I'm less blown away by Rep. Earl Pomeroy's TV ad
touting his work
with George W. Bush than some other people. It's merely the best way to run the "please don't eject me, I love Republicans" play that I've seen. But the Pomeroy ad reminds me of the sun-dappled days of November 2008, when Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) failed to get 50.1 percent of the vote and was forced into a runoff with Democrat Jim Martin, who eventually lost.
Over/under on how many Democrats in red states will deploy that phrase, "he'll work with Barack Obama," this fall?
