But really, if this is how Obama does in deep blue NJ and supposedly purple VA (an 18-point blowout) think for a minute what is possible nationwide.
The Hoffman loss in NY-23 was disappointing, but hey ... We can now say it: Hofmann wasn't the most charismatic fellow. Over at Ace of Spades, one commenter called him a "doorknob." Plus, the liberal Republican Scozzafava and the clueless GOP leadership in NY did Hoffman no favors. Still, the third party route for conservatives has been and remains perilous indeed, even under the best of circumstances. Time permitting, I hope to discuss this later.
But make no mistake: Yesterday was a very,very good day. A Republican won handily in NJ ... in the era of Hope & Change (as in, Brother, can you spare some). Pinch yourself. Yes, it's true.
Things can change for the better. But it takes conservatives to be engaged and involved.
So, let's go.
