Alaska Dispatch" as the worst offenders.
Then Joe held up a picture that a ten year old boy drew for him claiming "this is the kind of support we have been receiving" and then stomped away from the podium ignoring calls from the Alaska media of "WTF?"
I will have video of the news conference up later including an exclusive interview with Lisa Murkowski about Joe's blackout of local Alaska media.
By the way close up, Miller's beard is even more pathetic than it appears in pictures.
P.S. When Miller mentioned that there was one "blog" that he was going to identify as "really crossing the line," I have to admit I had a momentary increase in my pulse as I was thinking "Oh boy, oh boy, Miller is going to complain about ME to the national media!" But sadly he identified Alaska Dispatch instead.
Of course most people probably realize that Alaska Dispatch is NOT a blog, they are a news website. But Miller's an idiot so what do you expect?
Update: It looks like the Tea Party Express might be keeping their powder dry concerning Teabagger Joe.
A national tea party group supporting Joe Miller in the Alaska Senate race has decided to hold off on running ads in the contest until nearer the election.
Hmm I wonder if now that all of this new information about Miller's background has come to the surface that the Teabaggers may have realized that they bought themselves yet another terribly flawed candidate?
We know the political rule of thimb don't we? "If Sarah picks'em, we don't want'em!"
Update 2: Here is the Murkowski interview.
It looks like Miller just handed Murkowski a nice little gift.
Update 3: Here is the ADN report which includes the money quote:
"We've drawn a line in the sand. You can ask me about background, you can ask me about personal issues. I'm not going to answer," the Miller said.
I believe he followed that statement with the phrase, "Nanny, nanny boo boo."
Update 4: I actually arrived part way into the Anchorage Chamber debate which took place immediately before Miller's amazing press conference where he said he was going to take his ball and go home, becasue the local media is asking him too many hard questions, that hurt his feelings.
Anyhow one of the questions posed to the panel, which included all three candidates, was "Which Senator do you most admire?"
Murkowski kind of hemmed and hawed before saying that of course she admired Ted Stevens, and then named a few others who were Democrats that she also enjoyed working with. McAdams identified Senator Inouye from Hawaii, a fellow Democrat from another very new state, and perhaps Senator Stevens very best friend. However Joe the Teabagger, first said that since he disagreed with almost ALL of Congress it would be hard to think of one, but then volunteered that he greatly admired JIM "Freaking" DEMINT!
In case you are wondering why that name sounds familiar, as if you have just heard it in the news recently, it may be because Demint made the following statement just last week:
DeMint said if someone is openly homosexual, they shouldn't be teaching in the classroom and he holds the same position on an unmarried woman who's sleeping with her boyfriend — she shouldn't be in the classroom.
So of the 100 Senators to choose from, Joe Miller picks the homophobe who wants school administrators to refuse to hire "the gays" and also wants them to ask female teachers if they are screwing their boyfriends so they know if they should fire them or not. THAT is the type of Senator that Joe Miller "admires."
But hey, don't you local journalists ask him any questions about it! Joe is WAY too cool for you guys!
He only talks to the national media don'tcha know. And by NATIONAL Media he of course means Fox News.
