Does Webb have the integrity to return Kerry's money?

Webb was quite upset at having to defend his character and integrity, after months of his campaign throwing mud around at his opponents. The stuff about his fictional books wasn't really germane to the campaign, but certainly his fight to stop a female vietnam vet memorial was an appropriate topic, as was his lying about his role in adding billets for females in the military and getting an African-American in the memorial.

But lets talk about something a lot more recent. Up until a few months ago, Webb appropriately opposed John Kerry and what he stood for, saying he wouldn't even TALK to Kerry.

But now Webb and Kerry are best buddies. Webb's been seen hugging Kerry, he's talking to him. Hey, he JOINED KERRY'S PARTY, and he's taken Kerry's money.

And now Kerry has stabbed him in the back with our servicemen and women, with an outrageous claim about education:

Kerry then told the students that if they were able to navigate the education system, they could get comfortable jobs - "If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq," he said to a mixture of laughter and gasps.

Webb has tied his campaign and his character to that of John Kerry, and now he must answer for Kerry's claims. Does Webb believe his son is in Iraq because he is too stupid to get a real job? That's what Kerry is saying. Will Webb defend the honor of his son? Will Webb return the money he received from Kerry? Will Webb go back to not talking to the Senator from Massachusetts?

Actually, Webb will probably be silent on this, just as he has been silent on virtually EVERYTHING except defending his right to write in disgusting detail about offensive things simply because he saw them.

Or he'll make some lame statement about not "agreeing" with the statement, but he'll keep the money. Or he'll find some way to blame the Allen campaign, like he blamed them for what Webb wrote in 1979 about women, or about what Webb wrote in his own novels.

He doesn't have it any more. That money is long since spent on ads and staff salaries.

You know you're in trouble when you're reduced to trying to run against someone from a completely different state who isn't even up for election. John Kerry ain't on the ballot. This won't work any better than it did against Tim Kaine last year.

5 points down. What got you there? Negative personal attacks against Jim Webb. More attacks will only keep you there. If you want any chance of getting out of this hole in the next 6 days then you might want to look for something - anything - positive about George Allen's record and promote that instead of basing Allen's entire candidacy on an obsession with Jim Webb.

Best of luck.

Wow, you're guy is up in the polls, cruising to victory, but you feel you have to respond to MY blog?

Something seems terribly amiss when the Webbies stroll into this neck of the woods. Does this story have legs? I understand Webb likes legs.
