Uncle Ross on Tim Kaine

The TD's Ross MacKenzie offers his view of Tim Kaine as a person and a candidate. Among his conclusions:

Kaine also tries to present as the centrist he is not. He is a liberal, no question -- surpassed in his leftism perhaps only by his team-mate Leslie Byrne, the most extreme of that stripe ever to seek Virginia statewide office under the banner of a major party. Kaine has the same problem Warner had, though Kaine has it to a greater degree: masking his liberalism, or repackaging and marketing it as mere moderation.

That sounds about right.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
