    her father was a well known senator. If you only write the last name in, how can we be sure you are voting for the daughter?

    To me, the bigger issue is that the two parties have successfully made it so difficult to get a third party listed on the ballot, that they caused this fiasco.

    If she wins she wins.

    However were the Senate Majority leader I would make it clear to the lying no good dirty **** and that she would have no roll in anything but voting from then on.

    And I would announce this at a press conference and repeat that she's a lying no good dirty **** that cannot be trusted every chance I got from then on.

    I am personally sick and tired of liars on a personal, professional, and political, level.

    Political hyperbole is one thing but if make a promise you had better damn well keep that promise.

    Having no integrity is as bad as it gets and makes otherwise good people into no good dirty bastards who deserve no respect what ever.

    Washington is full of people who fit into this category, for being a damn lairs, and it goes to all of those who violate their oath of Office, as Obama does.

    So let Murkowski have the seat if she wins it, then make her life what it needs to be, "Miserable."

    It never ceases to entertain me how we look at the law, polling results and court decisions depending on whether or not they say what we need them to say.

    If the wording of the law is against our cause, we call it "a BS technicality" that shouldn't be used to circumvent "what's right."

    If the wording of the law is in favor of our cause, we say that we need to follow the law even if we don't like the law.

    If we're on the majority side of a contentious vote, we call it "the will of the people."

    If we're on the minority side of a contentious vote, we call it "mob rule."

    If a judge makes a ruling affirming our beliefs, they're a "good" judge.

    If a judge makes a ruling contradicting our beliefs, they're an "activist" judge.

    When someone goes free because of a improperly filed or executed search warrant, it was just a technicality, and "not guilty" doesn't mean "innocent."

    When someone goes down for hard time because their public defender is overloaded or incompetent, the government is waging war on the poor and minorities.

    Oh, and my absolute favorite: When a poll says 20% are against something, 60% aren't sure and 20% are for something, we sure do love to say that 80% "don't agree" with the other guy.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Regardless of the legality, it is still voter theft or throwing away votes. It is still "Miller telling voters **** you, your votes do not matter". I would think a conservative such as yourself would be against voter theft or throwing away votes, But I guess you are a republican first and a conservative 2nd.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    again, if they only write in the last name, how do we know who the vote is for?

    Are you aware she shares the name with her father, who remains a popular figure in politics.

    thw two party system - which she was a member of, did everything they could to stack the deck against write-in candidates.

    Also was given that impression, hence the passing out of the pamplets at voting stations showing the correct name spelling.

    Difficult to determine intent with last name only, should be prefixed with the initial "L" to confirm actual intent.

    That's right, we play by the rules of the game. Literacy test for blacks? Then literacy tests for blacks is what needs to occur, irregardless of whether or not you like literacy tests.

    I have a better idea. Just count the damn votes.

    Glad to hear you're behind the healthcare law now.

    Joe Miller is acting disgustingly. I honestly hope that Lisa Murkowski wins and can stand up for voter representation. The law is the law, Democracy is Democracy. People have a right to vote and to have their vote counted, even if they voted for an insane jihadist or a socialist dictator. If Murkowski wins than she wins, if Miller wins than that's that. However, these foolish law suits and trying to milk out loopholes to ensure his victory is quite unethical.

    wow, real mature

    it is impossible to divine a voter's intent without the diviner's own intention having some influence on his or her divination

    for a vote to be counted for a write in candidate, it should be just that, written in

    not divined
