Miller, since Coleman had a legitimate case (at least at some point). It was clear since polls closed that Murkowski won this one. But she's a sore loser too for even running the write-in campaign after losing the primary.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

But she lost the primary.

Though, I do like it when a race has a third viable candidate that doesn't just split the vote.  I'm torn between anger over her preventing Miller from winning, and some joy that Alaskans got more than two viable options.

Sure, but the fact that it seems that the at large Alaskan electorate apparently wanted her to remain their Senator defuses her sore loserness (though she is obviously still something of a sore loser, just nowhere to the degree of the other two).

Even if 100% of his challenges were upheld (including ones written out correctly but in cursive), he still wouldn't have enough.

Thus, it's frivolous

We will see if that holds after counting the remaining absentee, questioned and other ballots.  If it does, Miller won't sue.  If it doesn't, he will.

Anyone would think he'd been reading this thread and thought it necessary to defend his honour or something.

While that article is hilarious, Norm Coleman is still the biggest sore loser.
