Open Thread – Mudpups for Scannell!

You may have noticed we have a new advertiser over yonder in the sidebar. (applause) Michelle Scannell is running as a Democrat against Republican Mia Costello!

This is great news, and I’ll tell you why.

Mia Costello is one of those “uh oh” candidates who reminds me of those earrings that they sell in the tourist shops. You look at them and think – ooo, what a pretty shiny gold earring that is! And then you read the label and discover that under the micron thin layer of gold electroplate is a gen-yoo-wine Alaska moose nugget. You’ve got to figure that anyone who has “Deputy Communications Director for Governor Frank Murkowski” on their resume, and hasn’t whited it out, is one to avoid like the plague.

But, the good news is that Michelle Scannell can totally win this race against the stealth moose nugget. Costello only won by 800 votes last time. And now, after two years in the House, it’s easy to scratch off that shiny outer layer and reveal what’s inside.

I hope you listen to Michelle’s special Mudpup address, and throw some support her way. Those gilded poop earrings I told you about are about $19.95, and Michelle is worth …. well, WAY more than that. So, give what you can and feel good!

    It’s about time! Finally, even conservatives are writing about how Romney must avoid chosing a VP candidate with the faults of Palin. There are well over 5,000 such stories listed on Google on how a candidate must be ready to serve, unlike Palin…must be knowledgeable, unlike Palin…must be vetted, unlike Palin. Even Fox is jumping on the Palin-bashing board:

    ‘Likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s choice of a running-mate — a search he announced Monday he has begun — will be guided by both his methodical, risk-averse corporate training and the lessons his party learned from Sarah Palin’s selection.

    ‘Preparedness to serve and loyalty to Romney are likely to trump other credentials as the all-but-sure Republican nominee looks to avoid the blowback John McCain faced four years ago with his surprise choice of the little-known, first-term Alaska governor for the GOP ticket. Questions about Palin’s readiness to serve, McCain’s decision-making and his advisers’ vetting came to define the Arizona senator’s flawed campaign.

      Daily Kos? I believe reported Willard had already selected korporate amerika as his veep. That’s a first and worth trillions of greenbacks for Rombushganxon.

    This must be read to be believed. Ann Romney claims Seamus LOVED being crated on the roof of the family car:

  3. mike from iowa says: Chalk one up for Korporate Amerika and a blow against those nasty,godless,evil occupiers. Way to go iowa. I’m proud of you.

    First I have heard of this. South Obrien High School is about 10 miles from here. My youngest graduated from there. Un-freaking-believable!

    She might want to fix the text on the ActBlue page — it says she’s running for “Alaksa [sic] State House.”

      I was watching the space shuttle piggyback it’s way to the Smithsonian and figured that is how Willard’s family dog would fly with him on vacash. Strapped to the top of a 747.

    As we gear up for the next election system (hopefully without diebold), a reminder that a $5 contribution to a candidate in an Alaska legislative race makes a difference. $20 is wonderful, and $100 makes the candidate jump for joy. Of course $500 is welcome too, also.

    So if you can spare a few extra dollars this year, feel free to support those who want to improve Alaska, or where ever you may live.

    John Avlon is often the voice of reason and today’s column about the extreme rhetoric of Congressman West doesn’t disappoint:

    Dick Chenney’s heart must be working, as he is already out blasting President Obama.
    So—-instead of thanking God for an extension of life, he chooses to be his own hateful self.
    Maybe he doesn’t believe in HELL!!!!!!!!

    If you look to the right of Ms Scannell’s left arm,you can see another Ms Scannell in an adjoining room making the same video. Is this the Twilight Zone? I’m freaking out and becoming paranoid.

      it’s OK Mikey….come sit by me.

        Dear Bubbles,I will be most proud to sit beside you at anytime and anywhere for any reason.

    Thanks to the lovely and talented Ms AKM,we now have incontrovertible proof that rwnj are de-evolving back to their Simian roots. Ms gold covered Moose Poop did not “white out” her resume and for a fact,”White Out” was invented by original Monkee’s guitarist,Mike Nesmith’s mother. Is this a coincidence? Hell no! With paper.pencils and enough time,Mudpup Nation could define these cretins out of existence and why don’t we?

      Insert Howard Dean shriek…………………………………………………………………………….here!

        I’m lost. Which Ms Gold Covered Moose Poop are you speaking of? That moniker could be applied to a few people.

    The “pox” is not on both houses and the blame for the gridlock in Congress rests at the feet of the GOP:

    Mia Costello is one of Frank’s old spokesholes. She is nothing more than a greasy rubber-stamp for Randy Ruedrich and a water carrier for ALEC. Go Michelle!
