Republicans Counting on Write-In Lisa Murkowski Over Joe Miller in Alaska (BS ALERT!!!)
ABC News ^ | October 31, 2010 | Jonathan Karl

Posted on 10/31/2010 10:13:29 AM PDT by Baladas

ABC's Jonathan Karl reports: A high-level GOP source tells me that party leaders have essentially given up on Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller and are now banking on a victory by write-in candidate Lisa Murkowski as the best bet for Republicans to keep the Alaska Senate seat.

Murkowski defied party leaders by running a write-in campaign after she lost the Republican primary last month. But with Miller's campaign faltering, the source tells me that Republican leaders are now worried that Democrat Scott McAdams has a shot of winning and that Murkowski may be the only way to stop him.

It's a remarkable turnaround for Murkowski. She was punished by party leaders last month -- unceremoniously stripped of her post in the Senate leadership -- when she refused to bow out of the Senate race and endorse Miller. But she has consistently said she is still a Republican and will caucus with the Republican party if she wins

ABC's contribution to the CBS plan to get rid of Joe Miller in a last-ditch effort to have Miller defeated? Late, too late.

How many people have to write in how many times the name Mercouski for her to win?

“The Republicans did not make this coming election on Tuesday a referendum on Obamacare and people like Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, and others in the Cocktail Party crowd have said they not only don’t want to defund and repeal Obamacare, but that they are going to bully the newly-elected conservative, Tea Party-backed GOP Congressmen and Senators so that it stays business as usual in the go-along-to-get-along ranks with all these lily-livered sissies who are terrified of rocking the boat and going to all-out-war with the Left.”

VERY interesting angle at

Murkwski will caucus with the ‘RATS because she is a commie ‘RAT.

How can the right-wing Leftists within the GOP be giving up on Miller when they never wanted him in the first place?

Rove has lost his way-—something’s not right about him these days. A little internal divine intervention may be necessary!

Actually, Rove debunked this ‘speculation’ since the Party is spending on Miller, not on Murk...

This is just another media attempt to manipulate voters, trying to make those who are still undecided not vote for Miller by depressing their enthusiasm. Everyone who does that twitter stuff and facebook out to be out there debunking this as just another ‘no longer relevant biased’ media trick!

The Senate race in Alaska is a battlepoint of old establishment DC RINO’s pitting against the new youngblood Tea Party. As a Texan next time Cornyn comes up for re-election I will work hard to support his primary opponent and hope it will be a good strong TEA Party conservative.
Out with ALL RINO’s——nothing but Dem lites.

In a Virginia Congressional District (?) there is a secondary financed candidate, Kenny Golden, who is mailing brochures (quite finished expensive ones) on how he is the conservative choice and Scott Rigell (R), the primary Republican running against the incumbent Glenn Bye (D), is to be rejected.

Kenny Golden, in small letters, is financed by the Democratic Party.

This is what is going on.

Elsewhere we have explained the psy-ops of the LEFT: take an ego-controlled person, like a Kenny Golden or a Barack Obama or, ala Hollywood style, a Brad Pitt or Julia Roberts, and give them public. Principles mean nothing to them as compared to their desire to be personally important and aggrandized; thus they can be used promiscuously.

"Come here boy, we're going to make you a star"

The MO of the LEFT. How obvious is it?

She's a RINO fer sure, but I really dont think she would caucus with the RATS (if she manages to pull this off). She is adamant that she will not.

This is more spin from the corrupt liberal media trying to frame/claim that Miller is a lost cause — to depress his supporters.

Coming from the All Barack Channel, and the Communist Broadcasting Service, are aiding and abetting Murcowski. The cow from Alaska that loves to suck on the teat of Obummer. Murcowski, must have asked Obummer for advice and he advised her to adopt Chicago Style Politics, and if she wins she will become like specter - a DumboCrat

The Murkowski Dynasty has owned the local media from the beginning ... smearing Miller and throwing any mud they can dig up or fabricate against the wall ... daily, relentlessly keeping their trumped up charges in the face of voters, all to avoid Murkowski having to debate the issues and discuss her abysmal and pathetically weak record of representing Alaska.

The Anchorage Daily News (ADN) aka " THE MCCLATCHY COMMIE DAILY' and local radio station KENI (650AM) and the RINO mgr Rick Reidel are so bought and paid for by Murkowski it's embarrassing.

Reidel has proven himself to be a complete butt-boy for Princess-Lisa.

The sad end result ... NONE of the relevant issues, so critical to our state and nation are being honestly discussed.

I do believe however that if ANYONE can persevere in the face of such political smear, Joe Miller IS the man.

I’m with you tflabo. Cornyn has shown his cooked noodle back bone in many ways. Not wanting to fund C. McDonnell, CT, Marco Rubio, FL, to name a couple. I’ll help his apponent. Cornyn is a political parasite, has been.

Yep, and murkowski promised Alaskans she would abide by their wishes if she lost the primary. So much for her word of honor. She’s a ME, Me, important ME, rino. She’ll vote for whoever makes her “feel” important at that moment.

If the GOP ends up with 49-50 Senate seats, watch Leeza MooCowsky to make all sorts of demand for Pork for her labor union & Native tribe allies. If the GOP doesn’t cave in to her demands, then watch the Dems make her an offer she can’t refuse.

Despite the recent polls showing Linda MerKowskier with 10 point leads, the RINO Witch still is a Write-In Candidate. Meaning there will be spoilage of write-in votes. I expect there will be at least 10% of the Lori MerCowskier vote to be throw out. The upcoming legal battle between MerCowksky and Miller will make the Franken vs Coleman recount battle look tame.
