NRCC piles on Perriello

The NRCC is airing this ad in the Roanoke-Lynchburg markets to attack Rep. Perriello for his vote on the stimulus bill.

Consider the source. The Republicans are still coming to turns with the fact that the economy is in the swamp because of their lack of leadership. Congressman Tom Perriello voted for change, which is what he promised at every stop during the campaign. CHANGE means the average folk getting back the American dream after 8 years of robber baron Bush years. CHANGE is making the dollar worth something again for us that cannot put our money in foreign bank accounts. CHANGE is what the Democrats like Congressman Tom Perriello promised and are now starting to deliver. Let the GOP climb back under the rocks they come out from under.

Unfortunately, Congressman Perriello should both get used to this and challenge every allegation made against him. Obviously the GOP has targeted him as easy pickings in 2010, which from their perspective makes sense for a varity of reasons. I fear the next campaign agaist him will be even nastier on a sustained level than the last one. He will need every ounce of his cherubic wunderkindness to battle back!

Hahaha. Well said, aznew. The NRCC considers Tom one of the most vulnerable incumbents in the country, so we are going to have to put up with this for the full two years, and not just the two months before election day. Argh.

Well said faithful reader. I think that it cannot be stressed enough that Republican ideology is largely responsible for the mess we are in, and it was their hard line ideology that was so soundly rejected by the American people in the last two election cycles. They seem to think that they lost because they weren't being ideological enough. At this point if you are being attacked by House Republicans, it is probably a sign that you are doing something right. Keep up the good work Tom.

You know, when you stretch out his head like that, it actually increases the leprechaun-like creepiness of the picture they chose to use.

Somebody needs to get the congressman in a room with a decent lighting kit and a photographer who understands about angles, and get some smear-proof photos taken. This is getting ridiculous.

At least he didn't have -gasp!- a beard this time.
