Joe Miller hits the road

(CNN) - Former Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller may be coming to a stage near you.

The Republican has signed with 21st Century Speakers, an agency to arrange paid speaking engagements, according to their website. The group represents other political figures including former president George H.W. Bush, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele.

In a statement obtained by the Anchorage Daily News, Miller said he is "anxious to be able to meet and speak with people around the country about the sort of change that I believe our nation must make to get back on track."

Tea Party-backed Miller lost the 2010 election to incumbent Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski in a contentious race.

  1. Seriously?

    Boy – did he learn from his mentor Palin, or what? Just like her, only in it for the money. Anyone who pays to hear this clown talk (and lie) is a fool! If you want to throw your money away that bad, how about donating it to a worthy charitable cause? I hear New Orleans and Haiti still need a lot of help and now there is Japan. Anyone who pays to hear him talk is just proving that the base of this party is not only uneducated but they are stupid as well.

    As a gesture of goodwill, maybe he will refund the taxpayers of this country for subsidizing his college education at West Point considering the fact we got so little in exchange.

    Ammoral piece of crap.

    It never ceases to amaze me how these failed politicians can cash in on failure.

  4. ConservaFascists/F.U.B.A.R.

    They should be called "21st Century Speakers of the United Corporated States of the country formerly known as America." That has a much better ring to it. What's with these ConservaFascists who lost their 2010 elections trying to stay in the limelight. First Silly Sarah, now Sharon Angle & Joe Miller. Give me a break already.

    What happened to all that furniture he was shopping for for his new Washington office, remember those tweets he had, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...

    If you are dumb enough to pay to go listen to this freak speak, then by all means go have a ball listening to him, but I warn you that it is a waste of money, time and braincells...

    Used to be that losers such as Joe Miller, Sharron Angle, Christine O'Donnell, and Sarah Palin would fade away into obscurity . . . not so with this new Republican Party, where losers become multimillionaires . . . working the speaking circuit, living the good life off of the donations from others. Brings a whole new meaning to welfare queens (and kings).

    He wants to get America back on track? Funny how he can't even define what that is. Being a loser himself, his audiences will be nothing but losers.

    Mr. Miller, as a resident of Eagle River, AK, I ask you one question:

    What has convinced you that American really needs scruffier, more pink-shirt-wearing version of Sarah Palin running around the country making AK look bad? Go back and reopen that law firm.

    You'd think with the speaking fees he could afford a razor ...

    What's he going to speak about? how to lose a sure election? Maybe how to wear blinders to the fact that your style of 'change' isn't what your potential constituents wanted?

    Lose an election, start a career on the speaking circuit.

    Our country was moving along nicely, then the supreme court selected George W Bush in 2000, and we have been on decline since. By having Miller speak, it only shows that the republicans are willing to spend lots of money to listen to stupid baggers named Joe. After all, even Alaskans did not buy into his extremism.

  19. once upon a horse

    so will this be his "do as I say do and not as I do" tour? Anytime a candiadte is so bad that they can lose to a write in candidate in a vote that was not even close really needs to stay at home out of the public eye.

    "Come one come all... under the big-top you'll the most unusual collection of circus freaks ever assembled. We have the handsome man with two-faces – liberal at home and a conservative on the road , a ridiculous billionaire with the World's biggest comb-over – exceeded only by his ego, a good-looking woman with absolutely no concept of World affairs or geography, an amphibian with no measurable level of morality, a real witch who can only speak in hateful sound-bites, a chubby preacher who sold his soul to an evil media mogul, and more...". The GOP has become a giant joke.

    It is nice that the Repubs and TPers are bringing back the small traveling circus to the backroads of America. Of course they still go to the Big City to cash their Speakers Check. PT Barnum would be proud of this type of CLOWN !
