Kaine speaks to Wise supporters via phoneOn the very day that Mr. Kaine (who from this point forward will be known in these parts as Wienie Boy) chose not to bother with a little bad weather, I was making a journey from Bland to Washington DC. Funny thing, I hardly noticed it and certainly wasn't intimidated by a little wet snow.

WISE – Winter weather kept Lt. Gov. Tim Kaine from attending the first leg of his five-city gubernatorial campaign launch here Wednesday, but he managed to speak to supporters by telephone.
Poor visibility at the Lonesome Pine Regional Airport created dangerous landing conditions for Democrat Kaine. He and his father-in-law, Linwood Holton, a former Republican governor, addressed the crowd, but reception was poor. The group, gathered at the University of Virginia’s College at Wise, heard some of Kaine’s message, including a promise to return to Wise County Sunday evening. (link)
Come to think of it though, I guess we should be mighty appreciative of his having provided us with that phone call. I can only imagine the empathy that must have come through to the six people gathered in Wise to hear his impassioned speech regarding the fact that Southwest Virginia has, for far too long, been ignored and that he certainly isn't going to take us for granted and will climb the highest mountain, swim the deepest sea ...
Oh, never mind.
