Election Day is still a month off, but Alaska Senate GOP candidate Joe Miller is apparently planning for his move to Washington. Here's a sample of his Twitter entries from earlier in the week:
"Think I'll do some house hunting while I'm in DC"
"Guess I should pick up some office furniture, as well"
"Then there's the matter of a name plaque for the door"
Those exuberant message rolled through Miller's Twitter account Wednesday, but the Miller campaign deleted them shortly afterward. Miller told the Associated Press that the campaign believed the tweets to be inappropriate and said they were written by "a volunteer who will no longer have access to the account."
Of course, the blogosphere, media outlets and Miller's own opponents had already seen them.
Now, Miller's write-in opponent, Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, is trying to use the flap against him. Her campaign has released a radio ad about the offending tweets. You can check it out below:
