Al Weed

this guy is running against virgil goode here in va. goode, ironically, is very very bad!

please virginia demmies, please, go vote in mass:
issue one: gay marriage, check
b]Weed, who has a gay daughter, supports civil unions for gay couples. He said prior to Wednesday's forum that he wants his daughter to have the same rights as his married son.

At the forum, Weed called Goode's words on the subject an “opportunistic appeal to the innate bigotry that tempts all of us.â€￾ He said the congressman makes a big point of opposing gay marriage and says the unions would “destroy Social Security. … This is alarmist claptrap for which there are no supporting data.â€￾[/b]

issue two, the war in iraq: check
Goode, a graduate of the University of Richmond and the University of Virginia law school, disagreed with Weed on the war in Iraq, which the Democrat referred to as “the failed war,â€￾ on foreign aid, which Goode said he would slash, and on abortion, which the Republican opposes while Weed supports a woman's right to choose.

healthcare: check plus
Weed pledged to work to expand Medicaid to cover all Americans for health care and prescription drugs in a single-payer system.

“Every other industrialized country in the world has this, but Virgil and his pals in the drug and health insurance industry will try to persuade you that health care justice and efficiency is a socialized plot,â€￾ Weed said. “I believe you can think for yourselves.â€￾

This election makes me feel like a little kid not wanting to go to bed on Christmas Eve.

I can't watch - I am too nervous and now wasted due to other things to add the fact that I live in Missouri to the list... :shock:
