Alaska Women Reject Palin Rally

Go read what Mudflats has to say about the anti-Palin rally in Anchorage yesterday.  He says this never happens in Alaska.  I remain hopeful that if Obama stays on message, and McCain and Palin’s issues and personalities become well known, then Obama will be able to begin the very difficult task come January of healing this country.

Well, that’s my hope.  Although what seems to happen when culture wars invade politics is too much of this:


These women hatched the plan, printed up flyers, posted them around town, and sent notices to local media outlets.  One of those media outlets was KBYR radio, home of Eddie Burke, a long-time uber-conservative Anchorage talk show host.  Turns out that Eddie Burke not only announced the rally, but called the people who planned to attend the rally “a bunch of socialist baby-killing maggots”, and read the home phone numbers of the organizers aloud over the air, urging listeners to call and tell them what they thought.  The women, of course, received many nasty,  harassing and threatening messages.
