Nation's last Senate battle enters a new arena

Washington (CNN) - When will the nation's last, nasty Senate battle end? Based on one side's determination, there may actually be no end in sight.

Over one month after Election Day, the bitter back-and-forth between Republicans Lisa Murkowski, the incumbent senator, and opponent Joe Miller enters a new arena on Wednesday: a state court.

    Haven't we all see this Joe character before ? You know ... Joe the plumber ? It seems like most of the folks that have been paraded out by the great and powerful Sarah are doofies, oddballs, and crackpots. "Where do they all come from"?

    The business of politics gets dirtier by the minute.

    Lisa Murkowski – even though I favor her over Miller High Life ONLY because PALIN had to put her two cents in – has a vicious STARE!!! Her eyes don't smile at all in any of her photos – SCARY!! She will WIN though and she will be LQQKed at to see how she governs!!

    This takes sore loser into Norm Coleman territory. Way to go Joe Miller. Are Alaskans paying for your ego here? I'd love to know what the good people of Alaska think about this.

    So, Joe Miller wants to ignore the fact, apparently, that Murkowski won the popular vote. This from a guy who admitted to
    ethics violations and received $7,000 in farm subsidies in the 1900s, which belies the fact that he is a tea party guy who
    wants government spending decreased. Now he is "relying on the Courts": Sounds a bit like Bush/Gore and you know
    how that turned out. Majority lost! I hope they don't lose again to another loser.

    What is sad about this is the fact that even if the ballots for Murkowski are spelt wrong, the voters still voted for her!!!! Mr. Miller is trying to win on a technicallity, and literally steal the election away. If he was a man of integrity he would bow out, and not continue to fight against the voter of Alaska's wishes.

    "But even if all the challenged ballots are thrown out – an unlikely scenario to many observers – Miller would still trail the senator by just over 2,100 votes."
    Besides a much needed shave, Miller needs to get a life, and a job ... preferably NOT on the government entitlements payroll he spent months ranting against.

    Step aside Joey and try and act like you care about the people of your state.

    Is it something in the water in Alaska that just won't allow LOSERS to go quietly, and gracefully into the night?
