Which One's the Democrat ... Again

First we read about Erskine Bowles trying to sound like a Republican in the Raleigh News & Observer. Now it's in the Charlotte Observer: Bowles is said to be "delivering rhetoric more often associated with Republicans. 'Less government paperwork (for businesses), less government regulation,' he told a small crowd at the chamber of commerce in Fayetteville, 'and we've got to get rid of these frivolous lawsuits.' " (Story here. Charlotte Observer requires registration.)

It's tiresome to have to repeat this ... but given the choice between a Republican and a wannabe Republican, the North Carolina voting public will choose the Republican every time.

Whatever happened to Erskine during his 2002 race against Liddy Dole seems to have scrambled his brain, if not his values. And as a matter of fact, it's actually not too late for a real Democrat to declare and run for U.S. Senate.
