'Dirty Deeds' reappears

Anita Kumar

A Democrat played a starring role at this weekend's GOP Advance in Williamsburg.

The Republican Party of Virginia, which organized the annual retreat, prominently featured a video at today's luncheon attended by 600 activists poking fun of state Sen. Creigh Deeds, the Democrats' unsuccessful gubernatorial candidate.

Isn't the election over?

Republican Bob McDonnell defeated Deeds by a whopping 18 points more than one month ago.

After the election, McDonnell said he looked forward to working with Deeds and called him a "good public servant." Today, McDonnell's speech at the lunch was positive and he never mentioned Deeds.

But before McDonnell spoke, party chairman Pat Mullins proudly talked about what the state party was able to do to help in the governor's race and then played a compilation of videos his staff had created earlier this year.

The audience laughed at some of the videos (particularly the one where the Democrat was dubbed 'Dirty Deeds') but later, some privately said the continued attacks were in poor taste and well...unnecessary considering the election is over.

"Great videos,'' Mullins said. "I'm glad we had enough money to put those together."

Come on Anita give Virginia Senator Deeds a break ... just because the GOP likes "poor taste" name calling ... the title should read "Washington Post Endorsed Candidate for Governor Still Being Slammed By GOP Long After Election"
