In a surprise move that has sent shockwave across the political spectrum, the Alaskan Independence Party (AIP), which advocates an in-state referendum which includes the option of Alaska becoming an independent nation, has today announced that it is changing it's name to Alaskan Independence from Palin.
Moose Lodge an AIP spokesperson had this to say. "Time had come to cut ties with Palin. This is a change we believe in. We no longer want her as our Governor"
Sarah Palin hit back claiming that she had achieved her AIP mission of making Alaska independent. "Part of my strategy was to give Alaska such bad publicity, that it would be hated and isolated from the rest of America. Without doubt I have delivered on that promise, and for the AIP to now want independence from Palinsville is about as dumb a putting lipstick on a pit-bull. I have also managed to get $150,000 worth of the finest designer combat gear for the party and this is how they repay me."
Russia is not taking the news lightly. Shortly after learning of the AIP move Russian President Dmitry Medvedev immediately announced he was ordering the immediate recall of missiles being deployed to Poland. "You probably will not remember that on Wednesday, while the world was blinded by Obamamania, I announced that Russia would deploy missiles outside Poland to combat the threat posed by U.S Star Wars defence system. Well today the world has taken a more sinister turn, broght about by the irresponsible AIP. Today I have ordered these missiles to be relocated to Canada to combat the threat posed by Sarah Palin. I see Sarah Palin as a bigger threat to the interests of Russia than the Star Wars Trilogy. The fact that she can see Russia from her house is bad enough; she is now wounded having lost the White House race and being cast aside by the AIP. We have intelligence to suggest that she has mastered the art of blowing-a-short-fuse from John McCain. Her love for guns and Arnold Schwarzenegger also makes my KGB staff a little uneasy, so we are taking no chances. "
