In case you weren’t absolutely convinced that NY-23 congressional Republican candidate Dede Scozzafava has becomed totally detached from reality, the location she chose for today’s photo-op will erase your remaining doubts.
Dave Weigel passes along a photo and this video that show where Scozzafava decided to hold the photo-op: directly in front of Doug Hoffman’s (the Conservative Party candidate) office. As Weigel says, “Little-known fact: There are lots of campaign workers, and signs, in such offices, ready to be deployed.”
Words fail. What is she thinking?
Commenter JohnD points out that Scozzafava is damned by her own words:
This was almost as funny as a Monty Python sketch. On top of being surrounded by sign-bearing supporters of her opponent, she says, “the people should have to opportunity to have their questions answered.”
Then why did you call the cops, Dede?
