If there is any doubt that the political tsunami is large, deep and able to consume anyone the Alaska Senate GOP primary is a wake up call. How can big-government dems think they could survive when this wave is taking out GOP incumbents at an incredible rate. Today the latest victim of the Political Industrial Complex succumbed:
Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski conceded her Senate primary race Tuesday to a political newcomer backed by former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
Murkowski made the concession speech Tuesday night, a full week after the primary.
Good for Murkowski, who was bestowed her seat by her father in a unforgivable moment of nepotism. I am sure Lisa Murkowski is a good person, but she needed to earn the voters’ support. She almost made it, but fell short. She can try again – my old school mate Begich is right for the picking in a few years. And this time she can earn it. Her career is not over.
But understand something DC. We don’t come to praise DC, we come to put it back in its constitutionally defined BOX! All those Dems who are in denial about their future – take notice. The wave is so high it is taking out GOP incumbents – and as many Dems as it can wash out to sea.
