Here are the three Lisa Murkowski ads currently running:
Essentially, by failing to take Joe the Teabagger seriously back in July, she's now forced to spend 2/3 of her campaign resources on "educating Alaskans" on how to fill in a write-in candidate's name on the November 2nd ballot.
At first glance, the ads appear to be effective. The challenge is formidable, as no write-in candidate for statewide office has ever been successful here before.
The amount of money Murkowski will be spending on her "education program" could rebuild three village schools in the impoverished Wade Hampton census district.
Meanwhile critiques of the methodologies on recent Alaska US Senate race polls are beginning to roll in, even as Miller's popularity seems to be in a free fall down to its inevitable base of the 25% of Alaskans who would prefer a pregnant 12-year mom die bearing her dad's kid than see the fetus terminated.
Joe's their guy, and he knows it.
