This Weasel Will Probably Get a Promotion at Google

Caleb at RedState caught some funny business going on with Google Maps:

A reader emails that if you search Google today, on the eve of Glenn Beck’s rally, a search for Lincoln Memorial turns up, instead, the wrong address. And not just any wrong address either; it takes you to the FDR Memorial. Curious.

Curious, indeed. Then in the comments,

search result.

See “EDIT HISTORY”

They even bragged about it, saying, “You guys suck.”

Classy.

Read all the comments. There’s more. Log files. Geek stuff. Instead of heads rolling, somebody will be high-fiving because they think they messed with the “enemy.”

If you ever needed another reason to NOT support the proposition of the Verizon/Google mega-internetz-monopoly, well, here it is.

What’s That Smell?

In keeping with the dead fish meme, we continue to watch the shenanigans up in Alaska.

Stacy names names that will be become all too familiar in the weeks to come. [sic]

Early Wednesday morning, Alaska Libertarian Party chairman Scott Kohlhaas got a call from ex-Republican Andrew Halcro, asking if Kohlhaas would be open to having Sen. Lisa Murkowski replace Dave Haase as the LP’s Senate candidate.

Such a switch would be the only option for Murkowksi to be on the Nov. 2 ballot, should she and the National Republican Senatorial Committee fail in their effort to overturn conservative challenger Joe Miller’s 1,668-vote victory in Tuesday’s primary.

A former Republican state legislator, Halcro has disavowed any “official” connection to the Murkowski campaign, but a source in Anchorage says Halcro has masterminded the effort to secure the LP nomination for the incumbent Republican senator as a fallback option, should Miller’s victory hold up. And Halcro acknowledged to an Anchorage Daily News reporter that he is in direct communication with Murkowski.

Major national media have quoted Halcro without noting that, after Sarah Palin won the GOP gubernatorial nomination in 2006, Halcro launched a third-party vengeance campaign focused on attcking Palin. He finished with 9% of the vote, and subsequently launched a blog which made him a “folk hero” to Palin’s enemies… [All Emphasis – Admin]

Hmmm. Election stealing and PDS in the same post? Hmmm.

Erick’s sources report there’s a lot of money involved. Isn’t that always the case when one or more politicians are gathered together?

John Cornyn, Chairman of the NRSC, has been upfront that the NRSC will help incumbent Republicans being challenged. But there is a problem with Murkowski. I have confirmed through multiple sources that Lisa Murkowski has already approached the Alaska Libertarian Party. In exchange for putting her on the Libertarian ticket in November, Murkowski will hand the Libertarians a sizable chunk of her +$1 million war chest. [All Emphasis – Admin]

And Ace, well, Ace is in a bit of a angry snit. I don’t blame him.

Either we have a democracy or we do not.

Well? What do you think?

Stench and Death

The stench is up in Alaska, where the Republican Nation Senate Committee is fiddling with the election returns because one of their own lost her primary bid. Not dead fish, mind you, but crony politics as usual. She’s even been accused of “trying to pull a Franken.” That’s pretty low. More here.

The death knell is for more American jobs being cut due to the destructive nature of Obamacare. But the President can’t be bothered on his nth vacation.

Election day can’t come soon enough. 68 days…
