So, disregarding the stuff Tom Coburn is saying here (it’s pretty bad and can be refuted fairly easily by anyone who watches the news), we’d like to take a minute to note that Tom Coburn is the new Joe Miller. See, had Miller been elected, he would’ve been the only member of the Senate to rock a beard. But, since Miller blew that opportunity (and is still fighting the results in court for some reason), Coburn has taken up his mantle as the only Senator with a beard. And like Miller’s beard, Coburn’s also has a Twitter account. (thanks corruptpolitics) source
Without criticizing Joe Miller, I would offer him advice. I think it’s the same advice that Fred Thompson and others have offered recently. It should be time to move on.Former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman • Offering Joe Miller the kind of advice that Coleman himself probably needed in the wake of 2008’s Minnesota Senate campaign, which he lost to Al Franken after approximately six months of fighting tooth and nail. (Though, granted, Coleman’s tally was much tighter – literally hundreds of votes) The fact that Coleman is saying that Joe Miller should call it a day in his race against Lisa Murkowski offers a lot of heft which it otherwise wouldn’t have. source (via • follow)
» It gets better for gay teens. And it may get better for openly gay soldiers after the Senate takes up Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repeal. Lisa Murkowski, who looks to be keeping her Senate seat out of Joe Miller’s hands, said today that she wouldn’t vote against repeal, the first Republican to openly pledge to do so. Joe "Connecticut For" Lieberman says that the Democrats have the votes needed to pass repeal, so long as Republicans get as much time to debate the bill as they want. We’ll believe this when we see it, but things are looking good for repeal advocates.
