Berkowitz vs. Parnell? Say it Ain’t So!

27 05 2008

CQ Politics has a great summary of the current statistics and intrigue in Alaska’s upcoming House race.  It speaks of the looming specter of Sean Parnell unseating Don Young in the primary and making the seat harder to win for a Democratic opponent.  Flashback to the Murkowski/Palin scenario.

See my previous post “Operation Chaos. (Only good)” for a devious bit of ‘strategery’.

One of Berkowitz’ pluses is the fact that Alaska needs representation in the majority party.  And I believe it’s going to be the majority party for a good long time.

In party politics the full name or surname of a candidate can sometimes result in comparisons being made with another politician with the same or similar sounding name. For example, the Lt. Governor of Alaska is one Sean Parnell. There is another Parnell in the political history of Ireland – Charles Stewart Parnell (1846 – 1891). Here is a quotation that is attributed to him –

‘No man has a right to fix the boundary of the march of a nation; no man has a right to say to his country, “Thus far shalt thou go and no further”.
