WOW....What a day for Virginia bloggers. The issue is something I have blogged about many times: The stupidity
of the Tim Kaine campaign to make an issue of Jerry Kilgores voice and sexuality. What is even more absurd is their attempt now to deny it. Today while getting my hair cut at a local barber shop and discussing politics a man said "My son sounds just like Jerry Kilgore
." This made me think of my family and yes, I have family members who sound like Jerry. My father is one of these people. So yes this rhetoric pisses me off. I am not as educated as other ODBA members, nor am I a good writer or researcher. I am in touch with my community and have been for many years. I write about how I feel and what I hear at work, school, church, and socializing. The whole effeminate
issue is bad politics, if not as my grandfather would say "chicken shit" politics. The use of that word is sexist at the least. The Lady in my life is pulling her hair and spreading the word at school because she takes this as a attack on women. I commented on this
first in January. If Jerry Kilgore sounds effeminate, then my father does too, and I am sure every person in SWVA understands Kaines intent. I am not alone here in SWVA and the Kaine crew will HEAR us speak LOUD and CLEAR election day.
Now on to the real bloggers

I will add that if you read comments by the Kaine crew you are made to believe Kilgore never speaks in public....Pure BS!Video More here.
