  •  Miller's Hindenburg is actually bad for dems (1+ / 0-)

    I hope I am wrong, but Miller's complete incendiary implosion might actually be bad for dems. In reality they wanted Miller and Murkowski to be equally strong, which would have split the conservative vote and allowed McAdams to sneak in there. I hope I am wrong, and I could very well be, but this massive implosion was kind of fun to watch, but it might not help.

    Everything I write is within a margin of error of precisely 100%.

      possibly hurt?
      Miller collapses...McAdams wins...good, very good.

      Miller collapses...Murkowsky wins... not as good, but still has benifit. It's called vindictiveness.
      And if Murkowsky prevails it's open warfare with the Palinistas. Murkowsky will six years to completly undermine Palin in Alaska. The purge in gooper cicles will be ugly ( not to me ) and have ripples all through the miasmic swamp of GOP politics. For a long time.

      There is no downside to a Miller collapse.

      it tastes like burning...

        The math is pretty good if Miller hangs onto a good chunk of voters.
        Even popular write in votes fail to get more than 20%
        I don't think you can call Merkerski popular.
        Scott's definitely the best candidate for Alaskans and the country.
        That overrides all other considerations for me.
        I think McAdams will win, even with Miller's implosion.
        That will create a chain reaction of its own in the GOPTEAS. It will be beautiful.

        •  It's not just the Miller implosion... (0+ / 0-)

          add in the whole write in scenario and it's problematic problems including, apparently a free for all in that aspect and you get a combination that could add to the perfect storm for McAdams.
          Add in the disaffected Miller vote may not go to Lisa Um...

          The Crazy Combo leaves only one sane source....(D).

          it tastes like burning...
