Markos Moulitsas Weasels Out of Scozzafava Endorsement

Remember my earlier report on Kos the radical and Newt the RINO, "Newt Gingrich Joins Daily Kos in Dede Scozzafava Endorsement!"

Well it turns out that Kos has had a major change of thinking. At Dump Dede, "
Kos Un-Endorses Scozzafava."

And quoting from Kos' un-endorsement (the link's at Newsbusters):

I have no love for the Democrat, Owens, and I clearly have no love for Scozzafava in that post, so only an idiot would construe that as an "endorsement". An endorsement implies love for the candidate being endorsed. I wish nothing but ill will for all candidates in this race. But the GOP is full of idiots, and they've run strong with it, making my "endorsement" part of their anti-Scozzafava narrative. And now we're in a situation in which the conservative candidate Doug Hoffman has a real chance of performing better than the Republican.
Yeah. Right.

What a bloody freaking liar.

I've got the wretch quoted at
my earlier post:

... Dede Scozzafava, the Republican, is actually the most liberal candidate in the race ....

Sure, she is a Republican, and opposes the public option. But she's been willing to raise taxes when budgets require it, and is to the left of most Democrats on social issues (including supporting gay marriage) ....

So it's official, I'm rooting for the Republican to win. As a congresswoman, she could either move even more to the left to properly represent her progressive-trending district and be a pain in the side of the GOP caucus (they have nothing like our Blue Dogs), or Democrats can field a real Democrat to challenge her in 2010.
