Joe Miller tweets about house-hunting in D.C., then deletes it
A couple new polls suggest that Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) could actually beat Joe Miller and keep her Senate seat. But the tea party favorite who took Murkowski down in the Republican primary seems to be feeling good about his chances.
"Think I'll do some house hunting while I'm in DC," he tweeted. He added that he also needed to pick out "some office furniture" and a "name plaque for the door," and thanked his "future colleagues" for their warm welcome. Murkowski's campaign quickly emailed out a screengrab-- with the headline 'HUBRIS."
Not nearly as scandalous as Miller's tweet comparing a third-party Murkowski bid to prostitution. But like that post, these confident missives were deleted from his account. Of course, this quote from Dwight D. Eisenhower is still there: "Pessimism never won any battle."
