Don't believe anything you read. Except for this blog.

From today's Newsweek online: "While some Republicans have avoided being photographed with Bush on the trail, the president continues to be a huge draw on the fund-raising circuit. According to the Republican National Committee, Bush has appeared at more than 40 money events for GOP candidates during this midterm election, raising more than $130 million (more than the president raised during the 2002 midterms)."
So not only are many Republican candidates unashamed to appear at fund-raisers with their extremely unpopular president, but fat-cat donors are unashamed to throw even more money on the fire. Tell us why, again, they call themselves "conservatives"?
