    Palin Power Strikes Back

    Once again Sarah Palin defies the establishment, and sends a strong signal that American voters are not happy with the political status quo.

    Joe Miller was a political unknown in Alaska – a no-namer running to be a United States Senator. His campaign lacked funds, name recognition, and overall enthusiams from voters. Also, he was running against entrenched Republican Party member Lisa Murkowski, a member of an Alaskan political family dynasty whose father was a recent former governor.

    Then came an endorsement from Sarah Palin and the race changed for Joe Miller.


    ...Palin’s words proved quite effective in favor of the Joe Miller campaign, and now the political outsider underdog is poised to enjoy one of the most significant upsets in Alaska political history. With absentee ballots remaining to be counted, Joe Miller has a slim 2000 vote lead over Lisa Murkowski. By next week Alaskans and Americans will know if this political upset becomes reality.

    Either way, the political influence of Sarah Palin and conservative Americans is undeniable, and will likely continue to play a very significant factor as the nation prepares to vote in November.

    If Joe Miller is good enough for Sarah Palin, he'd probably be my choice also.

    It would be cool if Americans could learn to think for themselves instead of following any politician's recommendation.

    I'll bet all of these candidates just love her taking credit for their hard work in the race.

    It is interesting to watch Palin appearing to stand up to the established power brokers in the Republican party.

    I wonder how surprised people like you will be when she finally shows her real colors and starts marching in lockstep with the RNC.

    "The Republican party would be smart to absorb as much of the Tea Party as possible." (Palin, last February)

    Joe may be the underdog in this fight (because by using the power of a politician’s incumbency after being given her Senate seat by her father, Lisa Murkowski has outspent Joe six to one), but Alaskans see through this and are recognizing Joe’s ability to be a real leader. Lisa Murkowski is endorsed by special interests and unions. Joe Miller is a man of the people, endorsed by the people. But as Alaska comes into its own, it’s important to remember that this election is not just about Alaska; it’s about our whole country. Remember, when it comes to the Senate, Alaska is just as important as California or New York. One vote is one vote. Our Alaska election affects the entire nation.
