“For heaven’s sakes, the agenda of the WaPo is so transparent and constantly ridiculous! They continue their near daily attacks on Bob McDonnell by leading with a gay controversy in this article, then try to help their chosen one Steve Shannon with a gay controversy in this article.
“Is this the Dems’/WaPo’s new final push strategy? Get out the gay vote? Don’t they have this locked up already? Are the Dems doing so poorly that they need to shore up their gay base?”
“NRO’s Campaign Spot looks at an article with Creigh Deeds and Bob McDonnell answering the same questions. And comes away impressed with McDonnell’s answer to a question from the magazine’s Twitter followers.
“’I think that Bob McDonnell was able to offer a genuine compliment and praise for his opponent says a great deal about him.’”

“Both Bob McDonnell and Creigh Deeds stopped in Roanoke this week and the contrast couldn’t be more glaring. Bob McDonnell, Bill Bolling, Ken Cuccinelli and Mitt Romney were greeted by over 200 enthusiastic and fired up supporters. Creigh Deeds was greeted by about 70 people, half of whom were HS kids who had walked over from the City School as part of class. It’s Getting Lonely For Deeds.”

Virginia Virtucon: Another Day and Three More Polls Show McDonnell Walking Away With This Race
“Today, Roanoke College, Suffolk University and Daily Kos / Research 2000 all released their polls showing Bob McDonnell holding a lead of anywhere between 10 and 17 points. Roanoke and Suffolk polled the downballot statewide races as well and found the GOP holding significant double-digit leads in both of those races as well.
“If all these numbers hold and the undecideds either stay home or jump on the McDonnell bandwagon to be on the winning side, there is a VERY real possibility that McDonnell will be elected by a margin not seen since the GOP became competitive in Virginia during the last 40 years.”
