Robert Stacy McCain beclowns himself in Alaska
According to Alaskan TheMudflats.net guest blogger Linda Kellen Biegel, Robert Stacy McCain flew to Alaska to ostensibly observe ballot counting for the nail-biting Murkowski/Miller Senate race primary. Miller is a Tea Party candidate backed by Sarah Palin.
The Other McCain made a total ass of himself. Notes Biegel,
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 embarrassed and confused. Jeebus, couldn’t he pretend to know something about Alaska?
Why was he there? Clearly he isn’t immersed in Alaskan politics. Biegel continues:
This is only the beginning.
Sarah Palin and Joe Miller will do almost anything to get him elected. If he loses now, Palin’s desired “kingmaker” title will become “Sarah Palin picks right-wing whack-jobs who can’t win general elections.” (If you’ve seen the polls on how Harry Reed is now ahead of Palin pick Sharon Angle, you’ll know that’s a real possibility.)
Because of this, I believe we have yet to see the kind of ugly those folks are going to shoot at the McAdams Campaign.
