Well, we aren't the ones they need to convince. As the old saying goes, they're gonna have to "tell it to the judge."

I saw some of the people interviewed on the news last night and they made it very clear that their intentions were purely mischevious. They had no intent to actually run for an office, their sole purpose was to "confuse and dis-enfranchise Murkowski voters." Those were their words, not mine - a defacto confession to a crime - recorded on video. Election tampering is taken very seriously.

Also, looking over that list, I'm pretty sure some of those are bogus or joke names. Again, by putting a signature on the form, that would amount to FRAUD.

to agree to disagree amicably would be a great way to keep a political thread going....but some choose to be rude, childish and use the report button. there is a lot of good information flowing here but it gets ruined when one poster cannot be accepting of someone else's choice and voices that choice.

It seems to me that for a position as powerful as a US Senate seat, the prospective candidate should be a known individual with a resume of serving the public at a local level first. You don't just go from relative obscurity to CEO in the business world, you have to pay your dues first. That way, you don't get an unproven person with facist tendencies going to DC.

Well, well, child if you have any qualifications for high office perhaps you might elucidate all of us by disclosing them so we would at least know what they are. As is your single qualification seems to be to pick the least worthwhile candidate and promote that individual to the exclusion of any candidate with many strong qualifications. So they should close the thread after you have had your worthless say so?

Richelles,

I am starting to feel the love. Anyone that would use elucidate to respond to my post. I love you man. You should have went to the rally last night. Then you too would be enlightened.

Talk radio host off the air after rallying listeners to run for Senate

The guy certainly appears to use his radio show as a political platform to oust Lisa. He can do that -- but on his own dime.

Was it a brain washing session? I don't care how wonderful someone sounds, if they haven't proven their worth in a lower office, I'm not listening.

Not only that, but he is claiming he was taken off as part of the vast Murkowski conspiracy

"Bottom line is that Lisa Murkowski is a very powerful person, and she has succeeded in taking me off the air the Friday before the election," Fagan said. "It's impressive."
Never mind he was complicit in election fraud.

The guy needs a tin-foil hat. Problem is I don't know if there is enough foil in the entire state of Alaska to cover his fat head.
