Four years is enough
By Charlotte Tanner
July 27, 2006
We have had four years of Frank Murkowski, and what has he done?
He has cut the longevity bonus, purchased himself a private
jet (that masquerades as a prisoner transporter) and tried to
rush the deal of lifetime (for the oil and gas companies) through
the legislature. Meanwhile when questioned during a teleconference
as to where he has lived in Alaska, he completely forgets he
ever lived in Ketchikan.
I am seeing signs around Ketchikan that "experience counts",
well if experience at fleecing the citizens is a qualification
for being Governor, then Frank Murkowski is eminently qualified,
but in my book, I'd rather have someone that can remember what
high school they graduated from, as my Governor.
