Bush, Cheney, Torture Protests Continue in Red Alaska

For those of you who think of Alaska as a Red State, full of Bush supporters and Libertarians who must surely send their government welfare checks back to the state each year, you will be pleased as Punch and Judy to know that last week in Juneau, the capital city accessible only by plane or by sea, the protesters against Bush, Cheney and the torturers in our government were out in full force.

You are now allowed to put a blue high achievement star for Alaska on your map of the United States that you keep in your vest pocket underneath your lapel pin. And thanks to Libby of Juneau for helping those of us who are having a little trouble getting around these days to see the sights of Juneau.

From the LA Times:

Alaska receives more federal dollars per capita than any other state. We rely on Stevens money (a wag said our currency should be the “Ted”) to keep the economy humming, to keep our taxes low. We’re certainly not going to pay for “little projects” out of our own pockets as long as we have Ted Stevens shoveling federal dollars at us.
