He’s baaaaack! Joe “Cuff Him!" Miller has filed papers for another Senate run in Alaska next year, where he’ll take on incumbent Democrat Mark Begich. In 2010, Miller became a unique example of the Tea Party activist who knocked off an establishment Republican in the primaries but then lost to that same Republican in the general election (Lisa Murkowski launched a successful write-in campaign to retain her seat). Begich is considered extremely vulnerable this cycle; he won the seat in 2008 after an very close race with Ted "Series of Tubes" Stevens. (Photo credit: AP) source

This actually does raise the legitimate question as to how direct of a democracy the founding fathers really intended to create. Joe Miller, a Tea Party candidate for the Senate in Alaska a few years back, was a proponent of this plan as well. He didn’t win; it seems that asking people to elect you to the Senate so you can take away their right to elect other people to the Senate in the future isn’t a winning campaign strategy (although Miller seems to be mulling a comeback, so what do we know). Anyway, this Georgia proposal will almost certainly go absolutely nowhere. source

In his first interview after announcing his concession, in the very first question, Miller dropped the kind of land mine that ensures it’ll be hard for him to be elected dog catcher in Fairbanks. Seriously? You’re not going to call because you don’t have her number? Stop being a loser and call the woman already. E-mail her if you have to. Use Skype or FaceTime or something. Oh wait … see this page right here? There’s a list of all of her offices, with their phone numbers. It’s a holiday weekend, but we bet that if you called one of those offices on Monday morning, Joe, they might get you in touch with the Senator. Just a hunch.

The time has come to accept the practical realities of the current legal circumstances.
Joe Miller • Admitting what’s been clear for about two months – he lost. What’s annoying about the phrasing of this statement was not that it congratulated Lisa Murkowski for her win, but suggested that he was only giving up because he didn’t stand a chance of winning an appeal. As does this phrase: “I accept that criticism knowing often doing what is right is not what is easy or popular. We were not successful in that endeavor, but it was a worthwhile one.” Get over yourself, Joe. You lost. Be a man instead of a jerk and call Lisa. It’s unbelievable that you haven’t been willing to call her to congratulate her. source (viafollow)

Joe Miller for some reason won’t quit Alaska Senate race (still!)

  • yeah … Miller has confirmed that he won’t contest the confirmation of Lisa Murkowski’s November election win, because she won.
  • … but Because he for some reason can’t give in easily, Miller will be filing a lawsuit in federal court. Dude, just give it up already. You lost. source

» But why? His explanation: “After careful consideration and seeking the counsel of people whose opinion I respect and trust, I have decided that the federal case must go forward,” Miller said. “The integrity of the election is vital and ultimately the rule of law must be our standard.” Dude. You need new friends. At this rate, you won’t get elected for dog catcher.

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 (viafollow)

Democrats make headway on DADT repeal

  • NO Murkowski won’t vote against Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repeal source

» 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.
