(Notice the “grim” picture of the photo of Joe Miller used by the media)
I was very interested in the Alaskan Senate race and have been following Sarah Palin’s Facebook posts.
I spent last week paying attention to the AP and to observe alleged “Alaskans” coming out against Palin in this massive support for incumbent, Lisa Murkowski.
Murkowski did not win her initial seat in the United States Senate. She was appointed by the then-Governor, Frank Murkowski, who also happened to be her daddy. Sarah Palin was a candidate back in those days of a short-list Murkowski kept to fill that seat and in the end, he chose his daughter. As Palin was cast aside by Murkowski, he offered her the job of heading the Alaska Oil and Gas Commission. It was there which Palin gained her vast knowledge on energy issues where she teamed up with Democrats to take out Republican operatives (establishment RINOs) who were taking information from the AOGC to oil-industry insiders. This began Palin’s crusade against the Murkowskis. The private jets, the personal chefs, and the nepotism of back-scratching with family members and oil-industry executives at the expense of the people was a thing of the past!
After doing this, Palin took Frank Murkowski on and won Alaska’s Governor’s race in a landslide.
Not only did Murkowski get canned, but Palin canned every corrupt member of Murkowski’s back-scratching team. So naturally, Lisa Murkowski has had a grudge against Palin for quite sometime.
Allegedly knowing how bureaucracy works, Lisa Murkowski defied common sense and publicly slammed Palin for resigning last year as Governor. Even though Palin’s enemies; which consisted of both liberals and Palin-spanked RINOs, used an ethics law which Palin championed for to file almost 30 frivolous ethics charges against her that cost Palin nearly a half-million in personal legal debt as well as $2M of Alaskan taxpayer money and endless state resources of time and energy distracting Palin’s impressive administration from moving forward. Murkowski denied the common sense characterization of Palin’s resignation (selfless and in the best interest of Alaskans) and attacked to appease the anti-Palin sentiment portrayed to this day by the media and liberals alike.
The cronyism among Murkowski-like Republicans has been just as devastating to our country as liberalism. In fact, it’s even worse. They do it in the name of “conservatism.”
For the last week, every media article released defined the race as a no-brainer for Murkowski. A Politico article today describes “public polls showed Murkowski heavily favored to win Tuesday’s primary” while others simultaneously portrayed the race as a grudge match between Murkowski and Palin.
Step 1. Discourage Miller’s voters from turning out.
Step 2. Be able to portray this as an overwhelming message of America’s anti-Palinism while loving the RINOs who have contributed to running our country in the ground.
But tonight, with 51% of the precincts reporting, Miller leads Murkowski by 52% to 48%.
Even though the media did its best to underscore the Palin-endorsed candidate’s chances. Even though Alaskan “Republicans” have been coming out of the woodwork mysteriously to tell us how Palin embarrasses them and doesn’t speak for them.
No matter how this race concludes, the power of Palin and the tea party against establishment RINO incumbents; who suck up to convenience and diss conviction is undeniable. Even if Murkowski does pull ahead in the second half of the precincts to report, knowing she massively outspent Miller, the fact that she’s probably pissing in her pants right now is proof.
I cannot wait to get the AP’s interpretation of this tomorrow.
Notice how everything the AP does lately with regard to the upcoming midterms centers around Palin and her influence. But expect to turn blue holding your breath waiting for them to accurately portray it.
