Kaine wastes time finger-pointing ... Times-Dispatch takes notice

Democrat Tim Kaine's campaign for U.S. Senate is using the same play book and the same tired Democratic tactics we've seen year after year. This time, however, the media is taking notice ... and writing about it.

Take, for instance, the Richmond Times-Dispatch's commentary today that noted Kaine's finger-pointing at Republican opponent George Allen is a classic example of the old saying, "When you point a finger at someone, you have three fingers pointing back at you."

The Times-Dispatch pointed out that the Kaine campaign demanded to know if George Allen agreed with Del. Bob Marshall's "personhood" bill that was making its way through the General Assembly. As anyone following this U.S. Senate campaign knows, in January Marshall belatedly threw his hat into the ring for the U.S. Senate race.

After hearing Allen's response to the Marshall bill, the Kaine campaign pounced in a way that caught the attention of some in the media:
Kaine originally belittled Allen's "convoluted" response to a question regarding personhood. Then, after Allen said he would support federal personhood legislation, Kaine blasted him for "wasting time on divisive issues" instead of focusing on jobs.

Meanwhile, George Allen has been talking jobs, economy, rising gas prices, energy independence, supporting small business, and other issues important to Virginians.

Apparently Tim Kaine chooses not to hear....
