Skip to comments.Enough (Steyn endorsed Hoffman in contentious House race)
Posted on 10/21/2009 4:42:00 PM PDT by ellery
On NY-23, I'm with Fred Thompson and Jack Fowler: A Conservative can win in a three-way race, and Doug Hoffman is deserving of your support.
Newt really needs to re-think his support for Dede Scozzafava. This isn't RINO but DIABLO - Democrat In All But Label Only. It's not one of those "socially liberal, fiscally conservative" bi-swinger deals not when you're pro-"stimulus", pro-cash-for-clunkers. And the reductive argument that her sole redeeming value - a willingness to vote for John Boehner as Speaker is reason enough to support her is silly in a special election. If he's ever Speaker, Boehner won't be till January 2011, and it's 12 months premature for Newt to be telling voters they need to suck it up and accept that a handful of Jim-Jeffords-in-embryo-form are necessary for the Republican tide.
But beyond all that there's now a competence issue: Since the cop-calling and its aftermath, the candidate has demonstrated that there is no case for her whatsoever. At this stage in the nation's affairs, Washington doesn't need another incoherent buffoon insulated by a phalanx of thin-skinned twerps already guarding her like a 30-year incumbent for whom routine questions are an outrageous form of lèse-majesté. By any reasonable measure, this candidate is unworthy of a seat in the national legislature.
The tea parties and town halls were a response not just to Obama but to the 2006/2008 GOP. If Dede Scozzafava wins, it's a loss a serious loss for those voters who believe irresponsible spending by feckless federal mediocrities will deny future generations any shot at the American Dream. If Doug Hoffman wins, as I believe he can, great. But, if he doesn't and the seat falls to the Dem, it will be a cautionary tale for party leaders who, as in NY-23, make choices that confirm everything a disgruntled base thinks of them.
From the article:
“At this stage in the nation’s affairs, Washington doesn’t need another incoherent buffoon insulated by a phalanx of thin-skinned twerps already guarding her like a 30-year incumbent for whom routine questions are an outrageous form of lèse-majesté.”
Love the phrase..word...”DIABLO”
Yep Steyn has been on the ball on this for a couple of days now. With Limbaugh mentioning this today, I think the conservative might be able to win this.
Newt. Is there any reason to be talking about him anymore?
The cop-calling incident should be used every way it can. This indicates her mindset.
Please donate to Doug Hoffman’s campaign. Thanks.
I do, too—love it!
“Newt. Is there any reason to be talking about him anymore?”
I hope this finally settles that...
Sung to the song “maria” from Westside Story.....
“DIABLO ! DIABLO! I JUST MET A GIRL NAMED DIABLO!”
Newt WAS on the rise......BYE-Bye Newtie!
Fred Thompson audio clip on this race!
Liberal Impersonating A Republican
Steyn nailed it! DIABLO lol!
Well said, Mr Steyn, Canada's greatest export.
Rush did a great job today tearing the GOP for choosing this Hillary clone as the nominee; thankfully the Conservative Party exists to stop this nonsense. I don’t believe she’ll be elected, although the Democrat may be.
No shit! I used to think Newt was quite the guy...now he's just an inside the beltway whiner...
