The candidate strolls through the middle class Northern Virginia neighborhood where he was raised by an Air Force officer and his “working mom”  casually chatting at the camera while his children take turns shouting “Hey, dad!”

The pictures of a clean cut, all-American family were clearly meant to be refute the candidate’s thesis-inspired Archie Bunker charicature. In fact, it wasn’t until I had watched it three times before I realized McDonnell actually mentioned any issues.
