Suck. Suck. Blow.
Suck. That Sarah Palin has been sucking, and sucking hard for months now, is a well documented fact. There are many other blogs that dive into the gory details.
Suck. That my state Representative for Spenard is sucking has become more obvious the longer he stays in office.
I voted for Mike Doogan (D) twice. I was a face on a campaign postcard he sent out in 06. I had high hopes for his work in Juneau. Many are the problems in The Hood. They all need fixing.
Right after the 06 elections Doogan was on KSKA’s Community Forum. I phoned in and straight up asked him “What are you going to do for my part of Spenard?”
“Sidewalks.” was his answer. And a good one. Twenty years ago when he was working at the ADN he did a column on me, my knee and the lack of sidewalks.
2009 and there are still no sidewalks in Spenard. And it’s putting people in danger of injury or worse. Less than two weeks ago my manager was grazed by a car on N. Lights and Spenard. He has three kids, and could have been killed.
I can point to no concrete changes that Doogan has bought about in my neighborhood.
No real physical changes at all.
Hey Doogan, “All politics are local.” And I’m not seeing any action.
When “Troopergate” broke into the news a group of Alaskan citizens banded together and formed Alaskans for Truth. This group was part of the organizing force behind the largest political rallies the state has ever seen. They also sent letters to all representative and senators seeking action on a number of ethics violations. Doogan’s response was rude and disrespectful.
So Doogan is not only dumb enough to piss off a bunch of well connected and organized individuals he pissed off CC (Camille Conte) She is the chair of Alaskans for Truth. Was named The Nation magazine’s Most Valuable Local Media Personality 08 and has her own radio call in show on KUDO 1080 AM weekdays 3 to 6pm.
Hello? Doogan you pissed off someone who has their own daily media platform? Who is a constituent of yours, and who is my friend? Got another quote for ya. “The Personal is Political.” And I’m starting to hear that sucking sound.
Now he has outed the perviously anonymous author of the blog Mudflats.
Why? Well that’s a damn good question. It smells – it reeks of revenge.
Mudflats spanked Doogan HARD about his response to Alaskans for Truth, and he didn’t like that.
I see this outing as a violation of this authors civil rights. You do not give up your right to privacy because you are on line. Or of freedom of speech, and the right for that speech to be anonymous.
Fuck you Doogan, you just lost my vote.

Happily, the blog Mudflats is still with us.
As for Blow.
Thereupon Ambika became terrible in her anger, and her countenance darkened until it was black as ink. From her frowning forehead issued the awesome goddess Kali, armed with a sword and a noose. Holding a skull-topped staff, skull-garlanded, wrapped in a tiger-skin, emaciated, wide-mouthed, lolling -tongued, with deep-sunken red eyes, Kali filled the skies with her roar.
