More fun at Alaska repug central

Upheaval in state GOP appears far from over

This is how strange things have become for the Alaska Republican Party.

Veteran party leaders are hosting get-togethers to meet their new state GOP boss for the first time. The outgoing chairman is urging the Republican faithful to stay home when the statewide convention resumes next month in Anchorage, and for the first time in a dozen years of Republican king-making, no one is quite sure where the party is headed.

The upheaval came in late April. Ron Paul supporters scored a surprise triumph over old-guard Republicans by installing one of their own as the next party chairman. For right- leaning Alaskans it was either scary or exhilarating, depending on their brand of conservative beliefs.

"They only want to get Ron Paul nominated at the national convention. They could care less about the Republican Party of Alaska," said Gail Phillips, a former state party officer and former House speaker. "It's a means to getting what they want."

2. Any chance we can get the Dems in this state to actually campaign to win?

 

They've been in a defensive crouch for so long that some of them don't realize they have the right to stand up straight.
