Another Celebrity Campaigns for Kerry

Substance vs style in Florida

From the South Florida Sun Sentinel:

Last week, former New York Mayor Ed Koch was in Palm Beach County to whip up Jewish voters on behalf of Bush, and attracted hundreds to his speech.

Democrats brought in their own non-Florida Jewish celebrity last week: Jon Bauman.

He was "Bowzer," the singer dressed in black as the doo-wop group Sha Na Na sang 1950s hits during the '60s through the early '80s.

Bauman's solo act tours nationally.

He cleared his schedule to spend October in South Florida on behalf of Kerry.

"I'm Jewish, which is kind of a qualification because you understand the issues involving Israel," he said.

"My notoriety gives me a shred of advantage in getting some attention," he said.


Bauman's quote is emblematic of how much value Democrats place on celebrity and how warped their values are. But read the whole article. It is interesting.
