Rove’s at it again.

To absolutely no one’s surprise, the Karl Rove-backed Crossroads GPS is up with another round of nasty attacks ads against former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine.

Frankly, it reeks a little of desperation. Every time Kaine’s opponent, former Senator and three-time Dirty Dozen member George Allen, tries – and fails – to break through and gain the upper hand in the Virginia race, good old Karl Rove is there to save the day.

But here’s why this time it’s different. This time Karl Rove is nervous. He’s probably starting to doubt whether Allen can really win this race. We’re just seven weeks out from Election Day and George Allen still can’t move the numbers – the race is still a dead heat. Even with Allen's loathsome attacks against Tim Kaine, and even with help from his Big Oil buddies, Allen still can’t break through with Virginia voters.

Tim Kaine is ready to fight for a clean energy future, so let’s show him that LCV supporters are ready to fight for him all the way to Election Day. We don’t need to raise millions to put him over the top, we just need to raise enough to help him run a strong grassroots campaign in these final weeks. Let’s get him $24,000 in the next 24 hours. Will you chip in?

Donate to Tim Kaine via LCV Action Fund’s GiveGreen. This is one of the most important – and contentious – races in the country. Let’s show Tim we can put him over the top.

Allen is getting so desperate that he recently lashed out at LCV – calling us “radical friends" of Tim Kaine. Why? I guess it’s because we support such “radical” ideas as protecting the air we breathe, investing in clean energy and holding polluters accountable. Yeah, I know – crazy, radical stuff.

I don’t know about you, but we’re all proud to be “radical friends” of Tim Kaine here at LCV. That’s because Kaine is committed to fighting for clean energy policies and holding polluters accountable.

So far, LCV supporters have raised more than $150,000 for Tim Kaine. With your help, we can reach $175,000 in the next 24 hours. If LCV members join together and support environmental leaders like Tim Kaine, we’ll win in 2012. I hope you’ll make a contribution to Tim Kaine for Senate right now.

Thank you for supporting Tim Kaine and our GiveGreen candidates.

Tim kaine may not have been a great DNC chairman but he was a great governor and he will make an excellent Senator.  Plus lets not forget the douche bag he's going up against:

Let's help Tim Kaine go on to victory over George Allen, or as Jon Stewart calls him, "Macaca Goldstein".  Here's Kaine's ActBlue page:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
