Also, see FactCheck, which basically debunks all the Republican false attacks on Tom Perriello regarding his vote for the Waxman-Markey clean energy, green jobs, and climate protection bill. According to FactCheck, it's very simple: "the NRCC is wrong."

UPDATE from the DCCC:
Roanoke TV Station Refuses to Air False NRCC Attack on Perriello

WDBJ-TV, a Roanoke television station, refused to air a false National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) attack ad on Congressman Tom Perriello (VA-05). The false NRCC ad used information about the clean energy jobs bill that the independent, nonpartisan organization called “wrong.”

“The NRCC has a track record of running ads so deceptive and misleading that local TV stations refuse to air them or have to remove from the airwaves,” said Jessica Santillo, Southern Regional Press Secretary. “Clearly, Washington Republicans realize that the truth is not on their side so they resort to deceptive and false attack ads. Virginians deserve to hear the facts about how this bill will reduce our dependence on foreign oil, not be subject to scare tactics.”
