Heh, it looks like Newt Gingrich picked another Arlen Specter!


Scozzafava goes to bed with the enemy!

Endorses Working Families Party Candidate, goes with Union roots over Republican sensibilities.

It didn’t take long for the RINO to show its true colors!  We’re waiting for her to break out her ACORN T-shirt next.

It is time for the New York Republican Party to throw her overboard if it hopes to retain a shred of crediblity!

A new poll taken by the Minuteman PAC just a day after the Club for Growth poll shows an even greater increase in support for Doug Hoffman!

The Results:

Hoffman (C) – 34%
Owens (D) – 29%
Undecided – 23%
Scozzafava (R) – 14%

Real Clear Politics has the story.

This doesn’t mean he’s out of the woods yet.  That is a big undecided number and the Democrat political machine in Washington is just gearing up its direct assault on Hoffman.  With a 20% lead over Scozzafava it is time for the Republican to throw in the towel and back Hoffman in this race if she is really interested in keeping the seat out of Democrat hands.

Let’s hear what you have to say.

Newt Gingrich continues to get it wrong!

Hoffman cancels one on one debate with Scozzafava:

“Dede Scozzafava is plummeting in the polls,” said Hoffman spokesman Rob Ryan when asked why Hoffman decided not to attend. “She has become a spoiler in this race. The real race is between Doug Hoffman and Bill Owens.”

Quit, Dede, Quit!

GOP elephant dead

This morning I was shocked to read that the National Republican Congressional Committee had recruited Newt Gingrich to endorse their failed congressional choice for the NY 23rd Congressional District special election.  I quickly penned and sent a letter to Mr. Gingrich:

Dear Mr. Gingrich,

I read with disgust this morning that you are being called upon to provide an endorsement for the Republican candidate for New York’s 23rd Congressional District.

I will provide you some unsolicited advice.  Stay Away.

The people of the 23rd District deserve a choice on their election ballot.  The choice betwen Owens and Scozzafava is a choice between Democrat and Democrat-Lite.  With Owens being the Democrat-Lite candidate.

Both of those candidates are tainted by endorsements and support from the axis of corruption, ACORN, SEIU and WFP (Working Families Party).  I would not be caught dead voting for any candidate so tainted and I believe that any American reasonably informed about the background of those entities would agree.

We in the Tea Party movement have been working for real change in our elected reresentatives.  The fact that the Republican Party in New York State is so tone deaf as to nominate a liberal to run in a conservative district indicates that it is in a continued state of denial.  The ground has shifted.  We are fed up with corruption, cronyism, business as usual from both sides of the aisle, and we are willing to fight to effect that change.

I am a registered Republican, and, although I do not live in the 23rd District, I would be proud to pull the lever for a third party candidate such as Doug Hoffman, who reflects the values of the district, over a Republican who is a Republican In Name Only.

Some may say we would split the vote and lose the District.  I say the district has been lost for years with John McHugh, who sold his soul on Cap and Tax to secure his job as Secretary of the Army, and would still be lost if Scozzafava is elected.

If it takes the destruction of the Republican Party in New York to change its liberal mindset then so be it.

It is our battle to fight in every district in New York State, not yours.  You did great work in the 1990’s with the Contract for America and getting out of control spending under control.  Unfortunately those victories were frittered away in the years afterwards.  You have much to offer in advice and framing the argument, but that does not extend to preaching to those who kept up the fight in the years since.  Do not demean your stature by fighting for the wrong side of history.

The Margaret Sanger award winner?

And a dig at Scozzafava winning the Margaret Sanger award.

Upstate New York Tea Party (UNYTEA) held a health care Town Hall in Plattsburgh on Sunday.

The Democrat candidate for District 23 was a “no show”. He appears to be taking lessons from other Democrats who have been avoiding any public discussion of their plans to have government take over our national healthcare industry.


Conservative Doug Hoffman and Republican Dede Scozzafava showed up.

Many have commented that the Republicans could lose this Congressional seat for the first time in history because of the split between Republicans and Conservatives in Upstate New York.  Here is my opinion on the subject.

As far as Conservatives are concerned, the district has been lost for yearsJohn McHugh was a RINO, who paid for his appointment as Secretary of the Army by voting for the Cap and Tax proposal put forward by Nancy Pelosi.  With him gone the Republican leadership in the state put forth Scozzafava as a candidate to replace him.  Unfortunately, she is more liberal than her Democrat opponent.  She is exactly the wrong candidate to run in a conservative district.  Worse, from my perspective, is she was endorsed by the Working Families Party.

Anyone who has read this site knows about the triumvirate of corruption in New York State, the ACORN-SEIU-WFP axis, which is so mired in voter fraud and corruption that no conservative should ever vote for anyone who has ever been endorsed or supported by them.  We have had stories on their malfeasance here, here, here and here.  If you take their money or endorsement then you are guilty by association.  There is no other way to put it.

The Democrat candidate, Owens, has been endorsed by SEIU, so he is also tainted with the same stench.

The only candidate who has not been involved in that quagmire is Doug Hoffman.
