Iâ€™m the first to admit that voting in todayâ€™s election has me feeling like a Christian Scientist with appendicitis.
Our Democratic candidate for governor, Tim Kaine, is a lightweight but Republican Jerry Kilgore is a pit viper whose negative, lies-filled campaign pushed mud-slinging to new lows in Virginia politics.
The 24 years I spent in Washington and 40-plus years covering politics leaves me with an outright hatred of negative campaigns and no side in this yearâ€™s race has taken the high road.
So I will do what I usually do on Election Day â€“ go into the polling booth and vote for the candidates that I find least offensive.
Hell of a way to decide who represents us in government.
