    She has nominated Wayne Anthony Ross, whose vanity plates on his hummer read W.A.R.
    He is a homophobic, misogynistic, racist clown. He stands by his referring to gays as immoral, perverted degenerates in an open letter to the bar association. In a hearing Friday he compared his hating of gays to his hating of lima beans. The committee chair, Jay Ramras of Fairbanks, smirkingly made it plain he hated lima beans too.
    In testimony Friday afternoon, Leah Burton quoted him as saying' there wouldn't be an issue with domestic violence if women would learn to keeep their mouths shut'
    He obviously considers Sarah to be a babe, when asked his opinion of the propriaty of her wearing a snowmachining suit at the start of the largest race with a large Arctic Cat logo and and her name, providing advertising for them while representing us as gov, he called it 'provocative' with an obvious double entendre.

    The largest Native Alaskan organizations have voted to recommend against confirmation. The Alaskan Federation of Natives, and the Alaska Native Brotherhood/sisterhood. He is opposed to native rights, particularly the rural preference for subsistence hunting.

    Stacy has two pieces on W.A.R. in her blog, scroll down.

    The Mudflats

    There are also two pieces on W.A.R. here, the current one, on lima beans and leather, after the confirmation hearings, and an earlier one, scroll back to 10/04/09

    This blog has been nationaly recognised as the best political blog in the state.

    It would be great if this were taken up by the national media, there might be a chance of the legislature not confirming him.

    Attorney General of the state, thanks, Bbucko. (duh for me)

    There is a move to amend the constitution to have the AG elected, this clown will probably give it some impetus.

    Thanks for the link to the Mudflats blog. It is very well written and worth the time and trouble to read. Who knew?

    She is an excellent writer. Mudflats has been picked up a couple of times by Huffington, Bent alaska once.

    Her piece on the Mayoral Election Central last Wednesday is a very good one, I was just a few feet away from where she took some of the pics, I was with Sheila Selkregg, who came in 3rd.

    There is an earlier piece about a Dan Sullivan (Sarah's favorite Anchorage Mayoral candidate) fundraiser that is hilarious.

    The Alaska State Senate Judiciary Committee continued confirmation hearings on W.A.R. this afternoon, it was the Senators questioning him, public testimony was not taken. They gave him another opportunity to disavow his statements about gays being degenerates, he stuck with them again.

    There is an audio archive at the site of the Juneau PBS station:
    http://www.ktoo.org/gavel

    Recent audio streams, senate Judiciary Committee, 4/13/09, 1:30pm.

    They get into it close to the beginning. Senators Hollis French, the chair, and Bill Wielechowski are friends.

    She has this uncanny ability to constantly swing at a ball and miss... Never knew that failing could be so monstrous! :biggrin1:

    The State House and Senate will be holding a joint session at 11:00 am Alaska time, (@ an hour from now) to vote on the confirmation of W.A.R. as AG for Alaska. It will be archived, if folks want to listen to it later.

    It can be heard streaming from the Juneau PBS station:
    KTOO: Gavel to Gavel Alaska

    Yesterday, after a request sent in last Sunday, the Executive Assistant of the Anchorage Bar Association sent me a PDF of the page in the 1993 May/June issue of their publication Bar Rag, which had W.A.R.'s letter, with some context, and a response. He implied that the organization Lawyers Against Discrimination, L.A.D., were paedophiles, he did refer to gays as immoral, perverted and degenerate.

    It has been forwarded to all the legislators, by our allies and friends in Juneau. It has also been forwarded to progressive Alaskan bloggers, and the ADN.

    The text has been posted by a friend at her blog:
    Henkimaa

    She is an excellent writer.

    There is also more posted at the blogs I previously mentioned,

    Http://www.bentalaska.com,

    and

    http://www.themudflats.net

    The Mudflats has a good piece on the Teabagging here yesterday as well. There are always very entertaining pieces on Sarah's latest flakinesses there, it is probably the best for that.

    It went a lot better than I had hoped, I thought there would be a narrow win in the Senate, and a tossup in the house. Two thirds in both houses. Where can we get lima bean champagne?

    Still would love to see that dude Maddow get it on with Palin, while Napolitano and Coulter watch and wank each other's schlongs off.

    Just sayin'.

    The post-50 Napolitano has never married. It is an avid basketball fan and regularly plays tennis.] Whitewater rafting and hiking are some of Napolitano's hobbies. It has hiked in Arizona's Superstition mountains and New Mexico's Sandia mountains and has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and the Himalayas.

    Hmmm.
