I love the line “We lose when we are Democrat lite”.  Classic.

Sadly, the choice seems to be to support the GOP leadership or the values that conservatives hold dear.

I am glad to see Armey and Palin backing the values instead of the RINO who wears the “Republican” badge.

It looks as though Sarah Palin has begun a hot new trend among Republican activists — endorsing a non-Republican.  Dick Armey, who runs one of the major Tea Party organizing efforts, endorsed Douglas Hoffman yesterday in the special election in New York’s 23rd Congressional district.  It comes as another blow to Republican Dede Scozzafava, who has imploded over the last week:

On Thursday, Dick Armey, former House Majority Leader after the 1994 Conservative Revolution went to New York’s 23rd Congressional District to endorse and campaign for Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman.

The special election, which will be held Nov. 3 to replace former Congressman John McHugh, has unusually important significance for conservatives.  Democrat Bill Owens, and Dede Scozzafava, a Republican who is more liberal than Owens, have been challenged by Mr. Hoffman, a conservative candidate that has captured the support of national leaders like Dick Armey, who’s organization FreedomWorks planned the 9-12 Tea Party rally in Washington, DC.

“We [Republicans] win when we are us. We lose when we are Democrat lite,” he told Redstate.com editor Erick Erickson.  “We attract people by being small government conservatives,” Big Government Republicans, I would tell the Republican Party leadership it cannot win if it insists on recruiting and supporting candidates out of step with the voters.”
