Oh, yeah Terry - who? - OH yeah McAuliffe. Real smart, Terry; attacking gun rights IN VIRGINIA. What a dope.
Deeds had campaign ads running that trumpeted that he (Deeds) "led the fight to close Virginia's gun-show loophole" until someone on his campaign staff saw the kiss of death in that claim and replaced it with arglebargle about his "education based recovery plan."
Seriously, McAuliffe probably helped Deeds erase the memory of the "gun show" gaffe (but I am going to remember it in November). McAuliffe even had his NoVa Campaign HQ in the same King Street rowhouse that Obama had HIS in, which shows who HIS backers are, and look where it got him. McAuliffe's ads even stated he was running an "Obama style campaign". HO ho ho. And on top of everything else, when McAuliffe smiles, he looks as if he just sat on a banana.
And McAuliffe didn't just get defeated, Deeds beat him like a rented mule. And let's not even mention, Bugs Moran's kid brother who I think Bugs sobered up enough to vote for but practically nobody else did.
All of this augurs very well. The Ratz thought they had dyed Virginia blue in permanent ink. Evidently, they were wrong. We'll see come November.
