I have a man-crush on Joe Miller
Thanks to Media Matters (thought I’d never write anything like that) for highlighting my clip from CNN last night about Joe Miller. I so totally have a man-crush on this dude. He calls the Democrats ‘socialists’, says Barack Obama is ‘bad for America’, and wants to privatize social security. Wish they’d actually kept it going to the point where I was also praising Jesse Helms. | Read More »
More Notes From Alaska
Big Government has more on Alaska and notes: Murkowski did not endorse Joe Miller. This is getting to be a trend among beaten Republicans that they don’t endorse their more conservative challengers. See e.g. Bill McCollum. Sources in Alaska confirm Murkowski is in talks with the Libertarians, though the LIbertarians are saying she won’t get on the ballot for them. By the way, it is | Read More »
Knee Capping Mitch McConnell: Lisa Murkowski Concedes to Joe Miller
Lisa Murkowski is conceding the senate primary in Alaska to RedState and Sarah Palin endorsed Joe Miller. This news is bigger than Lisa Murkowski. While Establishment Republicans will bristle at it, this is a near total kneecapping of Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, not to mention another rejection of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Consider this inside baseball fact: McConnell has chosen as his loyal | Read More »
The Joe Miller Moneybomb
Friends, there is a moneybomb underway for Joe Miller in Alaska. He needs all the support he can get right now. The odds of victory are in his favor, but he’s going to take a huge financial hit to keep the NRSC and Murkowski from stealing his victory. Support Joe with what you can. I know money is tight. But we need this guy in | Read More »
PPP: Miller, Murkowski both lead general
Public Policy Polling jumped out ahead to poll the Alaska Senate race even as Republican Lisa Murkowski tries to drag out her primary defeat at the hands of Joe Miller. PPP also checked up on what might happen if Murkowski somehow were able to dislodge the Libertarian nominee and take that party’s line on the ballot in November.
Palin Media Bias Rears Its Head In Hilarious Wishful Thinking
Earlier this week, the media once again displayed why no one can take them seriously. The Fourth Estate is totally insolvent and is declaring bankruptcy, morally and otherwise. In this recent instance, having to do with Tuesday night’s Republican primary in Alaska, it was at least quite hilarious. You see, Sarah Palin had endorsed Joe Miller over the incumbent alleged Republican Senator, Lisa Murkowski. As | Read More »
Just How Badly Has the NRSC Screwed Up? Worse Than You Think.
17,000 of the 24,000 absentee ballots in Alaska will probably be counted Monday. Given Joe Miller’s late surge, it may not help him. However, I am told by a number of people that given where those absentee ballots came from and his overall support in the areas, the odds remain in joe Miller’s favor. But word is coming out of Washington that the National Republican | Read More »
Joe Miller Fires A Shot in Alaska
The NRSC has sent its top lawyer to Alaska on Lisa Murkowski’s behalf and Joe Miller went on Fox today to point out the NRSC is inappropriately meddling in the race now, even though Murkowski is flirting with an independent or write-in bid. Well, I’ve just received a copy of a letter (PDF) from Miller’s attorneys demanding the disqualification of Lisa Murkowski campaign observer Bonnie | Read More »
RED ALERT: Emergency in Alaska
Joe Miller has won the GOP nomiation for the United States Senate in Alaska. Looking at where the absentee ballots are coming from, etc., Murkowski is not going to be able to make it up. Sources close to Miller, Palin, and external media sources all seem to think Murkowski can’t make up the difference. But there is a problem. The absentee ballots will not be | Read More »
It looks like Santa Claus might be bringing us an early Christmas present from the North Pole precincts of Alaska. Joe Miller is ahead of Lisa Murkowski, but it is close and could be weeks before all the absentee ballots are counted. The Murkowski people are desperate and I’m sure know a few rogue elves who can deliver up some “lost” ballot boxes. But so | Read More »
Primary Open Thread
Take your pick. You’e got Arizona, Vermont, Alaska, Florida, and runoffs in Oklahoma. I suspect we’ll be giving comment amnesty to people in Arizona tonight — within reason.
The Sleeper in Alaska
The Wall Street Journal has a great overview of what is at stake today in Alaska. Allies of Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski are looking over their shoulders before Tuesday’s GOP primary. Internal polls taken for her campaign show Fairbanks attorney Joe Miller closing the gap. A new RT Nielson poll also has Ms. Murkowski’s lead down to 47% to 35%. If accurate, it shows Ms. | Read More »
Senator Lisa Murkowski Sells Out Conservatives — Again
Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) has done it again. Earlier this week we learned that Lisa Murkowski opposes the repeal of ObamaCare. RS Insider has been informed that there is a strong push by Senate Appropriations Chairman Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) to pass S. 1011, the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act, also known as the “Akaka Bill,” this year with the active support of Senator Murkowski. The | Read More »
Lisa Murkowski Opposes Repeal of Obamacare
One of the countless reasons I’m supporting Joe Miller in Alaska? His opponent, pro-abortion senator Lisa Murkowski, opposes repeal of Obamacare because . . . wait for it . . . if it gets repealed then we’ve done nothing to address healthcare. Oh, she doesn’t like Medicare cuts either.
Joe Miller for US Senate
At midnight last night my phone rang. It was Joe Miller calling from Alaska. It’s the first we’ve spoken on the phone, though we’ve traded emails and I’ve certainly been intrigued by his candidacy. Sarah Palin has gotten on board. The Tea Party Express has gotten on board. Conservatives from around the country are rallying to him against Lisa Murkowski — one of Mitch McConnell’s | Read More »
