Jonathan Karl sent his link to this news via Twitter, so here’s the gist:
Today, Palin is out with a recorded telephone message on behalf of Murkowski’s opponent, Joe Miller, that portrays her insufficiently conservative. In the message, Palin praises Miller — a Tea Party favorite who suggested, in an interview on Top Line, that unemployment benefits “are not constitutionally authorized” — but is most emphatic when she attacks Murkowski.“Joe is a common sense conservative who understands the founders wrote the constitution to limit the power of the federal government. He’s got the backbone to confront Obama’s radical agenda,” Palin says. “By contrast, Lisa Murkowski has voted with Democrats more than any Republican up for re-election this year. She’s waffled on the repeal of Obamacare, co-sponsored cap-and-trade and voted for TARP. Joe Miller has the right ideas for Alaska. Join me in voting for Joe Miller on August 24.”
To the left of this blog, you can see Governor Palin’s tweets and she’s enjoyed this debate (and debacle) tremendously. Murkowski’s dad? Check. Next ass to kick: His daughter.
