Re: Scozzafava Campaign in Damage-Control Mode [Mark Steyn]
Well, I'm with The Weekly Standard on this one. When a GOP candidate with an entourage winds up calling the cops over a reporter from a pro-GOP publication, that's one seriously dumb campaign and the ludicrous post-911 call spin only makes it more pathetic.
But here's my bigger thought: After the great summer surge of town halls and tea parties, the Republican Party gets to take the first electoral test of the new public mood and what does it offer the public for a reliable Republican district? A pro-tax pro-card-check liberal Republican as liberal as the liberal Democrat but, unlike the latter, unable even to articulate her positions without calling in the constabulary.
Don't expect too much from 2010. On present form, even if Obamacare leads to ebola outbreaks in 43 states, the GOP will still manage to screw it up.
Steyn, as usual, NAILS IT!
Where is that RINO apologist Cedric when you need her?
I love Steyn!
And while I’m still firmly in the ‘Reform the GOP’ camp, I can understand those who have given up on it.
The only way for the GOP to be more pathetic is to find them in the streets of Calcutta being ministered to by the sisters of charity.
Question - why didn’t someone challenge this RINO in the primaries?
Just goes to show that the East Coast RINOs would rather lose than have a conservative win.
This is a special election; no primary was held.
The GOP still hasn’t figured out that most of the Tea Party crowd is madder at the Republicans than the Democrats.
When your enemies act like your enemies, well you expect that. But when you “friends” stab you in the back, that produces real anger.
Do you have a link that works?
Looks like the RINO's defense is essentially that McCormack hurt her feelings. Pretty weak tonic.
No more RINOS!!
Scofazza is to the LEFT of Olympia Snowe.
RNC: “Let’s endorse her. In fact, call Newt. He can campaign for her in that district.”
Now you know why I didn’t vote for McCain. I dare ANYBODY to give me sh!t for it!
This isn’t any common namby pamby RINO, this is a full fledged leftist backed by KOS!
“Why didn’t someone challenge this RINO in the primaries?”
The GOP selected Dede Scozzafava so they could have someone in the (R) column. Doug Hoffman, her opponent on the right, is a conservative in the (C) column. He’s on the November ballot, but so is the (D).
