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.

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!
