Bad analysis

From the Times Union, “A central lesson in the 23rd“:

“For all the money that national conservative groups poured into the race for the 23rd Congressional District, their candidate lost. That is the undeniable bottom line … all that advertising and support from … a host of other outside … pro-gun groups didn’t make voters think much differently. Those groups could not persuade a majority of voters to believe in a platform that they didn’t endorse … New Yorkers as a whole … They tend to be more interested in sensible gun control than ensuring that every citizen can pack heat …”

Except the gun issue wasn’t an issue in the race. ¬†The NRA rated both Doug Hoffman and Bill Owens as “AQ” based upon their candidate questionnaires and the Brady Bunch was nowhere to be seen. ¬†Gunnies had nothing to win or lose in that race no matter who came out ahead.

  1. The Times Union is viciously against gun rights. If it rained blue M&M’s they would say it showed the need for more gun control. Spinning the victory of an NRA “A” rated candidate into a call for more gun control is just plain nuts, which is a reminder of how bad life would be under these dishonest Bolshie wannabes if we let them disarm us.
