Webb to file candidacy papers today; Cindy Sheehan, Michael Moore endorsement watch begins
As we reported the other day, Fmr. Navy Sec. in the Reagan Admin., James Webb, who endorsed George Allen in 2000, will file papers today to run for that senate seat himself this year. Given Webb's anti-war focus in the campaign, we unveil a new feature here on TC today -- The Cindy Sheehan / Michael Moore Endorsement Watch. Today is Day 1 of the watch, corresponding with Webb's actual filing of papers (even though he won't make an official announcement until sometime next week.) How long will it take for Sheehan, Moore and the rest of the lunatic left MoveOn.org / Democratic Underground crowd to come out of the woodwork in support of his campaign? Make your best guesses here in our comments section. The person coming closest wins the First Annual George Newman Award and the prize that goes along with it -- two tickets for admission at any time to Disney's America historical theme park in Haymarket, VA!
