Winky the Wordsmith
We're starting to see how Alaska's Winky You Betcha is planning her emergence in the "lower 48": by having someone ghost write a column in the increasingly right-leaning Washington Post. We won't link to the WaPo on principle, but take it from us that there's no way Winky wrote this column on the cap-and-trade energy issue herself. She can't even tell us what newspapers she reads. But her right-wing backers know they have to sell her as someone familiar with major national issues, even if they have to hire someone to write columns for her. But this is so transparent it's laughable.
