JUNEAU -- Republican U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski says she doesn't think Sarah Palin has the leadership qualities to be president, nor the "intellectual curiosity" needed to make good policy.
Murkowski also told Katie Couric of the "CBS Evening News" that she doesn't think Palin enjoyed governing.

Wow. That is low even for her. The reason I say that is because she said it to Katie Couric who was one of people who destroyed Sarah in 2008.
Murkowski is TOAST next time around. Hopefully, God willing, Joe Miller can prove the voter fraud that put the whiner/sore loser in again.

She’s not a skallywag back bench witless bar hag whose days of whenching are now a distant memory like the whistle of a train off in the distance.
And so speaketh a woman who would be barely known if she hadn’t been greatly affected by one Sarah Palin.
Joe Miller. Alaska Senator in 2016! We should start this now.
Obviously she has issues with the fact that Palin defeated her dad and endorsed someone to run against her own seat.
Ever see a midget try and stop a 2 mile long freight train barreling down the tracks at full speed? That’s Lisa trying to sabotage Sarah.
Its quite unfortunate to have to endure having murky in the Senate during half of Palin’s admin.
Of all her negatives, Mrs. Palin does NOT lack leadership.
Murkowski is on a suicide run with this line of stated thinking.
Begich’s seat is up in 2014.
Well good, at least no one saw this crap.
I am not aware of any reason Lisa Murkowski is a guiding light on who would be a good president.
Plus she is Palin’s enemy. Duh.
Did Katie ask Lisa how she liked it when Sarah took her Dad’s job?
Didn’t think so.
I loathe Murkowski for how she handled her loss in the primary. It is unforgivable.
As for Palin, you know how I feel. Don’t need Lisa telling me anything.
Why did Alaska reelect this RINO?
Now, I've never been to Alaska, nor know anyone from there, but if so many of them are saying (adamantly!) that they do not like Palin, well . . . I just guess we're not seeing what they are. After all, they're much closer to what's going on than we are here in the lower 48.
Just as those who only watch the alphabet networks for their news get a skewed view of the world, it is possible that we're getting a skewed view of Palin and Murkowski. Now if Murki is a RINO, then she has to go. But what really is going on up there in Alaska?
Interesting statement, from someone who doesn’t have the philosophy to be a Republican.
Miller by all rights can still win THIS time....lets pray....
Interesting statement from a member of a branch of government that typically is regarded as lacking just those qualities with regard Presidential candidacy. The American people in their collective wisdom, generally don’t elect senators to the highest executive branch the country offers. That distinction would belong to Governors, a position that Sarah Palin has filled, while Murkowski hasn’t, so as Bette Midler said to George Costanza on Seinfeld, get some talent, then you can shoot your mouth off...
Murkowski is a skank.
You get a kick out of that?
we do know that many people voted for Miller....we do know that there was shenanigans in the villages and that federal contratrators were preaching to the union thugs ......
The other implication is that Lisa feels confident that she has the votes.
I’m disappointed in Alaskans
Pork and lots of it.
Murkowski lacks leadership to be Senator, but she’s getting elected anyway.
Sarah Palin is obviously the strongest and most capable leader we’ve seen since Ronald Reagan.
Didn’t see it but if Scatty Cowlick was sweet on the Murk then that is proof positive that the Murk is a Lib/socialist.
This is a catfight consisting of a kitten attempting to bring down a tigress.
Don’t worry about the ADN posts. They pretty much filter any conservatives from posting there. If you look at most articles it will say something like “30 comments” but usually only half or so are visible. If you’re a conservative they let fill out a comment but it’s never visible to anyone. It’s strictly the Envirowacko-CaliSeattle crowd. None of them are Real Alaskans.
I suspect it’s the usual silent majority.
Most of the media coverage of Palin has been negative. She was wildly popular in her state with some of (if not) the highest approval ratings in the country for a sitting Governor. Yet, the MSM and Alaskan subsidiaries of the MSM all of a sudden turned up all kinds of people with an axe to grind against her when McCain selected her.
We even heard from the Wasilla librarian (think this is right) for God’s sake! The woman had an axe to grind over some budget cut that Mayor Palin made and all of sudden she is all over the prime time news griping about Palin. This from a media that never interviewed a single tenant of the housing development that Obama “organized for” and his crook buddy/slum lord Tony Rezko managed and operated!!!!!
Murky brought home the bacon just like daddy did and that counts for alot in a state that is so incredibly dependent on Uncle Sam. I can’t speak for Alaskans but I suspect many of them are tired of the circus up there.
She should go into hiding,,, before someone drops a house on her too!
Just as those who only watch the alphabet networks for their news get a skewed view of the world, it is possible that we’re getting a skewed view of Palin and Murkowski. Now if Murki is a RINO, then she has to go. But what really is going on up there in Alaska?
Didn’t Sarah have an 80% approval BEFORE she got nominated for VP?
If so, then it might be a 24/7/365 smear campaign that’s driven Sarah’s popularity into the ground.
And what kind of leadership does Murkowski present. She is a sleazy elitist.
This is not surprising. Alaska politics is often personal - I know, since I was a political reporter for the media up here for many years. You need to remember that Sarah completely blew Lisa’s daddy out of the water in a gubernatorial election not long ago, and Lisa hasn’t forgotten that. Neither has Sarah, which accounts for the strong Joe Miller endorsement.
Sarah has always worked outside the party establishment. She’s still doing it. Let Lisa yip yip yip all she wants. One day she may have to call her rival “Madame President.”
When was the last time the Democrats fielded a presidential president? I suppose you could argue LBJ or JFK, but only because the mediots did a great job of hiding their foibles.
So, maybe Truman? Even he laughed at the idea that there were Communists buried deep within his administration, even though Venona proved otherwise. Please, when was the last truly presidential democrat president?
Sarah Palin was the most popular Governor in America, in 2007 The Weekly Standard wrote that Governor Palin was probably the most popular official in America, her approval ratings reached as high as 93%.
With the rinos like McConnell she has nothing to fear. We need to get DeMint more people so that we can start to marginalize her and her ilk.
The only way to get rid of them is to starve them of any resources through the budgeting process. The incoming, and current conservatives, in the House have to start coordinating with Senate conservatives to run these backstabber’s out. Let them set up their own third party.
The thing is...Murkowski is too unbalanced to be a Senator!
Maybe unhinged is the correct word to describe this sore loser!
Noobs and Trolls Mood Warning:
Vein-popping venom commencing in progress.....
“....she doesn’t think Palin enjoyed governing.”
Palin governed beautifully. She fought against republicans and democrats who were corrupt in her state. She saved Alaska millions by quitting the office of governor because she (Palin) was under CONSTANT assault by “progressives” and their frivolous lawsuits. Progressives KNEW she was a threat to their agenda. Filing frivolous lawsuits was their way of TRYING to stop her. (it didn’t work.)
Lisa is only interested in herself, but, also a useful idiot for the rinos....and the RINOS will pay for their treason, eventually—sooner than later. They STILL don’t know how angry voters are. We’re prepped for 2012. They think they’re safe, now. Silly RINOs.
Sore loser Murkowski does not have the moral standing to be in judgement of others.
Mirkowzky is the real troll, and you are the billy goats.
Murkowski is not the one trolling here and mocking freerepublic, that would be you that recently signed up to do that.
Funny, I don’t see any anger, just comments and conversation. Perhaps you came here for the wrong reason?
I was just coming back to do that.
