At a town hall meeting Sunday afternoon in Anchorage, U.S. Senate campaign GOP nominee Joe Miller was asked a long question on how we should keep illegal immigrants out.
His short answer: “If East Germany can do it, we can do it!”

In what may be the first solid signs of a U.S. Senatorial campaign about to go off the rails, Tea Bag Express star, Sarah Palin favorite and GOP primary nominee Joe Miller, went through a bizarre set of moves in Anchorage early Monday.

Alaska artist and political wonk, Tom Begich, was on Moore Up North today. Tom is U.S. Sen. Mark Begich’s brother. Along with brother Dr. Nick Begich, Jr, Tom is far more progressive than Mark. Tom borrowed my classroom blackboard from the University of Alaska Anchorage to illustrate two important things – why Sen. Lisa Murkowski cannot win on November 2nd as a write-in, and how close Scott McAdams may really be.

Four consecutive polls, three of them with Sen. Lisa Murkowski being polled as an active candidate in a three-way race show Teabagger Joe Miller at 50%, 47%, 42%, 36% and now – 30%. The last one, taken by fairly accurate pollster Craciun, puts Joe the Teabagger 11 points behind incumbent Murkowski, who he beat in a fairly closed GOP primary, back in late August. Miller has lost .6 percentage points per day since the primary.

Hello, FDL. My name is Scott McAdams, and I’m the Democratic candidate for Senate in the great state of Alaska. I met some of you this year at Netroots Nation in Las Vegas, back when my candidacy was a tiny blip on the 2010 Senate radar screen. Since then, as some of you might have heard, my race has heated up into an almost unprecedented three-way battle, complete with a nationally televised Republican Family Feud. Follow me below the jump for a little bit of who I am and what I’m all about.

Prior to information emerging yesterday that Fairbanks divorce attorney Joe Miller took thousands of dollars in Federal farm subsidies for apparently doing nothing on Kansas farm land while Miller resided in Alaska, a new Rasumussen Poll shows him losing 8 points of support in 18 days, in the first post-Murkowski write-in campaign poll made public.

Watching Chris Wallace’s growing frustration in trying to get a straight answer out of Fairbanks divorce attorney Joe Miller this morning reminded me of Rep. David Guttenberg’s statement about Miller’s shallowness:
I beat this fool when he ran against me in 2004. Miller speaks drivel.

Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s campaign office, largely dormant since her loss to teabagger Joe Miller in the August GOP primary, is coming back to life yesterday and today, with signs being put into delivery trucks and this e-mail announcement this morning:
“Join us at the Kick-off of Senator Lisa’s campaign — with a theme of “write in her name in and fill in the oval.”
“Denai’na Convention Center, third floor and hopefully out on the sunny deck, 5 pm. Bring your family including children, friends and business associates. We plan to make history!”

Where progressive dollars can go furthest in Senate races – and reform, maybe end, the filibuster while we’re at it.
