Democrats For Bush

Not to obsess here (I never do that), but the Bill McGurn speech on Bob Casey and the Democratic party we posted a little bit ago on NRO gets me annoyed again. There’s been some press coverage for Zell Miller when he’s stumping for Bush (but, frankly, not that much—and not that much locally, as Henry Payne has pointed out in the Battlegrounders blog–and, frankly, I can’t help but think he gets the coverage because the MSM thinks he scares people, especially women–he doesn’t by the way, in my humble opinion). I wish the Bush campaign, had run a commercial with this fellow, Brian Golden, a young, articulate, pro-life Democrat, who has served in our military, who has served in the legislature in John Kerry’s state, and who wholeheartedly supports Bush. Son of a cop, from a Democratic family, as he told NRO this week, he is not a GOP shill–he’s an honest American voice, and one that I think would resonate with people. I think that scares MSM types. So I wish the campaign had made more use of their Dems like Golden—Ron Silver (who rocks, mind you) only goes so far.
