I guess at this point George Allen needs all the help he can get:
And on Wednesday, he'll [George Bush] attend another closed-press fundraiser for GOP Sen. George Allen of Virginia, whose race just got a bit tougher when he -- unintentionally, he claims -- maligned a young Indian American aide to his Democratic opponent on camera.
Of course Bush is even heading out to help the campaign of those candidates that are trying to distance themselves from him:
Tomorrow, he heads to Minnesota, where Rep. Mark Kennedy, the Republican Senate candidate facing a slightly uphill race, has been trying to distance himself from Bush. That might make Kennedy a "weenie" in Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty's book; Pawlenty, who's also looking at a potentially competitive race, told First Read recently that when candidates distance themselves from Bush (he did not name Kennedy), it's a "weenie" maneuver. Bush will raise money for the state GOP and for the party's candidate for Kennedy's House seat. The fundraiser will be closed-press.
"Weenie" maneuver is a perfect description of it. They sure don't want to be associated with Bush, but they don't mind his help on the campaign trails. You can also bet that if they get elected that they will get their own rubberstamp for Bush.
