Joe Miller makes noise about launching campaign for the Senate. Mark Begich cannot wipe the smile off his face at the news.

Courtesy of HuffPo: 

After his failed Senate bid in 2010, Tea Party favorite Joe Miller is considering running against Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) next year in what he calls a choice between the "easy lies of an insider politician or the hard truth of a reformer." 

In a Sunday blog post on his website, Miller explained why he may run again, confirming speculation that he still has his eyes on Capitol Hill. 

"Serious times call for bold measures. With the re-election of Barack Obama, our very way of self-government is in peril. The Constitution is under attack, the value of human life degraded, religious liberties are threatened, the Second Amendment is increasingly in jeopardy, and the right to protection from unlawful search and seizure is giving way to a virtual surveillance State," Miller writes. "We need a candidate in 2014 who will join reformers like Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz to confront President Obama, not one who will cut a deal to negotiate the terms of our surrender to his radical socialist agenda." 

In his blog post, Miller said he has yet to make a final decision on a run, and is weighing financial support as well as conservative backing for his potential challenge to the GOP "status quo." 

"I have been a Republican for most of my adult life," Miller writes. "But I am under no illusions about the Republican Establishment’s failure to confront the problems facing the country. The status quo is not a viable option."

As many of you know the Alaska Republican Party is in complete meltdown right now, and that is in large part because of Joe Miller's attempt to take it over

If Miller is actually delusional enough to seek the GOP nomination it will result in the kind of political cage match that will send popcorn sales through the roof.

And if he decides instead to run as an Independent or AIP candidate? (Shh, don't say that out loud or we will never get that lucky!)

In my opinion Begich is currently seen as wallpaper here in Alaska, and COULD be beaten in the next election. BUT if his opponent is Miller, or a Republicans that emerges from a pitch battle with Miller for the nomination, then our lone Democratic Senator's chances are greatly improved.

And yes of course I will vote for Mark. After all what choice do I really have?

However if his opponent is Joe Miller, I will do a hell of a lot more than simply vote for him, I will help to destroy Miller and hopefully help to send his vaguely bearded ass to jail. (Yes Joe, I and others know that you received illegal funds during your last campaign!)

    I wish people would stop saying things like "what choice do I have" when it comes to voting for Begich. You DO have a choice, you can write in someone truly worthy of the job or you can leave the little dot blank. You have choices. Life's to short to vote for candidates that share neither your political agenda, nor your political philosophy.

    1. Yeah it was that kind of thinking that helped Miller win the 2010 nomination in the first place.

      Or have you forgotten the lessons of the 2000 presidential election?

      I have heard GOPPERS use this same dumb logic and look how bound up they are! Begich is who we voted for, get off your ass and get involved with him and his office in D.C. if you have issues. I am sick of people thinking after they elect someone that their job is done. It is a dog eat dog world in D. C.

      You are spot on Gyyphen. It was that kind of thinking that got MIller as far as he did. And his supporters are mostly conspiracy nut jobs.

      Anonymous 9:48, it is “too short” not “to short.” — and, leaving the dot blank is a vote for the other side. Take a class in logic.

      Voting should not be a choice between the "lesser of two evils" . Joe MIller was assisted in his ascendency by Scott McAdams supporters and it backfired on them, costing Murkowski the primary and McAdams the general. It was taken for granted that McAdams could beat MIller, but not Murkowski, and at the end of the day he could best neither one.

      I do hope he tries again, he seems to actually be a Democrat

    Wonderful! He is so entertaining, being both dim and ambitious. Speaking of which, surely we will be treated to some more pageant walkin' behavior from Miss "Look I'm Finally Really Really Thin and Who Cares if I Have an Old Lady Flat Butt - These Stripes Made You Look Away From the Young Stuff!"

    I have always voted for Mark Begich and will continue to. Cannot imagine how and why Miller would think he could beat him! Amazing!

