Murkowski's Lead Grows; Take That Sarah!!
Looks like Republican senator Lisa Murkowski is going to be re-elected as a write-in, despite opposition from rival Sarah Palin. News reports state that Murkowski has about a 1700 vote lead over Miller, with thousands of write-in ballots yet to be counted. It's anticipated that most of the write-in ballots will go for Murkowski. The Tea Party tactic to jam the write-in ballot boxes with ficticious names to thwart Murkowski seems to have back-fired. The Palin mystique further erodes among people whom are paying attention. Also, there are news reports today that G.W. Bush made private statements to friends that he thought Palin was a terrible choice for McCain and that she was completely unqualified. Good luck on G.W. admitting to this in public.
