Palin: Murkowski Goes Low, Attacks Joe Miller's Military Record

Sarah Palin, "The" Mama Grizzly, said Senator Lisa Murkowski dishonored herself by attacking Republican candidate for Lisa's senate seat, Joe Miller's military record. Actually Palin said she had "never seen a candidate stoop so low," as Murkowski did in Monday night's debate. See the video below.

But perhaps the most shocking part of all in this debate was when the incumbent Senator used Joe Miller’s distinguished military service as a means to attack him. Joe Miller graduated from West Point, fought in Desert Storm, and was awarded the Bronze Star for his service to our country. I find it astonishing that a sitting U.S. Senator from Alaska would challenge the honor of a decorated combat veteran. 
Thanks to Murkowski, the incumbent who lost in the primaries, but nevertheless is running as a write-in candidate, Miller is facing a three-way race. Another Republican (Murkowski) setting a Constitutional-Congress up for failure. She is only barely Republican, as demonstrated by GovTrack:

Sarah makes a critical point out of Murkowski's Liberal-ways: Amnesty: yes! Border fence: no! Come on Alaska, why would you vote for that?

I’ve seen some pretty ugly campaigning, and what they’re throwing at Joe right now is nasty. Joe’s opponents can’t run on the issues because they’re wrong on them – whether it’s repealing and de-funding Obamacare, fighting against cap-and-tax, protecting our borders, or pushing hard for responsible resource development. They can’t win in a fair fight on the issues, so they sling mud...
The sitting Senator also came out against Arizona’s right to protect its borders. She called for us to “enforce the laws that are currently on the books,” but didn’t seem to understand that that is precisely what Arizona is trying to do to protect itself because the federal government refuses to enforce our laws. Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised by her lackadaisical attitude to border security when we consider that she has repeatedly voted against funding a border fence and voted in favor of amnesty.
Here's the attack on Joe Miller, and listen as Murkowski says Miller "is not fit to lead."
