Lisa Murkowski has encouraged all to write about her candidacy. Here's my effort.
I live in Utah, where Bob Bennett, a fine moderate-to-conservative Republican was upset by Mike Lee. He too thought about a write-in candidacy. Unlike Murkowski, he has enough principles to dodge that temptation.
The times they are changing, sang the poet of my generation, and how that has become true. We have a once-in-one hundred years chance to shape our future, the future of my grandchildren.
But Murkowski is too consumed by personal ambition to see that. Splitting a ticket as she wants will elect another tax-and-spend Democrat.
In the mean time, this month, Social Security started running out of money, medicare has been running a deficit for some time, and our national debt balloons.
Just say "no" my Alaskan brothers and sisters, to Lisa Murkowski, and "Yes" to Joe Miller.
