I jumped online. From the lips of the LOTUS:
The people of the 23rd Congressional District of New York are ready to shake things up, and Doug Hoffman is coming on strong as Election Day approaches! He needs our help now.
The votes of every member of Congress affect every American, so it's important for all of us to pay attention to this important Congressional campaign in upstate New York. I am very pleased to announce my support for Doug Hoffman in his fight to be the next Representative from New York's 23rd Congressional district. It's my honor to endorse Doug and to do what I can to help him win, including having my political action committee, SarahPAC, donate to his campaign the maximum contribution allowed by law.
Our nation is at a crossroads, and this is once again a "time for choosing." The federal government borrows, spends, and prints too much money, while our national debt hits a record high. Government is growing while the private sector is shrinking, and unemployment is on the rise. Doug Hoffman is committed to ending the reckless spending in Washington, D.C. and the massive increase in the size and scope of the federal government. He is also fully committed to supporting our men and women in uniform as they seek to honorably complete their missions overseas.
And best of all, Doug Hoffman has not been anointed by any political machine. Doug Hoffman stands for the principles that all Republicans should share: smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense, and a commitment to individual liberty.
Political parties must stand for something. When Republicans were in the wilderness in the late 1970s, Ronald Reagan knew that the doctrine of "blurring the lines" between parties was not an appropriate way to win elections. Unfortunately, the Republican Party today has decided to choose a candidate who more than blurs the lines, and there is no real difference between the Democrat and the Republican in this race. This is why Doug Hoffman is running on the Conservative Party's ticket.
Republicans and conservatives around the country are sending an important message to the Republican establishment in their outstanding grassroots support for Doug Hoffman: no more politics as usual.
You can help Doug by visiting his official website below and joining me in supporting his campaign:
"And best of all, Doug Hoffman has not been anointed by any political machine...." This is more than an endorsement, ladies and gentlemen. This is a shot over the bow, if not a bazooka strike straight into the heart of the Republican Party. This is less about Doug Hoffman and more about the problems with the party at large. The Party Boys better pay attention, and now.
Like I've said, I'm not a big fan of anybody from outside intervening in state and local elections, so I didn't really care if she jumped in one way or the other. Yes, I know it will impact the nation at large, and I was for her stumping for the Senate races, especially for a Senator in my state.... I don't know. I may have to abandon that position - I'll give it some more thought.
In the meantime, I'm thrilled with the way she did jump in. The timing is perfect, the message is right on target, and the 'Cuda is on the move.
Bill O'Reilly had Laura Ingraham on tonight and he talked to her about the in-fighting in the Republican Party and how it would hurt the party. Boo-whoopde-hoo. Who gives two cents about the Party? I used to; I don't anymore.
This civil war in the party has been going on underground for years. Let's just have it out, already. We have to straighten ourselves out before we even think about going after anyone else, so let's do it. Let's duke it out and decide what we believe.
As for Sarah Palin, if I were a Party Boy, I'd be real careful not to leave any blood in the water. She's hungry.
