Murkowski Vindictive - Voting with Democrats

Let this be a lesson to all those GOP senators who wanted one of their own back in the senate and even secretly helped her win. They also did not take away her key committee positions despite losing the GOP nomination. Their reward? Her vindictiveness.

Murkowski is already showing a fierce independent streak, becoming the only Republican to cast votes on all four items on President Barack Obama’s wish list: a repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” a tax-cut compromise, the START deal and cloture for the DREAM Act.

Let that be a lesson to them - she's worse than a Democrat because she will continue to give the GOP a bad name and will be too willing to compromise, resulting in no distinction to voters.
