Murkowski Concedes

More proof that polling and predictive punditry is useless. Despite glowing assurances Murkowski was going to win the GOP Senate nom in Alaska, Tea Party nutcake Miller took the prize. I don't have much to say about this. Think Wonkette has the best take.
But anyway! Congratulations Alaska, you voted for the guy who has promised to stop all federal spending, forever.

You know what this means for Alaska, which is literally the welfare state, right? It means Alaska will become an enormous icy death colony inhabited only by stray boys and cats — a terrible land ruled by Sarah Palin and her inbred descendants and terrorized by roaming scooter armies of Glenn Beck lepers. It means Alaska will finally have “honor,” and Sarah Palin finally has a “win” right there in the state she occasionally visits between television appearances and hair appointments. God Bless you Joe Miller, amen.
I'm not surprised at how well the TP candidates are doing in the primaries. GOP clearly underestimated the depth of their low info constituents anger when they riled them up last year over health care reform. Guess they expected the anger to turn only against Dems. Certainly don't think they expected the purity tests. Question now is will Murkowski voters actually come out and vote for this nutcase or just stay home?
