I wrote many articles after the Supreme Court leaked a draft ruling overturning Roe V. Wade. To this point, they’ve been focused on the various hysterics emanating from the left, including from Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris.
What about Republicans? How exactly are the more establishment among us handling things? In a phrase, not well. While the usual suspects are standing tall, the cowards have also come out to play. Chief among them is Sen. Lisa Murkowski, the nepotistic scold from the fairly red state of Alaska. Here’s what she had to say.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski: “Roe is still the law of the land, we don’t know the direction that this decision will ultimately take, but if it goes in the direction that this leaked copy has indicated, I will just tell you that it rocks my confidence in the court right now.”

This is like saying I don’t enjoy being hit in my face with a metal skillet. It’s sad that a presume Republican would repeat leftwing talking points about having “confidence” in the Supreme Court to get a decision that they don’t love.
This junk is exactly what I would expect of Senator Susan Collins. She is equally disgusting. But at least she hails from a blue state and represents a logical compromise for Republicans seeking to gain the majority in November. What’s Murkowski’s excuse? Remember, this is the same woman who tried to nuke now-Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination. Had she succeeded, we wouldn’t be where we are today on a range of issues. That she represents Alaska makes it even worse.
Murkowski is a soft-spoken quasiDemocrat, even though Senators from Alaska should not be like her. She doesn’t care about securing victories that will make Americans’ lives easier or save their lives.
Murkowski and others like her must be removed from the GOP. However, there shouldn’t be any crossing of the lines.
Murkowski even went so far as to praise the “Women’s March”, an extremist far-left organization that promotes abortion up until (and possibly after birth).
She is currently running in the Alaska primary against Kelly Tshibaka. It’s time for the Republican Party itself to toss the undeserving incumbent overboard. Sen. Mitch McConnell needs to grow a backbone and say he’s not going to give Murkowski any money going forward. Others need to come out and endorse her opponent. Enough is enough.
