In a movement one pro-Sarah Palin website is calling "Operation Alaska Chaos", at least 100 people filed paperwork Thursday to register as write-in candidates in the U.S. Senate election, according to the Division of Elections.
The intent of course, is to so fully crowd the "write-in" candidate list that elections officials may distribute Tuesday (court ruling pending), that Lisa Murkowski's name be that much harder to find.
KFQD 750 AM radio host Dan Fagan, a Miller backer, urged voters to sign up in an act of "civil disobedience" — defying what he calls an illegal effort by the state.
"Rush on over there before 5 o’clock and register as a write-in candidate. Especially if your last name is Murkowski. That would really help the cause," Fagan told listeners Thursday afternoon.
I'm not sure what is more amusing. The fact that Joe Miller supporters are deluded enough to believe that their admitted computer tampering and lying candidate still has a legitimate shot to win this thing. Or that their efforts will (unwittingly of course) more likely improve Democrat McAdams' chances of defeating Murkowski? In case you haven't heard, the latest poll shows Murkowski at 34%, McAdams 29, and Joe fading fast at 23.
Less amusing is the sad fact that this is yet another disgusting display of the Teabagger's contempt for society in general. And yes, while it's clear the Democratic candidate will also benefit from this, there has been in no way such an organized or endorsed effort to monkey with the election process from the Democrats. This is yet another example of the boot-stomping, mob-mentality rife amongst the teabagging crowd. These people are troglodytes
