    Why?

    What we need is an electorate that votes for the right reasons, and cares.

    We haven't had that for a very long time.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Although it sounded like Scozzafava was the better candidate, this looks like the most likely way to keep the seat.

    For what it's worth, they've said that he's absolutely not related to the campaign. The only evidence that the guy had anything to do with the campaign is the fact that he had two tickets to the Obama fundraiser and that he worked for DNC get out the vote 3 years ago. I don't see how that reflects on Corzine at all, even if he did work for him.

    Good, lets keep that southern (20 percent claim to be Republican) strategy working like a finely tuned engine.


    Washington Post News (washingtonpost.com)
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    thanks, what corzine's people say, however, is never gonna be real revealing

    i'd be a teeny interested in verification of exactly what the pusher had in the way of campaign props

    for instance, if that's what the corziners are claiming...

    but only scantly curious, like i say, as of now

    cuz there's the truth and then there's politics, and the two often have little to do with each other

    that is, right now, the story where i'm at is "a staffer got busted"

    of course, i'm about as far from NJ as one can get, i can't presume to know much

    i'd be quite interested if/when THAT headline changes

    how much are people out there even talking about this in the first place?

    of course, I'M trumpeting it (more like a kazoo), but we all know my mean little agenda

    fill me in, what's the skinny in joysey?

    is this story of the "staffer" pushing E near a hi school even a blip?

    sure, upstate new york rides its "southern strategy" to victory

    Absolutely. The national GOP should adopt this same strategy. Cast off the moderates and independents. Focus on the teabaggers and ultra-right wing.
    I think this is a marvelous idea.

    republicans are running against obama-ism

    it's working bigtime

    even if corzine wins by a point, it's a 20-ish point flip since inauguration day

    Re: Scozzafava Suspends Campaign

    the washington post by all accounts has been shilling pretty hard for deeds for weeks

    the post featured a 7 day series on mcdonnell's 20 year old college thesis in which the paleocon made knuckle dragging comments about women in the workplace, for instance

    today, the post blares a banner---Independents Flocking to McDonnell

    Independents flocking to Republican in race for Va. governor - washingtonpost.com

    61%, says the post

    deeds has given up on centrists, continues woodward's rag

    25% of those who voted for kaine (sitting dnc chair, keep in mind) now back the R

    the subline in the post, however---Centrist Message Helps GOP Candidate---couldn't be farther off the mark

    i saw mcdonnell myself interviewed by sean just last thursday

    the candidate's campaign is hardly centrist

    i was surprised not at how far right is this particular R---he wrote those theses, after all

    but i was quite interested in how conservatively mcdonnell is campaigning

    and how focused he is on NATIONAL issues

    cap and trade, health care, bailouts, the stimulus, taxes, spending, deficits, card check

    commuter issues in N VA are also a major problem, admittedly

    mcdonnell actually ran an ad accusing deeds of "dithering" on taxes

    no, the gop is running AGAINST OBAMA

    and the entire non-partisan nation is buying in

    obama won the commonwealth by 7

    the old dominion, like the garden state, has moved 20 points my way since inauguration day

    deal with it

    Scozzafava Endorses Democrat After Dropping Out of N.Y. Congressional Race

    Scozzafava Endorses Democrat After Dropping Out of N.Y. Congressional Race - FOXNews.com

    Republican Dede Scozzafava endorses Democrat Bill Owens in the race for New York's 23rd Congressional District, one day after dropping out of the race.

    Republican Dede Scozzafava endorsed her former Democratic opponent Sunday in the race for an upstate New York congressional seat, one day after Scozzafava dropped out of the contest.

    Scozzafava dropped out after Conservative Party candidate Dough Hoffman experienced a late-in-the-game surge. But on Sunday, Scozzafava backed Democrat Bill Owens -- the announcement was made in a statement send out by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

    "I am supporting Bill Owens for Congress and urge you to do the same," she said. "In Bill Owens, I see a sense of duty and integrity that will guide him beyond political partisanship. He will be an independent voice devoted to doing what is right for New York. Bill understands this district and its people, and when he represents us in Congress he will put our interests first."

    Hoffman and Owens are competing for the 23rd Congressional District seat formerly held by Republican John McHugh, who was lured away by the Obama administration to be Army secretary.
    This should settle any questions remaining as to whether Scozzafava was ever a Republican.
    I would think that this move will in fact insure a Democrat loss just beacuse it should upset no end people who were going to vote for Scozzafava just because Republican was attached to her candidacy.

    Can't wait to see what happens next come Tuesday.
