Well if you’re Linda Murkowski, apparently there is no end to just how disgusting one can be.
After being defeated in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Alaska, Lisa refuses to accept the will of the people of the Party, she has decided to run a third Party candidacy against the winner of the primary …. Joe Miller.
Now, as polls show her losing to Miller again, she still refuses to accept the fact that a majority of people, at least in Alaska, don‘t want anything to do with her anymore. So what does she do? She pulls out an old that has the much beloved Ted Stevens endorsing her.
Problem is, Ted Stevens is dead and the endorsement was for Murkowski in a different race, based on different issues, and against different candidates. But most importantly…..TED STEVENS IS DEAD!!!!!
Regardles of what you think of Ted Stevens, he did what he thought was best for his state and delivered. As such, Alaskans kept in office until he was wrongly charged of abuses which he was later found innocent of. The trial was such a sham that the prosecutors involved have been brought before the bench for misconduct. But that was too late for Ted Stevens days in the Senate. Because of the erroneous guilty charge, which came just days before the 2008 election, he lost his bid for reelection.
It wasn’t until after it was discovered that tainted and faulty evidence was used against Stevens, that he was exonerated . But it was too late.
Then after being railroaded, this storied figure in Alaska was abruptly killed in a plane crash this past summer.
Given the situation, it is utterly disgusting and despicable for Lisa Murkowski to come up with a commercial that exploits and misrepresents Stevens for the purpose of holding on to a senate seat that she lost in a primary election. The Stevens family did gave Murkowski the permission to use this endorsement but that does not still make her ad legitimate. This endorsement came to Lisa before she lost the support of the Party that Ted Stevens represented
But Murkowski is a real loser. Perhaps it was her upbringing that has her thinking that she has the right to do anything she wants, regardless of any bounds of decency. Maybe being raised by a father who was long serving Senator from Alaska, gave Lisa a sense of entitlement and the sense of of being special. Then, maybe after being appointed the job of Senator after her father resigned from the position to become Governor Alaska, helped reinforce little Lisa’s sense of entitlement. After all, its not many Daddy’s who can leave their little girls a U.S. Senate seat. There aren’t too many Daddies who would have the nerve to do that either.
But now, after scandal helped to deny Frank Murkowski reelection, Lisa lost her ticket to power. Now that Daddy is in no position to give Lisa everything that her heart desires, she has turned to a dead man to resurrect her dream of being Senator for life. She has unscrupulously taken Ted Stevens and interjected him into the race.
Does she have no shame? Is she so desperate that she has lost her entire sense of decency?
Before his tragic death, politics dragged Ted Stevens through the mud. Out of respect, Lisa Murkowski should stop dragging him through the political mud and allow him to rest with honor and peace.
The episode should give the people of Alaska even more reason to make sure that Lisa is again rejected. As a Republican, Lisa should understand that part of the problem in America today is the entitlement mentality which has given birth to a growing, unaffordable, unsustainable government. Lisa should understand that, not be a part of it. Just because her Daddy gave her the senate seat, doesn’t mean she is entitled to keep it forevermore. It is the people’s seat, not the Murkowski family seat and nothing, including the inappropriate and disrespectful use of the recently departed Ted Stevens, can change that.
