April Fool's Day is Over With, People! Move On Already!

Local radio personality (and Rush Limbaugh wannabee) Dan Fagan wrote an April Fool's Day web column suggesting that formerly convicted, former U.S. Senator Ted Stevens run for Alaska Governor in 2010.

Now, according to a number of people, this whimsical idea has taken on a life of its own.
At least with Alaska's zany Congressman Don Young.
Said the ever-colorful Mr. Young:
"Personally I'd like to see him run for governor, and that's my personal feeling," Young said yesterday. "So, we'll see what happens down the line. He probably won't, but I think that would be a great way to cap off a great career as being the governor of the state of Alaska."
Now, I understand that this was Fagan's idea of a funny ha-ha. And, I'm sharp enough to realize that even though Don Young isn't the brightest porch light on the block, he's probably just having fun tweaking Governor Sarah Palin's nose a little.

You see, Light Gov. Sean Parnell, with Sarah's blessing and glowing endorsement, coupled with Don's own ethics problems (the other shoe hasn't dropped on that issue yet), damn near beat Don in the primary election last time around. Young only won by 304 votes out of over 100,000 cast.

So, that wound, while not fresh, probably still hasn't scabbed over completely.
But Dan and Don, and everyone else out there picking this thing up and running with it - enough is enough.


It isn't funny anymore.

If you clowns keep it up, the old fart may just actually run.

Doesn't Alaska have enough problems already?
