Doug Hoffman didnt have a chance to make his case to Republican voters in a primary in New Yorks 23rd Congressional District. Thats because the local GOP establishment chose its candidate behind closed doors, in a formerly smoke-filled room. The Republican grass roots never had a chance to choose among qualified candidates.
And the National Republican Congressional Committee compounded this error by jumping into the contest with both left feet.
That matters. Hoffman is a genuine Reagan conservative in a district that generally votes in that direction. Now, some smart people argue that in some districts, only a moderate Republican can get elected. Thats what coalitions are all about. We cannot get all we want all the time. Even the Gipper would campaign for some Republicans I was less than thrilled about. He understood the importance of building a majority in Congress.

Let the RINOs run without conservative voters. See how many get elected. “Moderate” Republicans are tools of the Left.
Darn it. He’s not in my district, but I have several relatives who will be voting for him.
Markos Moulitsas, founder of The Daily Kos has endorsed Scozzafava. Dede Scozzafava has also been endorsed by NYSUT, the largest labor union in New York, and an affiliate of the National Education Association.
Scozzafava also holds these positions:
Scozzafava has also run in past elections on the Working Families Party (a progressive party associated with ACORN) line on the ballot.
This lady isn’t a RINO, she is a big “R” libeRal democRat. Mark Steyn has coined the term DIABLO for her and others like her. Democrat In All But Label Only.
There are also at least 17 unprincipled DIABLO enablers in the house who have donated funds or otherwise supported to this LibeRal democRat's DIABLO’s campaign. They include Boehner, Cantor, Sessions, Hensarling, Brown-Waite and McCotter. I don’t have a full list, but I will be looking for it. These unprincipled enablers should be targeted for elimination in the primaries next year. Also, perhaps those of us who donated to the RNC or RCCC should ask for our money back so we can support the conservative candidates of our choice.

Please, spread the word about this important election on November 3, 2009 in New York’s 23rd congressional district.
I heard him interviewed for 20 minutes yesterday on the radio. Mr. Solid Citizen. Beck is pumping him on his tv show today.
As is his wont, Mr. Blackwell, God love him, is far too charitable towards the unprincipled hacks in his own party, and the typical games they play that hurt conservatism, but we’ll take it.
