Creigh Deeds gets smart, the Washington Post gets stupid

Washington Post

Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate R. Creigh Deeds will launch a campaign this week to portray his opponent’s longtime efforts to restrict abortion as out of the mainstream, a potentially risky strategy for a Democrat in the once solidly conservative state.

I don’t live in Virginia, but I can’t help but notice that the last 3 winners of state wide elections, Mark Warner, JIm Webb, and Tim Kaine, all ran as pro-choice candidates. Moreover, I seem to remember that Doug Wilder, in his 1989 bread through race for Governor, ran as a pro-choice candidate. In Virginia they will vote for a black, pro-choice Democrat, rather than a white anti-abortion nut. So, if Deeds can portray his opponent as an anti-abortion nut, he can probably win.

I am not the only one who feels this way.

Edit –
Creigh Deeds may be smart but it seems that members of his campaign could use a clue.
