Jim Geraghty over at NRO’s Campaign Spot sums up the Deeds metastrategy nicely:
After the Washington Post wrote about Bob McDonnell’s thesis on page A1 on Sunday, Deeds senior advisor Mo Elleithee in a blast e-mail Sunday, wrote “Please take a few minutes to read the article and then forward it to every person you know: friends, family, neighbors, you name it,” according to the state’s GOP.
The answer for the sudden focus on Bob McDonnell can be found in five numbers: 15, 14, 8, 8, 15. That’s the margin of McDonnell’s lead in the last five polls in the state.
This is so ridiculously lame, I can’t believe we’re honestly wasting time on this.
