Senator Lisa Murkowski: The Pugilist Candidate in Mourning

There is the popular saying Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and according to Mukowski's boxing coach, Andrew Halcro, Joe Miller had better get ready:

Get ready Joe; Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

That sound you hear is Lisa's gloves hitting the floor.

Now you would think that Halcro would be a great coach and tell Murkwoski to get in that political ring and box the ears off of Joe Miller right?

Evidently Murkowksi is not quite ready to enter the political boxing ring just yet.

Just like the Republican primary, it seems Murkowski Murkowski is just doing some fancy foot work right now, by avoiding Joe Miller in debates:

PETERSBURG-AK (2010-09-17) Alaska’s Democratic and Republican nominees for US Senate faced off for the first time during an event in Petersburg, Thursday morning. Scott McAdams and Joe miller answered questions at an annual meeting of Southeast Alaskan community and business leaders. As Matt Lichtenstein reports, the discussion kept coming back to the issue of federal earmarks

Knowing Halcro is involved behind the scenes in the Murkowski write-in campaign, look for Murkowski to throw political sucker punches that land below the belt.

Editor's note: To clarify, the event in Southeast Alaska was before the announcement on Friday - at the beginning of the week, Murkowski had made her decision to conduct a write-in and announce it on Friday. She knew prior to the debate that she would be entering the general election as write-in.
