Getting Censored by the Anchorage Daily News

I have to laugh at the ADN and the monitors of the ADN. They have a way about them and they love the hell out of Mike Doogan who is not too bright when it comes to being a Legislator.

On today's ADN, they ran an article called Protesters tell Palin to take stimulus funds

I wrote a response to the article.

Their system is not the best when it comes to allowing yourself to edit so I wrote another one where I corrected the statement with "to not accept" to clarify the point with a correction. It was there and it's gone now.

To my Rep. Mike Doogan. Since when is it un-Alaskan to accept federal dollars that are not free as you like to think they are.

In case you haven't noticed it's called a deficit. CBO: US deficit ballooning to record $1.7 trillion. Who is going to pay back the government for all of that FREE Money.

And to or newly elected Senator... Are you having a reading comprehension problem?

From page H1412 of the Final Stimulus Bill, �SEC. 111. EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE: You know the part that gave the bonuses to AIG. The bill you read... You signed it. And it looks like Dodd is losing because of it.

Next, blogger Diogenes had this to say:

Hey Lamb, didn't Doogan crush you in an election? Didn't Bush and Cheney dig this economic hole we are in? I think Palin has been getting help in making all her wrong decisions, she is not smart enough to be as stupid as she seems.

Now how many of you would think I would let an opportunity to go by without responding? I did and the ADN pulled both and then put Diogenes back up.

I reminded Diogenes that one, yes Doogan did beat me in the general election and two, he had to get about 90 grand to do it and have an army of door knockers to do it.

During the primary however, I knew for a fact Doogan's campaign manager and staffers were concerned when they saw I had gotten more votes overall then Doogan did.

They enlisted Eric Croft and Hollis French. And I was just one guy with about $3000.00 to spend on the entire campaign.

In the past, the response of the ADN is comical when it came to Doogan. Sheila Toomey from the ear.

What am I missing here? This is from 1997 -- nine years ago when we didn't have a shooting gang problem. Now we do. So, what's the point?

Toomey missed the point that Doogan didn't think we had a gang problem and I pointed out in 1998 I did. Later I ran a commercial on Doogan being against the longevity bonus and it being at odds with Palin's statement that she wanted to reinstate it.

Prior to the primary, I had posted this: Plugging Away

Now being a celebrity and an ADN columnist (I almost forgot he was an ADN columnist) has its good and its bad. The bad thing for Mike is that most visitors to this blog are now looking at entries on this site titled "The World According to Doogan."

Trust me.

And since I know it will be a "love fest" between the ADN and Mike, I'll just have to exercise my First Amendment rights.

I will be looking at running radio ads once or twice a day five days a week.

The ads will sound like this:

(My voice)

The following message is brought to you and paid for by the Committee to Elect Thomas Lamb.

(Robin's voice)

Alor's darlings this is Sheila Clue-me from the Alaska Ear Lobe.

Darlings, it seems that the lovable Mike Doogan while pooh poohing the Governor on cutting the longevity bonus, endorsed cutting the longevity bonus himself.

Will Mike Doogan do a flip-flop while courting those senior earwigs who lost their longevity bonus? Earwigs would like to know.

More to come in the World According to Doogan at

I figure if the ADN can play the game, so can I. (smile)

The Mp3 commercial version...I changed it from ear lobe to ear ache.

After the primary, the editors called me a "Hobby Horse rider". However, once Doogan was elected, he changed on the issue. And to give credit, he did the right thing.

I had a good laugh on that one. Anyway, the ADN is taking out most of the pro-Palin comments on this article.

Let them, they will soon be bankrupt anyway. Overtime, I have seen this paper become less effective at changing public sentiment other than to cancel subscriptions.

People who copy, paste, and keep other peoples' comments from public boards are creepy! Get help.

people that make assinine comments about other people's comments are creepy...

The point here is the ADN's censorship.

Get help...

Did you happen to read the latest People magazine spread on Gov. Palin?

They quote a "Tom Whitstine Jr" whom they describe as "a longtime co-worker of Todd’s".

Is he related to the catty lady you've written about?

We have the entire article typed out. I'd be happy to email it to you. Shoot me an email at and I'll reply to you with the article.
