After running about a dozen stories in print and more than two dozen items online about Bob McDonnell's 20-year-old socially conservative graduate thesis, the Washington Post has decided to focus like a laser in the sixth paragraph of this blog post by Anita Kumar on Creigh Deeds's opposition to gay rights. The Post reporter writes:

Those on the right are fighting back against a barrage of negative McDonnell coverage by circulating a 10-year-old Deeds campaign mailer on gays and lesbians in which he says "I don't believe in special rights for anyone."

Maybe tomorrow the revelation that Deeds's campaign manager flatly said that "Mr. Deeds does not support gay rights" will erupt in another Washington Post blog post?
