    Good riddance. We need some new blood in DC. Corrupt MF'ers like Stevens need to get canned. I guess this would also mean no Sarah Palin in Stevens' senatorial seat.

    I don't consider him losing his seat to be the big news. The fact it was even close is unbelievable.

    The idea that almost 50% of the state voted for him even though he was convicted of corruption is quite sad. Our expectations of our politicians are so low that folks actually thought he should keep his job.

    Maybe they know something in Alaska about his opponent that you don't know.

    Thats because we know they all are nothing but "SCUM" we have to choose the less Scummier of the Scum Pile.

    If there is any truth to that, then it is equally sad. Fact is almost 50% of Alaska thought the best man for the job was a corrupt felon.

    That was a deflection, in admitting that a Republican is a fraud and corrupt. Yes, there are Democrats who are also frauds and are corrupt, but there has been nothing on the new senator elect from Alaska. Oh, by the way, that's 56 with 2 Indepedents who usually vote Dem. I'll be content with one more D for 59.

    That was an accident. Not something he did on purpose. And not something related to his job as senator. While I can understand someone not voting for him for that reason, it really is no comparison.
