I just got home, at nearly 11pm, to watch tonight’s Kaine/Kilgore debate on video, as I was out at a party. I haven’t talked to anybody, and I haven’t watched a second of the debate. But I did just now check my e-mail, and found that I had an e-mail from the Kaine campaign entitled “Kaine wins statewide debate.”
OK, thought, of course they’d say that. I then saw that I had an e-mail from the Kilgore campaign. But rather than being titled “Kilgore wins statewide debate,” as the Kilgore camp has said in past e-mails, the subject was “Sabato Says Kilgore was ‘Aggressive’.” Hmm.
Opening the e-mail, I saw that nowhere did it say that Kilgore won, or even did well. Instead, my eye went immediately to this telling phrase in the opening paragraph: “Jerry demonstrated once again that he is a workhorse, not a showhorse.”
Translation: We…uh…we showed the horse. Nobody liked it. Kilgore must have done really badly.
Amber’s starting the tape. It’s showtime.
