“The Perriello Way…” to lose by four.

    I like to think of articles like these (via RCP) as being written at darkening twilight.  The author is sitting at his or her table, favorite bottle of wine to hand, pausing from writing only to swig from the bottle, or to sadly watch out the window at the valley below. Watching and waiting for the first flickering signs of the torch-bearing Mob. Of all | Read More »

    Fighting it out in the VA.-05

      For the last month or so I have been sacrificing my weekends by assisting Robert Hurt’s campaign here in Albemarle County.  How much time? I finally dragged out my lawnmower and cut my yard. Granted, it has been dry lately, but in the backyard the dogs would be looking at me askance when i would throw a ball for them, only to have said | Read More »

    Hurt Vs. Periello in VA-05

    Robert Hurt is running against Tom Perriello in Va-05 district. As a refresher, Tom beat out Virgil Goode in 2008 with a margin of victory of only 727 votes.  VA-05 went for McCain in 2008 by 7512 votes.  I have raised up off my couch, got away from the keyboard, and have been helping out in the local county Republican office for the last 3 weeks.

    The DCCC’s Super-Genius November Strategy.

    In the process of trying to convince people that Tom Perriello might possibly have a chance at keeping his seat in Virginia’s Fifth District (given Perriello’s bad habit of voting as directed by his party’s liberal leadership) against Robert Hurt, the Washington Post tried to trot out this particular line of nonse… ah, conventional wisdom: Though polls suggest that Republicans are by far the more | Read More »

    Three Congressional Seats of interest.

    Just a quick survey: CA-10 (D+11): David Harmer isn’t quitting this particular special election, and he’s having a bit of fun with the… well, I don’t know what John Garamandi was trying to do here: …but I hope that he does it again. A lot. FL-08 (R+2): Alan Grayson opened his mouth again; apparently he’s under the impression that there are no such things as | Read More »
