    I lift this post (pretty much verbatim) from the other thread which seeks to congratulate Sen. Murkoki for her claimed "win" in the alaska Senate race:

    Worth keeping an eye on?

    Right wing extremists always have temper tantrums when they lose. Remember the loser's hissy fit when Franken won? Same old crybaby games.

    You, of course, have it bass-ackwards.

    Libs like Franken could not accept electoral defeat, so, all too frequently they cook the books and steal elections. ["Bring out your dead! Bring out your dead! It's election day!"] Challenging that behavior is perfectly reasonable, however it gets resolved.

    Libbie bitches don't seem to bitch so much when a Lesa Morkaki loses a primary and then refuses to go quietly into that good night. But when a Republican or any conservative chooses to fight the results of an Election that appear to not have followed the actual rules, then it's time for the hypocritical lib bitches to lie and cry "crybabies!"

    Did you bitch so much, bitch, when your goofy lib pal, algore, sued over the 2000 Presidential Election outcome?

    It seems to me a voter who has followed (at the very least) local politics is so impressed by a long term politician or other candidate that they should know enough to be able to spell their name. How long has the Murkowski name been prominent in Alaskan politics?

    It's worse than that.

    The voters received AT THE TIME THEY VOTED a list of the names of all write-in candidates, so if they had a problem remembering how to spell "Murkowski" all on their own, they could have simply used the official crib sheet.

    And STILL some of them voted for folks with names like "Lesa Murkoki."

    Guys like Queen like to ask the irrelevant question, "Well, didn't the person who voted for Lesa Murkoki INTEND to vote for Senator Murkowski?" And the answer is, "maybe." But that's not the real question.

    The REAL question is "DID they vote for Lisa Murkowski?" And the answer is "no." Not according to the ELECTION LAW -- as written -- in the State of Alaska.

    But asking the correct question infuriates libs like Queen. And the fact that Miller is relying on the actual LAW pisses such libs off to no end.

    Too bad.

    Two peas in a pod, Gore/Bush Murkowski/Miller, in both were cases existing election law was overridden by judges; changed after the fact.

    Remind me, was Franken's 2008 campaign based on the principle of keeping the feds out of state business?
