Your recent editorial on the Virginia governor's race continued The Sun's quest to be the pay version of the Daily Kos ("An election with message," Nov. 6).
Here are some other "messages" you might have mentioned regarding the Virginia election:
1. Democrat Terry McAuliffe outspent Republican Ken Cuccinelli by $34 million to $20 million.
2. Mr. Cuccinelli only lost by a few points, down from 15 points in the polls a few weeks earlier — even after a government shutdown that was blamed on the GOP. The reason is that Obamacare (which The Sun supports and defends) is now a toxic political issue.
3 An Obama bundler financed the PAC that enabled the "libertarian" candidate to get on the ballot. Without that candidate, Mr. Cuccinelli would have won by a few points. Can you imagine if the Koch Brothers had financed a third-party candidate that cost the Democrats the election? You might have mentioned it.
