Jefferson's Leaning Left: Doug Hoffman flounders with local trivia.

Thought I would share some sentiments from a local blogger regarding Doug Hoffman's performance at a recent debate with Bill Owens and Dede Scozzafava. Doesn't look like he fared too well........

Stewart annihilates Fox News' purported opinion-news division: "It's a perpetual revulsion machine"


Isn't is a shame when some of the most honest news comes from a Comedy Central show? John Stewart, as he frequently does, hits the nail on the head about Faux News.

Make sure you watch until the end to see what Fox is trying to spew regarding supposed Obama "indoctrination" in the schools. It should be noted that it was one school, seven months ago, and parents were sent home the words and had no problem with it. It didn't, however, stop Fox "News" from jumping on it and making an issue out of it!

More Right Wing B-S....Obama’s way means ‘lights out’ for Vegas, Wynn says - Monday, Oct. 26, 2009 | 2 a.m. - Las Vegas Sun

It's funny. It seems that many of the people that are so outspoken against Obama are the ones that have a lot, have enough, have what they need, and just want to make sure that they continue to get more. That's what it is, isn't it? People like Steve Wynn aren't really concerned about where this country is headed....their more concerned about THEIR way of life and if Obama's plans take a little bit of their millions out of their fat bank accounts, their all out on Fox screaming "SOCIALISM!"

Well, I'll call it as I see it! It's self-centered BULLSHIT!

Watertown Daily Times | All Politics is Local

All Politics Is Local

I am a little late on this one, but I hope you all will check out Jude Seymour's post called (Shakes head at Republican Leadership). Jude really did his homework on this one showing the "controversy" surrounding Dede Scozzafava's nomination as nothing more than "fake controversy generated by bloggers who live outside this district and have their own agendas."

This should be required reading for Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, and any conservative Republican that keeps stating that Ms. Scozzafava's nomination was done behind closed doors.

Check out this great quote in regards to the selection of a Republican candidate in July 9th's Watertown Daily Time and try to figure out who stated it......

"I think the whole process is fantastic! Hopefully, by doing this, we'll get a candidate the people can get behind."

Ding, ding....times up! This jewel came from the lips of a Lake Placid accountant named Douglas L. Hoffman. Yes....THAT Doug Hoffman! It came from "Nine 'apply' for post in 23rd", July 9, WDT.

Now, let me state that I am voting for Bill Owens. This race, this seat in Congress, is too important for us North Country Dems. We have put candidate after candidate against John McHugh to no avail....this time, we actually have a shot. I am excited at the prospect of a Democrat in the 23rd Congressional District seat.

So, why have I posted so much on Dede Scozzafava? Because I think what the Republican party has done to her is sad and ridiculous. I think how the North Country Republicans turned their back on her and how this became a nation-wide "bash Dede" fest by Conservatives just shows how mean spirited the party can be. You can't sit there and talk about how you embrace Christian Conservative values, then at the same time call Dede the wide range of insults that I have seen on conservative blogs. Not very Christian-like, but as I can see, very Conservative-like.

Like I said.....Ms. Scozzafava, when this is all over, please consider moving over to the Democratic Party. Why stay with a party that threw you to the wolves so quickly and didn't stand up for you when you needed it? It's like being in an abusive relationship. Break free, Dede!

Hoffman bombs on local issues quiz - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

Hoffman bombs on local issues quiz - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

Wonder how long it takes the Hoffman campaign to state that the Watertown Daily Times is just another liberal, Obama-loving news source like CNN and the "mainstream media"?

Maybe if Hoffman wasn't paying so much attention caring if Sarah Palin, Fox News, or Michelle Malkin wanted his time, he would have done his homework on the local issues.

Fox News vs. Obama - Obama didn't start this war

I know it seems like I am on a rant against Conservatives lately....ok, I am, more than likely caused by the local Congressional Election, but I have also seen A LOT of Tea Party signs praising Fox News for their exceptional news coverage.

FOR REAL?? This is what you all count as "real" news? It's like watching Maury Povich or Jerry Springer....really? FOR REAL?? THIS is what got all of you Tea Partiers into a lather??



Here's an idea. Quit watching the news! ALL of it! Or if you must, please research the story. Knowledge is power, my friends, and all Fox is doing is using scare tactics to get people riled.
Check this out all!! Glenn Beck, without his usual tears, first states that he doesn't pay attention to local politics but then proceeds to say that Dede Scozzafava is supported by ACORN!! HaHaHa....silly Conservatives. Do you KNOW how crazy you sound!!?


Tick tock...tick tock...that's the sound of the time left on Republican control of the North Country. 12 days and counting......

I know this is late, but.......



If I was Dede Scozzafava, after yesterday's photo op fiasco, my campaign manager would be out of a job. To quote Perry White from his Watertown Daily Times column Outside Looking In:

"Then on Wednesday, candidate Scozzafava marched down to the Doug Hoffman headquarters to give a sort of Twitterized press conference, and when the film hit the nightly news, there was Dede in a tasteful, muted salmon suit absolutely surrounded by a sea of bright red Hoffman for Congress posters. I don’t know what she was saying; all I could do was stare, mouth open in amazement, at this visual. I’m certain that about half the people who saw it thought she was quitting the campaign and throwing her support to the Conservative Party candidate, because that was certainly the image that lingers."

