Yes Virginia, there is a Straight Talker

The battle for Virginia continues to heat up. One of the Senator’s hometown papers is examining the race from miles away, while a poll released today shows Barack Obama with a slight edge, 46% to 44%, still outside the margin of error and both candidates down a percentage from last month. This seems to match up with Obama’s sliding favorability in the latest Rasmussen poll, indicating that perhaps people are rethinking reflexively voting for Obama simply because he is the “Change” candidate and are beginning to examine his hard left agenda. (It should also be noted that this poll was apparently a robo-call–the method of asking questions can be one of many factors affecting a poll’s credibility, a topic I hope to discuss in depth in the future)

Meanwhile, Garren Shipley has a light-hearted look at the sudden attention that is being lavished upon Virginia’s newspaper writers, who are used to a slightly different tone and pace.
