Scozzafava Dropped Out!!

Will the RNC learn a lesson here?  Probably not.  From the Politico:

Republican Dede Scozzafava has suspended her bid in next Tuesday’s NY 23 special election, a huge development that dramatically shakes up the race. She did not endorse either of her two opponents — Conservative party candidate Doug Hoffman or Democrat Bill Owens.
