Politico ran a piece yesterday entitled Republican Dirty Tricks in NY 23, but it’s a misleading title to a misleading article. Here’s the “dirty trick”;
It’s an ad run by an organization calling itself Common Sense in America which supports Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate – so how is it a “Republican dirty trick”? Now, as to the “dirty trick” portion – it would be a dirty trick if the ad mentioned things that Scozzofava didn’t really support – but it doesn’t. Throughout the article, the Scozzafava team criticizes the group that made the commercial, but they don’t mention the actual content. So there’s nothing misleading in the commercial – if you want a progressive representing you in Congress, vote for Scozzafava.
Hoffman is going to take this election. I lived in NY23 for seven years and I know the voters. They get New York City nonsense thrust upon them and they’ve watched the entire area deteriorate into a wasteland because of liberal policy.
According to the latest poll (commissioned by the Daily Koz), undecided voters are at 14% – they’ll swing to Hoffman, just to show their independence from the rest of the State. They’re fiercely conservative and independent and Hoffman does indeed represent them.
You watch – my ability to call elections has been faulty in the last few years, but I’m confident about this one.
