Lisa Murkowski Seeks To Split Republican Vote With Write-In CampaignPosted by Al @ 8:16 am
What do expect from a woman whose entrance into Alaska politics was ushered in as a gift from her father, who vacated the seat after winning the gubernatorial race. That went over so well that a law was passed to disallow such future actions.
Lisa Murkowski feels that people really didn’t understand what they were doing at the voting booth, so maybe she can introduce some legislation that would better educate the public on the virtues of Rhinos and Progressives. Until then, she wants to have a do-over. Murkowski feels that this seat is hers, so if she, as a Rhino can’t win it, then no Republican should – no room for conservatives here. What a shame it would be that if every time the GOP throws support behind a Rhino, The Tea Party patriots just write-in another candidate(non-GOP) on election day.
As reported by MSNBC,
Murkowski told supporters at a late afternoon rally in Anchorage that she’s worried about Republican nominee Joe Miller’s extremist views, as well as the Democratic candidate’s inexperience.
So conservatism is extremism in her view. Relative to Progressivism and Socialism, I guess so. I also noticed she didn’t comment on the Democratic nominee’s liberal and/or progressive views.
“This is Alaska, where we come together, and we embrace one another for who we are, not because we may share the same political label, but because of who we are and what we contribute to our state,” she said. “This is what makes Alaska great, not our political labels.”
Now that’s convenient for Murkowski. It’s not about labels and political parties. Bull! She’s never backed away from identity politics before, why now. Because she’s a political insider that feels like someone took her private property away.
Murkowski is your typical progressive Republican that’s very pro-choice. In fact, she’s a member of the Republican Majority For Choice, Republicans For Choice, and The Wish List (a group of pro-choice women Republicans).
