Ah, Joe Miller. You Are About To Learn That Pride Goes Before The Fall.

For all the whooping over how Republicans and the Tea Party leverage social media, they sure are good at leaving their gaffes out there for everyone to see. You can't make this stuff up...check out Joe Miller's tweets last night, now

In case you can't read the small print, it seems that Tea Party Joe is visiting Washington DC and the DC Tea Party. While he's there, he wants to shop for office furniture, house hunt, and look into name plaques for his door. He's also looking forward to meeting his "future colleagues".

Not so fast Joe. Those tweets, now deleted, were caught by "WriteInLisa", or Lisa Murkowski, who is running a strong write-in campaign. According to Nate Silver, she just might win, too. While Murkowski's campaign does not bode well for Scott McAdams, the Democrat running in the race, it does marginalize Miller and leave him in second place.

I am no Lisa Murkowski fan, but I confess this anyway. I will enjoy shoving these arrogant, presumptuous, even contemptuous tweets in his face when he loses. Because it is so utterly entitled.
