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.
