He's on a Bridge to Nowhere

You gotta love this.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Republican Gov. Frank Murkowski, stung by accusations of arrogance and stubbornness, lost his bid for a second term Tuesday after polling last in a three-way GOP primary.

Sarah Palin, a former Wasilla mayor, won the Republican nomination for governor after capturing 51 percent of the vote. Former state legislator John Binkley came in second with 30 percent and Murkowski polled just 19 percent.

“We expected to win, we didn’t win, so we’ll support the nominee,” Murkowski said after arriving at election headquarters to concede.
So Mr. Bridge to Nowhere is at the end of the road on his political career. Couldn't have happened to a more deserving guy and I think this says something about the national digust with incumbents when a guy as connected as Murkowski can't even make a decent showing in a party primary.

I think it's going to be a very interesting election this year.

I agree, it will be very interesting and I hope the outcome makes us all have big happy faces on when it's over. Now, how the hell can we get Ted Stevens out of the Senate?

I've got a long list of politicians I'd like to see dumped from both houses PoP. Starting with Mark Souder.

No incumbent can count on his seat this season Lester. At least I hope not.
