Lisa Murkowski: I will caucus with GOP
Politico ^ | 11/1/10 | SHIRA TOEPLITZ

Posted on 11/01/2010 6:20:22 PM PDT by coaltrain

Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski told POLITICO unequivocally that she plans to caucus with the Republican Party if she wins her write-in campaign Tuesday.

“I have caucused with the Republicans in the past, I will be caucusing with the Republicans when I go back in January,” said Murkowski in a phone interview, responding to recent news reports speculating whether she’d buck the party, and comments Murkowski made over the weekend saying that if elected, she would represent Alaska before the Republican Party.

I believe she will caucus with the GOP should she pull off the upset - which is highly unlikely. This race isn’t really as much of consequence as DE, CA, WA, and CT.

Since she said she would accept the will of the voters before losing the primary — and then changed her mind to start the write in campaign — only a true idiot would believe her this time.

Frankly ... Murky won't matter after tomorrow. She'll be caucusing with lobbyists who will no longer need to hang out with her since she'll have no power to sell.

She’ll be caucusing with her own personal rats in her driveway when she has to haul her own trash dumpster down to the street.

I heard her with my own ears within the last 24 hours say to some lady interviewer on Fox (Greta?) that she “believed” she would support the republicans.

When pressed she really hedged by saying something about her new constituency voting for her being a combination of moderates and liberals and blah and blah.

She is not trustworthy at all.

Talk about a jilted lover throwing one last Hail Mary to get some affection........Hey, Lisa. Take it from a guy who learned the hard way. A few times. When it ain't there no more, it ain't there no more.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

This is the Eskimo alphabet.

.

I'd ask how much cash she's handing out like Halloween candy, but consider the union, oil, lobbyist support and maybe the Eskimos will learn 'Lisa M.' after about 5 minutes of training. THE FIX is alive and well in both parties.

If she pulls a miracle, the Republicans had better have her caucus in the port-o-let. Then, she needs to have every minute of her day dealing with ethics charges. Anyone who is familiar with the laws that the left used to harass Sarah Palin with, I would love to have a similar effort directed toward this sore loser.

Just like Gore, she lost but has no dignity, it’s all about her no matter how much damage she causes the rest of the country. That pasty, fat ass Algore who is so white that his skin is blue, damaged us more than the towel head’s did on 9-11 due to his creating the belief that he won Florida. He lost, he knows it, he should have shut up and accepted it, just like this procreating female dog.

DO NOT WANT!

Lisa has “proven” her “loyalty” by staying in this race when she was defeated in the primary fair and square. She cares more about her personal political interests than that of the party.

I’d honestly rather lose to the Dem than see that hag win. But I think either way it isn’t going to matter as Joe Miller is going to take it home for us.

Facts prove that Al lost, even the MSM concluded that. Whenever you see or hear the false argument about Gore, point to the USA Today and Miami Herald investigations. They spent all that money re-counting all of the ballots in hope of being able to declare Gore the winner. They just could not deny the truth. Also, remind the idiots about the military ballots that were not counted...that is huge. Gore lost, and the MSM was complicit in dragging the government deeper into the sewer.

May the force be with you.

Not only were many military ballots not counted, but a lot of "extra" Algore votes were counted.

Recall that Dade County started a re-count, went halfway with it and, then, after discovering 200 or-so more votes for Algore, stopped the re-count.

The reason why they stopped the re-count was that they had re-counted all the Democrat precincts and those remaining were Republican.

It is the nature of punch-card ballots that, as they are re-counted, they will continue to register more votes -- as the chads get knocked off by all the handling. These "new" votes will tend to be in the same proportion as the votes already counted. So, if you re-count Democrat precincts, the Democrat will gain votes. The Dade County Board of Elections knew that, if they counted the Republican precincts, Bush would gain back most -- if not all -- of the "new" votes that were tallied for Gore. So, they stopped the re-count.

Bad enough. But then the bitch on the Florida Supreme Court demanded that the extra Dade votes be counted in the official total -- even though the county's re-count hadn't been completed. She was either acting out of gross ignorance -- or the sleaziest of partisanship.

Those Dade County votes are still in the official total...

I believe that “sleaziest” is probably correct. When you are honest and believe that most others around you are honest, like most normal people, you dismiss the probability of outright fraud. You are not a liar, you do not engage in fraudulent acts, so you assume most people operate the same way as you. The problem is we are not dealing with honorable people who can be trusted. Unfortunately, our best qualities are used as weapons against us. Just like the mooslimbs, the libs use our values and natural law to undermine us. Character, honor and natural law work, but only among honorable people. There needs to be a reckoning where we clean out the garbage once and for all. We allowed them to creep in due to political correctness. We need to never allow it again.
