Palin Smacks Down Lisa Murkowski (Once Again)

In a satirical piece, Alaskan radio-host Dan Fagan mocked Lisa Murkowski for forcing her way into the race against Joe Miller as a write-in candidate.

In addition, Fagan and many others are awaiting a ruling from the Alaskan Supreme Court which involves whether or not polling stations must hand out lists of write-in candidates, something they allegedly had not been forced to do in about 50 years.

Being the sore loser she is, Murkowski’s corporate-funded campaign threatened Fagan’s radio station with a lawsuit and sadly, Mr. Fagan lost his job.

Palin tonight asked Lisa if she’d be so bold as to use legal action to shut down her Facebook page for writing the message she wrote to Murkowski tonight:

Individuals like Dan Fagan have a fundamental right to speak their minds without threats from the incumbent Senator from Alaska. It is hard to find a constitutional right Americans cherish more than the right to free speech. This was a right Joe Miller, as a decorated combat veteran – a tank commander tested in battle, was willing to die to defend. Dan Fagan has not always agreed with me, but I will gladly defend his right to speak freely on his radio show, which he has often used to criticize me. In fact, Fagan has actually used his radio show to attack and insult me, my husband, my children, and my family in just about every way possible. He was especially insulting to my son, who left for a war zone to defend Fagan’s right to attack our family. But when I was his governor, I never would have dreamed of threatening his right to free speech. I support him in this fight because this D.C. Beltway thuggery, as exemplified by Lisa Murkowski’s latest threat, is ruining our country. The powers that be want ordinary Americans to sit down and shut up and let the ruling class ride us right off the debt cliff we’re heading towards with Obama, Pelosi, and Reid steering the nation’s car. We can’t let them. Now is the time to put aside our past differences and stand up to the establishment powers. 

This whole episode confirms again why we need to elect Joe Miller. Lisa, you can sue me if you want (you won’t be the first). But I will not be intimidated from speaking my mind. Your intimidation just empowered us liberty-loving Alaskans. Are you really that out of touch?

– Sarah Palin 

Much like the Democrats’ latest attack on Christine O’Donnell which has failed miserably (today a new poll shows that Coons has lost half of his lead), I believe this will only help Miller and further discourage voters from these arrogant tricks of such establishment politicians.

Don’t be too surprised Tuesday night for possible upsets in Delaware and Alaska.

Endorsement From The Deceased

I could be totally off-base on this one, but I consider this development in the Alaska Senate race sick and twisted.

Incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski is set to air a television ad this week featuring a video endorsement by the late Sen. Ted Stevens, who filmed the clip shortly before his death in a plane crash earlier this year.Murkowski, who launched a write-in campaign after losing the Aug. 24 primary to Tea Party-supported attorney Joe Miller, was originally slated to air the footage this summer but pulled the ads after the legendary 40-year Senate veteran’s death.

Stevens’ daughter, Sue Covich, not only approved of this twisted campaign ad, but also appears in the ad.  I don’t care if the family approves of this morbid use of the dead for political gain.  Consider the fact that Stevens’ endorsement came before the GOP primary was decided.  He endorsed Murkowski to be the GOP nominee.

Now Murkowski has mounted this write-in campaign like a spoiled 4th-grader who can’t deal with reality.  Would Stevens have supported this juvenile effort at the possible expense of the rightful GOP nominee (Joe Miller)?  We can’t know for sure.  But Murkowski and Covich pretend to make that assumption for the deceased.

I can’t help but to think that there are Alaska voters who, like me, will find this repulsive and offensive.  I was never a huge Stevens fan though I did respect him as one of the GOP’s elder statesmen.  I can’t say for sure that Ted Stevens would do the correct thing by supporting the GOP nominee (although I believe he would), but I do know that this action by Murkowski reeks of desperation, narcissism and a total lack of class.

Another Sore Loser

As Steve pointed out earlier, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski is running an active write-in campaign to secure her seat after she lost the GOP primary to Joe Miller.  She is attempting to undermine the duly approved candidate of the Alaska GOP and threatening to turn this seat over to Democrats by dividing Republicans.

Today, the Senate GOP voted to allow Murkowski to retain her seat as ranking member of the Senate Energy Committe despite her decision to challenge Miller in the general election.  I guess I understand part of their reasoning in doing so.

Another senior GOP aide said he thought the members felt Murkowski could win and did not want to look as if they were “kicking her while she’s down,” adding, “And if she does win, by some chance, they don’t want tick her off and push her away from voting with the conference.”

Murkowski, who is in Alaska, said earlier Wednesday that she is a Republican and always has been and has every intention of caucusing with Republicans should she win.

She is an opposite example of the Joe Lieberman phenomenon in Connecticut,  She, like Charlie Crist in Florida, decided to deny the will of the voters.  And Murkowski, like Crist and deated Delaware Senator, Mike Castle, is a sore loser from the establishment.  Murkowski was appointed to the Senate by her father, Frank Murkowski, who was governor at the time and later defeated by Sarah Palin.  Frank was part of the GOP establishment, earmark-happy trio from Alaska that included Don Young and Ted Stevens.  Lisa was a moderate continuation of that establishment bloodline who was defeated by a Tea Party-backed conservative, Joe Miller.

