Apparently the other statement didn’t do much good for her poll numbers:

“I have caucused with the Republicans in the past, I will be caucusing with the Republicans when I go back in January,” said Murkowski in a phone interview, responding to recent news reports speculating whether she’d buck the party, and comments Murkowski made over the weekend saying that if elected, she would represent Alaska before the Republican Party.

Is it going to be enough to make a difference? I wouldn’t bet a whole lot of money on it, but I must confess I like the spelling bee commercial, I think it’s cute and effective.

Inquiring minds want to know

Hey ma-3 its your choice.

Cooking supper right now so only time for quick summary

About 350 people attended.

It was great to see friends who I was on the Bus with, they were rather surprised to see me and I’m flattered to be remembered.

Lots of candidates including Marty Lamb (ma-3) Jen Caissie (Gov Counsel) Rodney Josephson (ma rep) Lew Evangelidis and Keith Nicholas & Bill Campbell and I’m sure I missed a few others.

About 30 anti-tea party protesters showed up, apparently some were a group of McGovern Supporters who regularly dog Marty Lamb. Many were 20 somethings wearing masks. The reason for a Mask became apparent when one of them assaulted a passing motorist who beeped support for the tea party resulting in a call to the police and the officers keeping the counter protesters a distance away.

There was no stage they performed on a small lip at the monument at Lincoln square.

The crowd seemed to enjoy themselves.

After the assault the police officers were very much in evidence

Oddly enough Jim McGovern scheduled an event for directly after so you had some mixture of the new people and the old in the end.

The thing that astounded me more than anything else wasn’t the left not taking off hats for the pledge or the national anthem, but the dancing around by the left while Debbie Lee gold star mother talked about the action where her son was killed in Iraq. Rather disgraceful.

I will upload photos and video as time permits

UPDATE: Here is John Weston on the assault

Update 2: Pitchers we’ve got Pitchers!

If you have to describe the mood in this state for democrats FEAR is the best word to describe it.

It is palatable, sitting democrats tout their conservative records, statewide office holders duck debates and people who have had term after term spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to keep seats that they haven’t had to fight to keep for years.

I talked to a statehouse contact this weekend and the amount of panic in the statehouse (read Democratic party) of what the results Tuesday will bring and palatable fear of the voter.

The famous verse is “Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; wisdom and instruction fools despise.” Proverbs 1:7. Fear and respect of the voter is the beginning of wisdom for elected officials who somehow have forgotten that their jobs and prerogatives are completely dependent on the decision of the voters to send them back.

The fault of the state of affairs, is frankly the voters of the state. We have had the power for decades and convinced ourselves we did not.

In a republic we always get the government we deserve, may we deserve better than what we have.

Update: A expression of the panic democrats are in is the “wingnut” mailer from Jim McGovern. Unlike most democrats he has NOT run away from his far left roots and even Marty Lamb (and I ) give him credit for that, but like almost every democrat he has found the need to go not just negative but CRAZY negative:

Panic Attacks from Jim McGovern

The real irony of the attack comes on page two, with a particular picture:

An opponent of the Arizona immigration law calls Marty Lamb a Nazi

The photo on the flyer comes from the Tea Party protest of the Worcester City Council’s attempt to boycott Arizona for attempting to enforce immigration law. At that particular protest said protester in the photo got into Marty Lamb’s face and called this relative of Holocaust survivors…wait for it a Nazi!

I was shocked at the story and interviewed Marty about it BACK IN MAY months ago, but the MSM didn’t find enough irony of a tolerant liberal calling a Jewish candidate a Nazi interesting enough to report on.

McGovern apparently has no sense of Irony.
