Roanoke Times says Boucher betraying SW Virginians' interests

Today's Roanoke Times editorial ("The Oligarchy Restoration Act of 2005")says that "In the end, only one argument for repeal of the federal estate tax remains standing once the facts are known... It's just not fair. After a long, often misleading repeal campaign, polls indicate most Americans accept that simple appeal to fairness. [Wednesday's vote to kill the tax] included regrettable support from Democrats such as 9th District Rep. Rick Boucher. Boucher and others may have thought they were protecting their constituents' best interests. They were not."

Uh oh. A harbinger of future editorials about Boucher and coal country? Watch out for the moonbats turning on you, Rick.
