Things weren’t bad enough in the Republican party. Now it’s worse. At the website of ABC News we read Alaska Senate Candidates Debate for Last Time. Here are some excerpts, with bold added by us:
U.S. Senate hopeful Joe Miller says disclosures about his past haven’t slowed his commitment to giving voice to Alaskans’ concerns or affected his desire to serve.
We have no idea what those “disclosures about his past” might be. There’s a brief mention of what it was later in the article — something about misuse of computers while serving as a borough attorney. Well, if that were his only problem we might not care too much.
This is his campaign website. He’s a graduate of West Point, a decorated combat veteran, and he’s also a graduate of Yale Law School. We haven’t been following that race very closely, but Miller seemed okay to us — except for that weird beard. Let’s read on from the ABC News article:
The debate touched on topics such as whether creationism should be taught in schools: the Republican Miller said yes, along with science; Democrat Scott McAdams and GOP write-in candidate Sen. Lisa Murkowski both said it shouldn’t be.
There you go. Another candidate we had thought was a sensible fellow turns out to be … well, a flaming creationist.
Nevertheless, although that’s a truly terrible flaw, he may still be the better choice. These are extra-ordinary times.
