Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Death Penalty Issue

All across the GOP blogs today is a feeling of elation. Everyone thinks we have found the home run issue that will bring this election home.
Tim Kaine's death penalty stance/record.
I hope everyone is correct, but we need new ads. These new ads are ok, but they need to be followed up with an ad where Jerry says that he will make sure executions are carried out, and that his opponent won't.
We need Jerry to actually say something in an ad other than "Hi this is my ad".
Hopefully this will end up being the break we needed.

    I don't think this helps Kilgore. The Richmond Times Dispatch is reporting that the one case that Kilgore is running an ad on was one which Tim Kaine spent all of 48 minutes out of his firms 600 hours working on the case. That amounts to him at most giving advice to a younger lawyer. This seems to be another example of Kilgore having no ideas and making up an issue. Frankly, as a lawyer, he should be ashamed of himself. I personally have spoken to a number of very conservative republican lawyers who are deeply offended and will not vote for Kilgore because of this unethical attack.

    I think this ad will win some votes, but it has the potential to piss alot of people off as well.
    Its a big gamble.
