I was going to do up a long and detailed piece on Bill Owens today, but then I saw a recent statement and realized I could sum him up in one pithy argument. In the absence of having any substantive arguments for why voters in NY’s 23rd should vote for his candidacy as opposed to leading candidate Doug Hoffman, Owens decided to make today’s race about Rush Limbaugh. Today, Bill Owens made a statement regarding Limbaugh’s Scozzafava’s remarks yesterday. Limbaugh is quoted as saying of Scozzafava:
“Guilty of widespread bestiality — she has screwed every RINO in the country”
Owen’s responded by saying, “Doug Hoffman and his supporters have sunk to a new low today. There is no excuse for this kind of shameful rhetoric and Doug Hoffman ought to denounce Limbaugh immediately.”
If I were Hoffman, I’d be asking Owens why he is not stumping to have Obama apologize and denounce half of his Czars and associates for the same reasons. For example, we never did get an apology from the President for Van Jones. Do I need go into his comments? How about Pelosi, Reed and other congress members? When is the left going to start apologizing for the left?
