    If Murkowski endorses Miller, it will be proof that party politics are more important to her than principles, ethics, or the good of Alaska and the nation. Miller is a lunatic-fringe candidate whose standards are little more than “who paid me to prostitute myself last?”

    Ummmm, the “Tenth Amendment” is part of the Constitution. Seriously, look it up you [edited] RETARD.

    Thank you for your comment, such as it is. Yes. I do realize the 10th Amendment “is part of the Constitution,” as you point out. That’s the whole point. My reference to the so-called “Tenther” movement, describes states’ rights extremists, such as Joe Miller. For your edification, I provide the following definition of a “Tenther” courtesy of Wikipedia:

    “The Tenther movement is a pejorative term used to describe a political ideology and a social movement in the United States which espouses that many actions of the United States government are unconstitutional. Adherents invoke the concept that the states share sovereignty with the federal government and with the people by citing the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution as the basis for their legal and ideological beliefs.” [...]

    “Adherents oppose a broad range of federal government programs, from New Deal legislation to Great Society legislation, such as Medicaid, Medicare, the VA health system and the G.I. Bill.”
