Tuesday, October 09, 2018

Party Chairman Tuckerman Babcock says the committee could decide to issue a statement. Or he says it could withdraw support of Murkowski, encourage party officials to look for a replacement and ask that she not seek re-election as a Republican.

Hmmm, a party that demands a lock-stepping of ideology. That seems familiar. Where have we seen that before?..

"Now comes the part where they start to eat their own."

All parties inevitably do. Republicans are currently in a position where they can afford to eat their own more than Democrats can.

This is how Republicans play take no prisoners class warfare, while Democrats scratch their butts and politely request a piece of the pie for themselves.

No, you scream hysterically while you claw on doors, block elevators, and harass people in restaurants.

"Marjorie Strayer insisted she was just a Virginian on vacation in Miami. She had come to the downtown Stephen P. Clark Government Center to watch the Dade County vote recount -- something to do before the trip to the Seaquarium. But Strayer, it turns out, is a top aide to New Mexico's Republican congresswoman, Heather Wilson, and was one of hundreds of paid GOP crusaders who descended on South Florida last Wednesday to protest the state's recounts. "The system is unfair, inaccurate, fraught with human error!" Strayer cried.

What the world watched was a GOP melee. When Geller walked out of the room with a sample ballot, the crowd accused him of stealing a real one and responded as if he had just nabbed a baby for its organs. Geller says he was pushed by two dozen protesters screaming, "I'm gonna take you down!" Luis Rosero, a Democratic observer, claims he was punched and kicked. Republicans dispute the charges, but video cameras caught scenes of activism that had morphed into menace. The organizers in the RV outside, who GOP protesters have told TIME were led by hardball Washington strategist Roger Stone, had phone banks churning out calls to Miami Republicans, urging them to storm downtown. (Stone could not be reached for comment.) One of them was a fire fighter, Rob Eltus, 45: "What Americans are finally seeing is Republicans fed up.""

Maybe Murkowski should place a call to the DNC and switch parties.

Alaska is a very politically diverse and independent state. They have an Independent governor, they voted to legalize marijuana, etc. I don't think the GOP would be served well by pushing for an extremist candidate. So i hope they do it.

Murkowski will be fine whatever she does, she is like Bernie in that enough people in AK love her (and her dad, Frank) that while she doesn't win a majority of the votes, she wins enough to get elected. She is only the second US Senator to be elected as a write-in candidate which is no easy task.

This is just window dressing, Murkowski will shrug off whatever happens and be fine.

Repubs cheat the entire election system, defy the founding fathers, have a minority of approval but a majority of power, and then complain that people are upset about it.

- defy the founding fathers

And ONLY defensive of republicans. And relentlessly attacking the people who's positions most closely match his supposed priorities.

Easily explained if he's a paid astroturf troll.

Click on his username and look at his daily posts. Tally them up - posts attacking dems, posts attacking republicans, posts promoting progressivism.

Take a look at tell me whether its the post history of an actual progressive or a paid conservative astroturf shill.
