Yesterday I covered the New York 23rd District's Congressional race in my post: The Revolution Starts Here. The race pits "Republican" Dierdre Scozzafava against Democrat Bill Owens and Conservative Party of New York candidate Douglas L. Hoffman. As you know from my previous report Scozzafava is to the left of many Democrat Congress persons. i.e she is a Democrat. Or if you prefer A Republican In Name Only.
In a surprise move Sarah Palin on Facebook has endorsed Hoffman.
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.Well that is a shot across the bow of the Republican establishment.
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.
And Palin finishes off her Facebook message with this zinger:
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 know, whether Hoffman wins or loses I believe Palin has a future in politics. Currently Hoffman at 23% is trailing Scozzafava at 29%, with Democrat Owens leading with 33%. If Hoffman wins or at least does better than the Republican anointed Scozzafava, Palin's official political future will start November 4th.
My advice to the Republican Party? Wake up. The days of business as usual are over.
Oh yeah. Palin asks that people donate what they can to Doug Hoffman for Congress.
Update: And Don't forget to buy Palin's book Going Rogue: An American Life which is currently selling for $9.00 in hardcover.
More: RS "The Other" McCain and I don't always see eye to eye on many political questions. But he has been way out front in his support for Hoffman. Read his take on events at Palin Endorses Hoffman.
