Gilmore Releases New Video

Anita Kumar

Hours before U.S. Senate candidate Mark R. Warner delivers the keynote address tonight at the Democratic National Convention, his Republican opponent James S. Gilmore released a new video on YouTube.

The video, Notorious Politicians and Their Lies, compares Warner to "past U.S. politicians who have lied their way in or out of office, reminding voters of all the promises Warner made about not raising taxes and how Warner broke his word," according to a press release.

"Mark Warner broke a series of promises he made while running for governor,'' said Ana Gamonal, Gilmore's spokeswoman. "Now, liberal Mark Warner is telling the people of Virginia he is bipartisan. Mark Warner cannot be trusted and his keynote speech at the DNC Convention will be the beginning of the end of this false notion he has been working so hard to sell to the voters."

The video features former President Richard Nixon, former President Bill Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama and background music from the movie "Liar Liar."

Kevin Hall, Warner's spokesman, declined to comment.

Wow. It takes a lot of gall for Gilmore to accuse Warner of "lying" when the highly successful budget compromise including tax increase he put through was in response to Gilmore's well-documented lying about the deficit he was leaving behind, understating it by a couple of *billion* dollars.

But what can you expect from a campaign that is fundamentally based on the delusional lie that Gilmore left behind *no* budget problems, and Warner just raised taxes for no reason? If Gilmore had any accomplishments to run on, he wouldn't have to run as senator for Bizarro World.

My thoughts EXACTLY, Jim E-H

For a moment, when I read this story, I thought I'd slipped into an alternate universe where everything had been reversed.

Does Gilmore think we forgot the stunt he pulled?

Just wow.
