This quote says it all about the non-partisan Wellstone ‘memorial’:
Still, he said he knew that the service became more than just a remembrance for the dead when he got a call from a reporter “who wanted some Republican response to the memorial.
“I said [to the reporter], ‘Do you realize what you just said?’ “
The he is Bill Walsh, the State GOP Deputy Executive Director. If it was not a blatant political rally, why would the press want partisan commentary?
There will be a backlash for this behavior, I predict.
