I really hope we don't see people Outside suddenly trying to present Lisa as the Charlie Crist of Alaska.

1. I'm kind of worried that it will hurt him
because she splits the "reasonable people" vote -- although if things get really down and dirty between Miller and Murkowski, as they no doubt will, Scott may benefit by being seen as the adult in the room. Also, I think a lot of people may perceive that Lisa is a sore loser, and if Miller as an alternative scares them, they may go Scott's way.

I noticed Scott has gotten quite an influx of money at Act Blue over the past couple of days. The last I checked it was $207,000+.

2. Well, one thing we CAN hit Lisa hard with is this: who the hell will she organize with?
There's no way the regular 'pugs will just take her back as if nothing's happened(they've already said she'll be stripped of her committee assignments and seniority for staying in the race as a write-in)and there's no way she'd feel comfortable crossing over to the Dems.
