Hopefully this signals a change in attitude for the RNC, an organization dragged to supporting conservative values by conservative voters. The turnaround in NY-23 is inspiring--it shows the people are retaking control of the party. And that's some change we can all believe in.
Too bad the RNC wasted nearly $1 million dollars on the "Republican" who has pledged her support for the Democrat candidate...
UPDATE: House Minority Leader John Boehner is now regretting his support for Scozzy:
"This lady clearly has as agenda that's different than most Republicans; she was out there promoting herself," House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said, noting that he has encouraged all members of the GOP conference to support Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman.In addition, I enjoyed this response from user MLYSTER @ The Hill's blog:
No, Congressman Boehner, she doesn't have a different agenda from most sitting R's, OR D's: like most of Congress, she's out there promoting herself. Rather than principles. Which is the problem.Note to the NRSC and NRCC: This experience is a harbinger of things to come from your base. To paraphrase the movie '300': It won't be over soon; and, you won't enjoy it.
