NY-23’s Mission Accomplished Moment: Thanks For Coming Out, Kids

Ban-happy GOP purity gatekeeper Eric Erickson struggles with maintaining his already tenuous hold on reality as he gamely attempts to squeeze broken eggshells into lemonade (or something):

The race has now been called for Democrat Bill Owens.

This is a huge win for conservatives.

“Whaaaa. . . ?” you say.

There are two big victories at work in New York’s 23rd Congressional District.

First, the GOP now must recognize it will either lose without conservatives or will win with conservatives. In 2008, many conservatives sat home instead of voting for John McCain. Now, in NY-23, conservatives rallied and destroyed the Republican candidate the establishment chose.

I have said all along that the goal of activists must be to defeat Scozzafava. Doug Hoffman winning would just be gravy. A Hoffman win is not in the cards, but we did exactly what we set out to do — crush the establishment backed GOP candidate.

And make no mistake, despite the Beltway spin, we know for certain based on statements from the local Republican parties, that they chose Scozzafava based on advice from the Washington crowd.

So we have demonstrated to the GOP that it must not take conservatives for granted. The GOP spent $900,000.00 on a Republican who dropped out and endorsed the Democrat. Were we to combine Scozzafava and Hoffman’s votes, Hoffman would have won.

Yes, and if only Bill Owens had been kidnapped by bug-eyed extraterrestrials from Ganymede, Scozzafava and Hoffman’s votes could have combined to form a giant robot that would crush godless liberalism once and for all!

If only.

TBogg tickles the 800lb gorilla in a navy power suit/red tie combo:

And Erick and Sarah Palin and Fred Thompson and Rush Limbaugh and Tim Pawlenty and George Pataki and the New York Post all endorsed Doug Hoffman and now the Republican Party (that Erick wants purged of nonbelievers) should listen to  him because the teabaggers favorite son just lost a seat that Republicans have held for 140 years.

Right. This makes sense.

Pssh. Wevs. Pay no attention to the greaser in waterskis sporting a Palin 2012 button:

  1. This whole election cycle was really just a barometer for how the country feels. Clearly the GOP bleeding has stopped. Tea parties and huge protests have taken place all while Obamba’s poll numbers have dropped faster than any President in recent History. Regressives and the Media have tried to marginalize their opposition as much as possible, calling them Mobs, Nazi’s, Astroturf, and Unpatriotic … all while a small number of arrogant far left radicals write Healthcare Policy in a secret room 1900 pages worth. CFLF blindly follows whatever Pelosi/Reid put out there without question nor curiosity.

    Certainly NY 23 was a loss for the GOP, they fumbled the ball, picked the wrong candidate and lost the seat. Perhaps Democrats won ONLY because of GOP error. That said, the night as a whole should be more scary for Regressives … sure the NY 23 seat was in GOP hands for 100 years .. but Obamba and Hillary both recently carried those districts.

    While Hoffmann may have lost this battle, Conservatives sent a big message to elected officials aound the nation .. and put in a good showing in NY 23. This whole idea of Conservatives litmus tests to run in the Republican Party is just over analyzed. Democrats are at War with each other, can’t even get all their members to vote for Pelosi/Reid Health Care, something Obama see’s as critical to his efforts … and when is the last time Dems highlighted a Pro Life Candidate? … so both parties are in flux right now, end of story.

    Uh, what actually happened was that a conservative lost due to lack of support from moderate Republicans, not the other way around. Talk about losing one’s grip on reality.

    It’s a win-win for us. The teabagger right has learned the wrong lesson and is about to rampage through the GOP purging more moderates and replacing them with hard-liners who will lose in 2010. And we don’t even have to pay the price of Hoffman actually taking a seat in the House.
