So you want to know why Hoffman lost to Owens in NY-23?

Former Readers Digest editor-in-chief and Corporation for Public Broadcasting board chairman Ken Tomlinson explains everything about why Conservative Party of New York congessional nominee Doug Hoffman didn't quite pull off a “Buckley” – winning a three-way race.

It all goes back to Jim Buckley, Spiro T. Agnew, Charles Goodell, and Christine Jorgensen. And yes, I know I just revealed my age. Go read Tomlinson anyway, in The Weekly Standard. Actually, American Conservative Union chairman David Keene explained everything and Tomlinson provides a typically evocative report from an absolutely delightful lunch.
