Dare I Say That Alaskan Repubs = Stoopid

Maybe it's related to feeling better about the crook you know than the crook you don't know, but still:
Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska won the Republican primary in his home state on Tuesday, soundly defeating six Republican challengers less than a month after he was indicted by a federal grand jury for concealing more than $250,000 in gifts from an oil services company. [...]

"People have been voting for Ted for 40 years and their inclination is to keep doing it," Dave Cuddy, a former state lawmaker who finished a distant second to Mr. Stevens, said in a phone interview several hours before the polls closed.
For all we know, the other candidates may not have ranked high enough in the corruption scale to take the victory lap. Perhaps Dave Cuddy should've worked harder on bribes instead of his actual campaign.

Kudos to the Alaskan Republicans who have made democracy that much more of a mystery.
