Here’s one deficit you can bet the Democrats aren’t loving:
Republican Robert F. McDonnell and his supporters are outspending Democrat R. Creigh Deeds and his backers nearly 2 to 1 on TV ads in the closely watched race for Virginia governor.
That is unlikely to change in the month before the election Nov. 3.
I haven’t been following this race like I should — because it’s nearly as difficult to get excited about the Republicans as it is the Democrats. If the Republicans benefit from President Obama’s early stumbles — and Congress’s perpetual unpopularity — let’s hope it’s because they learned their lesson from the Bush years.
Because more Donkey Lite ain’t gonna cut it.
