Yeah, yeah, you know who I mean. She Who Shall Not Be Named. I’m certainly not going to help people spell her name right. Besides, it fits.
Bout time Sarah! My only question, where’s this been hiding?
Yesterday, Lisa Murkowski’s hired guns threatened radio host Dan Fagan, and more importantly, the station that airs Fagan’s show, with legal action for allegedly illegal “electioneering.” The station, unlike Murkowski, who is flush with millions of dollars from vested corporate interests, does not have a budget for a legal defense. So it did what any small market station would do when threatened by Beltway lawyers charging $500 to $1000 an hour – they pulled Dan Fagan off the air.
Does all this sound heavy handed? It is. It is an interference with Dan Fagan’s constitutional right to free speech. It is also a shocking indictment against Lisa Murkowski. How low will she go to hold onto power? First, she gets the Division of Elections to change its write-in process – a process that Judge Pfiffner correctly determined had been in place without change for 50 years. She is accepting financial support from federal contractors, an act that is highly questionable and now pending before the FEC. And today, she played her last card. She made it clear that if you disagree with her and encourage others to exercise their civic rights, she’ll take you off the air. [read the rest]
Sore loser, self-entitled, princess Skeezy Mercury is precisely the type of politician that Americans need to flush out of congress: people who put power before principles, hell, people who don’t have any principles to put first to begin with. This race is unfortunately close. Help defeat She Who Must Not Be Named by giving what you can to Joe Miller, or volunteering (from wherever you are). This race represents exactly the kind of change the Republican party needs to make!

Contrary to this corrupt judge’s ruling (a judge appointed by Lisa’s daddy), public officials do NOT give up their right to privacy. This is the reason we still don’t have Barack Obama’s birth certificate, college transcripts, or full medical records. (birds of a feather: Obama only won his senate seat by getting corrupt Chicago judges to unseal the divorce records of his opponents).
This is politics at it’s dirtiest.
Clearly Sarah Palin did not finish her good work cleaning up corruption in Alaska:
“I hold that although Mr. Miller has a legitimate expectation of privacy in those documents, Mr. Miller’s right to privacy is indeed outweighed by the public’s significant interest in the background of a public figure who is running for the U.S. Senate,” the judge said. He noted that U.S. senator is among the highest elected offices in the nation.
Burbank ordered that nothing actually will be released until Tuesday afternoon, however, to allow for the ruling to be appealed to the Alaska Supreme Court.
The judge said that about 30 of the documents being sought would not be released. Twice that number would be redacted. The case was brought by a group of Alaska news media organizations, which have been trying since summer to see borough documents concerning Miller’s employment as a part-time borough attorney.
Yet more proof that Lisa Murky is exactly the type of corrupt, sleazy, power-hungry scoundrel that Americans need to RID congress of. If you are an Alaska voter, PLEASE clean up your state and do whatever you have to do to vote for Joe Miller. I don’t care if you have to hike 50 miles uphill in the snow to get to the polls — VOTE! This sleazeball must be kicked out of congress!
And no matter where you live, you can contribute to and volunteer for the Joe Miller campaign here. (An added bonus for contributing to the Miller campaign, is that Alaska is a small market, and your dollars will go much further than they would in most of the lower 48, so every dollar really does count.)
If by chance you give the maximum donation to Miller’s campaign, other groups you can also contribute to that are working to elect Joe Miller are the Club for Growth and the Senate Conservatives Fund.
