UPDATE: The Alaska Supreme Court has tossed Joe Miller's lawsuit, which gives him 48 hours to take his case to federal court. There is absolutely no indication that he'd find a more favorable take on his legal reasoning there, but there's no indication that Miller has suddenly woken up and discovered class, either, so he might do it.
For reference: George W. Bush's margin over Al Gore in Florida was 0.0052 percent. Murkowski's margin over Miller if none of her contested ballots are tossed is 4.03 percent. This might be the largest margin in a recount lawsuit in American history.
The senator from Alaska, who owes Republicans exactly nothing after getting re-elected as a write-in candidate, talks to the ADN's Erika Bolstad about how sweet this is.
