McAuliffe Destroys A Forest

Just because you have money doesn't mean you have to waste it. And just because you're determined to spend it doesn't mean you have to destroy the planet in the process.

At Wednesday's "Shad-Planking" down in Wakefield, Virginia, Terry McAuliffe's campaign reportedly set out more than 25,000 signs on the road into the event. It's shame how many trees had to die for this gaudy display of excess at a time of economic distress.

McAuliffe's campaign slogan: "New Energy, New Jobs, Vote Terry." Well yeah. We can power the state burning the damn signs; and employ the unemployed putting them up and taking them down.

In our opinion, the "winner" at the shad planking was Creigh Deeds, who spent his time an a multi-town tour of southwestern Virginia, instead of drinking beer with an insular group of political junkies who were only there to impress each other.
