With Virginia as a battleground state in the 2008 election and given Democrat Barack Obama's damaging gaffe earlier this year about rural voters clinging "to guns or religion", a new gaffe by another Democrat should be worthy of media attention. It remains to be seen if the mainstream media will even notice. (h/t Reformed Chicks Blabbing)
Running to fill the seat being vacated by retiring Republican John Warner, former Gov. Mark Warner (no relation) has a healthy lead in recent polls and the admiration of a pliant media. Yet an audio recording of Warner at a Democratic Party gathering caught the candidate disparaging gun owners, home schoolers, and religious conservatives as "threatening to what it means to be an American."
Republican opponent and former Gov. Jim Gilmore has a campaign ad (embedded below the fold) that features the audio:
He previously denied this to the Richmond Times Dispatch
can you say ‘macaca’?
How I wish I lived in Virginia so I could work and vote against him! You all know, of course, that he is running for the Senate in order to position himself for a run for the presidency.
O God, how long will You allow people who hate this country to triumph? Will You punish those of us who love You, along with the abortionists who vote for Obama?
There is a reason he didn’t run for President and wasn’t selected as VP. He has a Clinton problem. The local press won’t touch it with a ten foot poll but Warner is one of the most disgusting candidates I’ve ever encountered. The level he has went to to gain power though lies and deception is just absolutely beyond belief and the media in this state are just horrible. They brought Senator Allen down and they have mastered their method of reporting but not reporting.
Of course the media will ignore it. Why are you even bothering to ask?
