Murky: My Pals In The Senate Think I Can Win This Write In Thing

This is why letting her keep her Ranking Member position was such a horrible idea, she's turning it into a campaign talking point.

Murkowski, a GOP senator from Alaska who decided to pursue an independent write-in bid for reelection after losing her Republican Senate primary, said that her colleagues' decision to allow her to keep her position as ranking member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee was an "affirmation."

Murkowski said Republican senators "recognize, 'You know what? Lisa might be a risk-taker, but she's got a real shot at coming back here, and it only makes good sense that we would not want to be so punitive that she would be discouraged by the actions of her colleagues,' " she said in a Q-and-A with Time magazine published Friday.

.."This was an affirmation of the relationship that I've built over the past eight years with the people that I work with," she said. "As difficult as the politics are, as awkward as the situation is, I had really believed that my friends would recognize that what I'm doing is for my state."

Love the implied threat there...be too punitive and who knows what might happen, you know like voting with the Democrats in the lame duck.

Joe Miller is still raising money.

In other RINOrific news...Sources are telling Jim Geraghty that's it's 50/50 on whether or not Mike Castle runs a write in campaign for the Senate in Delaware.

What these sore loser are saying is, voters only count when they win and the party is great as long as it's writing checks and providing support. There's very little that can be done since it's state laws that provide these opportunities but the party needs to make it clear that they spoiler candidacies will be fought hard and that those that wage them have zero future.

We all cheered Lieberman when he ran against Ned Lamont after his primary defeat but at least their was a bigger issue involved...support for the war in Iraq and the wider war on terror.

Murky (and perhaps Castle) are just doing it because they think they are so damn important. Well, they aren't.

The GOP establishment would be going crazy if tea party candidates decided to run 3rd party campaigns in the general and rightly so. Now they need to show the same anger towards their own.
