    Ha ha! I clicked through the SNL-iPhone thing to watch that video. Before the video, I got a Tim Kaine for Senate ad where he says that he’ll work with any President as Senator.

    Say what you will about him, he seems to know which way the political wind blows. One of the first to jump on the Obama bandwagon, one of the first to throw O under the wagon.

  • Wombat_socho

    I wouldn’t trust him any farther than I could throw him, and I’m not noted for my upper-body strength.

  • scarymatt

    Oh, definitely. I’m looking forward to casting another vote against him. Hopefully this one will take.

    I’m just fascinated to see how quickly the rats will jump from the Good Ship Zero.

    It’s one thing for Virginia to send Mark Warner to the Senate, even though he’s proved to be a cabana boy for Harry Reid, but Kaine is an overt sniveling leftist.

    Any Virginian who votes for that little creep should be exiled to Maryland in tar and feathers.
