RUMBLE IN ALASKA

Palin Won’t Let Up on Murkowski

Could things get any uglier in Alaska? Sarah Palin weighed in on Sunday night’s debate between the state’s senatorial contenders, slamming incumbent Lisa Murkowski in a Facebook post titled “Lisa’s Gall vs. Miller’s Honor.” Palin didn’t deign to use Murkowski’s full name, referring only to the “sitting senator” or the “incumbent senator.” Palin wrote that she had “never seen a candidate stoop as low as was seen last night in Alaska’s senatorial debate.” In Sunday night’s debate, Murkowski questioned her opponent Joe Miller’s military record—he is a graduate of West Point and served in Desert Storm—but ethics was the main topic of the debate. Miller admitted he was suspended from his job as an attorney after he used government computers to conduct private polling.
