Goode Pointe

Virgil Goode, the Fifth District Virginia Congressman running for his political life against first-timer Tom Perriello, is either ignorant of the difference between "corporate sponsor" and Democratic National Committee or he's lying. I wouldn't place a bet on either because it's a 50-50 proposition.

His latest TV ad takes Perriello's assertion that Perriello won't take money from corporate donors and tells you that he has taken money from high-profile individuals in business (named), a "special interest" (not named, but probably the DNC) and others. The ad does not say which "corporate sponsor" might be involved, as if ...

Fact is, unless you're paying close attention--and who does at this point?--the truth gets lost in the blather. One truth: $1.4 million to Goode from corporate interests, who, no doubt, expect something substantial in return.
