Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “We won, even though we lost” Edition

p>Good morning, everyone!

Well, Ms. A said that I was going to have some fun with this, so who am I to disappoint her?

Let’s suit up and open the containment chamber for this Pyrrhic Victory edition of “Obsession”.

Doug Hoffman has a Free Republic account!

Well, no – not really. A helpful Freeper has posted his concession email:

America has changed, and you have helped. Although we did not
succeed in winning this election, we have succeeded in making sure
political parties and special interests no longer take the people for
granted. I believe we have sent a powerful message and laid the
groundwork for future conservative campaigns.


I congratulate
Bill Owens on a hard won victory. In our tradition of free elections,
our country continues. And although Bill Owens has won, I believe
America is turning the page to a new dawn.

Start spreading the news…Doug Hoffman can win
Conservatives, this is the place where we begin

You RINOs begone…we’ve had quite enough
We want some real conservatives with the right stuff

Doug Hoffman knows we have been on a big spending spree
It must stop now or we’re through, you’re gonna see

So give Doug support as Sarah has done
The move to take the country back has just begun

Yes, we can win it there…we can win anywhere
Doug Hoffman for upstate New York

The ideas of
freedom, sound fiscal management and citizen government have sprung
back into our consciousness. Our founding fathers would be proud of New
York 23. It was here that our principles, those that have been the
foundation of our nation, came back to life with a vengeance. And it
was here that the people rose up against the political bosses who tried
to impose their will. It was here that people reached out to control
their own destinies again.

Despite the election results, I am
optimistic for our future, because now I know that I am not alone in
wanting to repair our great nation. Throughout this campaign I have
been inspired by the outpouring of support and the intensity of that


I’ve met many different people in this campaign, from
many walks of life and many professions; each with a different personal
story to share. Yet we are all united in the belief that by
participating in democracy, we could inspire change.

I urge
that no one feel defeated, for this was only one of many elections. We
came close, we put our agenda in front of the nation and the nation
took notice. The worse thing we could do now, is not continue forward.
Next year there are other elections and other candidates who have drawn
inspiration from our efforts.


I would like to thank all of you
who placed your faith in me, who worked tirelessly and shared your
enthusiasm with those around you. You are all patriots, you have all
stood up for your country and I am honored to stand among you.

Thank you,

Doug Hoffman

Bummer. Thousands of votes remain uncounted, and I’m not even talking disenfranchised soldiers.

Job well done, Hoffman. Thanks for your effort and
your faith in Conservatism. May the GOP grow into a real political
party due to your efforts and those like you. As for RINOs…
