Dems Totally Freaked at Hoffman Surge in NY-23!

Markos Moultitsas, who earlier endorsed Dede Scozzafava in New York's 23rd congressional district, sums up Democratic fears with five days to go in the race, "NY-23: Hoffman Surges at Scozzafava's Expense":

If Scozzafava's fade continues, Hoffman will win this thing. Democratic chances hinge on halting the Hoffman surge, which is why the DCCC has trained its guns on the conservative party candidate.
No doubt Kos' reference is to this ad, "Doug Hoffman: Looking Out for Himself":

And actually, Kos is more right than even he realizes (or admits), since his internal polls are badly skewed toward the Democrats. (More at Memeorandum.)
