Deeds Gives the Cav Daily a Shout-Out
This past week, all four candidates for governor gathered at the Virginia Capital Correspondents Association dinner to try their hand at comedy. The results are a bit sad, but hey, they're politicians. Based on what's in this video, the two funniest are Terry McAuliffe and, as much as it pains me to say it, Bob McDonnell. But the coolest part of the night comes in the last 15 seconds of the video, where Creigh Deeds quotes my old newspaper, The Cavalier Daily, where I wrote for two years at U.Va. Our motto was a Jefferson quote that hung on the wall outside our office: "For here we are not afraid to follow truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate any error as long as reason is left free to combat it."
