no you all act more like liberals with your want of growing of the federal government and the fact that palin raised taxes. you should just jump over to the democrat side and call yourselve blue dog democrats. that way the GOP can purge itself of you phony conservatives and racist Tea Party members and return the GOP back to the party of true conservatives such as Reagan and Lincoln.

You have a lower opinion of Democrats than I do.

Because whatever their faults are they can certainly tell the difference between a Blue Dog Democrat and a conservative Republican.

I certainly agree. I'm sure the blue dog democrats will gladly accept you and palin with your liberal views on taxes and the power of government.

...although...the blue dog democrats tend not to favor raising taxes (like Palin did)....and are wary about growing government (which you favor since you believe it is the government's job to venture into the oil and gas indusry and plug the hole). so..hmm...interesting..haha. you and palin may actually be too left and liberal even for the blue dog democrats. LOL!

Lisa will bring down the senatorial election - no Republicans will win! She is giving the election to the Democrats. BIG MISTAKE- She should stop being a poor loser and also stop being like her Father. Unbelievable! I truly thought she had more sense! The Republicans should talk to her and tell her to stop.I called her office and left a message for her. Everyone should pickup the phone, call to give her their opinions now. It is wrong!

She does.

But RINO's like Murkowski do not go to Washington you help the public.

They go there to help themselves.

Woof, This post is to Mac-7 and Maddog2008. I know you guys are frustrated by the two crazy flies that are buzzing around here. Remember, the reason they can't debate facts or logic is they don't possess the intellect. All they know how to do is schoolyard "nanner, nanner, nanner". Replying to them is like debating a pile of manure. Logic won't decrease the odor. The only way to decrease the odor is to walk away.
The subject of this thread is Murkowski's write in campaign. These clowns are delighted with it because they think it might save the Democrat in Alaska. It won't. Joe Miller will win by 10% just like Rubio in Florida. Republicans have several things that Democrats lack. Among these are brains, ethics and the ability not to be fooled twice.

Doesn't matter at all it they're qualified or not.
Look at poor Sarah what they did to her having her run for vice president. They made that poor girl look the fool before the whole nation. Seeing Russia.
from her house.
You know what's funny is Sarah isn't even in a position to have any direct affect on our lives, yet the extreme left mock her relentlessly. Then you contrast that with a complete idiot like Nancy Pelosi , who can and does affect our daily lives directly, but we here no mocking or insults from the professional extreme left, because she is their idiot. "we have to vote for and pass the healthcare bill to find out what is actually in the legislation", and she is speaker of the house.

This is what you get from the professional entitled political class. It's all about her, not the people or the party. This is what having no class at all looks like.

Mocking relentlessly? The sad part is that what I said is the absolute truth. Sarah Palin was not ready to be Governor of any state let alone Vice-President of the United States , a heartbeat away from the Presidency. She is an admitted soccer mom with an extra dose of ambition. Like her protege Christine.
It's well and good to make jokes about either party but the thought of either one of those very nice looking ladies being in any way "in charge" of this country is not even funny. Does indicate just how screwed up this country has become.
Mothers don't raise kids anymore they play politics and the children raise themselves. Just gets crazier all the time. Hollywood in Washington.
Who was Miss America last year? I wonder what she's doing now. Maybe we can make a vice-president out of her. Get her a few spots on Fox and let her visit with Sarah for a while. She could run in 2012. You go girl!

truth hurts doesn't it Le Jimbo. deny all you want. facts are facts.
How can I deny the facts all you did is show how brilliant Palin was.........

As a new governor in 2007, Mrs. Palin stepped in to address the fiscal crisis and restore accountability. Working with Democrats and Republicans alike, she chose a 25% profits tax. But in lean years the state reverts to a 10% gross revenue tax on legacy fields that do not require massive continuing inputs of new capital.

Relative to the old system, Mrs. Palin's plan -- called "Alaska's Clear and Equitable Share" (ACES)-- improves incentives for developing new resources. It ensures the state does well in boom times -- as it is doing now -- when oil prices are high. But it also hedges against low prices in the future by ensuring that oil companies exposed to commodity price swings don't face a crushing tax burden when commodity prices fall.

Her plan includes an escalator clause that gives the state a larger share of revenues when oil prices rise. This is common to production-sharing agreements all over the world.

You loons are a hoot, you might want to read before lying again.

Obama admin uses private tax info to target opponents? SHADES OF HILLARY AND THE FBI FILES.
