Palins help Miller's final fundraising push

Washington (CNN) - Sarah Palin's support for Republican Senate hopeful Joe Miller became a true family act on Friday, just days before the Alaska primary.

Palin, who endorsed Miller in June, posted another letter of support on her Facebook page Friday, and the former Alaska governor's husband Todd penned a fundraising letter that was mailed to Tea Party Express supporters.

Noting that he rarely sends fundraising letters, Todd said the effort is designed to raise $150,000 in the next 48 hours.

"A critical election for U.S. Senate is just 4 days away and constitutional conservatives across America need to rally together to support Conservative Republican Joe Miller for U.S. Senate in Alaska," Todd said. "Joe is up against the political establishment and special interests in Alaska, and I can tell you first hand that my own family has had to face such battles before."

In June, the Tea Party Express endorsed Miller in a bid to oust an incumbent Republican senator, Lisa Murkowski, who is part of the Senate GOP leadership.

The fundraising plea was echoed in Sarah Palin's Facebook page.

"Joe's campaign needs to raise about $30,000 for a crucial final media buy. We can do it if we all pull together."

The Alaska GOP primary takes place August 24.

    Joe needs to raise about $30,000 so that he can run an ad campaign tailored to inflame the right with more parsed truths about President Obama and the Democrats. The gullibility of the right in this country is absolutely stunning.

    Anyone that choose Sarah Palin as a running mate is no genius, especially when it didn't work.

    Sarah Palin is all over the place with her mouth in everything when is she home with her children and her husband. She is only making enemies when she speaks on sensitive issues and not making sense.

    Her kids need her she is missing out on their formative years wonder what the first family's children would be like with all the drama that her daughter has created. That's if she is running for the President of the United States.

    She criticizes this President and what he does but never once has she come up with any suggestions and she really crossed the line supporting Dr. Laura she can not have views like that and want to be the Commander-in-Chief.

    Good luck bimbo! You are 0-5 in August and from what I see from the Alaska newspapers you are not too popular back home either. Soon you won't have one single state to move to. Maybe you will go live in Russia and leave us alone.
    BTW I hear you and little girl beck are coming to DC on 8/.28. Just on the same date that MLK Jr gave his famous speech. There are 365 days in the year., You two cretins had to pick that one to spew your hate and stupidity.
    I hear that counter demonstrations are seeking permits to disrupt your little hate party. See ya next Saturday!

    Keep riling up the left wing minions CNN!

    While hating anything Sarah Palin says, a lot of misguided Liberal women are praising Imam Raul and the building of his mosque 500 ft. from the WTC site were 3000 Americans were murdered!

    Those supporting this IMAM must also support Sharia Law where women are viewed as second class citizens, demeaned and even stoned to death for being unfaithful to their husbands! Where are all the so-called Liberal Feminists??? Oh that's right.... They're bashing Palin and spewing their hate! Incredible!!

    After researching both Joe Miller and Lisa Murkowski, I note the following:

    A) Joe Miller looks good, however he has two major drawbacks:
    a)Endorsed by the Tea Party Express
    b)Endorsed by Sarah Palin
    B)Lisa Murkowski looks even better, because:
    a)She is considered a moderate Republican
    b)She is considered a RINO
    As an Independent (No Party) ordinary American Citizen, I hereby endorse Lisa Murkowski because she has experience, appears to exercise reasonable judgement and hopefully will recognize past errors and not repeat those errors. Should she be defeated by Joe Miller, it is my sincere hope that she will consider a run as an Independent (No Party) candidate or consider becoming a Democrat if possible.
