You know things are bad for Democrats in general and state Sen. Edd Houck (D-Spotsy) in particular. Just how desperate is Houck? Well, he is currently out in the field with a poll testing ways that he can tie himself to Sen. Marky Mark who remains popular in spite (or perhaps because) of having a record of zero accomplishments in the Senate. Of course, his main accomplishments as Governor were pushing through an unnecessary $1.4 billion tax hike (Virginia was on course to run a $600 million surplus) and then “misplacing” $137 million intended for education. If Houck wants to wrap himself in the mantle of that type of Enron accounting, he’s welcome to it. Apparently, Houck cannot stand alone on his years of service in the Senate and is now looking for something, anything to save his flailing reelection bid.
Help me, Marky Mark! You’re my only hope! Love, Edd
If you want a state senator who actually shares the values of Gov. Bob McDonnell, then it is time to dump Houck and elect Bryce Reeves!
UPDATE: Right on cue, a Houck mailer hits…
Would that be the $137 million in funds for education that the Warner administration MISPLACED? I think so.
And please, someone, anyone, tell Senator Houck that his name is spelled “Ed” and not “Edd.”
