Hoffman: I think you'll see more average people like me running for office

The money part comes at 1:28. A fine populist sentiment. And, just maybe, a Gingrichian nightmare waiting to happen.

In fairness, he did also say this in an unaired part of the video:

Hoffman called Dede Scozzafava, the Republican nominee who dropped out of the race over the weekend, an “ultra-liberal” – but denied the GOP is at war with itself, or that the race offer a glimpse what’s to come in next fall’s midterm elections.

There is room for moderates in the GOP, said Hoffman. “I think this was a unique situation where the candidate happened to be more Democrat than Republican,” he told CNN’s Mary Snow and Shirley Zilberstein. “And basically, I was fighting to stand up for the values and ideals of the Republican Party.”

If it’s a “unique situation,” why forecast primary or third-party challenges from average joes elsewhere? Hmmm. Below the Hoffman clip you’ll find today’s monologue from Beck. Compare and contrast his point with 8:20 left about choosing between the progressive and the Marxist progressive with Limbaugh’s point about voting for McCain here.
