Bush/Cheney Alumni for Patrick Murray!


    Is this a smart political move by Patrick Murray, bringing in the “Bush/Cheney alumni” crowd to bluer-than-blue Arlington and Alexandria?  Well, on the one hand, George W. Bush and “Deadeye Dick” Cheney did get a whopping 35% of the vote in the 8th Congressional District in 2004. On the other hand…oh forget it, Patrick Murray’s just completely out of touch with the voters of Arlington and Alexandria. Unbelievable.

      is more for Keith Fimian’s benefit than for Murray.  Having an active campaign in the 8th does keep a lot of volunteers – and some money – tied up there instead of sending everyone and everything into the 11th to bulk up Gerry Connolly.  Plus, the assholes plain don’t like Jim, so it’s more a stick in the eye than anything else.
