Senate GOP to strip Murkowski of seniority on Energy committee

It’d be nice to see her booted from the committee entirely — and while we’re at it, from Appropriations too — but the key is to make sure Alaska voters know she’ll no longer be in a position to deliver oil-related pork. If she wins, she starts fresh, no higher on the totem pole than Joe Miller would be. Mission accomplished.
Senate Republicans just said they will move tomorrow to strip Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, from her post as ranking Republican on the Senate Energy Committee.
Republicans say Wednesday they will vote to elect an acting ranking member and then the full GOP conference will ratify the vote…
Another Republican came out of the Senate GOP lunch and told CNN it was clear Murkowski has virtually no support among her colleagues anymore. That senator spoke on condition of anonymity, in order to speak freely about a private meeting.
Really? Not even from soon-to-be-independent Olympia Snowe? Or is she covered by that “virtually” qualifier?
Here’s Murky’s newest write-in ad, which is light-years better than last night’s fiasco. Her name’s spelled correctly and everything.
