Say Anything blog has the understatement of the year about Dede Scozzafava: “Her calls for unity seem a bit weak after she essentially stabbed Republicans in the back by backing the Democrat candidate.” A bit weak, indeed:
Scozzafava continues playing the victim, claiming her conservative opponents engaged in “vicious” attacks. She displays a spectacular lack of self-awareness: “We need leadership that’s going to make sure that the party is strong going forward and that independent voices are heard from all ranks of the party.” Right — Dede was anointed as the Republican nominee in NY23 by a cabal of GOP insiders, and now she whines about the need to listen to “independent voices.”
Scozzafava dares to talk about “core principles” (!) and adds this: “Hopefully a lesson can be learned, and we can move forward and make the party stronger.” Right — she endorses the Democrat, then claims to want a stronger GOP.
She’s been stripped of her post in the GOP leadership in Albany, so the “moving forward” is already under way.
