Chris “both ways” Shays is now doing the pro-surge rubber chicken circuit with…wait for it…Brian Baird. Because, you know, it has bipartisan support. Meanwhile, his opponent Jim Himes (above) tries to untangle Shays’ convoluted rhetoric on Iraq, depending on whether Shays is voting or yacking.

Yesterday’s $5 fundraiser for Jim Himes has netted 80 new donors to our Blue America page, and by way of comparison Shays only had 107 donors during the last quarter. So it would be great if we could find 29 more donors, which would mean Jim had more contributors in just over 24 hours from Blue America alone than Shays had during the entire second quarter. If you’ve got $5 to spare, think of it as a way to combat the useful idiocy of Brian Baird.

Because John Amato and Howie Klein are so very competitive. (It’s all just a little unseemly, if you ask me.)
