NY-23 analysis

Over the weekend, leftist GOP nominee Dede Scozzafava withdrew from the NY-23 race. She then promptly endorsed the leftist Dhimmicrat.

Predictably, the AP and other so-called “news” organizations started crying loudly that this proved there was no room in the GOP for “moderates.” (I won’t dignify the opinion piece they pass as news with a link.) Get back to me when the Dhimmicrats have even one conservative – excuse me, “moderate” – in their Congressional caucus.

At any rate, this looks like a (smallish) win for Palin in positioning for 2012. She was the first to endorse Hoffman. Pawlenty eventually followed, but only after a “I don’t really know anything about the race” gaffe; makes him look like an opportunist. Gingrich lost big with his appeal to the wisdom of local party bluebloods. Romney neither hurt nor helped himself with his non-position.

There’s an avalanche coming. It’s up to the GOP to decide if it wants to be part of the landslide – or if it wants to be buried.

UPDATE: Politics Daily reaches a similar conclusion.
