Spare Me

I’ve got no brief for Joe Miller, but what is Norm Coleman — Norm Coleman! — doing opining that Miller ought to throw in the towel now in the Alaska Senate race?

It’s only been three weeks since the election, and Coleman dragged his own Senate election contest out for 8 months. Now, there’s virtually no doubt Miller is going to lose, but it’s Norm Coleman!

I guess when you’re working the inside game in DC as an ex-senator you have to kiss up to the Republican establishment which much prefers the return of incumbent Lisa Murkowski to the insurgency of Joe Miller.
