You always jump out to such wild conclusions? When there's a dispute, the courts decide.

Just like in California with Prop8 & DADT, and Massachusetts with DOMA, and Iowa & Connecticut with marriage equality, and Minnesota Senate race in '08. There's a dispute over the constitutionality, so the courts decide.

See, when judges rule AGAINST the conservative, they're called "activist judges", but when they rule FOR the conservatives, they're "upholding the constitution".

Bottom line- more people in Alaska voted for Murkowski than for Miller, and now he's trying to find an "activist judge" to overturn the "will of the people".

HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!

When Obama ran for state Senate in Illinois, he had many of his opponents petition signatures disqualified because they printed their signature instead of writing it in cursive.

A technicality, yes.

Obama's comment, "To my mind, we were just abiding by the rules that had been set up."

Imagine how things could be different today if Obama had abided by "the will of the people."

This is almost funny. The T-bagger fools who can't spell Obama want to make sure Murkowski voters spelled it right.

What a moron. Activist judges are those making up their own rules instead of following the constitution and precedent.

Who cares what the outcome is here. It's still a Republican and not a Jackasscrat.

HILARIOUS!!!!!! Ha Ha Ha!

Like I said, when you disagree with the ruling, it's an "activist judge". Typical hypocrisy from the teabagging conservative GOPasaurs.

And technically Murkowski (the one who got the most votes) will be an Independent. I wonder who she'll caucus with? I do know she's already said she'll vote with the Dems to repeal DADT, just to stick it to Miller and his fellow teabaggers.

I'm liking Murkowski more every day.

According to "FIRST READ" from NBC news dated Nov.3,2010( firstread.msnbc.msn.com )of ten Senate candidates that ran endorsed by a Tea party organization in their states 5 won-Toomey(PA),Paul(KY),Rubio( FL),Johnson(WI),Lee(UT)-the losers were:O*Donnell(DE),Angle(NV),R aese(WV),and Buck(CO)...and of 122 that ran for the House only 40 won...of course AK is yet to be decided...my personal preference is as long as a liberal democrat loses I*m happy-and that will be the case in AK...the story regarding the federal judge kicking this back into the AK courts states that Miller is behind by 10,000 votes plus and in a state that has cast only 192,000 votes that is a deficit of a little more than 5%...I dont see Miller overcoming that many votes in this state and I*m content to have a republican Murkowski caucusing with the other republicans in the next Congress...

Remember your words when the so called tea baggers do the same thing at some point. They will learn the ways of the entrenched fungus known as progressives,RINO'S and NEO CONS that have helped to bring America to the brink of collapse.

Miller must have a awful lot of baggage if a mediocrity like murkowski could beat him with a write-in campaign.

petition signatures are NOT the same as a ballot. Apples and oranges.
