Rep. Dave Reichert's good news and bad news is that President Bush is visiting him in Bellevue today. The worst of the modern presidents will raise money and pat Sheriff Dave on the back for being a good Bush Republican. Add to that the resignation of Alberto Gonzales announced today and you have a good campaign Monday for Democrat Darcy Burner. Bush is here to raise money for her as well, it seems. According to Burner spokesperson Sandeep Kaushik, in the past three days the Burner for Congress campaign has received 2,113 individual online contributions totaling $75,600. Kaushik says the money is intended by its donors to "send a message" to Bush and Reichert to seek a speedy, responsible ending to the war in Iraq (though that's not going to happen, even if Democrats come to power). Burner also opportunistically set aside an hour for media interviews from Bellevue this afternoon and then will hold a "virtual town hall" on Iraq, live-steamed on the darcyburner.com Web site, featuring retired senior military officers. Around the same time, George Bush will be doing his best for the Burner camp, blocking off the roadways. His motorcade will require local, state and federal officers to stop and snarl commuter traffic from Seattle and downtown Bellevue at rush hour, putting those recent I-5 backups to shame, all in the name of political fundraising. Marvelous. The Reichert re-election effort is the best campaign Burner has run yet.
