Report: Ron Silver Dies

Dead of cancer. Age 62.

Once a self-identified lifelong Democrat, Silver was a founding member of the liberal-leaning Creative Coalition in 1989. But he made a breathtaking political transformation, going from far left to radical right after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

He spoke at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York, enthusiastically backing a second term for President Bush.

And speaking of, does anybody have video of that? It was very short, but one of the best speeches of the convention. All I can find is the text here.
