A bad omen for Lisa Murkowski

By Matt DeLong
Sen. Lisa Murkowski's (R-Alaska) write-in bid to hang on to her seat doesn't depend on people spelling her name correctly. But her campaign staff might want to hire a proofreader.


In case you missed it, in this image from her first campaign ad since she announced that she will stay in the race after Joe Miller won the GOP primary, her Web site URL is misspelled as The ad has been pulled.

I find this extremely funny. I wonder how many ballots will be marked 'Lisa Murkwski' come Election Day?

Murkowski is a numbskull of the first order, thinks that Senate seat is hers by line of royal succession.
A rational person would have said, darn, I need to think about why I lost and maybe start making plans to win the OTHER Senate seat on my own merits next time....I have tons of money...
Idiot. Down in flames, Lisa, and take the country with you. Moronette.

Alaskans chose Miller, he really does appear to be the better candidate, especially after Murkowski is proving to be extremely selfish, and possibly hurting all Alaskans.

Palin defeated Murkowski's father, now Murkowski will sabotage Palin's candidate at the cost of her party gaining the seat. If she scuttles Miller's campaign she will have exacted her revenge on Palin. If however, somehow, Murkowski wins (I'd bet against it at any odds) then Murkowski not only avenges her father's defeat by Palin, but now Murkowski can call for Palin's tea party support during her administration. Just like Palin is calling on Murkowski to step aside for the unity of the Party.

For Murkowski this is a scenario with 2 winning outcomes and only one losing outcome. The losing outcome for Murkowski being that Miller wins in Nov.

If Miller loses, Murkowski will forever be seen as a spiteful sore loser who screwed her party for personal revenge.

If Miller wins, Murkowski is not much better of with her party.

She really should leave this one go.

That's right. When you vote on Nov. 2nd, make sure you don't vote for anybody who's labeled a Democrat OR a Republican. If the Tea Party isn't on the ballot, make sure that you WRITE IN THE TEA PARTY on Nov. 2!

Lisa Murkowski is a RINO republican. There is NO difference between a RINO republican and a LIBERAL democrat. That's why things never change for the better no matter which party is in power. That's why the national debt keeps going higher and higher while the Government keeps getting bigger and bigger. The Tea Party's is cleaning out the rat's nest in the republican party and the public is paying attention. They are seeing REAL change ... and that's what they want.
