I posted a bit about this latest Alaskan dust-up the other day but here's a recent local newscast from there on this as well. And since Jeanne Devon's blog (The Mudflats) features so prominently, and I've
stolen borrowed her title, here's her take when the story first broke:
Looks like his mentor, Sarah Palin, has taught him the fine art of “keepin’ it classy” on Twitter.
No need to rub your eyes. Yes, Joe Miller just basically called Senator Lisa Murkowski a whore.
Someone must have “handled” our nominee pretty quickly because the tweet was deleted.
Too late. It went out to thousands, and was retweeted before he could scrub it.
I’m thinking that Joe “Tea Party” Miller isn’t particularly concerned about picking up Murkowski voters in the general election. He must not have been paying attention when Lisa Murkowski had a 79% approval rating a few months ago. If you listen really hard, you can hear the stampede as a whole bunch of Republicans deciding that Scott McAdams, the mayor of Sitka just got their vote.
Keep it Classy, Joe.
