    Scozzafava Suspends Campaign

    1. Scozzafava suspends.

    2. The future of the GOP is NOT rhino.

    3. Opposition to extremism is NEVER moderate.

    4. A Reagan will arise.

    5. As certain as physics is politics, vacuums must be filled.

    6. Virginia goes RED by double digits.

    7. Gov, Lt Gov and AG---only the second time in the records of the Commonwealth.

    8. Health care is dead, dogs must stray.

    9. McDonnell has been campaigning, most unnaturally, on NATIONAL issues---cap and trade, health care, spending, deficits, stimuli, bailouts, card check.

    10. And LOOK where it's gotten him.

    11. Corzine may hold on by his whispy hair in Trenton, tho all media winds gust against the Goldman Sachs CEO.

    12. Gibbs yesterday gibed, the gubs "don't portend much."

    13. Obama sure has been galloping an awful lot of ground in the Garden State for a prez who perceives no portent.

    14. Still, all know---were there no third party Daggett, the incumbent in New Jersey, as dark blue a state as any in the nation, would also trip by ten.

    15. It is what it is.

    16. It portends what it portends.

    Dede Scozzafava, the Republican and Independence parties candidate, announced Saturday that she is suspending her campaign for the 23rd Congressional District and releasing all her supporters.

    The state Assemblywoman has not thrown her support to either Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate, or Bill Owens, the Democratic candidate.

    "Today, I again seek to act for the good of our community," Ms. Scozzafava wrote in a letter to friends and supporters. "It is increasingly clear that pressure is mounting on many of my supporters to shift their support. Consequently, I hereby release those individuals who have endorsed and supported my campaign to transfer their support as they see fit to do so. I am and have always been a proud Republican. It is my hope that with my actions today, my party will emerge stronger and our district and our nation can take an important step towards restoring the enduring strength and economic prosperity that has defined us for generations."

    Ms. Scozzafava told the Watertown Daily Times that Siena Research Institute poll numbers show her too far behind to catch up - and she lacks enough money to spend on advertising in the last three days to make a difference. Mr. Owens has support from 36 percent of likely voters in the poll, with Mr. Hoffman garnering 35 percent support. Ms. Scozzafava has support from 20 percent of those polled.

    This is aces good news.
    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.

    Re: Scozzafava Suspends Campaign

    What this does is send the message to all Republicans that the party is for the most part out of touch with the people, and that Conservative values mean more than the title Republican Candidate.
    I can't tell you how many times I have heard from Talk show people like Roger Hedgecock that Hoffman was going to split the vote and give the victory to the Dim (no spell error). This shows that values are more important and Scozzafava saw that as well since she was not really even close to being any kind of Republican, much like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
    This is really good news to the 40% of voters who call themselves Conservatives and shows the way for others to follow and adopt more of the core values and back bone Ronald Reagan showed us works.
    It show also send a message to the Liberals, Socialist/Communists, and other lefties in the Congress and the Obama Administration that their time is short.
    But that will be true only if those who believe in the Constitution stand up and be counted and do what is needed to keep the Conservative message of God, Country and the Values this Nation was built on going strong.
    This is indeed great news.

    thanks for the feeback, friends, and, of course, i agree

    some more dirt from the trail

    last week, daggett returned a loaner car (his was being worked on) with, unbeknownst to the candidate, a loaded gun under the seat

    his "driver," a retired cop, left it there

    Daggett's driver leaves loaded gun in car | dailyrecord.com | Daily Record

    for all i know, a loaded gun in a vehicle might enhance a candidate's chances in new jersey

    but last nite, a staffer for corzine was caught with drugs for sale within 100 feet of a hi school

    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/c...Z0ZRfYDxgrAh3N

    ecstasy tablets, wrapped as if for distribution

    the punk was pulled over for talking on his cell phone

    the corziners claim they never heard of the creep

    but he had campaign paraphernalia in his pinto

    and more problematic paraphernalia, as well, apparently

    E for preppies can't help

    keep watching

    the post link won't copy, it's on drudge

    'Corzine staffer' Busted with Drugs
    By ANGELA MONTEFINISE

    Last Updated: 12:53 PM, October 31, 2009

    A man who identified himself as an official with New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine's re-election campaign was arrested last night after cops found found ecstasy tablets wrapped and ready to be sold in his car, police said.

    Jason Shih, 25, was pulled over by East Rutherford cops at about 11:30 p.m. last night because he was talking on his cell phone on Route 17, said Lt. Chris Conforti of the East Rutherford police.

    Officers wound up finding 19 "blue star" ecstasy tablets in Shih's car, each wrapped in its own little plastic bag.

    Shih -- who was stopped within 100 feet of Becton Regional High School -- also had had "several hundred" empty plastic bags in his car, Conforti said.

    Shih told police he worked for Corzine's campaign, and had several campaign-related items in his car, police said.

    Corzine spokeswoman Elisabeth Smith said Shih is not on the payroll of the campaign or the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, and that the campaign doesn't know who he is.

    Shih was charged with possession of drugs, possession of drugs in a school zone, intent to distribute drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also charged with two motor vehicle violations -- driving while using a cell phone and having drugs in his car.

    Conforti said the criminal charges all carry jail time and heavy fines.

    Shih, of Paramus, NJ, was released on $15,000 bail, Conforti said.

    Corzine, a Democratic incumbent, is locked in a tight battle with Republican challenger Christopher Christie in the race for New Jersey governor that will be decided Tuesday.

    I think what it means is the extremes are taking over the GOP. Hoffman doesn't live in the district, and when interviewed by the editorial board of the local paper, showed up with Dick Armey (instead of alone), couldn't answer questions about local issues, and allowed Dick Armey to say local issues are parochial issues.

    Hoffman isn't representing the people of that district, he isn't in touch with them at all, and actually doesn't even care about their local issues.

    Do the district's people even care about the local issues? Because I have a feeling that this was all a knee-jerk reaction by the electorate to all national issues at stake, which speaks mor of the liberal democrats, than it does for conservatives.

    Someone's reaction to something doesn't say anything about what they are reacting to, it says something about them.

    ny23 doesn't seem to agree with my classiest friend

    scozzafava certainly dissents, having received reliable word from district residents

    they preferred the conservative

    We need a viable 3rd and 4th party in US politics.
