Sen. Murkowski for Romney (Knock me over with a feather!)
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer ^ | December 2, 2011 | Joel Connelly

The Republicans’ shaky president frontrunner, ex-Gov. Mitt Romney, has won the endorsement of a GOP senator who took on the Tea Party movement and won in her home state last year.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, became the most prominent West Coast politician to endorse Romney, who lives much of the time near San Diego at the other end of the coast.

“Mitt Romney has had the lifelong experience needed to turn around our economy,” Murkowski said.

The endorsement increases chances that Murkowski’s fiercest rival in Alaska Republican circles, 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, will come out for ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich....

No, stupid assklown that couldn’t beat her in the general after he won the primary should’ve run a better campaign. He had it in his hand and he blew it.

Yes, we threw her entitled little princess a$$ out during the primary, so she ran independant and all the dems voted for her. She won by 1% as I recall.

Sadly, that would take Hillary-level testosterone, which our current Republican leadership sorely lacks.

As an Alaskan who did everything I could to get Joe Miller elected I can say you are underestimating our esteemed senator. She is loyal to her benefactors and in the end will throw her support behind obama. This woman and the Alaskan republican party was the final straw for me. I can’t abide with an R behind my name anymore.

This should be the "kiss of death" for Romney.

The R Party has been a huge disappointment for a long time.

We didn’t need more confirmation that Romney should not be the nominee, however, we just got it.

Myth will take whatever he can get.

Most people don’t pay too much attention to Alaska. Betcha 99.99% of the populus doesn’t know the Miller/Murkowski story.

Yeah, it’s apparent that this is one Party where drug use is pandemic.

I like your tag line, by the way.

That helped. As did the proclivity of Alaskans to follow the pork to its source.

Still, Miller could have won had he played his hand right. IMO.

Saw the topper of them all today in DE: A PA car with a bumper sticker “Republicans for Obama”.

The parking lot was a mess after I lost my lunch.
