Home sweet home!!!!! Yup, I just got back to Alaska and the news is fast and furious!

Morrigan and I are both so happy to be home, it's not funny. We had an absolute blast in all of the hectic craziness, Kim and Erick were the most wonderful host and hostess (with the mostest) and we truly loved meeting so many fabulous people from all over the country.

However, we were ready to come home and I desperately missed my husband!

I'm pleased to say that there are many new and exciting developments happening on the blog in the coming week!

- It seems that Ed Schultz has decided to come to Alaska in two weeks and do a National Town Meeting on the Palin selection! KUDO is in the thick of the organization process with "Team Fargo" and more information will be forthcoming as the week progresses.

- Many have wanted verification from the "source" on my story regarding McHugh Pierre's revealation that the McCain team was coming to ask questions about the "Trooper-gate" issue...vetting after the fact!!!!! Well, McHugh can thank himself for trying to lie about it...the source became so incensed over his comments on the blog that the source will be coming over for dinner and an interview. The identity will be revealed on a post...with pictures...tomorrow!

- Of course, I also have tons of pictures, stories and material from Denver that I haven't had time to edit or print yet. Those will be appearing periodically this week (probably for the next several weeks)!

Thanks for reading!

Welcome back, CD, Morrigan! Funny - you're back, but it seems half the AK press is now headed to Minneapolis/St. Paul. Wonder why?

Good on Ed, I guess....

The Council For National Policy Meets In Minn, Vets Palin
By Max Blumenthal Mon Sep 01, 2008 at 02:48:46 AM EST print story
Last week, while the media focused almost obsessively on the DNC's spectacle in Denver, the country's most influential conservatives met quietly at a hotel in downtown Minneapolis to get to know Sarah Palin. The assembled were members of the Council for National Policy, an ultra-secretive cabal that networks wealthy right-wing donors together with top conservative operatives to plan long-term movement strategy.
CNP members have included Tony Perkins, James Dobson, Grover Norquist, Tim LaHaye and Paul Weyrich. At a secret 2000 meeting of the CNP, George W. Bush promised to nominate only pro-life judges; in 2004, then-Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist told the group, "The destiny of the nation is on the shoulders of the conservative movement." This year, thanks to Sarah Palin's selection, the movement may have finally aligned itself behind the campaign of John McCain.
