Lisa Murkowski’s George Clooney Moment
Posted at 11:23 a.m. on June 4, 2013
It’s a long way from D.C. to Alaska … long enough to make Republican Lisa Murkowski the million-mile senator.
Murkowski posted to Facebook on Monday night that on her flight back to D.C. after the Memorial Day recess, she found out she had achieved million-mile status on Alaska Airlines.
Murkowski still has about 9 million miles to go to match George Clooney’s character’s total in the 2009 movie “Up in the Air,” but the good news is that unlike Clooney’s Ryan Bingham, the people of Alaska seem to like her enough that they’ve continued to elect her.
Many thanks to Murkowski spokesman Matthew Felling for flagging.
