Joe Miller Is Tall and Thin, But Except For That....

In the Great Divorce, C.S. Lewis describes Napoleon in the afterlife walking and talking:
"It was Soult's fault. It was Ney's fault. It was Josephines fault. It was the fault of the Russians. It was the fault of the English." Like that all the time, never stopped for a moment.  A little fat man and he looked kind of tired. But he didn't seem able to stop it.

Murkowski spokesman Kevin Sweeney:
“Throughout this election, Miller has blamed everybody else. It was the media’s fault. It was his advisor’s fault. Then it was the Division of Elections staff's fault, the lieutenant governor's fault, and now he is blaming his own volunteers -- people who took nearly a week of their own to travel to Juneau and work on his behalf," Sweeney said. "I was there. I watched his volunteers. I though they did a great job in doing what they were asked to do. They challenged every single ballot they could find a fault with. At some point he has to accept responsibility and that he lost and that he’s to blame.”

    MARKET PRINCIPLES ... Speaking of the Big Count, earwigs report the Miller campaign apparently spent all that Outside money on lawyers and didn't have enough left over to buy lunch for its loyal volunteer count-watchers. In fact, folks connected to the campaign set up a concession stand down in Juneau, where they sold their own workers Costco water at $1 a bottle -- isn't that like twice the purchase price? -- and homemade food.
    Murkowski campaign manager Kevin Sweeney felt so sorry for them, he bought the Miller volunteers pizza.
