Robert Byrd is a better actor than the other guy.

In Anne Barth's new TV ad, Sen. Robert Byrd stumps for her congressional bid against Shelley Moore Capito. While the one guy is doing a bad impression of that douche from the Bob Evans commercials, Byrd, erm, plays himself.

It'll be interesting to see if god-king of West Virginia politics has enough coattails to get his chief lieutenant elected and thereby hand-pick his political heir.

My guess is that this will be the race to watch in WV this year.

Great spot. I hope it works because, well, you know. . . .

In all fairness, if Capito runs an ad highlighting her pro-choice record and her ability to bring home the bacon instead of misleading maps and scary brown people, it will get props here, too.

Q: Which is older, Robert Byrd or dirt?

A: Dirt, by six months.

Here all week, etc.

Good ol down to Earth kind of ad that WVians will relate to.
I suspect it will work.
Capito has been allowed to do nothing for WV long enough.

Oh, and comparing Sen Byrd to dirt. . . cute, juvenile and not very original. . . . and very disrespectful to one of the the few voices of sanity in Washington the past eight years.

Don't mind Spike, he is still miffed about Byrd's speech in the Burgesses denouncing The Forty-Five, his die-hard support of Celtic, and---on the three occaions that he has met Spike---his need to refer to Belfast as a "lovely" city.

The grim reaper will soon defeat grand kleagle Byrd, and not soon enough.

Capito will beat Barth like a government mule.

He already did. Byrd has been dead for years and was replaced by an audioanamatronic robot from Disney. The proof is that he accidently went into the William Howard Taft portion of the "Hall of Presidents" last year on in a committee meeting.

As for Capito/Barth, don't underestimate the power of the pro-Milf vote this year.
