    Watertown Daily Times | A changed race

    So a supposedly conservative, really a neocon, Republican backs the liberal Democrat rather than back the other neocon. This tells me that the Republicrats are once again working together to maintain their duopoly. The Republicans and Democrats are willing to go against each other for their own personal gain, but when it comes right down to it they don't mind the other side having a seat if it means a third party doesn't get it.

    Actually, she's a Moderate and Hoffman is a Neocon. So of course she's going to support the Democrat. It has nothing to do with a third party.

    With this backing, Owens will win now as I previously predicted.

    Republican moderates are neocons.

    Not quite. Though it seems we define the term neocon differently.

    A neocon is a big government Republican claiming to be a conservative. If a Republican is a moderate then they are for bigger government, thus a neocon.

    Then we have the same definition but I fail to see where she was a neocon. Hoffman is a neocon in Conservative clothing.

    Hoffman is still going to win and win easily.

    You said yourself she was a moderate. If a Republican is a moderate then they support bigger government than a true conservative would. Since a neocon believes in bigger government a moderate would be a neocon.

    Yeah--well this proves it. Scozzafava was nothing more than a liberal democrat with an R behind her name.
