This is a kind of shocking article from NPR...The head of the TEA Party group backing Doug Hoffman, openly admitting their man was ill prepared to compete in last nights debate......The Matt Doheny camp is crowing about the statements and is busy distributing the link to this story...Normally I wouldn't bite on such a craven publicity gambit, but when his own people say he is not fit for Prime Time Bill Owens.....Well that is something to raise my eyebrows just a tad.
Last year and this year, the Hoffman campaign has minimized exposure of their candidate to the public....They have been selling a concept, not a person.....Problem is we elect a person.
If I were ambitious I'd drive to Saranac Lake next week to see the next debate...That's a long drive, especially since I can't vote in the primary.
