Bush in a Skirt
It didn't get on the news, but should have. According to AKMuckraker, our favorite Alaskan blogger, the largest political rally Alaska has ever seen took place when Governor Palin left the state this past weekend. It wasn't the rally covered by the national news networks. It was the one that wasn't. It was the "Alaska Women Reject Palin" rally.
Below is the video of the rally. Here's what AK had to say about it:
"Never, have I seen anything like it in my 17 and a half years living in Anchorage. The organizers had someone walk the rally with a counter, and they clicked off well over 1400 people (not including the 90 counter-demonstrators). This was the biggest political rally ever, in the history of the state. I was absolutely stunned. The second most amazing thing is how many people honked and gave the thumbs up as they drove by. And even those that didn’t honk looked wide-eyed and awe-struck at the huge crowd that was growing by the minute. This just doesn’t happen here."