I was most certainly surprised being that just the day before this clusterf--- Hoffman stated that Dede should step down. Is Dede's campaign manager a secret Conservative operative sent by the wing-nut Tea Party Brigade to actually undermine her campaign?

Hmmm....don't know! I still think my prediction of October 16th is going to come true.

I'll just sit back and enjoy the show, then cast my vote for Bill Owens on November 3rd.

NY-23: Hoffman Calls on Scozzafava to Leave the Race « The Washington Independent

NY-23: Hoffman Calls on Scozzafava to Leave the Race « The Washington Independent

I am just going to say this.....if I can't have the pleasure of seeing a Democrat take the seat of NY's 23rd Congressional District, I would be placated to see Dede wipe the floor with Doug Hoffman. Why? Because the statement his campaign put out stating that Dede Scozzafava should bow out of the race just shows the arrogance of the candidate. Dede Scozzafava has every right to be in this election, Mr. Hoffman...even more than you do. Oh...here's another quote from Doug Hoffman....“It’s time for conservatives to show the Republican establishment who’s in charge.” Well, Mr. Hoffman, if who's in charge of the Republican party is the Conservatives, then I actually feel sorry for the Republicans right now.

This might come as a shock to many of you who read this blog, but as much as I would like to see Bill Owens win the seat, you won't get me to take smack about Dede Scozzafava. I think the Conservatives are going to kick themselves in the ass when North Country Dems are celebrating and they are crying all because they had to be all high and mighty of where Dede stands on issues. Shit...if evil incarnate Michelle Malkin is going as far as to call Dede a Leftist RINO, then she can't be ALL bad, can she? All I can say is come on over to the blue side, Dede...we won't treat you as such and we probably have better cookies.

You know what bugs me about Mr. Hoffman's sentiment and the sentiment of many Conservative Republicans? It's that they think they are better than the rest of us? They think they have the moral high ground on everyone from Democrats, to moderate Republicans, to gays and lesbians, to minorities, to people of other faiths, to women who face the decision of abortion....ALL of us. And many of them, do it with nastiness and disdain under the guise of Christian love and compassion. It makes me think of a bumper stick I once saw:

The Weekly Standard - Scozzafava Calls the Cops

The Weekly Standard

Look at that....a conservative reporter tries to employ some in-your-face, guerilla journalism and has the cops called on him. Funny, I wonder where John McCormack's outrage for members of his own party was when Bush was bullshitting our country. Hmmmm.....

Tea-Party Activists Complicate Republican Comeback Strategy - WSJ.com

Oh, those crazy tea-partiers.....
Tea-Party Activists Complicate Republican Comeback Strategy - WSJ.com

Here's how I think the NY Congressional District 23 race will go and seeing as Owens is ahead in the polls and thus adding some validity to my point, here goes....

The Conservatives / Tea Partiers are going to cut off their noses to spite their faces because Dede Scozzafava is just too moderate (or liberal as they like to put it) for their Shi'ite conservative tastes. Then Owens will win and we Dems will have our first Democrat in this seat since the Civil War, no small feat since sometimes I feel like I am living in the Republican armpit of an otherwise Blue State. Owens win won't be a landslide, but enough to win. Then there will be some weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth from conservatives / tea partiers as they bemoan how this country is going to hell in a hand basket with Barack HUSSAIN Obama (trust me on this....the tea partiers favorite thing to do is to whip out that middle name, usually on a misspelled sign). After the hubbub dies down, they will just patiently (or maybe not) await the Rapture while listening to Rush or watching Glenn Beck shed an ocean of tears, because they KNOW it's coming, considering a Muslim is running this country (their words, not mine).

There....I have it recorded so I can say I called it.

Thank the Heavens for this product.....No Pudge Fat Free Fudge Brownie Mix

When I was eating low fat awaiting my gall bladder surgery, I was a little bummed because I am a lover of brownies. I wasn't able to find a whole lot that I could or dared eat, then one day at The Mustard Seed here in Watertown, I found one of the best fat free foods that I have ever tasted.

It's called No Pudge Fat Free Fudge Brownie Mix. These are pure heaven. All you add is a cup of fat free vanilla yogurt, mix, bake, and you have fat free brownies that taste no where near fat free. I have tried their Mint and Regular varieties and I bought a box of the cappuccino to try over the weekend. These brownies are the bomb, plain and simple. Even my kids eat them like there is no tomorrow.

Now that I trying to live a healthier lifestyle, these are definitely a lifesaver on those PMS, chocolate craving days when yogurt just won't do!!

You can find the No Pudge website at http://www.nopudge.com/index.html. There is a list of store that sell it and I see they have ice cream, too, but the link won't open. I might have to go on an expedition for No Pudge Ice Cream!!
