One of the big bombs dropped tonight in NY-23. George Pataki has come out and endorsed Doug Hoffman and, let me tell you, he did not spare the thinly-veiled elbow jabs at Dede Scozzafava.
As a businessman, and as a life-long resident of the North Country Doug Hoffman understands the need to lower taxes on working families, the need to stand tall against terror and he won’t back phony stimulus programs that fail to create the jobs we need and leaves a mountain of debt to our children.Boom! Bombshell.
When elected to Congress Doug will work to reduce our taxes, he will stand tall against those who despise our freedoms and he will be a vigilant stalwart against those who would substitute government programs for individual initiative.
And Doug Hoffman can win.
I think that calls for a stuffed turtle dancing to the Gap Band, it does!
What? If George Pataki endorsing an honest-to-goodness conservative doesn't merit a dancing turtle and the Gap Band, then I don't know what does.
Here's the NTC News post on the endorsement, along with another little tidbit from the debate in Syracuse. There weren't any fireworks, though Dede did get a couple good jabs in on both Hoffman and Owens.
