commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Scozzafava drops out of the race for the House from NY's 23th District…..

Moderate republicans are being hunted down by the parties conservatives………

Dede Scozzafava backed abortion rights and gay marriage, but was a republican…..And for that she was on her own with her party (and voters according to dropping poll numbers)…….Which forced her to drop out of the race in upstate New York’s 23rd House District….

On Tuesday..it will be Owens (D) against Hoffman (R)….And the race is close…….

Update:….here is a post on the NRCC flip-flop on Hoffmen…….and 11% of Scozzafav’s voters where democrats…where do they go?…..

  1. I suspect that the evangelical dominance in the Republican Party will result in the party being relegated to a third party. I wonder if we may see a shift from the two parties we have known? At any rate, if traditional republicans are leaving, it is not because they have suddenly become democrats. Rather, they are being pushed out. I have posted that this will hurt the GOP.

  2. Thanks for the link…..I agree this can only result in cutting the moderate republicans out of the party….third party?…nah, doesn’t work in American politics these days…the drop outs will just call themselves independents…..which is the group that almost always decides every election these days……
