Interestingly enough, although not surprisingly, the GOP establishment is supporting a democrat light candidate in Dede Scozzafava in New Yorks 23rd Congressional District; she’s pro-abortion, pro-big government and pro everything liberals stand for. The Republican machine is making the mistake that got them into the predicament that they’re in; trying to appeal to what they “think” will win, instead of pushing a conservative message. Entering the fray, Sarah Palin endorses Doug Hoffman, the one true conservative in this race.
Via her Facebook page, where Gov. Palin likes to communicate most these days, she wholeheartedly endorsed Doug Hoffman for New York’s 23rd Congressional District. The Republican establishment can’t be happy about this.
Dede Scozzafava, despite being endorsed by Newt Gingrich and taking tons of GOP money has not warmed to the heart of Conservatives throughout the district and the country. Most conservatives see the GOP’s backing of Scozzafava as more of the same ole’ same ole’ that handed the radical left wing control of the White House and the Congress.
Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Doug Hoffman will surely be a test for her; a test to see if her name carries as much weight as I and a lot of others thinks it does. Backing Hoffman means going against the Republican establishment. But it also means standing for Conservative principles; the one thing lacking in the GOP right now.
Another interesting tid-bit to this story, Mike Huckabee, the man some believe to be the heir apparent to the GOP nomination for President, has refused to publically endorse Doug Hoffman. I’d love to hear from you Huckabee supporters out there why the Huckster won’t throw in behind Hoffman.
The GOP backing Dede Scozzafava unsettlingly shows us where the mind of the Republican party is. On the flip side, as Sarah Palin endorses Doug Hoffman, she triumphantly shows us where her mind is.
