If you watched Rachel Maddow last night, you got a chance to see one of the great characters in American politics, Dave "Mudcat" Saunders of Roanoke Va.
I got to know Mudcat because he was involved in Jim Webb's 2006 campaign. If you went to the Southern States Caucus at the first YearlyKos in Las Vegas that year, you also encountered Mudcat.
Mudcat is working on a campaign in the 7th CD of Virginia, the seat currently held by Eric Cantor. The Democratic candidate that Saunders is supporting is Wayne Powell. Yes it would be an upset for a Leader in the House to be defeated, but anyone remember Tom Foley?
Anyhow, take a look at the video, and give some thought to helping Mudcat out with the Powell campaign.
