Seems the Alaska Legislature has nothing better to do. While it's nice to have Wasilla regain the epicenter of stupid back from Fairbanks, one would think that there's gotta be something, anything else more serious in state business than codifying obsessive gun fetishism:

That said, Alaska still does not have an official state amphibian... I say nominate the political toady.
