A write in campaign? Stupid is as stupid does. If she had a brain she'd run as an independent or should have after reading the tea leaves. But, it's time for new blood anyway.

Well that's a ridiculous way to view it.

Murkowski ran to be on the REPUBLICAN ticket. She LOST that primary and lost the privledge to be on the Republican ticket. As such, she has decided to do a write in campaign making herself a direct OPPONENT to the Republican ticket and thus to the Republican Party that's supporting him. As such, its rather ridiculous to have an opponent of your party in positiosn of power within said party.

Where are they denying Murkowski the ability to run? Where are they denying people the ability to vote for Murkowski? How in any way shape or form how the party handles itself and its appointments "anti-democratic"?

Can you show how they are "anti-democratic"? Or just explain how you reached that conclusion?

I guess that is how a non-resident might view things. i see lame duck as a petulant whiner who thinks she should have not only inherited the seat but keep it for life
