National Review Online

So what is the Deeds strategy? Balkanization, with lies. In the northern suburbs, he’s making the case that McDonnell is secretly plotting the reestablishment of the Spanish Inquisition. In the middle of the state, he’s running ads claiming McDonnell is a tax-increaser, a charge the Virginian-Pilot deems “ludicrous.” In the south, Deeds is runing ads blaming McDonnell for Appalachian Power Co.’s recent series of rate hikes, a charge the Lynchburg News and Advance shredded as an “outright lie.”
