oh yeah… the issues

Brent Finnegan -- October 31st, 2006

So many things about this senatorial race are about sensationalism. It’s rather absurd. Make no mistake: I count myself in with all the other bloggers and reporters that often take the bait and go for the sensational over the germane.

With this event in Charlottesville earlier today, it’s clear that the issues are beyond lost.

Just thought I’d take a minute and point out this blog post (referring to Webb’s visit to Harrisonburg) as a reminder that there are real issues at stake in this election–bigger issues than if, or whom Allen spit on, or who got tackled for what.

I’ll be happy when this election is over.
