Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Murkowski launches write-in candidacy

She got beat in her primary.  Then she says she’s “not a quitter” and decides to launch a long-shot write-in campaign, ignoring the fact that getting beat isn’t the same as quitting.  Will she siphon off enough votes from Joe Miller to get a Democrat elected in a cherry red state during the Great Red Tsunami of 2010?  Time will tell.

Joe Miller tore into her by saying that Murky’s “lifeblood is power“, and I think that’s obvious to anyone.  After all, she complained that getting beat in her primary “didn’t give all Alaskans a voice” in the matter…which is the friggin’ point of a party primary, right?

Exit question (albeit one that requires a little setup here, so bear with me):

Is what Murky doing the same thing as what Lieberman did in CT in 2006?  I mean, Liebs got beat in his party’s primary, then turned around and ran as an indy and won.  The left tried to say that what Crist did in FL is no different than what Liebs did four years ago, to which the response is “Of course it’s different!”  See, Suntan Charlie quit the party when he realized he was going to get beat, before his party’s primary.  Afterwards, he disavowed everything he had ever allegedly stood for his entire political life.  Joey L never did that in CT, and his voting record since then proves he is still a Democrat.  I’m not saying that Liebs didn’t run as an indy for the purposes of holding onto power, as I’m sure that’s exactly why he ran.

That said, I must ask because I fancy myself as a consistent fellow: While Crist’s situation isn’t the same as Murky’s, is what Murky doing the same thing as what Lieberman did in CT in 2006?

  1. Leiberman lost on a close Democratic Primary, but was leading in the polls with the general population leading to Liebs Indy run. Liebs also made it very clear early on he was still going to caucus with the Dems. I don’t know the polling case in Alaska, so I can’t say it’s the same, but I’ll bet Merki will promise to caucus with the Repubs. Chalie jumped before the primary for two reasons. The filing date for the general election was before the primary took place, so if he was going to jump off he had to do it early. Second, Charlie was looking at polls, like Liebs, that he’ll loose the primary, but have a chance in a General. The big diference is Charlie is not a lock to caucus with the Repubs.

  2. Charlie is a likely lock to caucus AGAINST the Republicans, if he actually DOES what is consistent he now says (which I fail to see why anyone in the entire state would believe a THING he says, considering his INCINERATED credibility- seriously, his own family should vote against him in the privacy of that ballot boooth)…which is that he has awakened to smell the political Folders and now ALL those things he used to promote, he now has the position ” Hey, remember all that stuff I used to fight for? Well, NEVER MIND, I want to stay in politics, so screw the issues, I just want the pretty leather chair and oak wood desk!”.
    Liebs wanted to stay in power, sure…but he also intended to keep the ideology he had always voiced…Chuck is giving the shaft to all that…”Hey, I changed my mind. I’m now against ALL that stuff I was so passionately in favor of for two decades. Who wants to vote for ME?!”

  3. This morning she was on TV trying to justify her suckiness.
    Hey, I am not wanted, by and large…I know, I’ll be a write-in candidate in some pathetic attempt to gt voted in by the ones that DID want me, though the ones that didn’t are voting, and the DEMOCRATS are voting…yeah! That’ll help turn this country over…around from…socialistic minority rule!
