Patrick Murray, a retired US Army Colonel, is, in some respects, running the quintessential David-style insurgency against an incumbent Goliath, Jim Moran.

This blog caught up with Murray at the Alexandria Farmer’s Market, at the commencement of a whistle stop bus tour to get out the vote for Tuesday. This explains the curious pan-pipe soundtrack for the clip:

P.S. forget not the other mad Celt at the far end of the masthead. While I’m laying about in Alexandria, he’s out supporting other campaigns where the blogs are thinner. Godspeed and a full tip jar, Stacy!
