Many will remember in the 2008 elections when Sarah Palin and Joe Biden were just getting ready to debate and Palin asked Biden, "mind if I call you Joe?" The reason was later evident because Palin was eager to use her now famous line "Say it ain't so, Joe" line to take the emphasis off her lack of knowledge. And it worked, kinda.
Now, Sarah has dusted off that tired line and is using it once again for someone else whom she actually has thrown her support behind, i.e Joe Miller, candidate for Senator of Alaska. Miller's main opponent is Sen. Linda Murkowski, who is staging a write-in campaign as she lost the Republican nomination to Miller.
Miller has finally been ordered by a judge to allow access to his personnel file while he was employed as an attorney for the Fairbanks North Star Borough. There have been allegations that Miller was accused by his employer of violating ethics laws and lying about his actions, but up until now, he has fought a brave battle to keep that information secret.
Miller's response to criticisms about his attempt to cover this up have taken a back seat to Sarah Palin's reaction to the whole ordeal. Today, she finally tweeted her disapproval of Miller's actions by simply typing "Say It Ain't So, Joe" and left it at that.
When Joe Biden was asked about the whole Miller thing, all he had to say is "Whew, glad Sarah's got a new Joe to stomp all over."
