Murkowski tosses cold water on Palin comeback
Seattle PI ^ | 5/23/13 | Seattle PI

Posted on 05/23/2013 12:11:45 PM PDT by illiac

The streams emerging from beneath an Arctic glacier are several degrees warmer than the icy water Alaska’s Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski has tossed on a Tea Party group’s effort to draft former Gov. Sarah Palin as a U.S. Senate candidate in 2014.

Reviving one of Alaska’s great political feuds, Murkowski told The Hill newspaper in Washington, D.C.:

“I think there are a lot of outside interests that would like to see Sarah Palin in some form of elected office. Most in Alaska recognize our former governor is rally not involved in or engaged in the state anymore, that she’s moved to other interests. In order to represent the state, you’ve got to be in the state.”

Ah, the lying cheat surfaces. You represent nobody but yourself, Murkowski. A proud member of the McLame caucus.

And these liberal 'rinos' are no different than the ugly in our face liberals. Speaking of which there are a few lunatic Sarah haters that reside here on FR. Some need to pick other peoples noses as if they are pure as the wind driven snow.

Thank you for the Ping Army Air Corps.

Murcowski has been a long time Enemy of Sarah Ping!

I am not going to go to that link. Is it Murkowski’s seat Sarah would be going after?

If so, I will proudly send Sarah whatever money I can scrape together.

All of this “Palin for Senate” stuff is nonsense anyway. She’s an executive personality, not a collegial one. The Senate isn’t the best place for her if she wants a government role; her abilities are better suited for the executive branch.

Taken on its merits, Murkowski's observation is reasonable. How do you run for the Senate in Alaska while living in Arizona. Makes no sense, and AFAIK Palin herself has made no move to set up a run. Much ado about nothing.

Plenty of wet, white cold......sand(??) in Arizona?

Sarah Palin: One last blast of Alaska winter today, hopefully? This is what “Grad Blast” means in Alaska! We’ll move our graduation b-b-q indoors and watch the mini-blizzard from ’round the fireplace. (Global warming my gluteus maximus.) Congratulations to this year’s graduates all across America. Job well done. Now the real job begins.

Sarah got no help form the republicans when she was being sued out of office. One demRat sued her 19 times and lost all but it cost Sarah $millions which the state would not help with.

In all honesty, that seems more viable. Once McCain retires, she could make a run for that seat. It'd be a HUGE improvement.

While you are correct and she would have to move back there to run, she’s would not be a carpetbagger in the real sense of the word. I don’t think anybody would have any doubt about her being a real Alaskan.

Never ceases to get my blood boiling, the way the Republican Party sat by and did nothing while their own ‘08 VP candidate gets targeted by sleazoid Dem operatives in a deliberate attempt to force her into financial bankrupcy, when her church was torched, when her kids and family were calculatedly dragged through tabloid mud, when the media placed blame directly on her for the Tucson mass-murder...

All while this same damned Republican Party went on an all-out crusade to save the vile, corrupt Murkowski’s Senate seat after she lost in her primary election! Man, it burns me up, just thinking about it again!

She’d look really good taking over McCain’s seat.

Exactly, Sarah scares them deeply.

The MurCowski's are as dirty in Alaskan Politics as Harry Reid is in Nevada.

That is deep my FReinds, and when you face down that beast they are going to bit back.

Sarah has been bitten by the Mad Cow before but She Hasn't stopped turning them Gray(er) either.

She lives here in Wasilla most of the year, but, like many Alaskans, has a second residence in Arizona as a haven for the winter months.

***********************************************************************
I agree. If she doesn’t end up with the Presidency, she’d be excellent as a Treasury Secretary making sure the IRS was cleaned up, working with Congress to replace the current Income Tax laws and then managing the firing of 95% of current IRS employees. Leave enough working to close down shop and turn out the lights. Don’t worry folks, these federal employees can get other jobs for which they’re qualified—perhaps as telemarketers.
