Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

In a move that will surprise the Uninitiated™ and damned few else, leftist bimboid, so-called “Republican” and Maggie Sanger Award-winner Dede “Scuzzball” Scozzafava endorsed her fellow Demoscum in the NY-23 congressional race.  (Below the fold ’cause it’s rather long.)

After bowing out of the 23rd Congressional race Saturday, Republican Scozzafava released the following statement today at 2 :06 p.m.:

I want to thank you for your support and friendship. Over the past 24 hours, I have had encouraging words sent to my family and me. Many of you have asked me whom you should support on Tuesday.

Since announcing the suspension of my campaign, I have thought long and hard about what is best for the people of this District, and how to answer your questions. This is not a decision that I have made lightly.

You know me, and throughout my career, I have been always been an independent voice for the people I represent. I have stood for our honest principles, and a truthful discussion of the issues, even when it cost me personally and politically. Since beginning my campaign, I have told you that this election is not about me; it’s about the people of this District.

It is in this spirit that I am writing to let you know I am supporting Bill Owens for Congress and urge you to do the same.

It’s not in the cards for me to be your representative, but I strongly believe Bill is the only candidate who can build upon John McHugh’s lasting legacy in the U.S. Congress. John and I worked together on the expansion of Fort Drum and I know how important that base is to the economy of this region. I am confident that Bill will be able to provide the leadership and continuity of support to Drum Country just as John did during his tenure in Congress.

In Bill Owens, I see a sense of duty and integrity that will guide him beyond political partisanship. He will be an independent voice devoted to doing what is right for New York. Bill understands this district and its people, and when he represents us in Congress he will put our interests first.

Please join me in voting for Bill Owens on Tuesday. To address the tough challenges ahead, we must rise above partisanship and politics and work together. There’s too much at stake in this election to do otherwise.


Now, former Scuzzyfavabeans boot-licker Newtie Gin-grinch, to his partial credit, has endorsed Doug Hoffman (hopefully, that won’t drag Hoffman down too  much).  But, given the previously-mentioned Grinch shift leftward, one can’t help but think that this is too little, way too damned late for the former Speaker.  Your judgment has had the bottom fall out of it, Newtie, and it’ll be the proverbial Cold Day In Hell™ before anyone trusts you as a go-to guy again.

(Well, except for Hannity, but then Hannity simply doesn’t know any better.)


Probably not many people realize it – and I myself stumbled across it purely by accident – but today is Chris Muir’s seventh anniversary of doing the Day by Day  comic strip, avaiable here (or at the link on the left sidebar, if you so choose).

For your edification – and to show you how much Chris’ drawing has improved with all the practice (grin) – here’s the very first one:

And to give you an idea of just how much better he’s gotten, here’s Sam today:

Damn.  Just, damn.  (sigh)

Happy Blogaversary, Chris!
