Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

Dierdre Scozzafava Quits

Scozzafava was the Republican candidate for NY-23, chosen by the Party, endorsed by 11 county party heads, endorsed by the news paper and was the likely winner in this heavily Republican district. But then Conservative Party nominated Doug Hoffman -- doesn't live in the district but is a tea bagger favorite. The Republithugs starting supporting him over Scozzafava.

Chris Kelly says it best:
.. . a traveling freak show of evil creeps who want to use a misguided mediocrity to jerk around the people of upstate New York for shits and giggles.

To Glenn Beck, Gary Bauer, Sean Hannity, Michele Bachmann, Michelle Malkin, Dick Armey and, yesterday, like the churning of milk bringing forth butter and the wringing of the nose bringing forth blood, to Sarah Palin's Facebook page.

It's like Commissioner Gordon lit up the batshit signal.

He also has the support of the Club for Growth, the National Review, the Weekly Standard and Human Events. Or, as Sarah Palin puts it:

And best of all, Doug Hoffman has not been anointed by any political machine.

She's still got it.

He hasn't just been anointed by a political machine. He's been kidnapped by drifters.

So in the face of these crazies Scozzafava, the Republican candidate for the open 23rd District seat in New York, suspended her campaign.

Red State is doing a victory lap saying that either Republican must join the tea baggers or be purged.

I hope the voters vote in their best interest and don't let themselves be led by these thugs.
