Looks like The Quitter’s recent, last-ditch efforts to save her grifter cabana boy have all been for naught.

A high-level GOP source tells me that party leaders have essentially given up on Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller and are now banking on a victory by write-in candidate Lisa Murkowski as the best bet for Republicans to keep the Alaska Senate seat.

Oops. Guess the whole lying and cheating, thing — to go with the incoherence and Gestapo-like thuggery — haven’t been a winning combo.

The best part?

The nightmare scenario for Republicans is that McAdams comes in second on Election Day, trailing “write-in candidate.”  Those write-in votes won’t be counted unless there are more write-in votes than there are votes for any candidate on the ballot.  Once the write-in votes are counted, however, some of them will inevitably be disqualified (illegible writing, wrong name, etc.).  And a small number will be for candidates other than Murkowski.  If enough are tossed out, second place McAdams would be the winner.

That’s right — The Quitter and the Teabaggers could’ve just delivered a Senate seat in Alaska to the Democrats. Also.
