Things are getting interesting in the land of half term governors:
Republican leaders are angry with Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) for jeopardizing their chances of winning the Senate.
Murkowski’s decision to mount a write-in campaign risks splitting the Republican vote between two candidates and could cost her party a safe GOP seat.
“I am bothered by anything that makes it less likely that we can elect a Republican, especially in a state where we had every hope of electing one,” Senate GOP Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) said Monday.
But what I find interesting is that this is the same GOP that cheered on Joe Lieberman’s run for Senate in 2006. They laughed at the netroots, accusing us of creating the problem with Ned Lamont. Well now the GOP has a much bigger Lieberman problem, with Murkowski only being one part of it. You also have O’Donnell and numerous others around the country. As matter of fact the GOP’s Lieberman problem has most likely cost them any chance of regaining control of the Senate. This is Karma in its purest form.
