Joe Miller mobilizes U.S. Army; Sarah Palin gets keystoned; McMillan leads by a whisker

It's hard to say what's worse in this story for Joe Miller, the Republican Senate nominee in Alaska: That his private security force handcuffed a journalist who tried to ask Miller questions? That Miller is using active-duty U.S. troops in his security detail without the knowledge of their chain-of-command? Or that he insists on having a security detail in the first place?

Well, you can see West Virginia from parts of Pennsylvania.

Chief Mama Grizzly Sarah Palin fired off a tweet announcing: ""Pennsylvania:makes sense 2 send GOP 2 DC 2 avoid PA economic disaster that will occur under Obama/Pelosi Cap & Tax scheme; workers need Raese."
Maybe, but John Raese is the GOP Senate candidate in neighboring West Virginia. Mountaineers: Pls refudiate.

We hereby extend our endorsement in the New York gubernatorial contest to Jimmy McMillan of the Rent-is-Too-Damn-High Party. McMillan, the clear winner of Monday night's debate, gets our support both for his decision to debate in gloves ("I know I'm not going to be able to breathe if I take them off") and for his grooming. His temple-to-temple, W-shaped mustache has already won him the endorsement of the American Mustache Institute.

Miller has mobilized the army so much that he hired off duty soldiers to act as goons and arrests journalist asking questions. Welcome to the real face of the Republican party.

OK, I'm willing to forgive a couple of our soldiers (thank you for your service) for handcuffing an obnoxious lamestream reporter or two.

And I don't expect Sarah to get everything right. Let's call her mistake a "tweetable moment."

But that hypocrite, Jimmy McMillan, is a TRITDHINO.

According to the New York Times, "Mr. McMillan said in an interview on Tuesday that for at least the last decade, he had lived rent free."

It's inevitable that Mr. McMillan will soon pull an Arlen Specter and join The Rent Is Too Damn Low Party. He can't be trusted. I demand that you withdraw your endorsement!
