Is Murkowski Considering Conceding?

August 31, 2010
By

There is said to be more to come on this, later.

Sources in Alaska have informed Big Government that the trend in the count of absentee ballots makes it virtually impossible that Sen. Murkowski will overtake Joe Miller in the GOP Senate Primary. A trusted and well-placed operative told BG:

It’s over.

Sources have...

A momentary flash of insight into that great abyss, the “progressive” mind

August 31, 2010
By

"I don't think you know it yet, but you have won," Glenn Beck tells viewers this afternoon, understandably gloating a bit at the collectivist navel-gazing left's continuing incomprehension of this "predominantly white" "Restoring America" thing that went off without a hitch — not a scrap of litter left behind for ...

Update: Breaking: 496 New Ballots Suddenly Appear In Murkowski District

August 31, 2010
By

Update: As far as I know at this point, these ballots were counted today, possibly breaking 60/40 Murkowski. But it is one of her stronger areas. I think what some are concerned about is a nickle and dime strategy that ultimately leads to a recount, where the real fun...

Meghazilla McCain: Pwalitics Are Pwetty Kool

August 31, 2010
By

Fortunately, I have F-Secure 9.0 virus protection between my eyes and my brain. So, as soon as I started reading this crap, it was identified, contained and auto-deleted. Shorter Meghazilla: I was plopped out into an air conditioned hospital in AZ as a child of privilege and have never wanted for...

CBS: Beck’s Crowd Numbers Explained, Matt Lewis Should Stick To Blogs

August 31, 2010
By

This cracks me the hell up. I don't see any way Beck's schtick as it currently stands plays in prime-time. That's why there's a History Channel. What I find most interesting is where some of the push behind Beck is coming from and his recent focus on religion.

It's also interesting that...

Anchorage, Alaska. August 31, 2010 — The Joe Miller for U.S. Senate campaign applauded the decision by Alaska Lt. Gov. Craig Campbell to post assistant attorneys general at the ballot counting rooms following the revelation that a Murkowski observer wrongfully accessed a...

Joe Miller Looking Good In Absentee Count

August 31, 2010
By

Stacy McCain reports team Miller is satisfied at this point. Sources in Alaska I've spoken to expect to see Miller still ahead at the end of today, though it isn't likely to be over tonight. According to some, Murkowski is actually somewhat under-performing on absentees in some key districts she won. h/t C4P for this Hotline link, which...

Megha Moronic Breast Flashing Drama Queen Calls Palin Dramatic

August 31, 2010
By

The News Real Blog recently featured some of this boob's prose left on the copy editing floor. Let's see, she's flashed her breasts on Twitter, was dumped from the campaign, and her book is entitled "Dirty, Sexy, Politics." And that's just for starters. But Palin is the drama queen? And Stephanoupolus thinks she's a...

WI Democrat Barrett’s History Of Politicizing Previous Beating Incident

August 31, 2010
By

An interesting item that was just non-news in late July. Journalists don't usually simply come up with these blurb ideas. They are fed them from both camps. Here's a contemporaneous report of Barrett's confrontation with a 20 year-old pipe wielding nut last year. Six-weeks ago it was news, again – now today they are...

Democrat Cries “No Mas” In WI Governor’s Race

August 31, 2010
By

Geez, talk about playing the victim card. After reading the AP report, I expected a 12 round commerical in boxing shorts. As I don't see any advantage in making fun of a previous beating the Democrat took while intervening in an apparent family dispute, it looks as though far too...

Link Fixed: Talking Kick Ass Conservative Politics And Alaska With Melissa Clouthier

August 31, 2010
By

Update: This was a much longer talk than originally posted. It's my understanding there was a glitch and the full podcast will get uploaded. The first 13 minutes are just that. Sorry.

I've noticed something that probably shouldn't really come as a surprise when I do podcasts with Melissa Clouthier. You know ...

What’s News Today

August 31, 2010

Wow! So, um, I guess every bit of "breaking news, original reporting, insightful opinions and engaging videos about the stories that matter most" in the world today somehow revolves around Glenn Beck. Imagine that. Heh! Oops – site was down temporarily. Oh well, it ain't easy being the center of the...

You remember grabby Bob get out my face, who are you Etheridge, right? He had that run in with a student in DC. Video at previous link.

Long-time friend and old school blogger Lorie Byrd is working with challenger Renee Ellmer's campaign. Blog post here. While moneybombs are going to be dropping from the sky like...

Mark Levin’s Rousing Call To Arms For The Tea Party Movement

August 30, 2010
By

Damn. Mark Levin was on fire tonight, while I was preoccupied with events in Alaska. But it's the same fight. It's one America began over two-hundred years ago and, as Mark points out, will never truly end.

Government is necessary. But just as people must be governed, so must government be...

By The Rules: Alaska Count Set To Begin

August 30, 2010
By

It looks like a fairly straight-forward process, beginning tomorrow and lasting a week.

As of this past weekend, Miller was leading by 1,668 votes. State officials start counting the more than 23,000 absentee and provisional ballots Tuesday and expect to be finished by next Wednesday — from there, they hope to...

Update: Joe Miller’s Critics Aren’t Making Sense

August 30, 2010
By

Update: A door closes for Murkowski. How long before the loyal Republican reaches out to the Dems ala Crist?

On Sunday morning, over coffee and donuts, the ExComm voted unanimously, 5 to 0 to deny the Senator the ballot line. There was no malice intended. ALP Chair Kohlhaas has repeatedly stated...

What’s Really Happening In Alaska

August 30, 2010
By

Geesh! I've had more emails and calls regarding some recent posts than ever. What's going on, people seem to be saying.

I'll sum it up the way I just did to a friend. There are good, bad and indifferent actors within the establishment GOP. No one should tar the whole thing...

If Murkowski Cheated On Bar Exam, Why Not Cheat In An Election?

August 30, 2010
By

In 1987, after presumably taking and failing the admittedly difficult Alaskan Bar Exam several times, Senator Lisa Murkowski seems to have begun a long-term close relationship with a bar exam preparation company later hit with an 11.9 million dollar copyright violation judgment for wrongly acquiring currently in use bar exam questions to provide to...

Doc Drop: Miller Camp Cites Possible Vote Tampering By Murkowski Observer

August 29, 2010
By

Rut Roh – a troubling three page letter from the Miller campaign citing multiple potential infractions of election law and procedure by a Murkowski observer, who, after mis-identifying himself, was allowed unfettered access to a computer he should not have accessed. The access presented a clear opportunity for vote tampering.

Alaska’s Joe Miller faces the nation: A poster boy for anti-establishment Republicans?

By Sissy Willis of sisu

"Fortunately, passionate Americans tend to find each other," writes our North Pole correspondent [!], self-described "Agriculture's Copywriter" Pete Alexion, an Alaskan oner who — like Sarah Palin and ourselves — is not amused with Beltway GOP poobahs' apparent meddling in our 49th state's primary election. Here's...
