Doug Hoffman, he failed Conservative Party candidate in the NY-23 special election is clearly relishing the surprise twist in his election – errors in the count that have put him only around 3,000 votes behind his opponent, Rep. Bill Owens (D-N.Y.), with around 6,000 absentee ballots outstanding. He appeared on Fox News last week to talk up his chances of pulling off a miracle upset (something that would require him winning a 5-1 split in absentee ballots) and tweets that he’ll be discussing this again today:

“…his chances of pulling off a miracle upset (something that would require him winning a 5-1 split in absentee ballots)…”

well, as a resident of NY 23, this IS 'news'. Doug Hoffman is apparently a supporter of legalizing marijuana because he's certainly exhibiting the symptoms!

Keep any eye out for Dougie hangin' @ a Taco Bell near you!

Why do I get the feeling that Hoffman is about to pull a Coleman?

This is a waste of energy for all involved–it is such a long shot. Those who need to milk it, will; the rest of can move on. Poor old American Thinker Clarice Feldman is quoting the Governeur times which has less than zero credibiltiy.

while I guess you intelectuals don't know what absentee ballots are or where they come from. So let me help you. The Military…….95% conservative republican…….so could 80% or more be for the conservative candidate? umm…yes. this election could easily be overturned since ny23 is a small district and 10,000 votes could change it all.

The linked article by Mr. Weigel reports that military personnel only requested 2,299 absentee ballots. It also mentions that only 6,000 of the 10,000 requested absentee ballots were returned. Considering that some of the absentee ballots might have been marked before the Scozzafava withdrew (on Saturday before the Tuesday election), it seems highly unlikely that the absentee military ballots will overturn the election in favor of Hoffman.

I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the comments that this is working for you as well.

Have a nice day

I have once seen a copy from the magazine. The article is about interviewing the designers of the Asics Onitsuka Tiger shoes. They say that they design shoes with thinking.
When we began to design the product, we should asics onitsuka tiger think that how to find resources and how to effectively manage data in order asics shoes to use the materials effectively. Reflect on the main colors of the new styles in this season and what kinds of the styles and techniques are popular. These sides are all important. Only you pay attention to these firstly, your produces may keep pace with the times. Of course, asics running shoes it is not enough. The designer should know about the Asics Revolve Le kinds of the styles of shoes and the main market. So search the related information is very important. Besides, asics tiger shoes the color-way of the Asics shoes is also essential. Only the fresh and unique color can attract consumers’ eyes. So we designing women’s Asics shoes lay stress on the color. Then you should search the information to touch your inspiration then improve the effect and aesthetic judgment. Then you can understand about the style, craft and color-way.
