Conservative radio hosts quiet on Duke
July 2, 2005
It makes me cringe a bit.
Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham is scheduled to appear at Cottonwood Creek Park on Monday, the Fourth of July.
Opinions vary whether he'll show up.
In any other summer, a red-white-and-blue gathering in Encinitas would hit the congressman flush in his sweet spot. On any other Fourth, he'd bask in the adulation befitting a decorated war hero on the nation's birthday.
Cunningham's sunny smile has been a signature of North County for 13 years, ever since the Vietnam ace flew up from the South Bay to shoot down Congressman Bill Lowery in a memorable Republican dogfight.
But this summer is like no other summer on his record.
