Welcome to this week’s edition of The Alaska Stalker, a semi-regular lighthearted round up of the best and worst of Alaska’s social media landscape.
My species is NOT your prom dress! Also, is “Easy” P a female?! Ack. This whole roll out unbearably polarizing.
Senators: they’re just like us!
Wait a second…. Senator Sullivan?!!! Was that you?! 😱
Actual footage of Representative Lora Reinbold when she heard Senator Anna MacKinnon was not seeking re-election.
Something next level happening here

The session is over and, if you can’t even remember to tweet the correct vote tallies, it’s not a moment too soon. Anyone want to guess who the lone no vote was?
If you guessed Representative David Eastman then you’re correct!!! His penchant for voting no is turning into a bad sitcom catch phrase – Pulling a NEASTMAN? Classic NEASTMAN? Full NEASTMAN? I’m sure we’ll come to a consensus on the exact line before Representative Eastman does.
Not sure if it was all the NEASTMANS, or maybe Representative Les Gara really needs a vacation. He’s clearly #notafan. Hopefully Representative Gara can spend some quality time fishing. If he needs any tips on his catch and release technique he can call the new Anchorage non-emergency line at 311. Those guys are pros!
Because most of you have blocked him on social media, here’s a screen cap from district 23 candidate Forrest McDonald’s Facebook Page. Glad to see he can take a joke. Best of luck to Forrest’s lovely wife, Jini, on her citizenship test next week.
Maybe she should brush up on a local favorite, the Bong Hits 4 Jesus case.
A loyal tipster sent us this low key lol from self-professed #akleg nerd Will Muldoon’s Twitter feed. I mean, has Will ever been to God’s Country? Maybe we should crowd source a Landmine-sponsored field trip. Must sees for me are Barter Town and the famous Islamic compound. I wouldn’t say no to the Musk Ox Farm either. YAHOOOO, Mat-Su!!!!
Internet fail of the week: When you’re one of the highest profile public-private partnerships in Alaska, it might be a good idea to keep your website current. Looking at you ASMI. Who the hell even manages this site?
A cautionary internet tale: If you screen cap something (that was, apparently, deleted seconds after you screen capped it) and send it to three people real quick before bed, you might wake up to find it on a rival political blog, posted dozens of times on social media, and discussed on local talk radio. Thanks to all the tipsters (and there were MANY of you) who sent me my own screen cap for the column this week! And watch out to whoever leaked my screen grab! I’m on to you… I think we all know better than to use that word. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about then you probably don’t get any of my jokes anyway.
