Murkowski Concedes To (Tea Party) Miller

From a deeply saddened Reuters:

Alaska Sen Murkowski upset by Tea Party-backed rival

By Yereth Rosen Wed Sep 1, 2010

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) – Senator Lisa Murkowski dropped out of the Republican Senate primary in Alaska on Tuesday, conceding to a Tea Party-backed insurgent in a stunning upset fueled by conservative supporters.

Joe Miller, a Fairbanks attorney who was heavily backed by former Alaska governor and potential 2012 presidential contender Sarah Palin, had a thin lead over Murkowski as the last ballots from the August 24 primary election were counted

Again, this is the same Sarah Palin the media said was dead as a political force.

Murkowski becomes the seventh member of Congress, and the third senator, ousted amid anti-incumbent fervor fanned largely by a weak economy and the conservative Tea Party movement…

It is decidedly not an “anti-incumbent fervor.” It is a fervor for voting for the most conservative viable candidate in the race. It is an anti-liberal fervor.

Murkowski, the most senior Republican on the Senate Energy Committee, has been considered a moderate on several issues and a potential compromise vote on national climate legislation.

Which is to say that she was barely acceptable to our media masters.

Miller is on record as denying that human-caused emissions are responsible for climate change

Which is to say he is a raving lunatic in the eyes of the ‘global warming’ cultists which comprise our watchdog media.

  1. Its awesome.

    THIS is how its supposed to be done.. not with third parties. God bless Alaska.

    “Miller is on record as denying that human-caused emissions are responsible for climate change…”

    Which makes him okay in my book. There is hope.

  3. oldpuppydixie says:

    I’m rather surprised Murkowski retired with such grace. Could it be she figures that was the best way to launch her run as an independent??!!

    As Alaska Goes, So Goes The Nation…God Willing!

    • Indeed.. As I watch the press attempt to highlight differences between the conservatives and Republicans, in a manner of separation, then watch them dismiss the power of the tea party movement as waining.. I am energized to see continued results of BOTH working together.. Murkowski may have been told to pack it in by the Rs.

    This is a major event. Tea Party, rino, Palin, Rand Paul, Sharon Angle, Utah, others.

    No movement has become this powerful this fast.

    It’s not sniping, it’s a full-frontal assault.

    But Sharan Angle is the most important one. A virtual nobody who started without the backing of the opposition party to beat a sitting Senate Majority Leader would be one of the greatest shocks of all time in American politics.

  6. Mithrandir says:

    Drudge link to AP story said: “Sarah Palin is still a deeply divisive figure in Alaska.”

    The AP is only fooling itself. Somehow, an extremely popular Republican, is extremely hated. —Isn’t it always reported that way by the AP anyway?

  7. hushpuppy says:

    “Blacks own slaves in Mauitania, Sudan, Niger & Haiti.”

    They still do.

    In fact it was black on black slavery for who knows how long before whites started owning slaves. But America began to flourish only when slavery was abolished.

    – this is something that professional shakedown artists like Sharpton and Jackass will never admit to.
