8.2 AKMuckraker Tiptoes through the Muck of Alaskan Politics at themudflats.net

Sometimes a writer and a historical moment collide in a fateful and wonderful way.

AKMuckraker slings the truth about Alaskan politics at themuflats.net

Here's mud in your eye, Governor: AKMuckraker slings the truth about Alaskan politics at themuflats.net

That was the case this year with AKMuckraker and themudflats.net; a clever and very well-written blog about Alaskan politics that suddenly exploded onto the international blogosphere scene when an obscure Republican governor was picked as John McCain’s Vice Presidential running mate.  (Mudflats are a very clever geological metaphor for the political situation in our nation’s largest state–read about them here.)

Yes, AKMuckraker gives us the Sarah Palin show, up close.  It’s very well worth a read–if only to discover the fate of Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston’s grandma.  I mean, of course, the one that isn’t the meth addict/dealer.  (Although she could have her fair share of appearances, too.)
