Maybe exile himself from Virginia, or at least the Virginia 5th? He's done enough already to elect Tom Perriello. His behind the scenes manipulation of the county chairs to favor a primary to boost Robert Hurt's chances may end up guaranteeing Perriello another term. The least Tucker can do for us now is hide under a rock for a long, long time.
Mark my words, the longer Hurt depends on scum of the earth like Tucker Watkins (of Purple Heart fame) and Chris LaCivita (of Switch Boat fame) the more likely the campaign against Perriello will be based not on politics but the dirty personal attacks that Tucker favors. The "brilliant" idea of trying to attack a guy born in the district as a "New York lawyer" failed in 2008 and I'm sure Tucker's next strategy will end the same way. Bradley Rees is spot on:
Bradley Rees, a Bedford County conservative blogger, radio host and former congressional candidate, disagrees with Perriello’s beliefs — but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t respect him.
“Tom Perriello is a man of principle,” Rees said. “He will come out and state his principles on any given agenda item and you can expect him to vote that way … I admire his principles. I admire his stance on what he believes. I just happen to not believe the same thing.
“He is vulnerable because he has a ‘D’ after his name, frankly. There’s a lot of anti-Democrat sentiment. The letters after the name shouldn’t be the important thing. We should focus on their principles.”
People are angry at Perriello for how he votes and being a Democrat. If the campaign is about the candidates as persons, guess what, Tommy Boy is a likable guy! Certainly more than Robert Hurt, who can't be bothered with silly things like debates and talking to the voters.
