img_0678.JPGEd Anderson’s Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail continues.  He was last seen at a McCain rally with a "Bomb Iran/Vote McCain" sign (and a Yearly Kos bag slung over his shoulder).

He sent me this txt message from New Hampshire at 1:30 in the morning:

Well Jane, just ran into Terry McAuliffe. I put him in the death grip, and asked him kindly not to let the past cloud the future.

He said "I’m with you, man."

I said "No, you’re not. The past as the Clintons, the future is Obama. What about all the young people Barack is bringing into the Party?"

"Uh, uh, uhmm…"

"Terry," I said, "I care about the future of the Party, do you?"

Priceless silence.

How the heck did McAwful rise to a position of prominence?

Ed’s a big dude and I’m pretty sure he had a couple of cocktails in him at that point. Anyway, I doubt McAuliffe will forget the encounter any time soon.

And no, he didn’t get Ed into a Le Sabre.
