Scozzafava Suspends Campaign
It looks more and more likely that the 23rd district of NY will be represented by Douglas Hoffman now that Scozzafava has suspended her campaign. Doug will win many votes based on his opposition to abortion and hatred of gays - important issues for many that vote the conservative line.
But you have to ask, when will socially conservative voters learn that conservative politicians want their votes but really aren't all that interested in overturning Roe v. Wade? They made this promise in 1994 and again in 2000. They held both houses of Congress and the Presidency and had a very conservative Supreme Court. They didn't do it then and they won't do it now. Conservatives want one thing, to protect big business and the rich, period. Doug is perfect for that job, after all, he is in the business of helping the rich evade income taxes.
Yeah, let the Teabaggin begin. Doug Hoffman, the saviour of the "common man", will lead the "regular people" to a new and better life. I would expect nothing less from the guy who helped the US Hockey Team defeat the Soviet Union in 1980.
