The Alaska Stalker – January 22, 2021

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

What a week: we have a new President, Vice President, and, most importantly, State Legislature! While things in Juneau remain as divided as ever, I’m pleased to receive so many warm messages saying how right I was about a certain former failed candidate turned staffer. And it’s only week one. Enjoy the show, folks! 🌹🤡 P.S. Does anyone else find it odd that Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer specifically mentioned greeting new and old FACES when everyone is wearing face coverings?🤔

***

Let’s take a look at some of the mask fashion at the Capitol. Rep. Stutes’ mask is downright creepy.

***

Rep. Laddie Shaw is looking extra spicy! 🌶️

***

Rep. Geran Tarr wore white in honor of women and girls. Would have loved to see a white mask to complete the look, head to toe.

And then there’s the Sara(h)s. I HAVE NO WORDS! 🤣🤣🤣 Can’t wait to see who else hops on the #shieldwagon

***

Poor Rep. Sara Hannan must have felt left out of the Sara(h) caucus pic, so she posted her own throwback. I covered this look last year!!! Sara, you were ahead of your time! She even got the purple color scheme right.

***

About that inauguration tho. OMG, Vern. Wearing a Copper River fleece UNDER the dress coat is next level Alaska fashion. 💁‍♂️

***

You heard it here first, ladies and gentleman: Rep. Matt Claman is an out and proud Lady Gaga fan!

***

But no legislator is more excited than Rep. Harriet Drummond to be done with 45. She’s been posting about him non-stop for weeks! (Even more than Chris Constant, and that’s saying something!) She even had a daily countdown on her Facebook for the past MONTH! I mean, check out that profile pic.

***

Hopefully the Biden administration can bring peace and unity to Harriet’s Facebook timeline, and provide her with more time to post gems like this. I need an Instagram-husband as dedicated as Elstun. #swoon #forthegram

***

*Squints* Wait, I thought it was Dr. Liz Snyder? Weeiiird. 🙄

***

Sorry Toots, there’s a new dog in town. Who is this magnificent beast and what is his or her name?! I mean, the dog even kinda looks like Rep. Cronk. Right??? While I doubt this furry friend will make it to Juneau, I hope to see many more photos in the weeks ahead. 🐾🐶

***

Not sure this was the best time to post on social media that you used to be in a gang. 🙃

Why did someone give Sen. Josh Revak a mask of the Commissioner of Administration? Seems kinda weird. And a sleeping RINO pillow? Maybe Josh can act out 2022 in his office!

***

The 80s were just so wholesome and fun looking. Can we go back? Bonus points if you can pick out Rep. Thompson in the group. No, he’s not the dude holding the beer.

***

Back in Anchorage, the Recall Rivera movement is getting weird. Not only are they designing and printing custom recall banners, but they are potentially going to frame and hang it as art in their homes.

***

Might I suggest a different piece. Just take a moment to revel in the elegance and beauty that is this painting of Jeff Landfield as a centaur. Will only increase in value!

***

I’m pretty sure this is a textbook example of the one screen, two movies phenomenon. I mean, it HAS to be what he’s talking about, right?

Movie 2:

Speaking of Forrest Dunbar, he had a little stumble last week (I would say his mask slipped, but that means something very different these days…). While posting some particularly nasty hate email he received to Facebook, he doxxed the gal that sent it by intentionally not blacking out her email. When several people voiced their disapproval, Forrest doubled down stating, “It’s all public record.” Yeah, it is. But it doesn’t make it right. And, I would argue, it’s not what leaders do. I guess he remembered he is running for mayor had a change of heart because I can’t find the post anymore. ¯\_ (ツ)_/¯

***

The candidates for Anchorage mayor are finally official. Let’s take a look. George Martinez made it a family affair.

***

Bill Falsey posted this VERY HIP video that was so extra it was exhausting. Great, positive message. Too many moving words, boxes, and dots for this millennial.

***

Bill Evans kept it traditional, low key, and maybe a little boring. After the last few years of politics, I’d gladly take boring.

***

Dave Bronson seems to have a lot of momentum, but he also wears one of those creepy clear mask things.

The Mike Robbins for Mayor campaign seems to be a bit busy at the moment, but Mike did make it down to City Hall to file as well. 👀😮

***

Of course Forrest, the man to beat, filed wearing his trusty Carhartt.

***

So… Have you seen it? 🍑🙈

I mean, I’m still deciding if it’s been long enough that we even can talk about it yet, let along JOKE about it.

 

***

But did you see who liked it?

***

Anchorage also has several School Board races heating up. Sorry Kelly, but I don’t think I can vote for anyone with the last name Lessens who doesn’t use that gift in their campaign for SCHOOL BOARD. Like, really?! She couldn’t even give us a simple “Join this week for “Lessens” with Kelly.”

***

Of course, the last name strategy doesn’t work for every candidate.

***

In other local politico news, this is the most amazing birthday tribute I’ve ever seen! Dang, Cean! 🔥🔥🔥

 

***

Spotted at Costco in Juneau: Sen. Lora Reinbold wearing one of those creepy clear masks.

***

Overheard on the House floor: Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer: “Don’t everyone jump at once.” After there were no nominations for Speaker Pro Tempore.

***

Overheard in Juneau: “Eastman just passed Kevin Meyer a note. Bet it said, “I’m being arraigned on Monday so I won’t be here.”

***

Overheard in Juneau: “Jesse Kiehl has a front row seat to the best show in Juneau. (Senate Judiciary Committee)

***

Overheard: “Chris Constant is always crying about people name calling or whatever and his dislike for Trump, but his tweets pretty much sound like Trump tweets. “Hey ASS!” Really?!”

***

The Alaska Stalker was born and raised in Alaska. She lives bear free in South Anchorage with her husband, daughter, son, newborn, and Covid-19 antibodies. She is not Jeff Landfield.
