- Sen, Stevens wins re-election - not as unlikely as one might think. Remember that Alaskans love their pork and the Senator has been bringing home the bacon for 40 years.
- The Senate gets together and summarily boots his felonious keester out of the Capitol.
- Alaska holds a special election to dill the empty Senate seat. #1 likely candidate? A certain popular power-hungry Alaska governor.
- Sarah Palin joins her (no-longer?) best pal John McCain in a Democratically-dominated Senate.
Yeah, yeah. I know there are a lot of "if"s in that, but I don't think it's all that unlikely.
