Mike Mahaffey is a regular on “The Insiders,” WHO TV’s Sunday morning political roundtable with John Bachman. Mahaffey mentioned the civil war within the Republican Party a couple of times, including when talking about the special election in New York’s 23rd congressional district. Mahaffey stated that the outcome will either show signs of a Republican resurgence or the depths of the civil war within the party.
On Saturday the Republican candidate, Dede Scozzafava, dropped out. Yesterday she endorsed the Democrat candidate. While well known Republicans endorsed conservative candidate Doug Hoffman, the RNC supported Scozzafava. It looks like they knew what they were doing now that she has endorsed the Democrat. In Mahaffey’s defense, he recorded the show on Thursday, but his civil war comments seem silly after she supported the Democratic candidate.
Mike Mahaffey – You must be an idiot.
It’s hard to believe that people like George Pataki and Rudy Giuliani endorsed the conservative candidate Doug Hoffman in New York’s 23rd while Newt backed Scozzafava. What a mistake. Look, we have to get past the Republican Party label and support the candidates who stand for the principles of our Party.
Newt – You must be an idiot.
Kathie was part of the reporter’s roundtable on Iowa Press this weekend. Kathie was commenting on Branstad and Roxanne Conlin’s potential campaigns. Kathie said that she didn’t think that Roxanne was really a throwback candidate because she’s never held office and is a woman. Wow, talk about gender bias. I know that electing the first woman to congress or governor would be a big deal in Iowa, but that doesn’t mean Conlin isn’t a throwback candidate.
Kathie Obradovich – You must be an idiot.
A few Hawkeye Fans
I’m sure there are a few Hawkeye fans who turned off the TV when Ricky Stanzi threw 4 picks in the 3rd quarter on Saturday, but if this Hawkeye team has taught us one thing this year it’s that they never quit, and they are never out of it.
Fair weather Hawkeye Fans – How can you turn the channel? Don’t be an idiot!
