The only thing more hypocritical than Terry McAuliffe? The Lefties now supporting him.
There’s some raised eyebrows at some of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s donors: specifically the detail that 78% of his funding in the last quarter came from out-of-state donors. Looking at the donor list, I note that some of the folks involve include: Terry’s father-in-law Richard Swann, who is probably best known for being president, back in the day, of the infamously failed American Pioneer | Read More »

Ken Cuccinelli corybookers in Virginia.
Anyway, Virginia AG (who happens to be also running for Governor) Ken Cuccinelli was driving along yesterday when… Cuccinelli was on his way back to Richmond on Friday after a meeting of his Human Trafficking Task Force in Staunton when he and his driver Cory Chenard noticed a semi-truck with a flatbed trailer carrying a heavy load in front of them an awful smelling smoke | Read More »
TAKE THAT GUN AWAY from Joe Morrissey (D, Virginia House of Delegates).
Background: the aforementioned idjit decided to wave around an “AK-47-style rifle” on the floor of the Virginia House of Delegates as part of a fairly bizarre gun-grabbing stunt. Now, Morrissey claimed that the gun was unloaded, but then… “Del. Todd Gilbert, R-Woodstock, interrupted Morrissey’s speech to ask him to take his finger out of the trigger guard…” …Joe Morrissey is apparently not exactly qualified to | Read More »
Why Jim Moran’s son Patrick will get away with domestic abuse.
Consider the story of Jim and Patrick Moran… and let us not make this a Democratic/Republican thing. Instead, let us go foreign: imagine that a report had come out that the son of an Australian* politician had been caught viciously beating his girlfriend in a drunken rage. The incident was witnessed by police, who made an arrest (getting assaulted themselves in the process); the victim | Read More »
I am Thankful for John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy
Not quite two weeks removed from Thanksgiving, it is worth giving thanks to John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy. I really am thankful for them. Yesterday the three of them purged fiscal conservatives from committees as punishment for being authentically fiscal conservatives. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina was put on the Financial Services Committee to show fiscal conservatism had nothing to do with removing | Read More »

However, when it is time to hold people from different racial backgrounds to an equivalent standard of competence, any sense of racial equality goes bye-bye.

As part of Virginia’s waiver to opt out of mandates set out in the No Child Left Behind law, the state has created a controversial new set of education goals that are higher for white and Asian kids than for blacks, Latinos and students with disabilities. Here’s what the Virginia state board of education actually did. It looked at students’ test scores in reading and math and then proposed new passing rates. In math it set an acceptable passing rate at 82 percent for Asian students, 68 percent for whites, 52 percent for Latinos, 45 percent for blacks and 33 percent for kids with disabilities.

[UPDATE: Nope, he's still for Obama.] Former Democratic VA Governor Doug Wilder Endorses Romney in everything but Name
UPDATE: Well, apparently, he went on Neil Cavuto’s show and announced he’s still voting for Obama. While that is depressing, this is still the most tepid endorsement of the President I’ve seen in a while. For most of the last few months, former Democratic Virginia Governor Douglas Wilder, the first black governor elected anywhere in the United States since the end of Reconstruction, has been | Read More »
A Call to Our Brothers and Sisters in Coal Country
Americans often exude an apathetic attitude regarding the importance of elections. Many people feel as if their lives will be the same the day after the elections, irrespective of the outcome. As such, they are not enthusiastic about voting. Well, in this case, if Obama is reelected, our country will never again resemble the Constitutional Republic that it once was and should continue to be. | Read More »
Do you want to repeal Obamacare?
Claire McCaskill. Bob Casey Jr. Sherrod Brown. Bill Nelson. Tammy Baldwin. Tim Kaine. These Senators and Senate candidates all support or even voted for Obamacare. Importantly, they all have Republican opponents who have a chance to win, thanks in part to the growing support for Mitt Romney in their swing states.
If we want to defeat Obamacare, it is critical that we elect Republicans to as many Senate seats as we can. The sad fact is that we can’t just get 50 and hope to win on a reconciliation tiebreak vote cast by Paul Ryan. You never know if the Democrats might find an anti-TEA party Republican who oppose the will of the voters and come to the other side. So we need to elect as many Republicans as we can.
That means no Republican left behind. George Allen, Tommy Thompson, Connie Mack, Josh Mandel, Tom Smith, and yes, Todd Akin are six key anti-Obamacare votes we need to elect, along with of course Mitt Romney.
We can only do this if we knock on doors, contact voters, and get out the vote for this important election. Please help.

Big Bird vs. Coal
“If you don’t have a record to run on… you make a big election about small things.” – Barack Obama, 2008. In 2008, Barack Obama made the above comment. In 2012, he is proving it to be true, attempting to refocus this year’s presidential election on the weighty topic of… Big Bird. But while Obama attempts to eke out a win by spotlighting a muppet, | Read More »

How did the party let itself get hijacked by abortion warriors?
Hold your fire. Did you think I was talking about Republicans? Oh, no. I’m talking about the Democrats. That party has been hijacked by the radical feminist fringe. In a way that mimics the imagined trend of the Tea party, the feminists are pushing losing candidates on the Democrats, and forcing them to pick up losing issues in the elections.
This goes from Barack Obama on down. In a jobs election, he’s talking abortion.
