Now that she’s dropped out, the “moderate” Republican Scozzafava running for the Congressional seat in NY23 is quietly telling supporters to vote for the Democrat Owens and not the Conservative Hoffman according to a report. If true, this proves the point of the conservatives regardless if win or lose. The GOP put up a Democrat in Republican clothing for a special election and yet they wonder why there was a backlash from the base?
No one really disagrees that the party needs to be diverse, but that’s not what the moderates in the party are advocating. They want the conservatives banned from the party so they don’t have to go to their posh cocktail parties and get teased that within their party are hicks from Alabama.
UPDATE: And there you have it.
