More fodder in Davis-Petersen ad wars

Amy Gardner

State Sen. Jeannemarie Devolites Davis (R-Fairfax) has debuted a new advertisement on network television tonight, continuing the high-dollar, high-stakes ad wars with Democrat J. Chapman Petersen that could permanently transform Northern Virginia electoral politics.
Devolites Davis became the first Virginia legislative candidate from Northern Virginia to buy expensive network air time in the Washington market. Petersen quickly followed suit, as has Democrat Janet Oleszek, who is challenging state Sen. Ken Cuccinelli II in western Fairfax County.
Watch the new ad here.

The good news about all this is that Petersen is reacting. The more we see of him and the more we hear his inability to reason, the more we realize he is not qualified for this office.

It's worth noting that they had to reach back to July to find a headline from the Post criticizing Chap for his ads. It's not like Devolites-Davis has been real straight with the truth lately.

The use of the word "illegals" to refer to undocumented aliens is disturbing. It strips these individuals of their humanity and demeans them. Of all the horrors in the world, I'm not sure that "letting kids of immigrants get a college education" is high on my list of things to complain about. I think that kind of attack really weakens Jeannemarie's credibility as a moderate.
