I was pleased to return and find out that extreme liberal RINO (Republican In Name Only) Dede Scozzafava had bowed to the pressure (likely the pressure from that National GOP, who apparently bowed to the pressure of conservatives like me and many of you) and withdrew from the race for New York's 23rd Congressional seat, clearing the way for true conservative Doug Hoffman. Now the party flacks who once blew Hoffman and us off and told us to vote for Scozzafava and keep quiet are now sheepishly coming over and getting behind Hoffman, who, I suspect, will now sweep this race.
I hope that when he gets to Congress, he maintains his conservative positions and tells the moderates (traitors) in the GOP to bite him when they start trying to pull him to the left. Hopefully he remembers that they weren't there for him but we conservatives were, and we're the ones who made this happen.
And I'm proud to be able to say that I was a vocal (and financial) supporter of Hoffman before the GOP belatedly got on board. I put my time and money down behind real conservatives and if the party wants any more money from me next year, then they need to get behind more Hoffmans and walk away from liberal sellouts like Scozzafava or John McCain.
Oh--and I have to note that Scozzafava, in what was either a glaring example of sore loser-ship or a revealing display of her true colors, has endorsed Bill Owens, the Democrat in that race, instead of Hoffman. With Republicans like her around, who even needs a Democratic Party?
Edited to add: It appears that the National Republican Party and it's state arm gave Scozzafava over a million dollars for her campaign, according to a report on Michelle Malkin's site. And she still repaid them by endorsing the Democrat when she quit. This woman seriously needs to be tarred and feathered and led around the country as an example of what an ungrateful traitor really looks like.
