NY-23: Scozzafava Photo-Op Goes Horribly Wrong (RINO makes hilarious gaffe)
Washington Independent ^ | 10/21/09 1:30 PM | By David Weigel

Posted on 10/21/2009 12:31:52 PM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines

Michael Patrick Leahy, the Tea Party activist who has been going after NY-23 GOP candidate Dede Scozzafava with hammer and tongs, produces this photo of the candidate stumping today outside of one of Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman’s offices. Little-known fact: There are lots of campaign workers, and signs, in such offices, ready to be deployed.

Here’s some video from the presser.

LOL, Scuzzlebutt isn’t too bright is she? Looks like she brought her son with a sign he made in kindergarten for the event.

You have to presume the black guy standing next to her with the anti-Hoffman sign is an official campaign worker.

If so, being in a knit cap and sandals isn’t a very professional look. Either it’s cold (hat) or it’s not (flip-flops). He looks like he’s part of the Black Panther “snuff out the vote” project.

The moron holding the anti-Hoffman sign is wearing a ski cap and flip flops. Real class... plus he doesn’t know whether it’s summer or fall/winter. This is her “grassroots” support...

Good post. I was doing it at the same time.

Doug Hoffman is the Conservative alternative in this race (or Hoffman by PayPal).

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.

There are also 17 RINOs in the house who have donated funds to this LibeRal democRat's campaign. They include Boehner and Cantor. I don’t have a full list, but I will be looking for it. These unprincipled RINO enablers should be targeted for elimination in the primaries next year.

More threads ...
From the desk of
cc2k:
I support Doug Hoffman for Congress (PayPal).

Please, spread the word about this important election on November 3, 2009 in New York’s 23rd congressional district.

It’s pretty clear that her job is to get elected as a Republican liberal, or, failing that, to make sure that a Democrat gets elected.

According to Newt, this is the future of the Republican party--all the glamor, youth, and political acumen of a phony Catholic priestess.

If you look at his sign carefully, there is a colon after Hoffman
(ie, Hoffman: Stop Lying)

I think this may be another snafu by Scuzzlebutt.. they probably meant to say that Hoffman needs to stop lying, but with the colon, it reads that Hoffman is telling her to stop lying.

She is supported by Daily Kos, among other liberals. I would imagine she has a better chance of splitting the liberal/Democrat vote and getting Hoffman elected.

Good heavens, I hadn't actually SEEN this woman before.

She looks like what we used to call "dull-normal" at best. The slack mouth and expressionless eyes . . .

What were the NY Republicans thinking to put this woman up as the best they had to offer?

MSNBC was singing the blues last night saying that this marked the end of bipartisanship if this “moderate” goes down.

This is like steamship lines blaming the Titanic for the end of passenger shipping.

The way Scuzzlebutt is running her campaign, you would think she is working for Hoffman.

If so, being in a knit cap and sandals isn’t a very professional look. Either it’s cold (hat) or it’s not (flip-flops). He looks like he’s part of the Black Panther “snuff out the vote” project.

Don't laugh at the hat. He needs it to hide the lobotomy scars.

"Looks like her campaign is “going south”"

Check out her RV. If those decorations are an indication of her strategy, it is clearly going south.

I hope those placards didn't cover up the required "dede" drain valve.
