Lorie Byrd notes in her Townhall column today that Republican candidates aren't exactly running from President Bush in their runs for office this year.
That fact, however, has not changed the Democratic talking points on the subject or the MSM's echoing of them:
“Blogospheric political pressure spiked Tuesday over online allegations
that U.S. Rep. Mark Kennedy, the Republican-endorsed candidate for the
U.S. Senate in Minnesota, had "scrubbed" his congressional website of
references to President Bush. For example, a smiling joint portrait of
Kennedy and the president that formerly graced the congressman's web
biography page has been replaced by a photo of Kennedy and some
And legislation that once was "signed into law by President
Bush" now merely "became law" on Kennedy's website,
markkennedy.house.gov, according to the liberal political weblog MN
“scrubbing” of the website was wrong and that 72 mentions of “Bush”
appear on Kennedy’s website.
I also heard that Lorie just got a shout-out on Rush for her column. Way to go, Lorie!
