    Sarah Palin: “Hey Lisa Murkowski – I can see 2022 from my house”

    Sarah Palin: “Hey Lisa Murkowski – I can see 2022 from my house”

    2022 Alaska Senate battle almost certain, but will it be Palin or someone else?

    Lisa Murkowski voted against closing debate on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.

    That vote, has it not passed, would have killed the nomination.

    Murkowski said she still hasn’t decided how she will vote on the final vote, but the damage is done.

    Unless something crazy happens between today and tomorrow (always a possibility), Kavanaugh will be confirmed, no thanks to Murkowski regardless of how she votes in the final vote.

    Sarah Palin issued a tweet suggesting a possible challenge to Murkowski in 2022, when Murkowski is up for reelection:

    2022 is a long way away, and Palin didn’t explicitly say she’d challenge Murkowski. And the tweet was issued from Palin’s account, but not by Palin herself (tweets by Palin herself are signed “SP”). But it’s hard to imagine the tweet went out without her approval.

    But expect some Republican to challenge Murkowski after this betrayal.

    Of course, Murkowski has been challenged before, when Joe Miller beat her in the Republican primary in 2010 and she won as a write-in candidate.

    Stay tuned.

    Looking at this picture reminds me that Hillary was never attractive, ever.

    I was wrong about one prediction: I assumed the officeholders Collins and Murkowski would both vote yes because of the possible political backlash. I didn’t anticipate Murkowski to vote the other way. It was always a crapshoot which way Flake would go (in this case, I guess he figured a yes vote would secure his post-Senate earnings).

    But I was right about a couple of other things: it will be political suicide for Murkowski (the backlash started instantly, as this article shows).

    Also, the political fence-sitting posers announced their intent as soon as Kavanaugh had 50 votes. The point is to signal early for them so they can get the maximum benefit from their posturing.

    I still somewhat dread the final vote and chances for more intrigues, but I’m looking forward to this finally being over.

    I doubt Palin can win because Alaska is such corrupt state with a large number of idiots on the oil dole (if they elected her they would still get it) but she could endorse another to get rid of the murkowski pig.
