Just Vote Opinion
By Chris Elliott

Mr. Herby refers to Joe Miller as a slick talker from Kansas that never held public office before. Ted Stevens was what some might call a slick talker from Indiana who never held public office before he was elected to the Alaska House of Representatives. What is our obsession with Lisa Murkowski being Alaska born?

I'm also curious about how Lisa can say that Joe only got X percent of the vote, so he really wasn't chosen by the majority of Alaskans. If she had won with that X percent, would she still be singing that song? No matter who you vote for, vote on the issues not the negative chitter-chatter.
