    I have only one statement to make here:

    Joe Miller - You are an ass and a douche bag of the lowest calibre. And you will not succeed in circumventing the will of the voters, who probably already knew what kind of a dishonest bitch you really are, hence the reason they voted for your opponent.

    OK, make that 2 statements.

    Article is here.
    both are douchebags
    he for doing that-she for not respecting the primary results and being a sore loser

    Neither one is little miss purity

    Before you get too excited... it ain't over yet.

    Murkowski camp growing more confident of victory

    there are still thousands other votes yet to be tallied (at least 8,800 absentee votes plus more to be tallied from overseas) which could skew in Miller's favor, and if the difference between Miller and Murkowski is 1,246 or fewer votes -- 0.5 percent of all votes cast -- the election outcome will be close enough to trigger a state-funded recount. Not to mention Miller has launched a series of legal questions about whether less-than-perfect votes -- those with misspellings -- should count. He says no, Murkwoski says yes, and the court fight could become much higher stakes if it is challenged ballots on which the election will be decided. Also, more recently Miller has lodged allegations of possible fraud, and he's seeking voter registries to verify that the number of votes from certain areas didn't exceed the number of legally registered voters and to assess whether voters filled out their own ballots.

    I'm all for playing by the rules, but the idea of Miller using the law to club voters over the head is outrageous. This isn't about him or Murkowski, it's about voters. This isn't quite as chickensh*t as what Algore did in Florida (at least Miller is using the rules...), but it's up there in that neighborhood.

    The courts aren't going to decide the winner. The courts are going to ensure that the will of the voters on election day is respected. There is a CLEAR difference between the two...

    Uhh, the results of the general election pretty conclusively prove that she was just as viable a candidate. You're calling what appears to be the winner a "sore loser." Bull**** legal challenges about write-ins be damned, it's pretty clear that more of the Alaskan voters support Murkowski.

    Respect the primary? The primary, in this case, got it wrong.

    Wow, a typical politician attempting to screw over a typical politician. Who'd a thunk it.

    Gotta love the state of politics in this day and age.

    I agree, if this situation was in reverse you'd have them doing exactly what the other is doing.
