Hellacious Journalistic Fail – UPDATED
Seems Alexandra Gutierrez missed the goal post by a mile when she cheerily predicted a landslide win for Murkowski over the Palin backed candidate, Joe Miller.
UNALASKA, Alaska—On Tuesday, in her home state, Sarah Palin’s favorite will probably get trounced. Joe Miller is widely expected to lose by a large margin to incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the Republican primary—an embarrassing defeat for the former governor, who has endorsed Miller, but also to Miller’s other major backer, the Tea Party Express.
Gee, I hope she didn’t have any money riding on a Murkowski win. Anchorage Daily News (ADN) reports:
With 429 of 438 precincts counted this morning,, Miller had 45,909 votes (51 percent) to 43,949 (49 percent) for Murkowski.
Miller credited the support of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for his lead.
“I’m absolutely certain that was pivotal,” he said.
Karma – don’t mess with her.
Oh, I’m not holding out for a mea culpa from Alexandra on this epic fail any time soon.
