First, a message to the state senator from Bath County via the howler. She wants you to quit filling her inbox with campaign drivel and span; nothing you can ever say will convince her to campaign or vote for you. She's just not that into you; maybe it's all those anti-drug laws you tout on your Web site.
Besides, you are a loser. You lost your campaign for lieutenant governor and you lost your campaign for attorney general. Don't you think you should first prove you can win statewide before you ask for a promotion?? Just asking...
Is this really the rhetoric that Brian Moran's campaign wants to be touting? Creigh Deeds is a loser? It is nonsense like this that simply turns so many people off to the Moran candidacy.
And just to be clear, the problem here is not Howling Latina's opinion (although see comments, below). The question is whether, by approvingly citing this post on a semi-official campaign site, the Moran campaign is endorsing language like this.
Also, I ask, do you really "gotta love it" when someone calls a dedicated and loyal Democrat who has served the people of Virginia and fought for Progressive causes for more than 20 years a "loser"? Exactly who is persuaded by this dreck?
No, I don't love it.
Howling Latina's comments, besides being nasty to no apparent purpose, simply have no factual basis. Anyone with a passing familiarity with Virginia history would know that Creigh's "loss" to McDonnell in 2005 by 300 votes out of 1.7 million cast is hardly the performance of a "loser." In fact, it was the best performance by a Democrat running for Attorney General since Mary Sue Terry in 1989.
As for that election that Creigh lost for Lt. Governor, well, I'm relatively new to Virginia politics, so I readily admit that perhaps Creigh ran for this office at some point in the past and I'm unaware of it.
But my favorite part of the post is this gem:
Don't you [Creigh] think you should first prove you can win statewide before you ask for a promotion?? Just asking...
Uh, okay. Well, what's good for the goose... So, I'm "just asking" the same question of Brian Moran.
