I've always subscribed to what is Rush's position that to have a third party will just split the vote and guarantee a win for the side you hate, which I guess depends on which side you are on to know which one you hate (did that make sense?) On the other hand Glenn Beck backs the idea of a third party.
I still haven't made up my mind but I do know the Hoffman race is important for two reasons. One - it shows the incumbents that the American people are dead serious about not wanting anymore socialist wannabe's in elected positions. Two - and most importantly - it shows the American people that the scum bags can be defeated.

The Blog Prof takes a look at the 60 Minutes special on the governments ability to run anything, including health care. 60 Minutes (!!!) asks "can gov't manage a medical bureaucracy?" after investigating Medicare fraud
As many people, including moi, have said,
"If you're planning on partially funding socialized medicine with the savings from wiping out the billions of fraud taking place now - how about doing that first. Are we to believe that only by passing a bill guaranteed to bankrupt the country, we can stop the fraud and abuse? How stupid do you think we are?" Quote is mine. Wanted to see how I looked all squished up in the center of the page. Nice!
