Scozzafava Campaign Goes After Me. Subtly.


Well, I guess I am having some sort of impact. If I wanted validation, I guess I have it from the Scozzafava campaign. Humorously, the interview is with the Los Angeles Times.

See here:

“Her positions on a lot of issues are reflective* of the electorate here,” said Matt Burns, a Scozzafava spokesman. “If the idea is that every Republican that runs for office needs [to be] someone who fits in Georgia**, then it’s going to be very, very difficult for Republicans to gain a majority in the House of Representatives.”

Hmmm . . . I wonder why Matt Burns would be talking about Georgia.

It’s raining down here today in Macon, by the way, but it’s still bright outside. That’s either the flaming, stinking mass of Scozzafava’s campaign going down in flames, or the sun rising again on the GOP as Hoffman sails into the lead. Either way, I’m happy.

By the way, I guess being smacked in the mouth by the Weekly Standard taught the Scozzafava campaign a bit of civility in their attacks.

*I think Matt meant refractive, because where I’m sitting 81% of the district has turned away from Scozzafava.

**Or the campaign could be so dysfunctional and clueless right now that they think Newt is backing Hoffman.

  • After reading and enjoying RedState for some time now, it wasn’t until this article that I realized you’re not only from the South but from Georgia, no less, and, more than that, from Macon! What a hoot!

    Although I have lived in Northern Virginia (definitely NOT the South — too liberal and too close to DC) for some years now, my hometown is Macon, GA.

    My family first lived on Hemlock Street near what was then Macon Hospital, then Trinity Place out near Ocmulgee National Monument and finally, when I was about 10, moved out on Millerfield Road near the Bibb-Jones County line, from which I attended Mercer and Walter F. George School of Law, and then went off to the Army for almost 26 years.

    Keep up the good work and keep pokin’ the libs right in the eye.
