There’s One Less Liberal In The Race

NY 23 District Election has been a hot item on alot of radars.  The GOP thought they could slip another useless RINO under our noses, thereby assuring that what was once a great party, takes another squishy slide to the left.  Thankfully we’ve managed to get enough attention focused in that direction that a few more faux conservatives had to finally come out of the closet and reveal their Democrat/Liberal colors……

and that led to a great deal of attention on the candidates themselves.

Dede Skuzzface finally decided that the microscope fixed intently on her REAL political leanings was just too much.

So now the race is down to just ONE Liberal and one Conservative.   Hoffman is doing far better than the GOP would have liked, and he’s putting up a hell of a fight.   Good Luck to him.  Just getting that empty headed asshat Scozzafava to drop out is a major victory no matter what the outcome of the election.

Oh and Newt….Kiss My Ass….Bwaaahahahaha!!

    Doug Hoffman: RINO hunter!

    Looks like Sara Palin was right – again!

    Hey Newt, you can suck it. Why don’t you cry on your new buddy Barry’s shoulder.

    Political figures (visiting the obama white house) include former Sen. Thomas Daschle, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, former Gov. Howard Dean, Sen. Al Franken, former Vice President Al Gore, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, and Democratic strategist Steve Elmendorf.

    But you better hurry. I don’t think he’ll be in there for much longer.

    Of course, per the NY Times, she’s blaming it on money (she’s been outspent) and outsiders coming into her district. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/01/nyregion/01upstate.html?_r=1

    What’s most interesting to me is that George Pataki, our former governor, endorsed Hoffman. George Pataki was definitely a moderate Republican, but maybe that’s because in a state like NY, you’ll never get anything done if you’re too conservative, it just won’t fly.

    New York is a lot like Illinois, IMHO. NYC is very liberal, but upstate is conservative. Since NYC is the main economic engine of the state – and pays more taxes than the rest of the state – the Republicans have to trim their sails if they want statewide office.

    Illinois – Chicago is very liberal, but downstate is not. Chicago is also the main economic engine of the state.

    I’m curious as to whether the rest of you have seen similar dynamics in other states.

    Good news/bad news –

    Good news: there may still be some hope for our republic.

    Bad news: conservatives have to have the courage to stand alone and fight like hell against established party politics in order to bring that hope to fruition.

    oh absolutely…..here in Washington state, the western side of the state, which includes Seattle and Tacoma are irreversibly blue politically. You drive east for 90 minutes and cross the Cascade mountains and you’re in red state country. Unfortunately, there are three counties in Western Washington that carry the entire state during elections. these counties run north and south along Puget Sound and encompass the major population centers. It is these liberal bastions that determine the course for the entire state.

    this map shows the political breakdown of the state….pretty telling.

    Here in Arizona it is the opposite. Phoenix is very red and the communist indian reservations in the sticks are always blue.
    Its interesting she says “She’s releasing her support to the two other candidates.”
    Support to the other TWO candidates? If she really was a republican she would have released her support to the republican candidate no the demorat candidate.

    Same thing in Kalifornia……you have the welfare cases, illegals and hollywood libs in LA. Then the freaks in San Francisco and environs. And, to a lesser extent, Sacramento is mixed and Fresno, the bigger of the two is fairly conservative. San Diego has always been a military town. But the crazies on the coast, along with most of the shitties, have the votes. Anywhere else, meaning three fourths of the state, it is basically rural conservative types. We do strange shit, like grow food and meat.

    I read that somewhere. But the reality of it is becoming increasingly obvious. The urban/rural
    ideological and cultural divide deepens and broadens apace.

    I equate Gingrich with the labor unions…….they both were useful once upon a time.

    they’re cool to look at but they piss me off by eating all the salmon that I could be catching instead.

    Better for them that they stay with the seafood diet I guess, not many nutrients in your typical lib.

    Jaybear,

    My brother lives in Vancouver. He’s a definite Kool-Aid drinker so I guess he’s where he belongs but I’d miss my sister-in-law. :em99:

    I hope someone in D.C., like Ike Skelton, my representative, takes note. Obama got in office on a fluke, one that doesn’t include any coattails. Ike has been a shoo-in for 30 years maybe next year he’ll have a real run for a change.

    As for NY-23, it looks like someone in the Empire state has a pair. Go Hoffman.

    Ohio is generally a red state, but Cleveland, Toledo, Akron-Canton and Youngstown all vote heavily donk. Cincinnati is a pretty reliable conservative big-city and Columbus is hit-or-miss. Columbus is a RINO town.

    Where I am from, Findlay, we are a fairly consevative smaller city of 45,000. We are known as Flag City, USA and we are proud if that sesignation. Also, we are the hometown of Ben Roethlisberger.

    Mahoning County is mob run and only their canidates will run.

    Stark County used to be red, but the black hole of Canton (the hemmoroid of Ohio) sucked up all the oxgyen.

    Portage, Wayne, Columbiana and Carroll are all pretty conservative counties.

    Cleveland and Akron has turned into buckeyestan.

    I think we’d only need to get rid of Philly to make Pennsylvania a conservative state. I live in the Pittsburgh region, and most of the Democrats out this way are at the very least socially conservative. In the last State Senate election, the Democrat was more Pro-life than the Republican. In fact, there was almost no issue on which the Democrat wasn’t a better candidate than the Republican, both were conservative enough that I would have been happy with either of them!

    But Philly is a liberal haven that needs to go. It spoils things for the rest of us!

    I remember telling my first wife, as we went through Ohio on the way to CA .. ‘Now, bear in mind some people (most people) talk REAL SLOW here ….’ .. she didnt believe me .. so we pulled off to have dinner at this place near Dayton, and this waitress who must have been about 4,322 years old comes doddering up to us saying ‘Can …. I … help …… you?’

    She looked at the waitress like she had just been bitten .. lol!

    It took MAJOR willpower for me to not laugh at that moment .. :em95:

    GK, may I have DC? I plan on leaving Congress in place, cut the phone lines, jam all radio and television signals, surround the place with razor wire, and let the commie assholes sit there in the capitol and tax each other into oblivion. They’ll be legislators for life the way they want, but the rest of the country won’t be bothered by them anymore.

    LC BU1 IMotBP says:

    I kinda like your idea in a way, Ogrrre. But I think that it is important that people can see their government in action. Because of this I say surround Congress as you already plan, but instead of leaving them completely isolated we should make it America’s first Collosieum.

    Toss in a bunch o’ weapons and armor, schedule matches and sell tickets. It would be a much better show than watching them legislate each other to death.

    Then, in the end, when you only have one left you can give them the ultimate prize for having outlasted the rest. Make them head of whatever house they came from (Senate or Congress) and give them full control of both houses.

    After which we could promptly disband both houses and bulldoze the Capital… with the champion still inside of course.

    The aye of Newt doesn’t make such a great political potion, does it?

    Somebody slept in Potions class.
