Pataki Endorses Hoffman
— Slublog

Dede Scozzafava, Newt Gingrich hardest hit.

As someone personally engaged in the way of life in the Adirondacks and Northern New York, I’m deeply concerned about the course of our nation and the outcome of the election in the 23rd Congressional District.

Simply put, we cannot afford to give another vote to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid we cannot afford another vote for higher taxes, we cannot afford another vote for government run health care and we absolutely cannot afford another vote to take away from hard working men and women the right to secret ballot.

That is why tonight, I’m proud to endorse Doug Hoffman, a Republican, running on the Conservative line for Congress in the 23rd Congressional District.

Newt Gingrich reacts to the news:

Thanks to DrewM for the Eric Carmen gag.

Which is a good reason not to waste a vote on the Republican if there's a Conservative in the race.

16 Hoffman wears some of the least pressed and most disheveled trousers I have ever ogled, with a saddened, jaundiced and crestfallen homoerotic desire.

18 Ok, this isn't a bad thing, but Pataki strikes me like the local, lower-IQ franchise of Newt.  So, one cheer; it's most important that Hoffman wins, but after that, it's most important that he appears to have won on the strength of a certain rogue, not the progeny of Al D'Amato,

Capiche?

23 If Conservatives split the Republican vote giving BHO a win, then too bad. Because voting Republican now is really voting BHO-lite so you may as well lose to either if you can't win Conservative.
Want to know how we got BHO and his brood in the White House?
A Republican President - that's how.
NOT a Conservative President.
Enough is enough. Conservative or bust now.

What makes you think Newt is so smart? He always struck me as a blathering boring bullshit artist. He was easily the most pedantic politician of the past thirty years.

He screwed up his political career, let the Clintons make mincemeat of him in 1995/6 and then threw his job away with a public affair. Ral genius, there.

I'm just glad his innate ability to self-destruct lasted just long enough to wipe him off the politcal map for 2012. He was a total disaster waiting to happen for the conservative movement, the dumb prick.

36 Newt jumped the shark named Pelosi on that sofa by the ocean, while he waxed mournfully about global warming. The guy is unelectable and leads no one, suffers from a clipped and terse pedantic diction, hasn't aided conservatives in any appreciable way since the nineties, and sports a serious addiction to guest spots with Hannity. Anyone recall his jabber about a "third way" for conservatives... that sounded suspiciously like industrial policy in the manner of Japanese government command and control of large economic interests? He has one thing in common with David Frum... he's not really a conservative.

42 Gingrich is too busy tonight to shed tears over this silly kerfuffle in NY-23. He has epoch-changing issues to review. He's examining 1900 pages of Pelosi Hellcare to find the choicest bits of 21st Century Solutions and Alternatives To Outdated Reagan Dogmas. There's something on almost every page he likes. As long as he gets to be on TV for his efforts.

46 Newt is invested in the GOP. He has that proverbial tenure that the machine so adores. GOP by itself or GOP with conservatism is fine by Gingrich. Conservatism sans GOP not so much.

I'm guessing he wants a guaranteed return on his investment of time and past efforts. The GOP apparatus will provide for him the most. I'm guessing a new focus where conservative principles trump personalities will not give him the status he now expects.

50 I think election day this year, in an off year, is getting very interesting.  Today a friend said that corezine is only taking a dollar in salry and has good connections that the state need so, even if she doesn't like a lot of what he has done, she is voting for him anyway.   She is the second person to say that voting for duggat will elect corzine so she might as well just vote for corzine.  She also is the second person to say that she doesn't want Christie to get in cause he will put the state through hell uncovering all the corruption and cleaning things up.  Seh basically said that Jersy makes NYC in the dinkins administration look like a bunch of choir boys and look how Guiliani had to clean things up.  So, although she knows she is voting for corzine for all the wrong reasons, she is still voting for him.  so there you have it, the second person to tell me this kind of stuff iin three days.

51 The hand-wringers who argue that we all ought (cue the song) look for the GOP label don't get it. The GOP put Obama in the White House. Eight years of the 'compassionate conservative' Mumbler-In-Chief, a few terms of failed GOP leadership in Congress, and the American people voted in a complete nonentity with a nice suntan and - oh yeah - 'temperament'. And they gave the Congress to just about the worst bunch of statists the world's seen since Pol Pot got the boot. Either the GOP will be brought back, kicking and screaming, to something resembling basic principles or we will kick it to the curb and suffer through whatever it takes to build something better.

59 I have some inside information on the Newt--Scuzzyfavor--Pelosi love triangle, and I'm warning you, it isn't pretty.

My sources tell me Scuzzy and Pelosi have both offered Newt a bipartisan Cleveland-Steamer if Scuzzy wins. Word is Newt was all tied up in the same bed he used to adulterate his career away, waiting for the love to begin, when he saw the latest polls showing Scuzzy's chances, and his own hopes, going down the shitter.

