Did Tim Kaine just lose the election?PoliticsVirginia

The Governor who couldn’t stop himself from proposing tax hikes on Virginians says during the Fairfax debate with George Allen that he’s open to a minimum federal income tax on everyone:

He just can’t help himself. Priceless.

Update

Kaine may have just been taking a page from the Creigh Deeds playbook. Remember this moment from 2009?

As Dave Weigel noted at Slate regarding Kaine’s tax comment:

One of the most obvious unforced errors I’ve ever seen.

Or at least it is since Creigh Deeds scuttled his gubernatorial campaign in 2009.

Look for Kaine’s people to spin faster than tops on this one.
