A cheap joke

Jim Gilmore visited Kathy's Restaurant in Staunton on Saturday and spoke to 25-30 GOP loyalists, the only ones he can attract to any kind of event. Borrowing from a time honored tradition of candidates trailing in the polls, Gilmore discounted his 30 point deficit to Mark Warner by saying the only poll that counts is on November 4. The ever delusional Gilmore said, "the race is going great guns.... I feel great about this race."
A reliable source told me Gilmore tried to warm up the audience with a joke that went something like this: "Mark Warner likes his fancy dinners in expensive restaurants. I prefer cheap places."
The employees at Kathy's didn't laugh. Neither did Kathy.
