"Pitiful" Fundraising OR Integrity?

Allen supporters like spreading the news that the Webb campaign's fundraising is "pitiful." Given the fact that George Allen has had years to create a political warchest and the corporate lobbyists love how he votes...how could Webb have equal funds at this point?

I don't see Webb's fundraising as "pitiful." The vast amounts of money that Allen is raising comes from the special interest corporate sector that is controlling our media and our government.

I'm voting for a Senator who will represent MY interests not the "elite" interests of a powerful minority. I prefer a Senator who has not sold out to the special interests of corporations that view me as a consumer (to profit from) not a citizen.

Um. . . . yeah

Actually, this was in the Virginia Pilot yesterday:

Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, called Webb’s fundraising “pitiful,”
