Go away Joe. You lost, dude. Get over it already and fade back into obscurity where you belong.
The voters have spoken. Go home Joe.
"When Liberals say teabagger, they really mean American. They came up with the term so they can surreptitiously rant against Americans."
actually the term comes from a particular protest in which they were to send tea-bags in the mail to members of congress, whereby this protest was called "Teabag Congress"
of course none of them had AAAAANY idea what that meant
This will end up in Federal Court. The Federal law states that the legal rules for an election can NOT be changed during that election counting or voting. The law is clear. The oval must be colored the name must be correct. The State can now change that law for the next election but a Judge can not rule that the law does not apply to THIS election.
The law MUST be enforced as written. A Judge can not violate that at the State level. Not even the State Supreme Court. It is a Federal Law. This all came out in 2000 with Bush - Gore.
Turn off the lights when you leave.
"The definition of 'appears' in this context does not require perfection or precision, but rather a close, apparent approximation known to the viewer upon first look. This seems to the court the far more reasonable interpretation of the term than the rigid meaning attributed to it by (Miller)," the judge wrote in his ruling. "If exact spellings were intended by the legislature, even with respect to the most difficult names, the legislature could have and would have said so."

make sure the water's off too.
You lost, no one cares for your politics because its too fringe. People want centrist candidates that aren't crazy. Palin won't win old man. give it up
This is about the LAW. The legislature passed a law that STATED the last name must be used on the write in form and that the oval by the write in spot must be filled in. If either condition is not met it is an INVALID vote and can NOT legally be counted. Further it is a Federal election for US State Senator and Federal law states that the law governing a State run election can NOT be amended or changed during an election cycle.
If the Alaska Supreme Court refuses to follow the law Miller has a legal right to take it to Federal Court. Pretty simple concept.
It is also the law in most places to not jaywalk, so should we have the cops standing around on street corners at 3 o'clock in the morning giving tickets to people who walk across the street on a green light even though there are no cars around? It is the law, after all.
So, you want the Law to be anal.
Separate names with a comma.
