    Sen. Lisa Murkowski mounting write-in bid for Senate

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski mounting write-in bid for Senate JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski says she'll mount a write-in campaign in Alaska in an effort to hold onto her seat after last month's stunning Republican primary loss to Joe Miller.
    Murkowski made her announcement Friday evening at a rally in Anchorage while surrounded by supporters chanting: "Run, Lisa, Run!"

    Murkowski had gone back and forth on whether to re-enter the race since conceding the GOP primary to Miller on Aug. 31. She has said she entertained the possibility of a write-in campaign only after receiving an outpouring of encouragement from Alaskans.

    During the primary campaign, the Tea Party-supported Miller cast Murkowski as part of the problem in an out-of-control Washington.
    Clearly the Murkowski broad is going to put her personal agrandizement ahead of the interests of the Americans in Alaska by doing her best to help the Democrat scumbucket win the election. She not only has abolutely no chance of winning the election (she's not cute and cuddly looking like nice old Uncle Joey Leiberman, she looks like a post-menopausal angry dyke, very reminiscent of Janet Reno, with Hillary's shrillness on top.), she knows all this going in.

    This is exactly why We The People are disgusted with the entrenched party favorites.

    Well, after seeing what happened to Bennett in Utah by outside interests interfering in the election, I'm glad Murkowsky is still going to run as write in and apparently so are the people in Alaska. Apparently, they don't want to have to choose between voting for an extremist and a Democrat, they want to vote for someone who represents their interests, not the Koch's or Club for Growth or the far right nutjobs in the tea party.

    The standing joke in Utah is that Republicans were wearing Vote for Bennett T-shirts when they went in to the primary election and they came out wearing the Democrat's Vote for Granato T shirts because they were so disgusted with the extremists and outside influence taking over their local election.

    If the "outside interests" didn't vote in the election, then the "outside interests" didn't interfere.

    Do I recall your complaints when the Chinese Army gave money, lots of it, to Clinton's re-election campaign? Do I see you complaining about George Soros and his "interference" in current US elections?

    Bennett was dumped because he's too socialistic and the people of Utah are tired of that crap, like all real Americans are.

    Of course,when I talk about my opposition to "outside interests", I mentioned REAL aliens and foreigners. I don't object to people in Alaska helping Americans win electionsin Utah. You should try reading the Constituiton some time.

    But you find nothing to say about my mentioning of your fave's taking funds and thus directions from foreign enemies of the republic.

    No, the two situtations are not comparable.

    BTW, I think every real Amercan should hold their nose with an industrial strength clothes pin, register Democrat next year, and make sure that ass Messiah dude in the White House now is forced stand trial for his crimes against the United States by getting the Democrat nomination for 2012. Keeping the Red Queen out of the White House is the most important thing a real American can do. The Messiah will not win re-election in 2012.

    What a... scuzzball. I hope someone pulls her aside and points out that her Political Career is over now. Period, she'll never get backed for another office again.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    If I were still living in Alaska, I would be more than happy to write in Lisa's name on the ballot. She was a good senator despite kinda being shafted by the fact that her crooked father appointed her.

    I wouldn't be so sure of that. Alaska's politics often don't reflect the politics of the rest of the country. For one, their republicans are far more libertarian minded than the rest of the country's. For another, their democrats tend to be slightly less liberal.

    Who backs a selfish bitch sabotaging her opponent just cause she lost her election? Why back her, cause if she loses she might go all squirrelly and backstab you.

    Who exactly is she backstabbing? I mean, it's not like she hasn't been clear about Miller being an opponent. It's not like she pretended to be his friend with an endorsement and THEN went and ran against him.

    And in all honesty, a lot can happen to Miller between now and the election. Who's to say between Murkowski and the dem candidate, they can't pound him into irrelevance, leaving it wide open for her to win?

    I would write in her name if I were there. In a heartbeat. The devil you know versus the one you don't and all that.
