Sarah Palin indulged whatever grudge she has with Senator Murkowski, and backed the unelectable Joe Miller for the Republican nomination.
The people of Alaska have selected Senator Murkowski to be their Senator again, for the next six years. Congratulations to the Senator on her reelection. It was a difficult road for her, but she was equal to the challenge.
There's no quit in Lisa Murkowski. You can't say that about Sarah Palin...
Whether you think it is to your advantage or not you should be worried about things like this. It is not hard to believe that this woman is another shill that has other masters. The people in Alaska are like the people everywhere can be. Foolish. You still keep thinking Democrat and Republican. Already food prices are starting to rise because of the massive printing of money. If you are so concerned about people as Democrats always spout, then think what is going to happen to all of the people on fixed incomes or income that rises very slowly. The inflation tax is arriving. And it will be high. The poverty rate will soar.

Wow, I've never supported a Rethuglican before, but I have to say- LISA, YOU GO GIRL!

Tell that shrimpdicked Joe Miller who's boss- beat his arrogant fascist ass as a write in- how huiliating for him, and Saracuda for that matter.

Wow, Lisa, two for one- liberals got your back!

Being a write-in candidate is not a problem when Daddy's corrupt friends have boxes of votes ready to ship out in case the Princess needs them. I can tell you right now without looking at another vote she won. She stole it, but she won.

How can someone so stupid be such an expert on so many subjects?

No corruption needed, here:

1) Primary turnout is ALWAYS lower, and consists of die-hards (more conservative)
2) More moderate Repubs vote in the general, and many Dems who hate Miller support her because she's much more moderate.
3) Normal Americans are leery of Tea Baggers, as the Senate elections spell out very clearly.
4) EVERYONE is sick of the quitter Sarah Palin and her phony platitudes, especially the people she quit on so she could make money and avoid legal hassles.

This one's GOTTA hurt Sarah. You just know it does. First write-in victory in over 50+ years? Against her hand-picked guy in her home state? OUCH.

Yet some of you dummies probably think she can still win the WH, don't you?

Murkowski is a whiney-azz bag and a self-deluded, self-aggrandizing fool.. If the people of Alaska keep this idiot in, I'm sorry to say, they deserve what they get.. Sort of like Nevada keeping that old tired azz Reid in. what were those idiots thinking? Oh, I forgot- they weren't. lol Murkowski is a big cry-baby who never learned the word no. Daddy gave her the job and like so many of the dumb D.c. crowd, she apparently thinks she will keep it no matter what. Shrugs. Maybe she will and she can end the charade that she's a Republican.

Mr Miller won the primary, and earned the right to have his name on the ballot as the Republican nominee. He received everything he was entitled to.
Chances are voter turnout will prove much higher in November than it was for the primary. Those folks saw Mr Miller's name as the Republican, yet chose to vote for someone else. It's all proper & legal, and a lot more bother than it would have been had Murkowski supporters showed up for the primary. Nevertheless, the people have spoken.
He single-handedly sabotaged his own campaign with his loony statements about the Wall that separated East Germany from West Germany, for example, as well as his flaky behavior. He is by far his own worst enemy, and if you are disappointed in his defeat, then you need to question Palin's judgment for endorsing him in the first place. He clearly stated his intention of discontinuing the federal payment Alaska currently enjoys. Actually, the good people of Alaska dodged a bullet with his defeat.

Billy, that is not true. It would feel good if the tea party candidate won. But this is the reason the tea party started in the first place. With politicians like this for our representatives. Now we must proceed to PHASE 2 in 2012.

she saw the phony conservatism that infested the GOP and jumped. i applaud her for that and for showing that true conservatives out there can run and win without being tied to the tainted GOP brand.
