Perriello could lie about Congressman Goode's record some more and spend more on the ads that have effectively served as the only education that some people, like Ms. Orlando, feel they need in order to make a choice. Anyone who cares to take the time to truly check the record and anyone who has ever known Virgil Goode will tell you that "greedy" is one of the least likely adjectives that would be used to describe him. He is popular because of his record and his plain-speaking style. Mr. Perriello and his funding sources can underestimate and laugh all they want at that style. Some parts of this country are still more concerned with substance.

According to non-partisan experts ( http://www.congress.org/congressorg/power_ran... ), ineffective is the most appropriate adjective to describe Goode. Like President Bush, a plain-speaking style may help him get elected, but it doesn't make Goode any more effective.

Important but yet another tape has surfaced of an interview with Obama and the San Francisco Chronical. Obama states that it is his intentions to bankrupt the coal industry. It is unblievable how little we know about this man. I am at a loss as to how anyone could support him. Bankrupt the coal industry via taxes!! In many of his magical speeches he stated he was for clean coal. OH wait, he said that when he WAS IN COAL COUNTRY. What a liar!!!!!!!
