The Distorted View
Thank you, Governor, but actually, we didn't ridicule Alaskans -- most of whom were ashamed of their legislators' harebrained schemes to fleece American taxpayers of $450 million, (during wartime, no less) -- just the elected officials who thought they could get away with it. Now, in order to polish what he claims is an unfairly tarnished image, Murkowski is urging lawmakers to fund an ambitious two-year public relations campaign to cast his state in a better light.
"The nation's views of Alaska are sorely distorted," Murkowski groused.
Huh, Governor, wonder how come?
