The More Things Change...

My friend Bubblehead at The Stupid Shall Be Punished is nay-saying the Vice President's visit to Boise on behalf of congressional candidate Bill Sali.

The usual line is being used: This is a big race. (Kos says so.) Sali is a wacko. Larry Grant is a moderate.

And, of course, by moderate, we mean there is room in his tent for everyone who agrees with him. Christians, if you believe his campaign staff, are fools and need not apply.

girlfriday -- From what I can tell, Bill Sali has always been a man of principle. That's why it's disconcerting to me to see his staff not being completely forthcoming with the real numbers from the visit. I've blogged before about why I think it would be good for the War on Terror if the Dems took the House this year (which I think they'll do no matter what happens here), and why it would be in Idaho's best interests to have a moderate in the House on the same side of the aisle as the House leadership. Larry Grant has to work with the Dem activists that already were around, but you can see from the liveblogs that he did on his blog that he doesn't just parrot the liberal line. The reason I'm supporting him is that I think he'll be effective with the new Congressional leadership, and Mr. Sali wouldn't be.

I don't totally disagree with your post you link to. Every now and then the party in power needs an election that spanks them. It forces them to re-evaluate their priorities; revisit their platform. But what is your evidence that a freshman congressman is going to take a stronger position on the war on terror than Bush does? Especially when his bloggers spend a lot of time maligning the effort (but offering very few solutions, I'd add.)

Grant and his bloggers are anything but cautious when it comes to attacking those in a position to win or lose the election for them.

Also, dodging issues that he finds inflammatory does not a moderate make him.
