In your Friday paper I read Erik Lie-Nielsen's letter to the editor supposedly contrasting the gubernatorial contest between Fran Ulmer and Frank Murkowski as a contest between Beauty and the Beast. He referred to Frank Murkowski as an "egocentric, rude, money-oriented, boorish, blockheaded, offensive retrograde, regressive, and taking support from Big Oil and Big Business largely from outside the state."
Any rational citizen of this great state who knows anything about the issues and the candidates would have to conclude that Mr. Lie-Nielsen has been brained-washed and that he doesn't have a lick of sense and no appreciation for class. With the kind of problems facing the state right now we don't need "Beauty" from the Knowles administration whose only real function for the last eight years was counting ballots. We need somebody who has proven himself in business and politics - and that person is Frank Murkowski.
