NY-23, DeDe Scuzzyfavabean, etc...

I may be the last blogger on earth to get around to talking about the New York special election for House district 23. I'm kind of like the guy that walks the marathon - I may be last, but at least I try hard and I eventually get to the finish line. Also, I'm not from New York. I've never even been to New York, and I'm going to try like heck to keep it that way. This isn't a national election, but the entire nation and the higher-ups in the RNC are paying close attention. So for the rest of this post, when I say "we" I mean conservatives who are PO'd at the Republican Party - in New York and elsewhere.

Anyway, this election brings to mind a whole array of topics worth discussing. In no particular order:
  • First, some background. Back around 1990 or so, I worked at an auto parts store. There was one regular customer who had a giant mole on his neck. It was about the size of a grape cut in half, with about a half dozen LONG black hairs growing out of it. "Ah needah the frontah breakah pad fo '86 Mitsubishi" he'd say in a thick Asian accent, while twirling his molehairs between his fingers! It was extremely disgusting.

  • Well, Scuzzyfavabean is equally disgusting. She has been endorsed by ACORN, NARAL and Planned Parenthood. She recently won the bleepin' Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood! In other words, she's into corruption and cutting up babies. She's also pro-Card Check, which means she's into union thuggery. Daily Kos even likes her! About the only thing vaguely conservative about her is she's pro-gun. So am I. But so is Hezbollah, so YMMV. And she's about as telegenic as a baboon's bottom. Normally I'd try to be a little more civil in my treatments of a so-called Republican, but she is contemptible. No apologies forthcoming.

  • The pragmatists say we should support her, because she'd be better than the dem. While that is debatable, let's concede that for now instead of dithering on that point. Let's say she is slightly better and somehow wins. Then what? The only way to beat her would be through the primary process. Hard to unseat an incumbent in the primaries. So if she wins, we're going to have a liberal quasirepublican in the seat for a long time. Ugh. If we were one seat away from the majority and therefore one seat away from kicking Nancy to the curb, I may feel differently. But straining to install a liberal R instead of a liberal D when the liberal Ds will still have a huge majority is asinine. There is no reason to sell out our principles so egregiously for so little gain.

  • In fact, this is the PERFECT race to try to run an independent conservative. If he wins, great! We'll have another conservative in the House, and the RNC gets a serious wake-up call. (which they'll probably ignore 'cuz they suck). If the dem wins, but Hoffman makes it interesting, that will also be cold water in the RNC's face, and may embolden more conservatives to Go Rogue against the feckless beltway nosepickers running the GOP. Then just try again in 2010. The only thing that could go wrong would be for Scuzzyfavabean to actually win. That's worst-case, because the idiots at the RNC would then conclude that horrendous Scuzzyfavabean type candidates are the winning formula. If that happens, I'll recuse myself to my Undisclosed Location to await the End of Days.

  • Newt Gingrich (not from New York) endorses Scuzzyfavabean. When Palin, Pawlenty and many others (not from New York) endorse Hoffman, Newt tells them to quit meddling in local elections. Pot-Kettle-Shut-Yer-Flappin'-Lips, Newt. The reports I'm hearing lately are that Hoffman has all the momentum and Skuzzyfavabean is losing steam. Heh. I can't wait to see Newt try to explain his way out of that one. I'm thinking it will be as humorous as Brownback switching his vote on amnesty once he saw that it was bound to lose. Newt, go write a book about stargazing or insect life of the African savannah. Or even just go sit on the couch again with Nancy. Do whatever you want, just please stop endorsing ugly liberal idiots.

  • I don't have a problem with 3rd parties. Or 4th or 5th. Rush said today that this isn't even a 3rd party issue in NY-23. The present 2-party system is FUBAR, with two bloated, unresponsive parties. It needs to be shaken up. I'd like to see some other viable parties on both the left and the right. That would mean Congresscritters would spend more time worrying about maintaining their fragile coalitions and less time writing stupid laws. Imagine the trillions we could save.

  • The lefties are all happy about this situation in NY. They think it is win-win. If Hoffman loses, they'll claim it is a repudiation of conservatism. If Hoffman wins, they will claim it is proof the the GOP is slave to the conservative (racist old white guystm) wing of the party. Meh. Don't know what to think here. I guess I'll just let them be happy for a while. Because after 2010, they won't be doing much smiling for a long, long time.


  1. My gf lives in the district. Hoffman looks like he might actually win.

  2. We're going to have to find ways to support this guy. The smear machines will be charged up, and both sides will be going after him. He's going to have to be on his "A Game" every day, and not stop campaigning.

  3. Matt #1: So let it be written; so let it be done!

    Matt #2: Hoffman seems to get it. This could be truly historic.

  4. I Do live and work in NY....the RINOs have to grow a pair.

    And the RHINO's wonder why thy lose elections.

    We need another party.

  5. As one racist white old guy, I'd just like to say: Go Doug Hoffman!

  6. If the Dem wins ... SO F ing what. So Nancy ass gets one more vote. That seat will be up for election in a year. Then Hoffman can run in a real wild primary. The polls show him in the lead now, and I hope it wakes those McCain loving RINOs UP!

    McClintock in 2012 !!!!!

  7. IF the RNC doesn't consider this a wake up call, then they all need to be replaced as well. BTW, if anyone really wants to help Doug Hoffman out, then they can join a phone bank and make some calls on his behalf. It's not too late.

  8. I am fairly disgusted with the Republican Party overall, trying to make nicey-nice with the soviet thugs in the Demolishcrat party.

    They need to play hardball, get back to conservative policy, and drag the country back toward Reagan-ville.

    Never happen, though.


Family-friendly phrasing heartily encouraged.
