Not that it really matters whether the establishment right wing crazy or the tea party right wing crazy wins the day in Alaska, but…
I was intrigued by the fact that Joe Miller is making an interesting article in his federal lawsuit challenging the way ballots are counted in Alaska. He is claiming that any person writing in Murkowski’s name with the incorrect spelling was actually voting against her, because a number of folks called some right wing radio hosts and said that was what they intended to do.
Odd that they just wouldn’t vote for Miller, but, consider the following.
Everyone knew that Miller was going to file this lawsuit, assuming Murkowski won. Everyone knew that the spelling issue would be one of the claims he would make. Is it a stretch to suspect that those callers were plants by the Miller campaign to sow the factual seeds for their later legal claim? Personally, I don’t think it is, but maybe I’m paranoid.
