Alaska: Another out of touch sore loser

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski said Monday she feels that Republican leaders have turned their backs on her as she mounts a write-in bid to try to hold onto her seat.

Murkowski, who lost last month's GOP primary to tea party-supported Joe Miller, told The Associated Press that the focus in Washington seems to be more on "adding numbers to the team" and less on the quality of a candidate.

"We all know that Washington, D.C., is far too partisan right now," she said in an interview from Anchorage. "And I think when we allow the numbers to dominate over quality, I don't think that that helps us."

When Murkowski conceded the race Aug. 31, support within the Republican establishment began shifting to Miller, a self-described "constitutional conservative" who believes the federal government is on the brink of bankruptcy, spending must be reined in, and Alaska must be given greater control over its resources to help wean it off what he calls its over-dependency on the government.

This woman was appointed to an empty senate seat by her father, the then governor of Alaska.

She doesn't seem to understand that most people never accepted that appointment as either legitimate or ethical (although it may have been technically legal).

The woman is obviously too arrogant and too stupid to be in the senate.

By the way, senator, the leaders of your party did not "turn their backs" on you. They are simply respecting the choice of their primary voters (something you pledged to do, before you lost).
