Turn Out The Lights, The Tea Party’s Over For Joe Miller

How dare you lose, Joe Miller!

The Boston Blizzard of 2010 is now over and we are back online. More about that in the next few days. In the meantime, Lynnrockets would like to get back to business. So, without further ado…

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).

Finally, Alaska’s Tea Party candidate for U.S. Senate, Joe Miller is admitting defeat (sort of). On Sunday, his campaign issued a press release in which he said that he will cease his attempts to prohibit the Alaska Division of Elections from certifying that Republican Lisa Murkowski was the winner of the November election. His decision came as the result of the Alaska Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling against Miller’s election challenge. Consequently, Murkowski will now take her Senate seat and Alaska will have full representation when Congress reconvenes in January.

Miller however, will not fade away peacefully. The Sarah Palin endorsed candidate with a troubled past will continue litigation in the federal court system. He admits that his efforts have no chance of overturning the election, but he would like to see his devastating loss marginalized by a reduction in the number of votes awarded to write-in candidate Murkowski. Presently, unofficial results show Murkowski winning the election by more than 10,000 votes in the sparsely populated state.

It would appear that Miller’s federal court action has nothing to do with the citizens of Alaska and everything to do with his own vanity. Miller believes that if the final results show a narrower margin of victory for Murkowski, he will have a better chance of running for elected office in the future. He seems oblivious to the fact that he was soundly embarrassed by his lopsided loss to a write-in candidate. He also does not seem to realize that his popularity and credibility were diminished on an almost daily basis during his campaign as several less than flattering revelations regarding his past were revealed to the public. His popularity plunged even more after each of his successive court losses in the state system. In short, Joe Miller’s dreams for future elective office are illusory at best. Everyone seems cognizant of this fact except Joe Miller.

The demise of Joe Miller is also a blow to Sarah Palin. She 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. Still, the Alaskan voter rejection of Joe “Dump Social Security” Miller is 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.

Odds are that Palin too will now disavow Joe Miller. As we all know, Sarah Palin’s loyalty only runs as deep as her profit margin.

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. Glad you survived the blizzard, so much fun huh? As for Mr. Jo(k)e Miller, I seem to recall one of his constantly repeated talking points was that the federal government should just leave everything to the states. “It’s a state issue” was his mantra. Ah, yes of course except when it’s YOUR issue Mr. Miller! No problem wasting the federal court’s time on YOUR issue that the state has rendered a decision on. What a hypocrite. And given all the people that she has thrown under it, Sarah could well be saying “We’re going to need a bigger bus!”

  2. I’m betting they find some interesting emails about a puppy between Miller and Palin around the time Trig was presented.

    Feds stay out, but send us your money from other states so we don’t have to pay taxes and whatnot….
