Alaska Governor attempts to ward off recall by saying he is a victim just like Donald Trump.

Oh, is he also a Russian asset? I had not realized that.

Gov. Mike Dunleavy is trying to generate national opposition to the recall campaign by appearing on right-wing talk shows and giving interviews to sympathetic websites, portraying himself as a victim of the same forces opposing President Trump.

If Dunleavy can sell this line of hokum, it might gain him financial assistance from wealthy Outside donors beyond his brother in Texas. Without this alleged Trump parallel of persecution, he’ll have a hard time generating national attention.

After telling the audience at a Republican chili cook-off in Palmer last week, that “I may call upon you to help out” fighting the recall, he plugged his website and mentioned he is taking his message Outside.

“I’ve been doing a number of national shows. I’ll be going back to D.C. and New York to do some of the shows that you will watch on some of the conservative channels. Have a discussion about Alaska. They’re very interested in Alaska. You’re going to see a lot of editorials.”

This sounds like a campaign trip for Dunleavy.

His pitch? He has been persecuted by the left, the news media and special interests, just like President Trump.

Dunleavy has been practicing this spiel for weeks. And it is likely to be his major argument in the recall. It’s a weak hand.

Apparently Dunleavy has not been following the news, because tying yourself to a candidate who is about to be impeached seems like a very bad idea. 

Of course, to be fair, Dunleavy does have a number of things in common with Trump.

Both are unfit for their current job, both take a scorched earth approach to politics, and both are about to be removed from office.

    One would wonder, why is he going National with a local (Alaska) issue? People from other states can’t vote in a recall so the only thing I can see that he might get is money. And Sarah Palin already tapped out all the brain dead suckers with her Sarah Pac.

    You would think he’d be going after voters in Alaska on this issue. Especially if he was truly being persecuted by the left. Alaska has been a right leaning state since the pipeline days. So getting votes against a recall would be easy if this recall effort was really only from the left. The truth is, he has pissed off the entire political spectrum and has very little support in Alaska.

    What a jerkwad. He is a coward trying to talk around us Alaskans. The reason he is floundering for help outside our state is because its his own party here in this state that disagree with his slash and burn techniques to our budget. Besides who is he that he must be retained in office, another second coming of Jesus Christ himself, like the Donald?

    True Victims

    The Supreme Court may be poised to legitimize Trump’s desperate effort to stymie Congress’ impeachment investigation. The judge Donald Trump appointed to take Brett Kavanaugh’s place on a D.C. federal appeals court may have just blazed a trail toward a high court decision that could cement the court’s role as Trump’s protector, and gravely tarnish the Supreme Court’s reputation in the process.

    He’s going to have a hard time making America GAF about Alaska. Perhaps the remaining Koch still clinging to life can save Dunleavy the way he saved Walker.

    And perhaps Dunleavy and Trump will be gone before they can gang rape the Tongass for a fistful of dollars.

    Is Governor Dunkock a victim just like Sarah the half baked Alaskan Governor thought she was?

    Could they both be self inflicted victims of their Dunning Kruger syndrome?

      Eh. I think those with $$$ tap idiots they can move thru while they are in government. Get what they want while idiot is in office. Then there is their blacklists. Gotta get payback quietly. Best way to do it. Because, you know, the politician is an idiot, wouldn’t have a clue!
