Lisa Murkowski

I have a new Republican I love: Lisa Murkowski.

She is the incumbent senator from Alaska who Sarah Palin hates. She lost to a bobo named Joe Miller in the Republican primary, then said, “Screw all y’all!” and ran as an independent. Palin, being Palin, cried and whined and thrashed—when watched as Murkowski, it appears, kicked Miller’s ass.

I probably agree with Murkowski on about 20 percent of the issues, but she’s neither crazy nor a wanker. Today she slammed Palin—a fellow Republican, albeit one she loathes—as unworthy of the presidency. Then she added this:

“I will tell you, I am not one of those who wants Obama to fail. If he does well, that means the country’s doing well. We don’t have time as a nation to spend all of what we do blocking. We have got to figure out how we get to a point where we can be sitting around the table and talking about these difficult problems and advancing some solutions.”

Amen, sister. Amen.

  1. Agreed, we’ve got huge problems that need solutions, not further divisions.
    Plus, Palin wasn’t loading her shotgun in a manner that would’ve passed my dads standards.

    See?

  2. THE HYPOCRISY OF PEARLMAN

    You said in this article that “I have make an executive decision: Today is the last time I’m mentioning Sarah Palin on this blog.For now on, she will either be ignored, or referenced solely as The Dolt.” October 1st, 2010 by Jeff Pearlman

    Yet even you cannot ignore the future Commander In Cheif.

  3. If you knew more about her, you wouldn’t be a fan. And she didn’t rail against the GOP – the GOP wanted her to run as a write-in against Miller.

  4. Chief. He recanted approxamately 12 hours later. If I remember correctly it was when he realizes she was actually an intellegent, independent woman and not a dolt at all, or something like that.
