Dede Is A Democrat
Dede has endorsed the Democrat the race for Representative of the New York 23rd District.
Dede Scozzafava, the Republican and Independence Parties' candidate for the 23rd Congressional District of New York state who suspended her campaign Saturday, announced moments ago she was throwing her support behind Democrat candidate Bill Owens rather than the Conservative Party's Doug Hoffman.I listened to Axelrod for a few minutes on TV this morning and he was droning on about how there was no place for Moderates in the Republican Party. Of course I wrote that off as spin. It turns out it was more than spin. It was a lie.
There is no place for Democrats in the Republican Party. It causes a confusion in categories.
And then there is Joe Lieberman.
Senator Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., said Sunday that anyone supporting a government-backed health insurance plan is not only "wrong," but is jeopardizing the passage of any reform of health care.Now Joe leans socialist it is true. But he knows one important thing. You can't fund all the goodies he favors without a vibrant capitalist economy.
So would I take him as a Republican? Yep. I'd say he was more Republican than a Republican who endorses a Democrat. So who is Joe endorsing in the 2010 Elections? It looks like the same Party he endorsed for President in 2008.
Dissecting Sen. Joseph Lieberman's motives has become a cottage industry among political commentators, especially since he staked out a high-profile stance against a government-run insurance plan put forth by Democratic leaders.I'll say this about that from a Republican point of view. With enemies like Joe who needs friends like Dede?
