Jim Webb's Populism Shaking Things Up....

The June 19 issue of the American Conservative magazine has an interesting article by Jim Antle about the Virginia Senate race. Check out A New Democrat: Jim Webb’s populist Senate campaign shakes up Virginia’s political establishment

Interesting. A conservative rag, in June 2006, that isn't bashing Webb.

In fact I would say that seemed to pretty well sum up the situation of this race.

Well, keep in mind that Antle and the other writers at TAC write very, very harshly about Bush.

These are the "old line conservatives" -- not the neo-cons. And, they don't like offshore outsourcing, "free trade", imperial wars (Iraq) or a misdirected "war on terror". Seems to me that they wouldn't like Allen's views too well either since they track closely with Bush.

As I posted over at RK, maybe the Allen supporters ought to worry about defections to Jim Webb...
