Do you have to be a fraternity brother to post on
Virginia Conservative? I tried to post a response to that ridiculous paean to "taking the high road" stuff.
Like I would have said there, if I could get the secret handshake; George Allen has a record of endorsing/abetting every failure of George Bush. He WILL go negative and I will call VirginiaConservative naive and foolish.
So let's just get past the silly Kum Ba Jah stuff conservatives - your dog is stupid, he can't hunt, and he barks too much. The "low road" is his road.

Bubby, your comment made it to my post--twice even, though I deleted the duplicate.
I'll put you down as "undecided."

Webb has the right approach. Taking the high road does pay off-- remember '04 in Illinois, when Jack Ryan was slated to be the Republican senate candidate, running against Barack Obama. Then came the Ryan sex scandal. Well, as that scandal was brewing, before Ryan withdrew from the race, the press asked Obama to respond. And Obama opted to take the high road, not talking about the sex scandal and focusing, instead, on the issues. The people of Illinois admired that. The people of Virginia will similarly admire Jim Webb's reluctance to resort to mudslinging.

Political campaigns take the high road PUBLICLY all the time. That doesn't mean they're not privately pushing rumors and innuendo...

Especially when they don't have to. VC just recently had a post more or less calling on Bloggers to do the dirty work on this issue, so any other campaign can easily not focus on it. There are other people who will do the slinging.
