Murkowski is a write in? If so that;s even worse than a NPA, no party affiliation where the usually put the name down the list, lost in a crowd.

The way the FL ballot is they have Rubio-R listed first and Meek-D second. Charlie Crist who is actually polling second place is down the list lost in a group of about 9 NPA...

I'd say he has no chance.

I'd say Murkowski has little chance. Despite the poll.
But I could be wrong.

I remember a sheriff in Chicago (Cook County) about a year ago (maybe two now?) that decided his deputies weren't going to perform evictions. The guy had good reasons but got in a lot of trouble for putting his personal beliefs above the law he was sworn to uphold. This might not be the same guy but this guy is also in Cook County.

In all honesty, maybe if we had more people refusing to do their jobs when they knew what they were doing was wrong then we wouldn't be in this mess.

WikiPropaganda

Wikipedia bars a global warming censor from editing its pages.

Wall Street Journal OCTOBER 21, 2010
online.wsj.com

As the world saw in the Climategate emails last year, global warming advocates have a habit of demonizing anyone who disagrees with them. Now comes the Wikipedia version of this story.

The influential online encyclopedia is written and edited by anyone with an Internet connection, and contributors are supposed to stick to a fair recitation of the facts. So it's news that last week Wikipedia acknowledged it had been hijacked by global warming alarmists who squelched dissenting science. A group of Wikipedia arbitrators banned British blogger William Connolley from participating in any article, discussion or forum dealing with global warming.

Mr. Connolley is a former Green Party candidate for local political office and until 2007 was a climate modeler for the British Antarctic Survey. He is also a missionary for the view that humans cause global warming, and over the years he used his power as an "administrator" on Wikipedia to rewrite the site's global warming articles. He celebrated such controversial scientists as Penn State's Michael Mann, of Climategate fame, and he presented even disputed global warming science as fact. He routinely deleted entries that presented competing views and barred contributors with whom he disagreed. He also smeared scientific skeptics by rewriting their online biographies.

All of this was an embarrassment for Wikipedia as it became more widely known, and last year it stripped Mr. Connolley of his administrator rights. He nonetheless continued his campaign, and last week Wikipedia's group of seven dispute arbitrators banned him from the topic entirely. They also banned other posters who had turned Wikipedia into their global warming propaganda outlet.

This is reminiscent of the Climategate emails, which showed global warming evangelicals using their academic positions to subvert peer review and close publications to dissenters.

Wikipedia's 310 million unique visitors were also being fed only the Connolley-Mann line. That's not a scientific "consensus." It's censorship, and Wikipedia deserves credit for finally, if belatedly, stopping it.

Obama ads on YouTube draw overwhelmingly negative response
..........................................................
By Caroline May - The Daily Caller 10/20/2010
dailycaller.com

Like many, the Obamas have taken to YouTube to encourage voters to get to the polls, but if the comments in reaction to their urging are any indication, the ads will do little to help their cause.

YouTube viewers have made their opinions known on the message boards en masse, disparaging and voicing their displeasure with the Obama administration.

The most recent Obama ad, released Monday and visible on his YouTube channel, features a close up of the first couple, Barack with his American flag lapel pin and Michelle in a dark cardigan, directly addressing their viewers.

“Hello everybody it’s Barack and Michelle,” Obama begins.

“Election Day is almost here and people are getting fired up,” Mrs. Obama cheers.

“And we need you to stay fired up, all the way until November 2nd,” President Obama adds.

Their encouragement is falling on hostile ears, if the popularity of comments from the likes of TeSigoSenor are any indication: “This encourages me more to vote Republican or anyone? else against their policies…Mr President, please go back to the White House and think about getting jobs for the people of America. We are hurting….we are pleading.”

The sheer number of negative responses to the ad makes any positive reactions, within the more than 550 comments, practically invisible.

A week earlier, Mrs. Obama appeared in an online plea again for votes — to more vitriol and harsh comments. MrEbonyman, for example, like most, did not pull any punches. “Honey i will call you a fat pig right to your fat face. When a person tells me i need to stop smoking i tell them they need to stop feeding their fat ass,” the commentator wrote in reference to Mrs. Obama’s health campaign.

NZKOF was more direct. “Just? say No to Democrats and Obama control,” he wrote.

About the Tea Party movement -- I have no difficulty understanding the call towards limited government and a stricter interpretation of the Constitution. It seems to be a simple, straightforward sentiment, fully in line with American traditions. The size and complexity of our government are out of control. If there weren't a Tea Party movement, it would need to be invented. The fact that some of the candidates are not as smooth as the "normal" overpracticed and overscripted professional politicians does not necessarily mean that they are bad. In fact it may even make them more attractive.
