So where do candidates go from here?

So where do candidates go from here?

There are 4 comments on the Anchorage Daily News story from Nov 8, 2010, titled So where do candidates go from here?. In it, Anchorage Daily News reports that:

Thousand of ballots remain to be examined in the 2010 Senate race, but it is almost certain incumbent Lisa Murkowski will prevail wearing the mantle of write-in. Some of her ballots will be thrown out because of voter error but not enough for Joe Miller to win.

I am not a supporter of Joe Miller. He is just too far to the right for me advocating abolishing social security, medicare, medicaid. But he won the republican primary. I feel Senator Murkowski is setting a very bad precedent. I would have admired her more and had more respect for her if she had bided her time, sharpened up and run against the democratic incumbent when he came up for reelection. I think she would have had a good chance to win. I wish her good luck, but I wish she had gone about this in another way.

I see you are commenting from another state; speaking of another state that was the problem, had not Sarah Palin's lock step cronies dumped tons of money into the election, and basically sideswiping Lisa's war plan, I think Lisa would have shook the guys hand and that would have been it. She realized the constituents view was not served by the outside influence and as the Marine motto says "improvised, adapted, and overcame. Frankly the overwhelming outcome from the voters (and this is what it should be about) should stop the presses as far as I am concerned. I have never voted Republican in my life, but to have this cult of "baggers" come up here and railroad a Senate election could not be allowed. If you are not from here, here is a inside hint, most Alaskans do not like, and think Sara is a joke. Why the Tea Party adopted her, to me is as confusing as why she was picked to be VP. But the Tea Party agenda of putting up idiots (I am not a witch, and have no idea what the 1st amendment is about)(And Joe Miller) will not serve America well. Just like the history books are being rewritten about the Bush Presidency. I think the present Tea Party will the the antithesis of the original concept.

That was a great post, Lonesome Dave. I am certainly not an admirer of the Tea Partiers and I feel that they are hijacking the Republican Party. They are trying to purge the party of moderates and anyone who does not agree with them. I will never vote for a Tea Party candidate. As I said they are just too far to the right for me. In my opinion, John McCain would have won the election in 08 if it had not been for Sarah. I have always admired McCain, but I can never forget that he gave us Palin, the gift that keeps on giving. ( I hope you can get rid of the Tea Partiers in your state)

I believe you are right, good post. Some people just can't take the loss like a man. Poor loser they all are.
