Alaska bloggers ponder terrifying prospect of life without Sarah

On Sunday, Philip Munger, whose day job is working as a composer and music teacher, is hosting a resignation party at his lakefront house in Alaska’s Matanuska-Susitna Valley. Munger has gained a significant following on his Progressive Alaska blog, one of a handful in the state that have been nipping at Palin’s heels since Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) tapped her as his running mate.

“We are not going to celebrate Sarah Palin going down,” Munger demurs. “The topic of the party is how can we work together to change Alaska for the future.”…

Yet there will also be a sense of loss. Munger even confesses that he’ll miss the woman he has torn to pieces online. “I guess so, to be totally honest,” he says. “I think all of us will. But she was an enormous distraction.”
