Oh, this could be fun. Remember a couple weeks ago when the Tim Kaine campaign put words in the media’s mouth, changing their stories to fit their needs a completely lying to their supporters and Virginia voters? Well it seems they’re at it again, this time linking to and quoting an article that no longer exists:
The Kaine post links to this article that is no longer on the Washington Post’s website. Where’d it go? What was the full context of the article? Was it removed because it was factually incorrect?
We don’t know.
And Tim Kaine is banking on that.
But, hey, if we’re going to get in the business of linking to phantom articles to help prove a point without there being any remaining context or way to verify, two can play at that game.
RICHMOND, VA – Tim Kaine today told a group of kindergardeners that he hopes they have strong bladders because he can’t wait to close rest stops everywhere, but he quickly backtracked and asked the kids not to tell their parents because they might not vote for him.
“Just kidding,” he said with a wink and raise of his rogue eyebrow. “But, seriously, how else am I going to get your mom and dad to want to pay more taxes?”
ROANOKE, VA – During a closed door meeting with Democratic officials and third party PACs, Tim Kaine laughed when asked about his proposed tax hikes as governor and how they might impact his run for the United States Senate.
“You think they remember that stuff?” Kaine said. “None of it passed. Heck, I couldn’t even get a Democrat to vote for my last budget! Thank heavens the General Assembly saved my tail like that, otherwise my legacy might have been tax hikes!
“Still,” Kaine continued, “if you think $4 billion was bad, just wait until I get to Washington. Woo boy, just think of the revenue increases I can help cram through there!”
The room all nodded their heads in agreement and joined in Kaine’s maniacal laughter.
Too bad those links don’t work any more. The rest of the articles were just BRUTAL!
