of the 2000 election, please. I kinda missed that real, unbiased, credible process where the most qualified person could win, without the manipulation of Karl Rove. And I’m sure John McCain would like a do-over of the 2000 South Carolina Primary for the same reason.
Let's ask California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger what he thinks about this idea, too. Since, you know, it has become apparent that the power outages that sank Gov. Gray Davis' time in office were completely manufactured.
Meanwhile, I love Balloon Juice:
Gary Condit called. He said to SUCK. ON. THIS.Ow!!!!!! That smackdown HURT!
Any other election do-overs you'd like to suggest?
