pot-kettle-blackEarlier today the DGA launched a website attacking televangelist Pat Robertson for his religious beliefs.  However, current Virginia governor Timothy Kaine opposed such attacks in his 2005 governor’s run: 
 
“…Kaine, who spoke to me by phone after attending a pair of Palm Sunday services at Baptist churches in Petersburg, Virginia, says that his own strong Catholic faith was his inspiration for entering politics, and that he believes Democrats in general have done a poor job of reaching out to religious Americans.”
 
and
 
“When Democrats kind of cavalierly attack the religious right or go after Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell, our candidates have sent the signal to a lot of religious people, ‘Well, I guess they are not interested in me.’ And I think this includes a lot of people who would fit very naturally within the Democratic Party.”
 
Maybe the DGA remember one of their ringleader’s advice before launching such a contradictory attack!!
