Joe Miller, who as the Tea-Party backed Republican Senate candidate in Alaska in 2010 was defeated by a write-in campaign for incumbent Lisa Murkowski, lost his second Senate bid last year and has now apparently decided to reinvent himself as a right-wing radio host.
Last month, Miller launched a radio program that is broadcast online and on a couple of stations in Alaska, and in his first few weeks managed to secure interviews with conservative activists including Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt, Ret. Major General Paul Vallely and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.
Signaling the ease with which he’s transitioning from a politician to a radio host, Miller also scored interviews with a number of prominent birthers, including WorldNetDaily’s Jerome Corsi, attorney Herb Titus and, of course, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whom he thanked for his “admirable” ongoing effort to prove that the president’s birth certificate is a forgery.
Miller told Arpaio that he knows something’s not right with Obama’s record, falsely claiming that the president has spent “millions” to “protect his college records” and that “there’s really no dispute” that “his Selective Service registration card that’s been published is a forgery.”
He added that the media is enforcing a “double standard” in questioning why Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker left college before graduating. “You talk about a double standard. I mean, here you’ve got a media attacking Scott Walker because they don’t know why he left school the last year, and yet they don’t lift a finger on President Obama,” he said.
Arpaio agreed that the president’s background is so questionable that “I don’t think he would be hired in our office when you get right down to it,” and lamented that it’s “a little strange” that he’s the only one investigating the long-moot birth certificate issue.
“It is,” Miller responded. “And any time that you stand up and you say, hey, look, I’m going to stand for what’s right, you end up being the target on it. And the stand that you’ve taken, not just on that issue but on illegal aliens and the other issues you’re facing, are admirable.”
