Doug Hoffman: I’m un-conceding NY-23

Via Think Progress. Ed’s already written about how improbable a Hoffman win is. Even so, the “count every ballot” schtick is smart politics considering (a) it’s an excuse for Beck and other big-name media figures to extend his time in the spotlight ahead of next year’s rematch with Owens and (b) it indirectly reminds voters of how narrow the margin was in the House for PelosiCare. It was 220-215 with Owens in the NY-23 seat; swap in Hoffman and you’re down to 219-216, with Joe Cao suddenly thinking very hard about just how decisive he wants his vote to be.
Anyway, short clip, and worth it for the Lake Placid line alone.
