What Happened Palin, Beck, Limbaugh, Armey, Fox News and Teabaggers?

What Happened New York 23rd?  Winfrey Palin

With conservative heavyweights and a cable news network backing independent conservative Doug Hoffman how could you lose? Doug Hoffman the conservative candidate was defeated last night by democrat Bill Owens for New York’s 23rd Congressional seat. With names like Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Dick Armey, Fox News how could you lose but last night even with all that star power and an activist group the Tea Party weren’t able to persuade voters in New York’s 23rd.

Over the Summer the tea party marched to Washington D.C. and held rallies all over the country covered extensively by Fox News and declared the ultra conservative wing of the GOP would slowly take back the country. Well last night with Doug Hoffman representing the far right wing-nut of the GOP party the movement hit a stumbling block they lost. Perhaps voters aren’t so inclined to believe America is a Marxist country or the Constitution is under attack exclaimed by teabaggers. I’m sure Palin, Beck, Limbaugh are already moving on and I imagine moderate republicans like Florida’s Charlie Crist can breathe a sigh of relief for the moment.
