Okay, okay...I know everyone has been sitting on the edge of their
privy seats wondering how the Rent-A-Party (aka "The Sub-Arctic Titanic
of Politics") fared in the recent primaries here in the Interior, so here
Now, keep something in mind as you read these results: the Interior is
the heart of the Rent-A-Party. Der Fuhrer Vogel "graced" us with his
presence and as the infirmities of advancing age took their toll, he
devised the party back in the mid-70's here in the Interior. So...you
should think the bastion, the stronghold, Yea, Brethren and Sistren!, the
very for-r-r-r-rtress of AIP-ity would be...the INTERIOR!
The AIP fielded 1 candidate here on the Fairbanks ballots: Paul
He finished last.
Indeed, surpassing even the last performance of the party when they
dropped from their 1990 high of 39% of the vote to their 1994 basement
13% of the vote, we now see them seeking subterranean levels as their
sole candidate on the entire ballot received *barely* 11% of the vote!
Right here! In the Interior! Just about 15 miles from Lynette and
Dexter Clarke, the penultimate-Grand Poobahs of Das Partie!
I tell ya, folks...I love to watch "Rocky and Bullwinkle", "Monty
Python", "The 3 Stooges", the "Little Rascals", etc. But when the AIP
finally dwindles/splinters/transmogrifies into its final bit of light and
then that little glimmer goes out....I will have lost one of my greatest
sources of amusement Alaska has ever offered me.
.....Art, who will just have to watch more 3 Stooges and see if he can
tell which one is Joe...
