Whose party is it anyway?

Have you seen Jim Tedisco's new TV commercial?

The Republican candidate in New York's 20th Congressional District quotes Democratic President Barack Obama, saying: "In these difficult times, we're not Democrats or Republicans. We're Americans."

Make no mistake: This is a Republican candidate in a heavily Republican district so worried about losing (after all, his lead in the polls over Democrat Scott Murphy has shrunk from 12 points to 4) that he's now quoting the Democratic president in an effort to win over Democratic voters.

If Jim Tedisco needs Democratic voters to win in the New York 20th, stick a fork in him. He's done.
