Blogging Tory Maria ("Dodo hates immigrants") Nunes rummages around in Sarah Palin's panty drawer and comes up with more mindless adoration:
So ... how'd that work out, Maria? Oh:
Tea Party Over? Hoffman Concedes in NY-23, Democrat Owens Takes Seat Held by GOP Since '93 (Update: Rightbloggers React!)
Unsurprisingly, TBogg has a thought or two on the topic, but let's truly appreciate what happened here. Here's the money quote:
Democrat Bill Owens beat Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman in the down-to-the-wire race for New York's 23rd Congressional District -- portions of which have been represented by Republicans for more than a century.
In short, that district was, if history is any guide, as safe a GOP stronghold as you were likely to find anywhere, and yet ... and yet ... well, you saw what happened. And why did it happen?
It happened because screeching idiots like Palin mouthed off about the official GOP candidate (Dede Scozzafava) being, well, just too gosh-darned liberal and moderate and everything, to the point where they drove her clean out of the race, leaving the electorate to choose between the Democrat Owens and the howling, fundamentalist nutbar Hoffman, a choice which must have caused even lifelong Republicans to reel back in horror, then hold their noses and vote for Owens.
Attagirl, Maria -- you should take solace in the fact that your idol Sarah the Quitbull, given her outrageous and ignorant interference, pretty much handed that race to the Democrat. We can only hope we see more of this in the months to come.
