Bye, bye Frank!!!

Ahhhhhhh, the collective sigh of relief could be heard all over not only Cabin Dweller land but all of Alaska when the election results were tallied – Frank the Bank was sent packing with just 18.87% of the Republican vote. Although undoubtedly there were some spoilers (like yours truly) in that percentage that, as undeclared or independents, chose the Republican ballot so as to cast a sure vote against Frank, the message is loud and clear – You Sucked Frank! Even your own party, especially your own party, Frank, got fed up with your arrogance and stupidity.

Can it be that we are finally free of that dinosaur, after decades in the Senate and a mercifully short four years as the Gov? And hey, it's great to see Jim Clark on the short-timers list too…how the tides of fortune do change. Bye-bye Jim - it's pizza party time!

You beat me to the celebration of Frank's less-than-glorious end. There is some common adage about not kicking a man when he is down, but frankly, that always struck me as ridiculously impractical if you want him to stay down.

Or perhaps I've just been watching too much Deadwood. Al Swearengen has no qualms about kicking someone while they're down...

I dont think one could truly see this man as "down" - he has feathered his nest far too much at our expense, and I am sure we will see him rise up in all his puffery as some over-priced, over-inflated lobbyist...these sorts always land on their feet. I think it takes a stake through the heart to keep 'em in teh casket. Boot, boot, boot (kicking the Murk Monster while he is down)
