Dede Scozzafava is Writing a Book

The defeated candidate in NY-23, who helped swing a safe Republican seat over to Rep. Bill Owens (D-N.Y.), is adding to the underserved genre of “books by interesting candidates who lost” — see “The Unmaking of a Mayor” by William F. Buckley and “Primary Mistake” by Steve Laffey.

Scozzafava told WRVO public radio she’s begun assembling notes.

“I have been kind of putting pieces together, yes, just, I think, more so for me, just to kind of go back and recall different moments, and I had jotted down certain occasions and I’ve got a whole calendar of events, and I’m kind of thinking about it again,” said Scozzafava.

The news is being sent around by still-angry supporters of Doug Hoffman, the Conservative candidate taking another crack at the race this year.

1. Dede didn't lose, she quit.
2. Laffey is a conservative Republican who took on an incumbent senator and the entire Washington Republican establishment.
3. The Washington Republican establishment backed the Chafee-like Scozzafa and got no traction. (Laffey's warnings in Primary Mistake.)
4. If you read Laffey's book, you'll see he warns the RNC is heading toward irrelevance. He even predicted McCains 2008 defeat (in 2007!).

Laffey's Primay mistake is a thoughtful analysis of what has happened to the Republican party. I'm not anticipating anything insightful from Ms. Scozzafava.
