Alaskan Supreme Court rules against Tea Party candidate Joe Miller: He who does not admit defeat is not a good sportsman

Finally, the Alaskan Supreme Court has ruled against Tea Party candidate Joe Miller in his appeal after losing the election to Lisa Murkowski. Losing after winning the Republican Senate primaries must be hard to swallow. If Joe Miller was in a developing country, he would certainly claim massive fraud.

If Joe Miller runs again in the future, he must learn the lesson of his loss. The Tea Party insurgency is a real threat for American democracy and tolerance. Sarah Palin’s endorsement was more bad luck than blessing. As the Malinke of Mali say, “He who does not admit defeat is not a good sportsman.”