The Lisa Murkowski threat is real.  She can’t win the general election as a write-in candidate, but she can punish Joe Miller and hand the seat to a Democrat due to her family name.  She has decided that she is the only one of the three candidates for Senate qualified to serve the people of Alaska.  That’s total narcissism and reflects the sense of entitlement that she feels as a member of Alaskan royalty.

Hannity and Rush spearheaded a drive, indirectly, that put $1 million+ into the coffers of Delaware GOP Senate candidate, Christine O’Donnell.  It’s time to do the same for Miller.  Murkowski has $1 million to spend in Alaska.  Miller has some funds from the Tea Party and (thank God) the RSC folks.  He needs help from us.  Miller is the conservative in the race and deserves our support.  The House will go GOP in the elections, but we also need the Senate to ensure that Obama’s socialist agenda is stopped.  The Alaska race is crucial.

Donate here.  Don’t let Lisa ruin the party.  She is not entitled to anything.  The establishment is endangered.  Let’s send the message.  Don’t just elect Republicans.  Elect Conservatives.

Don’t Allow RINOs to Turn Us Back!

It’s announced by the Washington Post moments ago that defeated incumbent RINO-Republican, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, is expected to announce a write-in candidacy after losing the Republican primary to Palin-backed Joe Miller.

What’s next?  Is Mike Castle going to do the same thing in Delaware?

This week has been funny watching liberals suddenly rush to the defense of all the same types of the Republicans they blame for the mess we are in now when we actually get around to nominating real conservatives to bring back the party’s principles.

In addition to liberals whose pants are scared off, a lot of RINO back-scratchers like Karl Rove are throwing fits on Fox News whenever a conservative Palin-backed candidate ousts another RINO incumbent.

Let me make myself clear:  RINOs are just as bad for this country and for our party as the liberals are.  IF we have to sacrifice seats this year to keep them out, it is worth it.  Because when the chickens come home to roost as a result of these rotten spending plans, we’ll know which party is responsible for it. 

We must stand united in saying “No!” to candidates like Murkowski and other RINOs alike.

Miller Closer than Expected (Thanks Sarah!)

(Notice the “grim” picture of the photo of Joe Miller used by the media)

I was very interested in the Alaskan Senate race and have been following Sarah Palin’s Facebook posts.

I spent last week paying attention to the AP and to observe alleged “Alaskans” coming out against Palin in this massive support for incumbent, Lisa Murkowski. 

Murkowski did not win her initial seat in the United States Senate.  She was appointed by the then-Governor, Frank Murkowski, who also happened to be her daddy.  Sarah Palin was a candidate back in those days of a short-list Murkowski kept to fill that seat and in the end, he chose his daughter.  As Palin was cast aside by Murkowski, he offered her the job of heading the Alaska Oil and Gas Commission.  It was there which Palin gained her vast knowledge on energy issues where she teamed up with Democrats to take out Republican operatives (establishment RINOs) who were taking information from the AOGC to oil-industry insiders.  This began Palin’s crusade against the Murkowskis.  The private jets, the personal chefs, and the nepotism of back-scratching with family members and oil-industry executives at the expense of the people was a thing of the past!

After doing this, Palin took Frank Murkowski on and won Alaska’s Governor’s race in a landslide. 

Not only did Murkowski get canned, but Palin canned every corrupt member of Murkowski’s back-scratching team.  So naturally, Lisa Murkowski has had a grudge against Palin for quite sometime.

Allegedly knowing how bureaucracy works, Lisa Murkowski defied common sense and publicly slammed Palin for resigning last year as Governor.  Even though Palin’s enemies; which consisted of both liberals and Palin-spanked RINOs, used an ethics law which Palin championed for to file almost 30 frivolous ethics charges against her that cost Palin nearly a half-million in personal legal debt as well as $2M of Alaskan taxpayer money and endless state resources of time and energy distracting Palin’s impressive administration from moving forward.  Murkowski denied the common sense characterization of Palin’s resignation (selfless and in the best interest of Alaskans) and attacked to appease the anti-Palin sentiment portrayed to this day by the media and liberals alike.

The cronyism among Murkowski-like Republicans has been just as devastating to our country as liberalism.  In fact, it’s even worse.  They do it in the name of “conservatism.”

For the last week, every media article released defined the race as a no-brainer for Murkowski.  A Politico article today describes “public polls showed Murkowski heavily favored to win Tuesday’s primary” while others simultaneously portrayed the race as a grudge match between Murkowski and Palin

Step 1. Discourage Miller’s voters from turning out.

Step 2. Be able to portray this as an overwhelming message of America’s anti-Palinism while loving the RINOs who have contributed to running our country in the ground.

But tonight, with 51% of the precincts reporting, Miller leads Murkowski by 52% to 48%.

Even though the media did its best to underscore the Palin-endorsed candidate’s chances.  Even though Alaskan “Republicans” have been coming out of the woodwork mysteriously to tell us how Palin embarrasses them and doesn’t speak for them.

No matter how this race concludes, the power of Palin and the tea party against establishment RINO incumbents; who suck up to convenience and diss conviction is undeniable. Even if Murkowski does pull ahead in the second half of the precincts to report, knowing she massively outspent Miller, the fact that she’s probably pissing in her pants right now is proof.

I cannot wait to get the AP’s interpretation of this tomorrow.

Notice how everything the AP does lately with regard to the upcoming midterms centers around Palin and her influence.  But expect to turn blue holding your breath waiting for them to accurately portray it.
