    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.

    She was actually to the right of average of her co-elected-partisans in New York. She's solidly a New York Republican. More conservative than the average New York Republican.


    Interesting on the endorsement, though!

    I don't believe the the title Conservative applys to anyone who is pro Abortion or pro amnesty. And yes i know Reagan brought us the Amnesty debacle of 1986, but we learned (or should have) that it was and is a major mistake. She might be slightly more right than Dims (no spell error) but as a Conservative she misses the mark.

    Can't wait to see what happens next come Tuesday.
    Conservative candidate in a Conservative district will win. Another Bushnevik supporter bites the dust. Now the district will truly be represented by a Conservative. The Democratic opponent is toast.

    If you were a conservative, you'd be jumping with glee.

    You're kidding right? She was endorsed by Markos Moulatasis (sp?) of DailyKOS fame, and by the Working Families party, as well as ACORN. Yeah, that kind of 'right' we don't need.....I am doin' a happy dance!

    Perhaps 'Conservatives' can't even recognize somebody who's not on the right of Rush Limbaugh. Perhaps the Republican candidate endorsed the Democrat because he's more to the center than the 'Conservative' candidate. We now see how easy it is to be backstabbed by the group that once supported you. Also, who are you to proclaim that a political figure isn't a conservative? Do you adhere to every principle that conservatives adhere to? Don't be a hypocrite.

    Yeah that's it...pejoratives never help an argument. I would ask you the same, but I know a truth...And that is those who stand for nothing, will fall for anything.

    Man this has got to help the grand old party.



    Republican Scozzafava Endorses Democrat After Exiting N.Y. Congressional Race



    <Republican Dede Scozzafava endorsed her former Democratic opponent Sunday in the race for an upstate New York congressional seat, shaking up the contest for the second day in a row after exiting the race Saturday.

    Scozzafava dropped out after Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman experienced a late-in-the-game surge. The move was expected to consolidate GOP voters behind Hoffman on Tuesday.

    But on Sunday, Scoz>

    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
