Scozzafava Endorses Owens

This race just gets nastier and nastier.

Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., was among those who urged Dierdre K. Scozzafava to endorse Democratic congressional candidate William L. Owens, the senator's spokesman said Saturday.

The spokesman, Maxwell Young, said the senator called a number of north country political leaders after Ms. Scozzafava suspended her campaign and had more than one conversation with the Republican candidate ahead of her announcement. He said the senator also called other Democratic leaders about the situation, including White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

The moonbatsw are ecstatic, calling Bill Ownes a "conservative Democrat," and saying that if Republicans lose the seat, it will have "national significance." Don't believe that whistling in the dark for a moment.

Instead, I have to agree with Robert Stacy McCain that what it really shows is that Scozzafava isn't really a Republican when the going gets tough. I don't mind her arguments about local issues being important (Hoffman is clearly not as well-versed on them), but endorsing the Democrat is just sleazy.

Typically, I would judge a campaign by its enemies, and this one is no different.

And just for Perry, here's a link to Frank Rich's column where he calls conservatives Stalinists for having the audacity to disagree with party leaders!
Political groups other than MoveOn spending money to sway the electorate? Why, it’s Stalinism.

Can't have those little people expressing an opinion on their candidates, don't you know. That would mean we're not the mind-numbed robots Democrats believe.
