Why am I not surprised! The Queen of crony capitalism and the politician with the body-language of a super used-car salesman.

With all Mitts bucks one would think he could pull in a few token conservatives.

It must come as a blow for Obama, as he was also angling for her endorsement.

An endorsement from Lisa “Primary? Who needs a Primary” Murkycowski endorses a rino, gee that means a lot.

Actually it does, just not in a good way.

Mitt should politely decline the endoresement. Murkowski is a zero in the GOP.

Imagine how the Senate would be different today had Sharron Angle, Joe Miller, Christine O’Donnell had made it.

Let’s see, Romney’s biggest problem is that conservatives worry that he is a RINO, so this will help him how?

Wow.

Now that's an endorsement that means something. At least it mean something to me. It tells me all about Romney.

He's a loser. Bye Bye!

This endorsement should certainly carry a lot of weight...Murkowski’s respect for the will of primary voters in her party is well known.
