Charles Johnson Attacks Doug Hoffman as 'Glenn Beck Candidate'

It's long been established by now that Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs has completed his Andrew Sullivan transmogrification, but this tidbit today is too much to resist. Johnson's been attacking Michelle Malkin all week - taking issue with Malkin's (accurate) description of Dede Scozzfava as "radical" - but now he's going after candidate Hoffman directly. Here's the screencap to his post, "Doug Hoffman: The Glenn Beck Candidate."

For Johnson, Hoffman's endorsement of the 9/12 Project's "9 Principles, 12 Values" apparently makes him and extremist (yep, it's pretty extreme to say, "I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results").

In any case, although he's modest about it, John Hawkins has the best post on Charles Johnson's self-immolation. See, "
The Descent of Little Green Footballs."

Also worth a look is Rick Moran's contrarian take on conservative influence in NY-23. See, "

And, of course, the big news today is Dede Scozzafava's endorsement of Democrat Bill Owens in Tuesday's special election, "
NY-23: Scozzafava Endorses Owens" (via Memeorandum).

using a beck association as an attack proves how leftwingnuttish cj has become.


i'd have posted on it but he's not worth the time.

Chaz is so righteous. Ask what exactly he has personally done for his country other than blog off of others' work.
Plus Hoffman is also the Tea Parties
candidate, a group Johnson despises.
Again what exactly has he done other than blog off of others work?

I just commented on Frank Rich's column calling the Republican's "Stalinists" for supporting Hoffman. When Republicans no longer support conservative principles, why should we support them? I don't care about the party ID, I care about the belief system.

Anon: Sign in using your name. I get too many anonymous commenters, the most of whom I end up deleting for their attacks.

Reliapundit is right.
The darwinist rage boy is becoming a waste of time. I made a blog only to criticize his evolutionary views, but I get the feeling that it was a waste of time.

Time will tell.

LGF is really Little Green Turtle Turds but that's just me. I divorced myself back in 2004 when I got back from the war. I realized he was an idiot then.

What happened to Charles Johnson? I took him off my blogroll a long time ago when he started showing a lot of hostility towards creationists and religious folk.

Now he's attacking conservatives.

SR said...

Amy, Snooper here. LGF is a wannabe type and has been trying for years to do EXACTLY what the defeatocrats have been doing and that is take over. **** him and theirs.

The Stra-sphere blog has decided to throw its support for Charles Johnson and the lizardoids.
Another blog less out of my reading list.

Equal opportunity, not equal results. Moron.
