FYI, the Virginia blogs are reporting that Rasmussen has:
I can't get to it on Rasmussen because it's for "premium" members.
See post #40.
This has just come out. Give 'em time.
I just confirmed. There's more on the way.
This Peter Granato could actually be dangerous. Just try a simple Google search. It looks like he's from FL and one article describes him at a Sheehan event, in another blog posting (which may or may not be him) in a FL he slurs FL GOPer Crist and in another FL article he tried to 'inoccently' get into a Bush event without pre-screening. Here's that article
The Boca Raton News 9/13/06
"One other person from Boca wasnt as lucky Friday. Samuel Sisisky, a local veteran and supporter of Democrats John Kerry and John Edwards, said he had a ticket to get in. So did a companion, Peter Granato of West Palm Beach.
"But when they got to the barrier outside the Miami Arena, a volunteer who was checking tickets said they couldnt go in.
"'They didnt have tickets,' insisted the volunteer, John Ludwig. But the Palm Beach County pair swore they did.
"A cop came over and backed Ludwig. Granato and Sisisky didnt get into the arena.
"Ludwig said the event was free, but people needed an advance ticket. And those who got tickets had to be screened. He said neither Granato nor Sisisky had gotten the once-over.
"And it wasnt the sun that made them hot under the collar. 'I just wanted to see my former commander-in-chief,' said Granato, who said he just returned from a tour of duty in Iraq. Sisisky is a veteran of the Korean War."

Well, it's becoming more and more clear why Mr Webb left the Republican party, and is running as a Democrat. There is no way on the planet he'd be elected, with quotes like this!
It's no wonder the Rats have beaten the Macaca drum so incessantly!
The ad cites Senate Vote #116, 108th Congress, 1st Session as proof of this accusation. True, Allen did vote to table this motion to an amendment. He voted that way because it was April of 2003, the amendment was specific ONLY to National Guard and Reserves, and the appropriation for it was ONE BILLION DOLLARS.
Remember what was going on April 2, 2003 when that vote was made? Well, on March 20, 2003 the Iraq war started. On April 9, U.S. ground forces occupied Baghdad. Landrieus amendment for ONE BILLION DOLLARS was an honorable intent to support our military, but given the timing it seemed fiscally questionable since our forces were beating the $*@t out of Iraqi forces and racing to Baghdad. McCain, Hagel, and Warner voted with Allen to table. [John] Kerry did not even vote.
Of course we learned later that our forces would need more funding and better equipment because of the insurgency. What the most comical thing about this is that Allen did vote to appropriate funds for body armor and better equipment in an emergency supplemental appropriations later that year (vote #400). That vote #400 is the same vote that got Kerry into so much trouble. He voted no on #400, and later told a crowd that I voted for the $87 billion before I voted against it,
Oh, dear!!!! George Allen has a most distinguished endorsement at this link:
And I have a new tag line!
That's good. I figured there was something on this Bill Allen did not like.
Oh, my! It gets better:
Yep, ol' Jim's a staunch Democrat, the most democratic Democrat in the nation, that he is (snicker, snort).
in the long run, I see this as a PLUS for Allen.
First, it's absurd on its face. PUtting out a false statement by a 527 is not the way to go, especially on its first ad.
Second, Virginians really DO despite that level of negative advertising. It will backfire on Webb.
The article makes it seem that these ads are using the same loophole that the Swift Vets did, so I'd guess it's not illegal.
