It often seems that there is no way to convince most Blue State Democrats to even consider voting for Mitt Romney in November– no matter how many moderate positions he takes. But John Fugelsang, who was holding down the fort for Eliot Spitzer at Current this week, found a way to turn a Brooklyn Democrat into a Romney voter: give the vice presidential spot to a Bob Marley clone.
After asking a few key questions about the JFK assassination and Naughty by Nature, Fugelsang continued his man on the street interview by asking his selected passerby how he felt about Mitt Romney. “He’s just a bum,” was his reply, several times. So is there anyone who could energize the bottom half of the ticket so much that he could contemplate voting Republican? Yes– unfortunately, that person is Bob Marley.
He also had some friendly advice for the presumptive Republican nominee.
