Tea Party Pouting
On September 17th, Senator Murkowski announced her write-in candidacy to save her job and then Miller had a rather public falling out with the State's famous, former half-term Governor, and then he had his "security" people put a reporter in handcuffs. To his apparent surprise, his poll numbers began dropping and, lo and behold, on election day the "Write In Candidates" beat him by several thousand votes.
That wasn't enough for Miller though...after all, you can't just assume that all the write-ins were for Murkowski...some people might have voted for Micky Mouse, or Harry Potter...all those 92,500 write in ballots had to be counted, of course.
Election officials had hoped to finish the count and finalize the election by Friday, 11/12...but all the challenges being put forth by the Miller people are slowing things down dramatically...who knows when Alaska will be able to finalize this election? I'm sure Miller plans to drag it out as long as possible...the court cases have only just begun.
And now Floyd Brown, who was the creator of the infamous "Willie Horton" ad back in 1988 has volunteered to join the Miller campaign as well.
These people are fucking pathetic.
