Ross Douthat gets in touch with his inner teabagger
Posted by Jill | 5:11 AM
Ross Douchebag thinks that Doug Hoffman has injected "real substance" into the NY-23 campaign:
If it weren’t for Doug Hoffmann, a Lake Placid accountant running on the Conservative Party line, the battle to represent New York’s 23rd Congressional District would have been a Tweedle-Dee-Tweedle-Dum affair, featuring a Republican, Dede Scozzafava, who’s arguably more liberal than her Democratic opponent, Bill Owens.

Daggett has annoyed conservatives. By positioning himself as a policy-oriented centrist, he’s peeled away enough independents to play the spoiler in a race that seemed like Christie’s to win.

Hoffmann has irritated liberals. Scozzafava was their kind of Republican, and by derailing her candidacy — which she suspended over the weekend after polls showed her slipping to third place — he’s turned a sleepy contest between two left-of-center politicians into an ideologically-charged election.

But both men deserve the public’s gratitude. They’ve injected real substance into their races, and they’ve given voters a much more interesting choice than they would have otherwise enjoyed.

Here's the "real substance" on Hoffman's web site:
I'm running for Congress because I sense the America I love is being taken away from us. I want to tell Washington: No more bailouts. No more taxes. No more trillion dollar deficits. That's what I'm fighting for.

My opponents have bought and paid for $876,000 in TV ads. I urgently need to raise $125, 000. Immediately.

My opponent is a Nancy Pelosi Democrat. Defeating him comes down to one cold, hard fact – money.

In 1980, I helped Lake Placid with our Olympics when the US beat the Russians in hockey – the same year Reagan was elected. It’s time to send Washington a new message now.

Still no position papers on the issues, just vague red boilerplate meat thrown at the idiots. Funny how he's deleted references to ACORN and gay marriage since he became the only show in town. Maybe he thinks moderates and independents have short memories.

Yes, Hoffman is going to go to Washington and say "No more bailouts, no more taxes." And Washington will cow in fear. Yeah. Right. And isn't it hilarious how it was Doug Hoffman, not the 1980 U.S. hockey team who "beat the Russians" in hockey at the 1980 Olympics. I don't even know what this sentence means.

Hoffman is another raving lunatic, another Tom Tiarht (KS - Teabag) and Louie Gomer (TX - Moron). If upstate New York elects this guy, good freaking luck. We have one of these in the person of Scott Garrett, and these ideologues do NOTHING for their districts.

Me thinks that Ross Douthat doesn't get laid much. He doesn't do that much I guess. (ps. he's a terrible writer, how did he get such high paying gigs?)
