Here is a repost of Jefferson's Leaning Left this morning,

Doug Hoffman? Are you kidding me? Did you watch him flounder through a political debate with two real live candidates, Dede Scozzafava and Bill Owens? When Hoffman was drilled on current events it was like he had been spending all of his life changing the oil on his antique cars and had been ignoring the local and national news. Last night, Doug was out of it. He acted like a guy on his first date and his mother had picked out his suit.

Who the hell vetted this guy before he became the right wing conservative wacko darling of the right wing conservative wacko politicians and pundits? It appears that the crazies endorsing Doug knew as little about Doug as Doug knows about things like the war in Afganistan, the public option, tax breaks for the rich, and winter navigation and widening the St. Lawrence Seaway.

Last night, like many ultra conservatives who like to pretend they know what is best for our country, Doug Hoffman was flustered, ill-at-ease and appeared upset that he wasn't given the answers to the questions before hand. The guy had no clue.

Can he think on his feet? Hell, he couldn't even think while sitting in a chair.

Who in their right mind could possibly vote for Doug Hoffman after watching him struggle during last night's debate?

Oh, that's right, a Glenn Beck fan.
