Murkowski is a real POS. She's corrupt just like her father that appointed her and should have bowed out after Losing the Primary to a better candidate.

Now I see the POS Murkowski is endorsing Demoscats so it's obvious this isn't a serious candidate but a serious psychopath.

Scott caught it, but CNN failed to catch it.
Sink doesn't know the issues and was lost. She SUCKS! Say NO to the crooked Banker before she sinks us all.

Democrats have rigged the machines so that no matter how you vote the ballot comes out marked for the Democrats in California, and Navada. That is disgusting, and we have no idea how many people have already voted on a poisoned ballot. Until we begin jaiing thse criminals we will never have a free election.

The race is hardly unpredictable. Miller is going to win by a landslide. I lived in Alaska for 3 years and most Alaskans are convicted felons who cannot vote and the rest can't even spell Mehrkowski.

Did you not know about "Felons for Franken"? Felons vote now, an as far as the spellingg of Murkowski, they will waive the correct spelling, and accept any vote that has a name starting with "M" Democrats will never permit a legal election in this country again, because we never stopped them before.

In 2001, Sarah Palin drove from her Wasilla home, through the downtown streets of Anchorage, to a large home near the bluffs of muddy Cook Inlet. The home belonged to Bill Allen, one of the most influential businessmen and Republican donors in Alaska history. Allen ran the state's largest oil-contracting firm, the ominously named VECO Corp., which contracted with some of the biggest oil producers in the world.

Palin was wrapping up her last term as mayor of Wasilla. She had higher political aspirations. She wanted the second-most powerful job in Alaska: lieutenant governor. In those days, there was virtually only one road to the state capital, and it passed through Allen. A foul-mouthed oilman, a high-school drop out, the son of fruit pickers, Allen was one of those "good ol' boys" Palin touted taking on in Alaska when she gave her vice-presidential speech Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention.

Allen, then in his mid-60s, shaped Alaska politics through campaign contributions and sometimes flat-out bribes. He and his VECO executives and employees gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to both Republicans and Democrats -- lawmakers Allen believed would support the oil industry. He was so steeped in politics that he co-chaired the Alaska finance committee during the Bush-Cheney 2000 campaign.

A year later, a young small-town mayor was standing at his door.

Palin sat with Allen in his den and sipped wine, according to a former VECO employee who says he personally fetched the bottle of wine for the two. Why did Palin visit Allen that day? Palin spokesman Bill McAllister refuses to ask her. "This is a silly story and I'm not going to take any more time with this. Goodbye," he says on the phone.
