    it's not like there isn't enough room up there. first palin, and now this hypocritical asshat.

    jebus- keep em up there-we've got more than enough down here.

    Former mayor: Joe Miller nearly fired from lawyer job - BostonHerald.com

    JUNEAU, Alaska — Republican U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller almost lost his job as an attorney with the Fairbanks North Star Borough for using government computers in an unsuccessful bid to overthrow Alaska’s GOP chairman in 2008, former Mayor Jim Whitaker said.

    Whitaker told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that while Miller’s actions violated an ethics policy, they didn’t get him fired because Miller was needed for work on a pipeline lawsuit. Whitaker said he felt the need to speak up because he didn’t think Miller was going to do so.

    A Miller spokesman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Earlier, the campaign referred an Associated Press reporter, who had asked about allegations raised by the online Alaska Dispatch about Miller’s borough employment, to a statement Miller made Monday saying he’d no longer answer questions about his past...

    In recent weeks, Miller has had to respond to a series of disclosures about his past, including reports that he accepted federal farm subsidies in the 1990s, that his wife briefly obtained unemployment benefits, and that his family for a period received Medicaid — benefits he now rails against or believes would be better decided at the state level. He said his family struggled for a time, like a lot of other families have, but that he receives no benefits now and none of this has any relevance to the race

    i don't blame him for not wanting to talk about his past. anyone that knows anything about him and has a higher than room temp IQ wouldn't vote for him. :cuckoo:

    I can understand why Alaska would want to get rid of them. Since they can see Russia and all, why not send their defectives there? They could probably just stick 'em in a rowboat and shove 'em off. Cheap and easy!

    This ranks pretty low on my "give-a-shit" meter...

    I'm glad Murkowski isn't going to DC, though...

    My guess is they see Slick Willie Stainmaster running around, impressing everyone with his heartfelt bleetings that "Republicans are Liars," and Alaskans figure everyone in the lower 48 must be idiots.

    "Do as I say, not as I do" should be the tea party slogan. Hey many of the closed-minded right wingers on this site fully subscribe to this theory!

    Personally, I find it all laughable and so typical. Here you have some real average folks running for office, and the left gets their panties in a wad because they're not the typical bunch of pseudo-intellectual types from Harvard, Brown, Yale, etc.

    Seriously, look at what these Ivy Leaguers have given us. It's a frigg'n mess. It is painfully obvious that Harvard doesn't automatically = Brilliant or for that matter, capable.

    Really, and who exactly are the elitists?
