A Democrat? Who, me?

Rep. Tom Perriello has an ad on Charlottesville radio - featuring all his votes that the Tea Party folk could swallow.
Goes well with this David Brooks' column.
Many of my liberal friends are convinced that the Republican Party has a death wish. It is sprinting to the right-most fever swamps of American life. It will end up alienating the moderate voters it needs to win elections.
There’s only one problem with this theory. There is no evidence to support it. The Republican Party may be moving sharply right, but there is no data to suggest that this has hurt its electoral prospects, at least this year.
Perriello touts his differences with Obama and Pelosi in his ad - in Charlottesville.
If a party has a death wish, sounds more like Democrats than Republicans in 2010.
