Murkowski takes her victory lap in final Senate race

(CNN) – Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska Wednesday declared victory over fellow Republican Joe Miller in the nation's last Senate race, saying the result of her write-in candidacy was a "miracle." "Against all odds, we as Alaskans together made history," Murkowski told cheering supporters in Anchorage. If she prevails in a potential challenge, Murkowski would become the second person to ever win a write-in bid for the U.S. Senate. Murkowski's statement was the climax in the state's bitter and prolonged Senate battle.

This morning, Murkowski speaks to American Morning. She explains why she's claiming victory and gives her opinion on Sarah Palin.

    Why yes, Joe. Other factors WERE involved in East Germany:

    1) East Germany was a communist state.
    2) People were leaving East Germany for a better life in the West.
    3) East Germany was a puppet state of the Soviet Union.
    4) To reiterate, East Germany was about keeping people IN, not OUT.

    So yes, I guess East Germany is a PERFECT model for controlling our borders!

    Please just concede already.
