If it is good for Alaska …

Horror of horrors. Democrats in Alaska are in a frightful snit since Sen. Lisa Murkowski said she would vote to seat Amy Coney Barrett on the U.S. Supreme Court.

The senator earlier had voted “no” on procedural matters leading up to Monday’s floor vote, but now says, in the end, she will support Barrett, giving Alaska Democrats a huge dose of the vapors. They are mad, mad, mad – hopping mad.

“Lisa Murkowski holds her seat only because she convinced Democrats to write in her name in an act of faith. Since then we’ve been begging for crumbs, and more often than not get nothing,” MustReadAlaska.com reports the Alaska Democratic Party saying in a scathing statement.

Crumbs, indeed. From where we sit, Murkowski is spot on. She says she will vote Monday in support of a duly nominated, highly qualified jurist to be seated on the U.S. Supreme Court to protect this nation and its Constitution from the ravages of liberal doofuses. It is good for Alaska – and the nation.

What in the world could be wrong with that? Well, protecting the Constitution from liberal excesses is not in the Democrats’ wheelhouse.

We hate to say it, but the explosion of anger at Murkowski simply is another example of Alaska Democrats’ apparent motto: If it is good for Alaska, it is bad for Democrats.

And Murkowski needs a better class of friends.

    Lies A Lot’s political career has been consistent and aloof. She has stabbed both parties in the back……….

    Everything a democrat candidate says is suspect at this point. Might serve the USA better if all the democrats just resigned, but that’s another matter.

    Just another conservative to embrace the new Republican character trait of blatant hypocrisy. Kinda hard to know what a rep is all about when they lie and flip flop on issues. Seriously, why even campaign at this point, everything a GOP candidate says is suspect at this point. Might serve her better to just keep quiet until she knows the path forward next time. Might serve the USA better if all the Republicans just resigned, but that’s another matter.

    And how Barret is being confirmed is beyond reason. If I walked into a job interview and refused to answer questions, pretty sure I’d be tossed out on my butt. The GOP bar is low.
