Doug Hoffman — member of the 9/12 and “Tea Party” movements, sits by while talk radio giant Mark Levin calls Assemblymember Scozzafava”Arlen Specter in drag,” claims that President Obama is “taking away our liberties, taking away our rights,” pulls out of a debate at the last minute, and generally doesn’t so much “have ideas” as an uncanny ability to sit quietly while Glenn Beck talks at him.
Pure class. I defer to Assemblymember Duprey (R) for more:
This is a campaign for Congress — not an audition to be a talking head on a cable news program. Doug Hoffman doesn’t live here, he doesn’t understand our local issues and, regardless of his campaign’s theatrics and false polls, he knows he is completely unelectable. Make no mistake about it — Doug Hoffman is a spoiler, and by staying in this race he will jeopardize a seat the Republican Party has held here since the Civil War. It’s high time that Hoffman puts the good of this community over his personal ambition and endorses our Republican nominee Dede Scozzafava.
