New NRA ad for McDonnell

Anita Kumar

The National Rifle Association is airing new TV ads on behalf of Republican Bob McDonnell that appeal to those who are worried about government intervention.

Check it out here:

Meanwhile, two Italian American organizations are calling on McDonnell to ask the NRA to o take down a previous TV commericial because of its "offensive characterization of Italian American."

"This type of negative imagery reinforces defaming stereotypes about an entire ethnic group and undermines the progress made in ending prejudice against all groups in our country,'' says a joint statement by the Columbus Citizens Foundation and the National Italian American Foundation: "We would hope that gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell would appeal to the electorate through substantive policy discussion on issues of importance to the State of Virginia rather than appealing through negative stereotyping."

Look on the bright side, Deeds. This shattering loss will free you up to find one those vaunted leftist "green jobs." Report back to us on your progress in that area, won't you buddy? 'Preciate it..

Hahaha - I hope ALL McDonnell supporters go out to vote for him on November 2ND!

Did anyone else catch that? Is the national NRA (with HQ in Fairfax...) really so out of touch with Virginia that they just automatically bail out the Republican over the Democrat with an A rating from them and then just guess what day the election is...
