JUNEAU, Alaska — A judge on Friday ruled against Republican Joe Miller’s lawsuit challenging how Alaska counted write-in votes for rival Lisa Murkowski in their Senate race, delivering a crushing blow to the tea party-backed candidate’s longshot legal fight.Judge William Carey’s ruling all but ends Miller’s hopes of getting relief in state court. Miller can appeal to the state Supreme Court, and his spokesman said he was mulling the option, but Carey cited past decisions by the high court in his ruling.The judge said his decision to throw out Miller’s lawsuit wouldn’t take effect until Tuesday to allow time for an appeal.Miller spokesman Randy DeSoto said there are still outstanding issues “in terms of wanting to get a true and accurate count, and we don’t feel like we’re there yet.”Murkowski called on Miller to concede, telling The Associated Press: “It’s time to end this. It’s time to say that the election is over.”

Now everyone knows that the Federal Bench is loaded with Judicial Activists.
So you'd think this would be just the trick for Senate Candidate Joe Miller's bid to disenfranchise the 10 thousand plus ballots he needed to move past Lisa Murkowski in Alaska's Senate race. A judicial activist. That would be the Perfect way to get what you want.
But alas, Poor Joe couldn't find an Activizer when he needed one. Poor Joe Miller.
Maybe he'll have better luck at the State Courts. Maybe? Not likely it turns out. It seems that you can't find a Activist State Court Judge when you need one, either.
There's still time for the Militia, though. Everyone knew that Judges appointed by the Government were just going to screw Poor Joe over when they got the chance. And they sure did.
Militia Joe. You are running out of time to act like you got a pair. Better call 'em out now before you run out of time.
