Kaine - 1 Macaca - 0

I hope Allen doesn't dribble tobacco spittle on the rest of us on his way into oblivion.

Unforunately for Macaca Romney has colored all right wing candidates with radio isotope that gonna be hard to wash off. No matter, Macaca wouldn't have won anyway, the demographics have changed and Va is turning blue.

In your report on the debates, why is Kaine's obvious gaffe not mentioned. Kaine is recommending a minimum tax for everyone. Please see other news outlets that are not biased in their reporting to get the whole story on the debates. Remember, Kaine closed the interstate rest stops and welcome centers in Virginia as a way to help balance the budget when he was governor.

How awful - you mean that Kaine proposed something that appeals to republicans? If republicans now know that they can transform the 47 percent of the population that are moochers into rapacious billionaires just as easily with KAINE as with Allen, well, why vote for the Macacameister?

Is there a downside here?

Did you read the whole thing?
"In my campaigns class, I always tell students that polls finally start to make sense around mid-September," said University of Virginia political scientist Larry Sabato.

"If Obama is doing well in a poll, then Kaine should also be doing well," he added. "In many states, not just Virginia, this is going to be a coattail election."

But Sabato said that he felt both new surveys were "inflated a bit in the Democratic direction.""

some republicans have turned sides to the Democratic party because they can no longer afford to be and/or follow the Republican party
