Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate in the NY-23rd district special election, has some pretty interesting heroes. More below.
...The 9/12 pledge isn’t the only pandering Hoffman has done to secure Beck’s enthusiastic support. Today on his radio program, Beck continued to nudge Hoffman to be more conservative. After being prodded by Beck to say climate change is not caused by human activity, Hoffman announced, "Well, I think there’s a lot of debate on there. I don’t believe that it’s totally manmade." Beck cohost Pat Gray praised Hoffman’s lurch to the right, noting "he’s getting stronger every second." Beck chimed in, agreeing, "He’s getting stronger, there it is, every second." Hoffman then groveled:
PAT: Every second. What about
HOFFMAN: I have good mentors here.
GLENN: Wait, wait. Wait, wait. Are they mentors that will show –
HOFFMAN: I’m talking about you, Glenn.
GLENN: Oh, okay. I was going to say all right, as long as they are standing out from the shadows. [...]
HOFFMAN: No. Yeah, well, I’m going to keep in touch with people like you so I don’t get infected with that disease.
Yup. Hoffman pandering directly to Beck in a radio interview on Beck's right wing hate radio show.
Now, I've seen diaries here taking about how democrats will all probably lose in 2009, how they don't care that democrats will lose, and how they all deserve it. Okay, but New York doesn't deserve to have Hoffman in office. Virginia doesn't deserve to have McDonnell. New Jersey doesn't deserve to have a boot-licking Bushie as govenor. So get out and vote!!!
