The Alaska Stalker – April 17, 2021

Welcome to this edition of the Alaska Stalker, a lighthearted round up of the best and worst of Alaska’s social media landscape.

***

If you enjoy the Alaska Stalker, please consider supporting working moms like me by sending in hot tips, overheards, and spotted ins. You can reach me at [email protected] As always, thanks for reading.

***

Looks like the Easter Bunny paid a late visit to Sen. Lisa Murkowski. I haven’t been paying attention – do all her posts have dozens of folks calling her a RINO in the comments?

***

Lying dormant since that wacky turkey post from Thanksgiving, Sen. David Wilson finally resurfaced on social media just in time for Easter. I was really starting to miss that guy. Godzilla and Sen. Wilson. I mean, did you see Godzilla vs. Kong? 🔥🔥🔥 I hope we see more posts from him before the next major holiday.

***

Speaking of social media absences, can someone please tell Rep. Rauscher that the Governor is okay? George has been off the innerwebs since February. Let’s send him some positive vibes for a speedy and safe return to Facebook.

Check out the graphics for Rep. James Kaufman and Sen. Roger Holland’s meet and greet. Because nothing says you live in South Anchorage like coffee, hiking boots, tacos, and *squints* pregnancy tests? Wait a minute…. I feel seen. 👩‍🍼👶😴❌☕🌮🌮🌮🌮😂

***

I cannot get over this poll from HAC & SAC. How devastated Luke and Tyson must be. Only one vote each. SAD!

***

I guess #legwrestlinggate continues to be a thing. That or Rep. McCabe is still devastated he didn’t get an invite. As expected with any McCabe post, the comments are the best part. All our faves weighed in: Judy, Laddie, and don’t forget Art.

***
While my preferred way of problem solving involves getting together with a small group of friends and playing some pong, I can’t fault Rep. Kaufman for trying something out of the box. I sure hope he cleaned up after this rager. #janitors #classy

***

Maybe next time James can borrow one of DeLena’s binders.

***

I think you’re doing it wrong, Rep. Josephson. You’re supposed to add he/him to your bio. While I appreciate you clarifying your pronouns, the “I AM A MAN” in your profile pic is a bit extreme.

***

Andy’s not the only representative with an updated profile pic. I am loving Rep. Zulkosky’s new photo. Beautiful smile and doggo. 🐾

Of course, it doesn’t get better than this! 💁‍♀️👑

Memories
Light the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were…

Holy wholesome! Check out Sen. Tom Begich and Commissioner Michael Johnson on the South High School student-led morning announcement show. Of course Tom starts speaking while he’s still on mute and the high schooler has to gently correct him. If you want to know what Tom’s fav ice cream flavor is and hear Michael talk about how him and Tom are bros, then this is the video for you.

***

Let’s keep those good vibes going with this jam sesh between Sen. Josh Revak and lobbyist John Bitney. 👏👏👏

***

As more and more legislators complete their second vaccination shots, leggie “vaccine selfies” are waning. Mask or no mask, I never miss an opportunity to post a photo of Rep. Neal Foster.
🌶️🌶️🌶️

 

***

There’s always one. Leave it to Rep. Grier Hopkins to take a shirtless leggie vaccine selfie on his official rep page. I am pretty sure I’ve seen more photos of Grier shirtless than all the other legislators (past and present) combined. 🙈

 

***

In case you didn’t hear, Anchorage had an election last week. Rep. Tarr isn’t the only super voter that waited until the last minute. I used a dropbox for the first time on election day!

***

While the election has yet to be certified, it looks like Dave Bronson and Forrest Dunbar are headed to a runoff. Either way, that’s GREAT news for the Stalker’s business model. Besides that APOC bomb, Forrest’s posts have been pretty low key. He has been tapping into my millennial sensibilities on Twitter. I mean, I don’t see Dave Bronson paying respects to DMX. 🙏

\

***

And who doesn’t love a firm commitment to putting a stop to our endless winter? 😎

***

I know Dave Bronson has the market cornered on “Fun Fact Friday” posts. But, if Forrest ever needs a good “Throw Back Thursday” last week marked one year since he wore an old ARMY t-shirt on his face in public as a mask. And now he’s probably going to be mayor!

Team Bronson is channeling some serious teenage girl energy with endless Facebook and Instagram stories. He’s not even on Twitter, natch. All those gifs tho…. 🌈✨🦄🌼🐚🧁

 

***

Did you see his latest commercial channeling Jimmy Fallon? It’s fine. But I am quite concerned with the way Bronson licks an envelope. 😬

***

It took a couple days, but former Anchorage mayoral candidate, Bill Falsey, finally updated his profile photo to a non-campaign pic. As someone astutely pointed out, it looks like Bill’s searching for a job. Great pic, Bill! But it’s missing something… Not quite woke enough…

***

There ya go. Perfect. 👌

***

Would you look at that. Gov. Dunleavy finally took a photo with something that made him look like he’s a normal size.

***

Commissioner Jason Brune would like to personally remind everyone “don’t poo in our blue!” Don’t tell Homer!

***

There’s a lot going on here. Either way, I think John Boehner’s new book is a real contender for the next Landmine Book Club pick.

***

Let’s end things on a positive note. Thanks for putting everything into perspective, Rep. Cronk. If you’re luck enough to be able to, please take a minute to call your mom and dad today. ❤️

***

Sent via Stalker mail: Can we please get an official Landmine poll up guessing what Grier is going to name his baby?

***

Spotted in South Anchorage: a Forrest Dunbar for mayor sign that *wasn’t* vandalized. Sheesh.

***

Spotted on the way to pre-school: Mike Robbins volunteers taking down their signs in South Anchorage. 👍 Judy’s signs with her face on them are still out there haunting me. 😱

***

Spotted in Palm Springs low-key stalking Sen. Dan Sullivan: Landmine Editor-in-Chief Jeff Landfield.

***

Spotted in Seward: STEVE-O!

***

 Overhead in Anchorage: “I was looking at the House member’s page online. The only person not smiling in their official head shot is Rep. Liz Snyder. Probably shouldn’t mention it to her.”

***

The Alaska Stalker was born and raised in Alaska. She lives bear free in South Anchorage with her husband and three kids four and under. She is not Jeff Landfield.

Boring!

Judy might party, she might not party—that’s hard to say because she sure pours the wine at her parties for the women’s Republican club that has the logo that can only be referred to as “red fuck-me pumps.” She loves to be around the booze as it helps her control her flock of scared-shitless Republican women.
