NY-23 Is This Your Man Hoffman Un-Un-Un- Concedes
Let’s see on November 16 Hoffman un-conceded, on the 17th he Un-Un conceded on the 18th he Un-Un-Un conceded. Got that straight?
Now is this the man you want in office? Your man of decision? A man who stands behind his word?
The 16th :
Hoffman ‘Un-Concedes’ The NY-23 Election After Prodding From His ‘Mentor’ Glenn Beck
BECK: Alright, so let me ask you two questions. Are you currently bowing to me at the waist? (LAUGHTER) Have you bowed, or will you bow, to anyone, at the waist? No? Okay, good. Second question for you, are you officially un-conceding at this moment?
HOFFMAN: Yes, if I knew this information at the election night, I would not have conceded.
BECK: So are you un-conceding?
HOFFMAN: If that’s possible, yes.
BECK: If the President can bow to an emperor and nobody says anything, yeah, I think you can unconcede.
However, today Hoffman’s spokesman told the Syracuse Post-Standard that he is un-unconceding:
Hoffman is not “un-conceding” the race, contrary to what he said Monday when pressed by Glenn Beck on his national talk radio show.
“What really matters is the count that is taking place today,” Rob Ryan, Hoffman’s spokesman told The Post-Standard. “When we see the direction that is taking, we will make the decision.”
As evidence surfaces, we find out that reported results from election night were far from accurate. ACORN and the unions did their best to try and sway the results to Obamacare supporter Bill Owens. […]
Rest assured, they will not succeed, and I am therefore revoking my statement of concession.
The people of NY-23 deserve to have their ballots counted properly, but we can’t let ACORN or the unions keep that from happening. They have more lawyers and more experience tampering with democracy,” he wrote.
“We need to make sure that fair elections are a reality in NY-23, just like our Founding Fathers envisioned. So long as we remain the “land of the free,” we MUST ensure every vote is counted. Help us today so we may be the first of many conservative victories during the Obama Regime.”
Phew! Let’s see we have most of all the characters involved: Sister Palin, Newt, Steele, Obama, Obamacare, County GOP, Unions, and of course: ACORN
I’m figuring that with a man of decision like this, he would make a stellar running mate for Palin in 2012! Ya think?
Play “Click Along” at “Think Progress” And all their many links.
Update: Has Hofmann finally made THE decision?
Doug, Is this your final decision? Would you like to use one of your lifelines? Phone a friend? Buy a vowel?
Nellie,javaz, et al, so as to not detract from any one’s post, I am going to tun my post to an open thread on today’s healthcare vote.
GOP on the stupk thing right now
Nellie just started a thread about the vote on the main page!
NEEEEEvveerr Mind. (sorry, Gilda) 😛
LOL — I thought we all may as well be yelling at the senate on the same thread!
I sent an email suggesting it. Good job!
Kalima, just a thought I had late last night. I would suggest you not tell your Doctors about the T’s not getting along with the B’s and they are attacking your joints. Afraid if you tell her/him that you may be “in a DIFFERENT ward” than for your RA. 😆
😆 I don’t understand why your lol is not showing up, it looks correct to me.
I won’t tell my doctor anything, by the time I get there and have waited for hours to get on to the bed, I’m too exhausted to do anything but grunt. I’m safe. 🙂
Not sure if this is off topic or not, but this is simply hilarious.
“Sen. Chris Buttars (R), who, despite his adamant support for an earlier proposition that banned same-sex marriage, does believe that sexual orientation deserves protection from employer and landlord abuse. However, while explaining his opposition to allowing same-sex couples to adopt children, he told the press that while he doesn
Javaz that’s not all Buttars ( 😉 ) had to say. Gawd!
What a racist – just caught this part –
In the past, Buttars has said that gay men and women are
He certainly has a way with words. A man with that name and so anti-gay, one would think he would choose his words with more thought. Aspiring stand-up comic? 😆
Republicans – gotta love ’em!
The amusing thing about all of this is that, unlike Coleman/Franken and Bush/Gore, a winner has already been declared and seated.
You can’t undo that anymore than Bush could’ve been unseated after stealing both of his elections (Kerry shouldn’t have conceded Ohio so quickly without a recount of all those skewed Diebold votes.).
What is the history on un-seating a sitting Rep. after being sworn in to office? Any? He is like Lucy and the football.
Very funny and I thank you for the laugh, bitohistory!
I just started following the links on the story and it was bizarre and had me chuckling. Sort of a novel with out a plot. 🙂
What was the margin that Hoffman lost by?
I can’t find it.
All I can find when I google it is right-wing sites yelling about fraud and acorn!
Got me there, javaz. I’ll see if i can find out.
Does not nellie live/lived up there?
I couldn’t find it on the NY State Election Commission website. Amazing! Or else I’m just dense occasionally.
Monk, does any one want to post this chit? (the vid is what I’m speaking about!
N.Y. Post reported on November, 13 that his lead was about 5,300.
Okay, good job at finding that!
“The Onion” reported today that there was “a lie” found on the internet 😀
