Helen Lovejoy Runs for Governor

Or at least that’s what one could easily assume after reading Democratic gubernatorial entrant Terry McAuliffe’s latest email to the faithful (and me…still don’t know how I got on that list).

While referencing Bob McDonnell’s opposition to the “compromise” reach on banning smoking, Terry’s copywriters went to work:

This week, Tim Kaine reached a bipartisan agreement with Republican Speaker of the House Bill Howell to pass legislation ensuring our children won’t be exposed to secondhand smoke in Virginia restaurants. But yesterday Bob McDonnell spoke out against the smoking ban — putting ideology ahead of our kids’ health. And his opposition could very well jeopardize the bill’s passage.

Nevermind the adults involved. Or the question of property rights.

Won’t somebody please think of the children?
