Jim Graves-- Conservative???

So... Jim Graves, the democrat running against Michele Bachmann in Minnesota's 6th Congressional district, is trying to convince voters that he's some sort of arch conservative. 

Jim Graves stood up in righteous indignation that Michele Bachmann would actually call him a "big spender." He's none of the sort-- so he says. 

So, to prove that fact, what does he do? 

Why, for a fundraiser he invites one of the biggest spenders in Congressional History, the architect of the Fannie-Freddie disaster, the guy who insisted that Fannie & Freddie were solvent before the housing market crashed--


You just keep those 'small government' bonafides front and center, Mr. Graves.  I'm sure that the voters of CD-6 will take notice!
