Blame Alaska

Its senior senator faces multiple felony convictions, and its governor is, depending on whom you ask, a cancer who is killing her party or a rogue-operative diva who cares more about the next election than the next-week election. Looking back, its signature pop-culture signpost, Northern Exposure, actually kind of sucked.

 

Can we go ahead and give away to Russia all that thin Alaskan air into which Putin, like a Marxist Macy's parade balloon, so often rears his head?

 

Last night on Larry King Live, Janine Turner, who played fictional frontierswoman Maggie O’Connell on the long-running, award-winning television program, vigorously threw her support behind fictional frontierswoman Sarah Palin. “She is a smart, intelligent woman,” Turner said, oddly employing a bit of Palinology to drive home the point. “She's the governor of Alaska, which — the state of Alaska has the fifth highest ranking, they have the most power of the top five states in Alaska. She's had executive power. She's a smart, intelligent woman.”

 

I don’t believe you, TV Alaskan, no more than I believed TV Superman Dean Cain when he tried to tell me and Larry that John McCain was a steadfast regulator who “saw Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac coming.” As a commenter on one Cain fan site said, “It must be the red Kryptonite.”
