[BUMPED, VIDEO]: Supporting Patrick Murray At Pat Troy’s

It’s rough, being a blogger, forced to hang out in classic establishments like Pat Troy’s. I want you to know, readers, that it’s all for America, for you, and the candidate; any incidental pleasures enjoyed in this establishment are taken strictly ‘for the cause’.

Mrs. The Other Smitty and I are here, platonically enjoying a repast ahead of the candidate. Check back for updates.
Update: Pardon the laptop crash; here is your morning video. If you only have time for one, the closing clip with the GOTV encouragement is most crucial for all Americans in general, and VA-8 in particular.
Alexandria City Councilman Frank Fannon introduces Patrick:

Murray contrasts the excellence of the rest of Virginia’s political leadership, in particular, financial management, with the incumbent. No telling who walks through at the end, but, welcome to internet immortality, sir.

Now he decries the national debt as the chief national security threat, as noted by JCS Chair and SECSTATE. An allusion to Moran’s anti-military remarks.

Some personal motivation for running, and a distant explosion lightens the moment. Campaign credits. A highly motivated, fine group of folks, in my estimation.

Patrick Murray concludes, points out Moran’s tactical vulnerabilities, and encourages the troops for the next 60 hours.

So, where are we? Two days from the most consequential mid-term election in American history, we’ve got a superior candidate in a tough district in a race against a career politician like Moran.

Not too swift at, you know, *fiscal responsibility*, but the minions had proven reliable.

When one encounters such a contrast between a patriot like Murray and an apparatchik of the Moran variety, the choice becomes obvious:

PATRICK MURRAY for U.S. CONGRESS