Word is he's really disappointed.

61 It's still beyond me why Newt gets credit for the Contract with America.

He was speaker, but the Contract and the good works done by the GOP in that era are something that Newt jumped onto.  If anything, he stopped it dead in its tracks.

Palin started the ball rolling on this race.  Many have followed her idea of endorsing, the same boost she gave Mccain has lifted Hoffman, and some have been proven a bit weak.  If someone out there wants to show us they are better at leadership than Palin, they had better step up to the plate quickly.

Actually, the only people voting for Dede will be those who go with the Kos endorsement. Boy, even when they're being Machiavellian, they still manage to step on their dick.

87 From Newsbusters:  Daily Kos 'Unendorses' Scozzafava in NY-23 After Original Endorsement Backfires

snip~


Here is Moulitsas realizing that he had a big mouth with his endorsement and is now "gaming it out" in a laughably absurd explanation about why his original endorsement wasn't really an endorsement:

I have no love for the Democrat, Owens, and I clearly have no love for Scozzafava in that post, so only an idiot would construe that as an "endorsement". An endorsement implies love for the candidate being endorsed. I wish nothing but ill will for all candidates in this race. But the GOP is full of idiots, and they've run strong with it, making my "endorsement" part of their anti-Scozzafava narrative. And now we're in a situation in which the conservative candidate Doug Hoffman has a real chance of performing better than the Republican.

Um...please forgive me, Markos, for quoting you directly but let me repeat what you stated on October 1:

...So it's official, I'm rooting for the Republican to win.

You were "rooting for" the Republican to win and you even made it "official." If that's not an endorsement, then I don't know what is. Oh, you stated that an endorsement "implies love for the candidate being endorsed." Um...no it doesn't, Markos. Hillary Clinton eventually endorsed Barack Obama for president last year. Do you actually think this implied love on her part?

Moulitsas then tries to distance himself for the harm his original endorsement caused:

So I'm no longer rooting for a Scozzafava victory. That gets us nothing. And I'm not rooting for a Hoffman victory, and I'm certainly not rooting for Owens because I'm over Lieberdems.

I'll leave it to others to try and squeeze out my "endorsement" from that steaming pile of dog s--t.

But I'm rather pleased I've been used to attack Scozzafava by the likes of Club for Growth and Glenn Beck. Such mischief is almost Rovian!

88 This just in.  John Boehner endorsed Dede Scozzafava in September.

What could go wrong for the Republicans?

Newt isn't a lone wolf.  He runs with a pack.

Newt's not all by himself . I think Dee Dee is hawt !

We'd make a hell of a tag- team at a Golden Corral. It'd be like the Running Of The Bulls, only indoors and in a buffet line.

93 I think that for the next few months, everytime the RNC mails me some BS, I'm going to write HOFFMAN on it with a large sharpie and send it back to them.

I've been wondering what to do with all those "official surveys" that don't have any space for me to write what I really think...

Posted by: HeatherRadish at October 30, 2009 04:22 AM (NtiET)

94 HeatherRadish: Write HOFFMAN on the envelope too.  Most of the time those surveys are just opened to see if there are checks inside.

95 As of yesterday morning, Kos flipped from "I'm cool with Dede" to "Vote For Owens".

98 Why should Newt get credit for the Contract with America? I can't think of a single point that is still in force.
He saw it as a way to get power, not as a way to change government. The first is the political view, the second is the conservative view.
Newt is not, never was, and never will be a conservative.

100 Hmm, Owens gets no love from Kos, either? Sounds like he might be farther right than Dede, too. Interesting that the R in the race is furthest to the left.

Is there any real Republican who has NOT indorsed Hoffman?

Posted by: Vic at October 30, 2009 04:47 AM (CDUiN)

102 Ask for a refund...that gets their attention.

All of the congress critters that aren't voting the conservative line they promised should pay up.

Call the RNC, RCC, etc....ask when you should be receiving your refund.

Posted by: Shark at October 30, 2009 06:17 AM (SSZkW)

104 Newt should man up and just say he blew it on this one.  You can un-jump a shark, but it takes a bit of humility and well...you have to WANT to do it.  I see little humility or desire here.

Newt has rendered himself obsolete.

105 While stationed in Germany, I stored a multi warhead tipped missle in my ass. At least that's what the guy behind the dempster called it. He  had to put both his hands on my shoulders to stabilize himself while it was being positioned.

So you vacation in the Adirondacks during the summer.  Good for you, George!

But we still all know you're really from Peekskill.

110 If you want them to read, or at least notice, your comments to the RNC, RNCC, etc.; print them on your computer, and cut the paper to the size and shape of a check. Put that in the envelope, and they will slice themselved to ribbons with paper cuts trying to get to it. They may round-file it, but they will notice it. If you write on the envelope, they will just throw the whole thing away unopened. Subotai Bahadur
