America's most wanted

When Brian Moore won the Socialist Party USA's nomination for president last October, I doubt he saw himself working the national media circuit one week before the election. But, with the persistent accusations of the 's' word coming from the McCain/Palin campaign, the press seems curious to learn about about the actual socialist candidate. Moore has been interviewed by Fox News' Neil Cavuto, the New Republic, and by Stephen Colbert on last night's Colbert Report.

Well, he's no Norman Thomas. I'll be interested to see if the increased exposure helps the SPUSA increase its 2004 vote total of 10,837 (itself nearly double the party's total vote from the 2000 election.).
