Looks like our Congressman, Virgil Goode, is once again drawing national attention to the little ol' 5th District of Virginia, this time for a deplorable TV ad which depicts Tom Perriello (one of the finest people to run for office around here in a long time) as a scary, dark-skinned, gay-friendly, soft-on-immigration northeastern liberal. See here and here for some of the scorn that's resulted. The national backlash that this awful ad is creating couldn't come at a better time for Tom's campaign -- I'm sure it's generating all kinds of financial donations, and you can add to the pile by clicking here.
