I Lurves Me Some Alaskans

Via Ace, here’s a story that re-affirms my faith in good old ‘Merkun Yes We Can Do Spirit: So Princess Lisa gets the State Supreme Court to allow her name as a write-in candidate to be posted in the polling place? Folks respond by registering dozens of new people as write-in candidates

Now, the reason that most states don’t have lists of write-in candidates is obvious: If someone wanted to be a candidate on a ticket, he’d have won his primary and be on the, you know, ballot which is spelled out. A write in candidate did not win this official contest so he is, you know, a WRITE IN. That is, people have to remember this awesome person’s name and write…it…in.

But not Lisa Murzarorkowski. She’s special. Super awesomely awesome special. She lost her primary but she deserves, nay, is OWED this seat because Mublublubski.

Dozens of people flooded the Midtown Division of Elections office this afternoon to register as write-in candidates for Tuesday’s U.S. Senate election. Many said the effort is meant to protest an order by the Alaska Supreme Court yesterday allowing a list of write-in candidates to be shown to voters who ask for assistance.

The Anchorage office received 56 Senate write-in applications — in person or by fax — in just 45 minutes, said election clerk Raymond McAndrews shortly before 5 p.m.

My only concern about this is that if any of these people actually get votes they will probably be votes that would have otherwise gone to Miller. I really really hope one of these people is named “Larry Mazeltovski”…
