Except that most Republican voters supported the Conservative.
Reflexively supporting the County Chairmen -- in opposition to the voters -- ain't the smartest trick in the world.
Palin endorsed Hoffman, the CONSERVATIVE candidate in the race. Scozzafava got just enough support to got Hoffman the election. Therefore, Newt is culpable in that loss.
Newt Gingrich is a serious candidate for serious thinkers experiencing serious issues. Ok, so maybe Newt is a moderate Republican, don’t support him. However, his criticism of Obama is real, his love for this country is real, his experience is superior to any candidate, and he will run circles around Obama with his knowledge. He has supported a vast number of conservative candidates and bills in his vast number of years in the government. Be sure and scrutinize him for the handful of issues he didn’t follow along right wing party lines, you will end up with Mitt McCain losing against Barrack Obama.
