Walter to the rescue…

Looks like the good folks over at Democratic Underground are going to get their wish and Walter Mondale is going to fill in for Wellstone.

Republicans began to gear up Monday to oppose former Vice President Walter Mondale, who appears likely to step in as a Senate candidate after Sen. Paul Wellstone was killed in an airplane crash on Friday. Democrats need to keep the Minnesota seat to help protect their one-seat Senate edge. Republican candidate Norm Coleman has suspended his campaign at least until after a memorial service for Wellstone is held Tuesday.

REPUBLICANS MONDAY questioned Mondale’s readiness, noting he has not held elective office since 1981 and has not run a campaign since losing by a landslide to Ronald Reagan in 1984

I believe that 1984 is also the last time Strom Thurmond had a bowel movement, but you don’t hear the Democrats mentioning that (thank the imaginary deity of your choice). So while Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms are sharing a double room and ventilator at Walter Reed, and they have to keep Dick Cheney away from microwaves, lest he crumple to the floor and start flopping like a landed trout, the Republicans are questioning Mondale’s “readiness”. Give me a friggin’ break.

It’s 2002 and Bush, Cheney, Rice, and Rummy are running the goverment like it was 1954, but without the family values…
