Skip to comments.Murkowski tosses cold water on Palin comeback

The streams emerging from beneath an Arctic glacier are several degrees warmer than the icy water Alaskas Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski has tossed on a Tea Party groups effort to draft former Gov. Sarah Palin as a U.S. Senate candidate in 2014.
Reviving one of Alaskas 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 shes moved to other interests. In order to represent the state, youve 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.
Boy she really hates Sarah for tosser her corrupt, nepotistic dad out of office!
Murkey is a real piece of work.
I think there are a lot of outside interests that would like to see Sarah Palin in some form of elected office.
Well Murk got at least one thing correct.
I think Lisa still is harboring some haterade since Sarah got rid of her corrupt lying Daddy..awwwwwwwww poor Lisa..get over it, your Dad sucked
Murcowski has been a long time Enemy of Sarah Ping!
Hell, all the Murcowskis have been long time enemies of anyone wanting to clean up the truly vile Corruption in Alaska.
....or a crooked daddy who can give you the senator spot when he’s finished with it. Alaska ain’t much if they let such scum as the Murkowskis clan represent them.
Who died and made Murkowski the election god of the north?
I am no fan of Murkowski, but isn’t she bringing up a valid point about Palin’s residency? She’s been living in Arizona for a couple years, hasn’t she?
A. This witch knows nothing
B. Sarah should run for President
Sarah should run for office in Arizona, anyway. I can think of a couple of US Senators here who need replacing...
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.
In order to represent the state you’ve got to be in the state? Really? Like Hillary was such a big part of New York before she became its senator?
A little photo editing is always needed to give Murky a "smile."
When one has to resort to sleight of hand to win an election one has to wonder how creidble such a person’s advice could possibly be.
Don’t post those Palin pics in here lest you cause evil thoughts to arise...: )
That busted me out laughing.
WTH does she know where Gov Palin is or is not spending the bulk of her time???
That is just plain horrifying.
Palin for Senate, but not for president.
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! Well move our graduation b-b-q indoors and watch the mini-blizzard from round the fireplace. (Global warming my gluteus maximus.) Congratulations to this years graduates all across America. Job well done. Now the real job begins.
Yes... she is. ;-)
Exactly! She has zero, zip, nada credibility and Sarah Palin would be a threat to the Kow.
email this pic to your guy friends .. wait 20 minutes and then email them a question ...
What color was Sarah's hat?
Not 1 in 20 will know.
In all honesty, that seems more viable. Once McCain retires, she could make a run for that seat. It'd be a HUGE improvement.
“Taken on its merits, Murkowski’s observation is reasonable. How do you run for the Senate in Alaska while living in Arizona.”
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.
We pull better looking bottom feeders out of the deep end of Lake Martin...
Todd always has a smile on his face.
Murkugly lives in DC and dances with the aristocrats.
Sarah has friends, family and roots in Alaska. She will always have Alaska in her heart and mind.
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!
nevertheless....Sarah Palin is now an Arizona resident, so far as I know.
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.
But Hillary Clinton was deeply involved and engaged in New York before she moved there to run for the Senate...
Good golly! I thought at your first post... ‘surely that’s photoshopped! that’s hideous!’
Then you posted the unedited original. Good %&$%, man... it’s worse!
Thank you for the eyewash!
Who? Oh, yeah.... Her.
Well, have a care.
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.
“....Palin....Shes an executive personality, not a collegial one. The Senate isnt the best place for her if she wants a government role; her abilities are better suited for the executive branch.
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.
