RSM Shows Up in AK to Cover Tea Party Candidate, Humiliates Self Again
Mudflats coverage of AK featuriing everyone’s favourite Neo-Confederate bigot. Read the whole coverage, but here’s an entertaining aside about Robert Stacy McCain:
Slime bag Robert Stacy McCain of the nasty right wing bog “The Other McCain” flew up on his own money (uh huh…I believe that…) because he heard “It might be interesting. He identified himself as being with “The American Spectator” but I suspect he was there to further the “tainted ballot process” meme for the Palinistas and Milleristas.
(Note: When I mentioned to him that there really wasn’t much to see and I’d been there for days during the Begich/Stevens recount, he asked “So what are they going to do about Stevens? Will there be an appointment or a special election?”
Zoinks!!! What is he talking about?
I responded, “You mean the Senate seat Mark Begich won against Stevens in 2008?
He looked very confused.
I repeated, “Mark Begich has that Senate seat now. Ted Stevens hadn’t been a Senator upon his death for two years.”
Now he looked really embarassed and confused. Jeebus, couldn’t he pretend to know something about Alaska?)
h/t Stanley Sea (smooch!)
BTW, as pointed out there, the ugliness of the GOP primary there just clues us in to what a Dem candidate will be able to expect from Miller.
