Sarah Palin, Gamechanger [UPDATED]
Matthew Archbold writes:
A few weeks ago nobody had ever heard about Dede Scozzafava. And then Newt Gingrich endorsed her for the House seat (NY-23) for which she was already endorsed by the local Republican Party.
But then Sarah Palin, who Katie Couric recently referred to as a "sideshow" on the "fringe" of the party, endorsed a little known third party conservative candidate.
And then everything changed. Hundreds of thousands of dollars poured into conservative Doug Hoffman's coffers. National pundits focused their gaze on this New York district. Hoffman shot up in the polls despite the NRCC and RNC backing Scozzafava...
UPDATE (2 November)
More proxy war stuff in NY-23: Plugs picks a fight with Palin, and she kicks his @$$.
I suppose you have to admire the chutzpah of the idiot gaffe-o-matic putz of a Vice President who not only makes Dan Quayle seem like a frickin' genius by comparison, but who actually got his @$$ beat in a nationally televised debate (during which virtually every point he made was exposed as a lie) by the very person who he is trying to belittle with his condescending remarks.
God luv ya, Joe, STAND UP! Oh, what am I saying?
You are standing up, it's just that you're a mental midget.
