Sarah Palin lambasted incumbent U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska of gutter politics for using opponent Joe Miller’s military service as a means to attack him. "I have never seen a candidate stoop as low as was seen [Sunday] night in Alaska’s senatorial debate,” the former Alaska governor wrote on her Facebook page Monday, excoriating what she called Murkowski’s “horrific attack on Miller's military honor.”

Palin, Joe Miller, Murkowski, AlaskaMiller, a Republican and a tea party favorite who has Palin’s endorsement, graduated from West Point, fought in Desert Storm, and was awarded the Bronze Star, Palin noted. “I find it astonishing that a sitting U.S. senator from Alaska would challenge the honor of a decorated combat veteran. Is it any wonder the audience later booed her when she again challenged Joe Miller’s honor?"

The former Republican vice-presidential candidate said she’s not new to ugly campaigning, but “what they’re throwing at Joe right now is nasty. Joe’s opponents can’t run on the issues because they’re wrong on them — whether it’s repealing and de-funding Obamacare, fighting against cap-and-tax, protecting our borders, or pushing hard for responsible resource development. They can’t win in a fair fight on the issues, so they sling mud.”

Murkowski is in a tight race with Miller, in which she is waging a write-in campaign as an independent candidate after losing to him in the Republican primary.
