However, they sometimes are so anxious to find a mistake by a Republican candidate that they look foolish. They do this by taking every Democrat attack and passing it along, without screening weak from strong attacks. Whatever their Democrat sources give them they publish.
Here is an example in today's Anita Kumar's column:
"They(Democrats) criticized McDonnell for standing by silently while his surrogate Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas and presidential candidate in 2008, said Northern Virginians "aren't necessarily thinking the same way folks like you and me think."
Safe to say, and sadly in my view, most northern Virginians don't think like Mike Huckabee.
Surely the reporter, Anita Kumar, has to realize that Northern Virginia, at least politically,and Huckabee meant in terms of politics, thinks differently then the rest of the state.
