The Alaskan Independence Party web site is a trip — straight to a creepy anti-American neverneverland. This party isn’t just interested in a do-over of the statehood vote. AIP’s “statehood primer” calls statehood a “cruel hoax,” insists that Washington has acted as a colonial power, and refers to “the Americans.” As in, “you people.”
I recommend you check out the store tab on the AIP web site, where for $15 you can buy a t-shirt with their favorite graphic: a giant snake shooting out of Washington, D.C. and devouring Alaska. Yes, a picture really is worth a thousand words.
The Palin Withdrawal Watch is on.
