OH MY DEAR GOD!
I LOVE JANE HAMPSHIRE!!!

Her Smithfield Farms question is the best of the night.


Brian doesn't answer the Smithfield question...
Invokes Mark Warner, 9/11, Virginia Tech...
Doesn't admit to taking money from Smithfield.

pitiful

Wow! Moran is beyond and pitiful.
Again! He doesn't admit to his Smithfield contributions:
"If you look at Smithfield's giving, you'll find it leans towards Republicans".

"I have a history of opposing corporate interests".

Invokes Mark Warner again.

Beyond pitiful.

Oh please. Terry answered it by talking about chicken waste
He didn't talk about pig farms at all.  He used it as a launch pad to his energy plan - again.

Brian seemed to get distracted by Terry's detour and therefore felt compelled to answer the energy issue raised by Terry in answer to this question, but he did point out that he was on a panel on Virginia's homeland security (apparently in answer to the part of the question about a swine flu pandemic) and is experienced in planning to meet such challenges.  Moreover, he pointed out that offshore drilling and the Surry plant both pose dangers to the Chesapeake Bay.  Terry introduced the issue of the Chesapeake Bay in his answer, so it's fair comment.

bullsh*t
Brian circled back to again avoid admitting his huge Smithfield contributions.

So if McAuliffe had such a masterful grasp of the Smithfield
problem how come he didn't address the issue himself?  I suspect that it wasn't part of his briefing book, and considering that he does not have any actual experience of the issue, having been totally involved in national and not Virginia politics at the time of the Smithfield controversy, he's just skating by talking about something else.  His answer was: enough about Smithfield, let's talk about chicken waste...

If Moran is so much in the pockets of Smithfield, please show where Brian has done anything to frustrate promotion and enforcement of environmental regulations aimed at Smithfield and other mega farms.  He cited his work on environmental threats to Virginia and for Chesapeake Bay cleanup.  He's got a good record on this issue.  As to Terry, well, since he doesn't actually have a record there's no record of his to research on the issue.  We'll just have to take his word for it that he thinks big stinky pig farms should be regulated.  Oh wait a minute, he didn't even say that.  So ... we actually don't know what his position on the issue is.  I don't even know if he's ever actually contributed any of his vast wealth to Chesapeake Bay cleanup.  He certainly hasn't served on and committees for it, or worked on legislation to enable it.

"Huge Smithfield contributions"??
According to Lowell over at Blue Virginia Creigh received $2,250 in contributions, Brian $2,000, and Terry none.  Maybe that looks like big money to you, but personally it would go into my BFD file when you're talking about a campaign costing millions.  And if Brian's going to be bought off with $2,000 in contributions, then what about Creigh?  Please, let's try for some perspective.
