Joe Miller, Tea Party Nominee, Losing Ground In Alaska

November 11, 2010

Good.  What should we think about the ones who always want to stop the counting in places like Alaska…..Florida……?

We know from observers of the counting of write-in ballots for Alaska’s U.S. Senate race, and from the Anchorage Daily News , that around 98% of them appear to be for Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

OHHHH….now I see why Tea Party types who love and carry around the U.S. Constitution want to stop the voting.

A federal court judge has denied a request by U.S. GOP Senate candidate Joe Miller to immediately stop the state Division of Elections from counting write-in ballots that did not spell a candidate’s name correctly.

U.S. District Judge Ralph Beistline said Wednesday in his written decision that Miller has demonstrated no potential for irreparable harm. Incumbent Lisa Murkowski ran as a write-in candidate in the Nov. 2 election. Miller is running second to write-in ballots. Miller wants to prevent the state from using discretion in determining voter intent and to throw out ballots that misspell Murkowski’s name.

Beistline said the state’s response to the lawsuit summed up his evaluation of the case to this point.

State attorneys said an 18-hour window to respond was unfair and there were no circumstances that required such a rapid response. Beistline gave the state until Monday afternoon to respond.

    CBS affiliate in Anchorage has newscast nixed because of Ethics Issues in reporting of Joe Miller. Producers fired. You know, the basic things that always happen when you try to openly slam a candidate that you don’t agree with.

    The entire news staff is guilty of the hubris the infects most progressive liberals. Instead of reporting the news they think they can not just make the news but guide our thinking. They don’t understand the backlash by people who have no wish for anyone to tell them what they should be thinking.
