Proving The Point

Let's just say for a moment that the fringe right is successful in electing the Palinista in NY23. Current thinking is that Doug Hoffman is singularly unprepared to govern in any way.

And there are some signs that Hoffman may be something of a Potemkin
candidate. He didn't show up at a radio debate last night. He was on the finance
committee of a hospital that
successfully lobbied for a federal earmark before becoming an anti-earmark champion. And he got eaten alive by a local paper editorial board last week after he wasn't prepared to answer questions about any of the issues facing the district.

If the best that the Conservative has to offer is bomb-throwers in the mold of Bachmann how long will it take for the public to get over them?
