Mark Begich is the Democrat Senator from Alaska because the Democrats smeared the good name and reputation of Ted Stevens, the Republican who held the seat until 2008.
Stevens was savaged by the Democrat controlled media and criminally charged with being corrupt. Although he was pretty much cleared before the election, the people of Alaska decided “better safe than sorry.” In Begich they got worse not better and plenty to be sorry about.
Begich delivered not for Alaskans but for Barack Obama and Harry Reid when he joined in the sneaky Christmas Eve passage of a bill the Senate Democrats made believe was the bill on Obamacare that was sent to them. That was a lie, but like all Democrats they lied to ram through socialized medical care merely because they could and our Marxist President ordered them to.
Now, four years later with exactly one passed bill under his belt – yes, you guessed it, a Post Office renaming–Begich is facing the consequences of his ineptitude. As one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats, Begich is grasping at any campaign theme he thinks will end his political-approval free fall by fooling 50% plus one Alaskans.
Just as other Democrats invent imaginary friends who tell them to raise everybody’s taxes to make us all rich, Begich has invented imaginary conversations with Obama in which the president has been a “pain in his ass.”
Putting aside that Democrats are against all energy projects except fake green ones, the White House, which wouldn’t know the truth if it bit its occupants in the ass, backs up the Begich fairy tale about acting on various oil projects because the senator pushed them to act. This reminds us that Begich is friends with Santa Clause, who he is proud to point out, is one of his supporters. Yes the man legally changed his name to Santa Clause.
Yet, it gets better. With nothing else but the Post Office rename to point to, Begich is running spots reminding voters that he will be running against a Republican from “the Outside” which is what Alaskans call the rest of U.S.
His website shows he really doesn’t stand for anything apart from his re-election, fighting against the War on Women the Democrats insist Republicans are waging and Oh Yes, he doesn’t like the Koch Brothers.
Begich can still win. He is after all a member of Uniparty and Uniparty can always savage the Republican nominee who at this point looks like Dan Sullivan, Alaska’s Attorney General. The primary isn’t until August 19th. If Sullivan, who is a strong conservative, should win, the Uniparty will probably try to savage him. Let’s hope Alaskans choose wisely this time around.
