I can't see anything positive from Scozzafava or the RAT candidate winning a special election. Either way it would really difficult to defeat an incumbent liberal Congressman in 2010. Scozzafava would have the entire GOP establishment in Washington on her side in a primary, and a RAT congressman would be much stronger as an incumbent in a state like New York.
I don't mind voting third party, when either A) The Republican candidate is so far left they are indistinguishable or even worse than a lot of Democrats, or B) The Republican candidate is hopelessly inept/clueless/crooked and guaranteed to lose (polling behind by at least 20-30 points for months) and need to send the state patty a message about the bozo they nominated. It's throwing a temper tantrum and voting third party in a close race like center-right Norm Coleman vs. unhinged marxist Al Franken that's stupid.
You know I never noticed there was a constitution party candidate and libertarian candidate in the Minnesota race. Combined they got over .75%, enough to save Coleman from the election burglars. Dean Barkley probably got mostly non-moonbat dem-leaners who would have broke for Coleman otherwise.
The Constitution party also cost Gordon Smith, I’d have voted for him but I have no personal sympathy for that moron.
This is the first time I’ve endorsed a third party candidate (excluding retroactively, example AIP’s John Schmitz for President 1972). I hope moronic Republicans don’t give me reason to do so again.
The California Governor’s race is a possibility.
You’re right on this count. Otherwise, it’s either a ‘Rat or an uner-RINO in a mostly conservative district, one who could easily switch parties and in fact was asked to become a ‘Rat recently. Jim Kelly has my support, for what it’s worth.
