Washington Post Not “Amused” By Keith Fimian

    Not that he was expecting it or anything, but it sure looks like Keith Fimian won’t be getting the Washington Post’s endorsement in the 11th CD congressional race. 🙂

    …Fimian used a quote from this blog in the very first radio ad of his campaign against U.S. Rep. Gerry Connolly (D).

    But when we looked a little closer, we were less amused.

    The ad works on a pig theme and accuses Connolly of going after earmarks at a time when the national debt is rising. Pretty standard political stuff.

    But then, the radio narrator tells you this: “Gerry Connolly says, quote, ‘I want to be there with all four paws and snout in the trough.’ ”

    Connolly did indeed utter that quote during a July conference call with reporters about Republicans and the stimulus package. We put the quote on this blog.

    But was he talking about himself? Nope.

    He was making a point about Republican Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.)

    So, I guess the question is, why is Keith Fimian attacking his fellow Republican, House Minority Whip Eric Cantor? Looks like Fimian’s got a bit of ‘splainin’ to do.
