You would think that Dede Scozzafava and her spokesman would go far out of their way to accomodate a conservative journalist like John McCormack. After all, their credibility with and support from the conservative base is already in terrible shape. But to call the cops on him? I have not been following this campaign closely, but a quick scan of the headlines leads me to believe that both Dede Scozzafava and her spokesman, Matt Burns, are completely unhinged.
And as a side note, I was going to mention that this run-in between Scozzafava and McCormack was hilariously ethnic — McCormack is Irish enough that there are a thousand faux-Irish pubs by that name, and Scozzafava is perhaps the most Italian name I’ve ever heard. But then I learn that “Dede” is short for Deirdre, which is one of the most Irish names possible.
So “Deirdre Scozzafava” is easily the most ethnically confused name I’ve ever heard in my life.
