Palin and Miller Get Spanked By Alaskans

I lost by just this much!

It is not “Miller Time” in Alaska. The “Fat Lady” is now singing quite loudly. Stick a fork in Joe Miller because he is done. Turn out the lights because the Tea Party’s over. Add your favorite cliché (here).

Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski has declared victory in Alaska’s bitter and prolonged Senate battle. The result sends a stinging message to Tea Party candidate Joe Miller that the state’s voters do not favor the Tea Party’s radically conservative political agenda. It also sends a biting message to Sarah Palin that she now carries little to no political influence in her home state. The former ex-quitting half-term Governor endorsed Miller in the election.

Sarah Palin had made it quite clear that she was no friend of the Murkowski family. She not only had a history of bad-mouthing Lisa Murkowski, but also her father Frank Murkowski who served as Alaska’s Governor prior to Palin. In an attempt to derail Lisa Murkowski’s Senate campaign, Palin endorsed the little known Joe Miller in her frenzy of nationwide Tea Party candidate endorsements. Palin’s plan met with some early success when Miller defeated Murkowski in the Republican primary, but that success was short-lived.

Refusing to accept defeat at the hands of Sarah Palin, Murkowski ran as a Republican write-in candidate in the general election. Her campaign gained steam as voters became aware of Miller’s shady past and grew tired of Palin’s meddling in the affairs of the state that she politically abandoned. Alaska’s voters, in turn, abandoned both Miller and Palin and wrote the letters “L-I-S-A  M-U-R-K-O-W-S-K-I” on enough election day ballots to defy the odds and send the incumbent back to Washington for a second term. Lisa Murkowski became the first write-in candidate to win a U.S. Senate seat since 1954. How do you like them apples, Joe and Sarah?

Sarah Palin had already suffered the indignity of having most of her high profile Tea Party endorsees lose in the mid-term elections. The nation’s voters rejected Palin’s judgment in supporting such moonbat-crazy candidates as Sharron “2nd Amendment Remedies” Angle, Christine “Witchy Woman” O’Donnell, Linda “Woman Are Sex Objects” McMahon, Carly “Worst CEO In History” Fiorina, Meg “illegal Housekeeper” Whitman, John “Lasers In The Sky” Raese, Tom “Bomb Mecca” Tancredo, Sean “Privatize Social Security” Bielat, Ken “No Abortion For Rape Victims” Buck and Dino “Repeal Wall Street Reform” Rossi. Nevertheless, the Alaskan voter rejection of Joe “Dump Social Security” Miller was the most embarrassing loss of all. Sarah Palin went “all in” on Miller in an effort to punish Murkowski and to simultaneously solidify her influence in Alaska. With Miller’s stunning defeat, Palin not only lost the hand, but she was forced out of the game. Sarah Palin will now be viewed as a limited political figure that cannot even garner support from her own fellow Alaskans.

Lisa Murkowski now has the upper hand in Alaska and it did not take her long to go on the offensive. Tasting imminent election victory, Murkowski on Monday said that Palin is not worldly enough for the nation’s highest office. Adding insult to Palin’s injury, Murkowski said she will repay the moderates, Independents and Democrats that elected her by not voting strictly with her party. She said,

“I will tell you, I am not one of those who wants Obama to fail. If he does well, that means the country’s doing well. We don’t have time as a nation to spend all of what we do blocking. We have got to figure out how we get to a point where we can be sitting around the table and talking about these difficult problems and advancing some solutions.”

Take that, Sarah Palin! Even a Republican Senator from your home state disavows your unpopular political positions.

HANG DOWN YOUR HEAD, JOE MILLER

(sung to the Kingston Trio song “Tom Dooley”)

Throughout history
There’ve been many songs written about the political triangle
This next one tells the story of Sarah Palin, Lisa Murkowski
And a defeated man named Joe Miller…
When the sun rises tomorrow, Joe Miller…will be gone…

Hang down your head, Joe Miller
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Joe Miller
Election hopes have died

No room on Senate mountain
Voters said, “No dice”
Lisa drinks from that fountain
She put Joe on ice

Hang down your head, Joe Miller
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Joe Miller
Election hopes have died

This time tomorrow
Know where Joe will be?
His time he will be wastin’
Just cryin’ with Sarah P.

(well now boy)

Hang down your head, Joe Miller
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Joe Miller
Election hopes have died

Hang down your head, Joe Miller
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Joe Miller
Election hopes have died

This time tomorrow
Joe will finally see
Down in the Mat Su Valley
They voted for Murkowski

Hang down your head, Joe Miller
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Joe Miller
Election hopes have died

Hang down your head, Joe Miller
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Joe Miller
Election hopes have died

Poor boy your hopes have died
Poor boy your hopes have died
Poor boy your hopes have –  died

  1. Kingston Trio, wow that goes way back. Good song choice. As to Lisa M., I hope she repays the moderates, D’s and I’s that voted for her, but Chris Hayes interviewed her last night on The Last Word and she did the typical politician two-step when asked if she would vote for the Dream Act and the repeal of DADT. She said she wasn’t convinced these should be dealt with during the lame duck session, there were lots of things to do, blah, blah, blah. Is lack of a spine a prerequisite for members of Congress?

  2. Pat, I don’t know if you are male or female, but I love you.

  3. Least worst of the worser

    Our corrupt political system worked just well enough to thwart Miller and Palin’s godfather -South Carolina’s reactionary Ayatollah DeMint. What a relief to end up with a regular, standard- issue US Senator who will merely bend over, backwards and forwards, for Big Oil lobbyists while opposing earmarks reform.

  4. Lisa M now saying ‘she would not vote against a bill that had (DADT) repeal in it’

    as we say around here – Light dawns on Marblehead…

  5. Although I would have liked it if Scott McAdams had won, I am happy for the good people of Alaska who dodged a hairy bullet named Joe Miller. As time went by, they saw this man for the flake he is and acted in their own best interests in thwarting his election.
    He will always be linked to Sarah Palin, and his obstinate refusal to yield to the will of the Alaskans who chose Murkowski over him makes him look even worse. And the more he digs in, the more he proves his unfitness for any elective office. Of course, the more he proves his unfitness, the more it does to discredit Palin herself.
