Star Power!

KvM posted the latest MN GOP jab at the Klobuchar campaign, for Rallying with a "Washington Celebrity".

Now, granted, Sen. Obama's rise to prominence has been quick, and it would be tough to argue away his celebrity status. But let's keep in mind that he is only a freshman in the US senate, having been at the job just over a year. What I found really humorous, was the last paragraph in the STRIB article today:
He joked about a new book, too. While many thought it was presumptuous for him to write an autobiography at age 33, he said, the book had done well and he had a title in mind for his second: "The Senate Months: My Remarkable Journey from 99th in Seniority to 98th."
If the GOP wants to compare a Freshman in the US Senate with the likes of their own 'Washington Celebrities' that have stumped for Kennedy (ie, President Bush, Vice President Cheney, House Speaker Dennis Hastert, need I go one) then by all means, go for it!
