Tell the truth, lose your job

Some of you may remember my report on the recent circus in Alaska where politicians sought to out-do themselves coming up with bogus information and outright lies about marijuana — part of an attempt by Alaska Governor Murkowski to over-ride the state’s constitution and claim that marijuana has somehow become extraordinarily dangerous. The one sane voice then — Barbara Brink, head of the public defenders agency, who testified against the bill.
Now it’s reported that Gov. Murkowski won’t be reappointing her.
Somebody get this jerk governor a job in the private sector. The only words I want to hear from him are “Do you want fries with that?”
Related: If you can get through Anchorage Daily News’ annoying registration process, there’s a cute satirical piece about the subject – a “what if Murkowski tried to ban wine” speculation.
