Frontal lobe ping pong: Special wingnut edition

Erick Erickson at Red State whacks himself upside the head. Hard.
In NY-23, Conservatives Win

The race has now been called for Democrat Bill Owens.
This is a huge win for conservatives.
“Whaaaa. . . ?” you say.

There are two big victories at work in New York’s 23rd Congressional District.

First, the GOP now must recognize it will either [a] lose without conservatives or [b] will win with conservatives. In 2008, many conservatives sat home instead of voting for John McCain. Now, in NY-23, conservatives rallied and destroyed the Republican candidate the establishment chose.
Not quite sure how long Erickson worked on this paradigm since he clearly forgot about a third possible outcome -- the GOP loses with a conservative -- which is just what happened when Democrat Bill Owens bested Conservative Doug Hoffman and won the seat from New York’s 23rd Congressional District. Owens will be the first Democrat NY-23 sends to Washington since the first term of President Ulysses Grant.

So buck up conservative buckaroos: You might have spitefully broken a 140-year-old electoral streak, but boy did you ream Newt Gingrich and whoever else was on your shit list for the past month.

I can completely relate with Erick, 'cause it's just like that one time I lost my foot in that terrible accident but I didn't get eczema any more, did I, victory.