  7. Gee, Joe, that there stubbly look was real stylish in about 1985 on Miami Vice. Fancy yourself a suave and debonair Sonny Crockett, do you? I'll bet you still use your Stubble Device electric razor, don't you?

    Sadly, no matter how stubbly your mug, you are just an ill-groomed repellent, lazy, shifty weasel with moronic, cliched political views.

    As we have witnessed with the reincarnation of no less a sleazeball than Mark Sanford, there's always enough dumb ass around to resurrect a cretin. Be careful, Alaska. This POS is dangerous until he is jailed.

    Recalling his dodgy employment history and sketchy finances, he probably needs a job and this is how he plans to get his hands on some easy money.

    If there is proof, don't just use political blackmail. If Miller did something illegal, then his arrest should occur whether or not he decides to run again.

    1. Not the way it works up here.

      If he stays out of politics, it is likely nothing will ever happen. But if he gets back in...

      The FBI already knows, but they do not go after every case unless they know they can make the case or if by not doing so there will be further criminal activity.

      I agree, with your sentiment, Gryphen, but that applies to probably all states, all the way from small communities to the top of the political spectrum.

  12. He makes a good point. There are a number of morons in high elected office at this point and they are actively trashing everything, so why shouldn't he join the party? Shouldn't Bachman, Cruz and the like embolden destructive idiots everywhere? I don't see why not. Plus, it's pretty good money.

    And, given the incredible amount of money the Millers received from the permanent fund and Sarah’s “please love me and I will give every man woman and child in Alaska $1200” bucks in 2008 (more than $30,000 in the MIller family!) they still mooched off Denali care for their kids health insurance (despite Miller’s “I am not a socialist!” and “ObamaCare is evil” memes, Miller is a non-candidate except in his own delusional mind. He should be in jail. Why hasn’t the state of Alaska convicted him for welfare fraud?

      Sorry Alaska but the crossed eye Wasilla retard fell out of love for Alaska and is now courting Arizona.

      But if you reopen the Palin family Alaska Film Tax Credit account, I'm sure Sarah may have a change of heart.

    Oregon 9-year-old killed by security guard practicing holstering weapon

    Authorities in Oregon are considering whether to charge an off-duty security guard who accidentally shot and killed his girlfriend’s 9-year-old daughter while practicing drawing his weapon.

    Oregon City police spokesperson Lt. Jim Band said that 32-year-old Joseph Wade Wolters was at home on Sunday prepping for his new job as an armed security guard by holstering and unholstering a loaded weapon. Fourth grader Shayla May Shonneker was about 50 yards away when the gun discharged, sending a bullet through a wall and striking the girl in the face while she was playing outside.

    The girl was later pronounced dead after being rushed to Oregon Health & Science University Hospital by LifeFlight helicopter.





    According to KPTV, Wolters is currently a member of the military reserves, and received about 10 metals while serving in Iraq. Band said that he had been mistakenly arrested in 2007 after being declared absent without leave from the U.S. Army because of a mixup.

    John Wetten Elementary School, where Shayla Shonneker was a student, activated its crisis-response team on Monday to help both students and adults cope with the tragedy.

    “Many people on our staff were highly impacted by the news because of the close relationships they establish with the students,” Gladstone School District Superintendent Bob Stewart told The Oregonian. “We have made counselors available for anyone who wants to talk this over.”

    In the wake of a December mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has called for “armed security” in every school.

    I believe Miller's only motivation for running is money. Win or lose, running has been a good little earner for him so far. He hates work but loves conspiring and intriguing, just like Kiss of Death Palin.

    If Mark Begich runs a campaign similar to Lisa's he might have a good chance, but IMO there are not many non-teabaggers he could beat.

  18. Begich shouldn't be smiling - he will have a lot of explaining to do with his lack of support of gun law reform. If Alaska is as full of RWNJs as he (Begich) seems to assume - Miller could well win. It took massive effort - not to mention the demise of his opponent for him to win in 2008.

    Miller was defeated by a republican last time around.
