All the lefty bloggers are still fervent supporters of Tim Kaine today after he's offered up a massive tax increase, after he's vetoed two Second Amendment-related bills, after his budget proposal set a record for profligate spending, and now that he has reverted to his anti-death penalty ways. A principled person might have a bit of a problem with all that but they feel only love.
Here, by the way, is the latest subterfuge exposed:
Kaine criticized on postponementThere are bloggers out there who supported Kaine when he, well, said he'd try to be more like a Republican. They'll extol his virtues still, now that he is proving himself to be just the opposite.

Skeptics of Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine's vow to uphold death sentences despite his opposition to the death penalty resurfaced this week after the Democrat postponed the execution of a convicted triple killer Percy Levar Walton.
"It's pretty predictable to me," said former Attorney General Jerry W. Kilgore, who lost to Mr. Kaine in last year's election. "I've said all along that he would be a governor who would not enforce the death penalty."
... the criticism resurfaced on Thursday. After the U.S. Supreme Court denied Walton's final appeal, and about an hour before the scheduled execution, Mr. Kaine used his executive powers to delay the execution for six months on the grounds that it is unconstitutional to execute Walton, 27, if he is "a mentally incompetent person."
