I learned about "Reporter-Gate" earlier tonight while watching the Ed Schultz Show. What's going on out there, Alaskans? Is this the way Miller will treat reporters and the inquiring public if he makes it into the Senate? Have there been other similar occurrences that didn't make it into the national news?

Has this event changed your perception of Joe Miller and will it affect your vote? Does it make the TEA Party look like the Nazi Party?

It hasn't changed my mind a bit on either Joe Miller or the Tea Party.

Miller had a few interesting things to say that he didn't want the media to report, apparently. Such as his use of East Germany's Berlin Wall and a policy of shooting citizens who crossed the border as an example of what the US should look at to provide border security.

This is a guy people think understands our constitution???? Whoa...

Everybody that surrounds me in AK supports Joe Miller. I was starting to even give him a chance. I didn't even care he wouldn't answer questions about his background. HOWEVER, this incidident has pushed me back to Murkowski. I'll be voting in the next couple days, Lisa Murkowski and Ethan Berkowitz.

In about two weeks Toto. In about two weeks.

I read the story in ADN and it seems like at this time there are no comments supporting Joe the least under the stories I read. Could be both other Ms in the race suddenly became full fledged candidates. Finding the lesser of the evils in this election is becoming much easier every time another Joe bomb explodes. Perhaps Joe the much least is coming out from under his rock.

Just remember that voters in this state put Frank Murkowski in the Governor's office after having watched him spend 22 years in the US Senate as a total dead beat. They then, sigh... picked Sarah Palin to replace him!

We very well could see Joe Miller get elected. Lacking any qualifications has not stopped voters in this state before. The same people voted for GW Bush... and then voted for the McCain/Palin ticket!

These are the people who say we need a change... and expect to get it from Joe Miller! What a total hoot.

Yeah I'm abandoning this ship too. It's all starting to add up to Palin redux. Make the press the issue, lie until you are caught, once you are caught, admit the least possible, then keep obfuscating. Hire redneck incompetents into your inner circle. It is too bad, because I actually agree with him on most issues, and 99 pct of the time, that is good enough, but I must (VERY reluctantly) admit that he doesn't appear to be fit to hold office. There is something very wrong with this guy.
