Joe Miller: Sarah's ungrateful candidate

(Tenth in a series)

That's a picture of Sarah Palin and her anointed one, Joe Miller, in what is usually called "happier days." That was before some flock strife settled into the relationship and Sarah's husband Todd lambasted Miller for disloyalty to the woman whose endorsement is credited with swinging Alaska's GOP U.S. senate primary to him. But when Miller was interviewed on where-else-but-Fox News, he refused to endorse Palin for president. You can understand First Dude Todd's blow-up in which he said things like "Sarah put her ass on the line for Joe and yet he can't answer a simple question." Well, that's Joe Miller for you. He is so careless about what he says. For example, he has been attacking unemployment insurance even though word has now gotten out that his wife had been receiving such federal relief. He also failed to file a personal finance disclosure statement with the Senate, a step required by law. That could cost him up to $50,000. And he's a guy who is a Yale Law School graduate! So much for Ivy League credentials. I'd have to say that the whole gang up there in Alaska is at least 20,000 leagues under the Bering Sea!
