Virginia Democrat Indicted on Pornography, Underage Sex Charges

You remember Virginia state legislator Joe Morrissey: Last year it was learned the 56-year-old Democrat delegate was under investigation in relation to a sleepover with underage girl. That was 10 months ago. Now a grand jury has finally indicted him: HENRICO — A special grand jury today issued five indictments against Del. Joseph D. Morrissey, […]

Virginia Shocker: Cantor Canned

by Smitty Virginia is for lovers of elections and political gymnastics. Since its 2009 inception, the Tea Party had run an insurgency to force conventions for state-wide elections, which resulted in (what I thought) was a dynamite slate for last November’s elections: Cuccinelli/Jackson/Obenshain. Alas, the GOP elite didn’t seem to care much about this off-year […]

Virginia GOP Pulls a Fast One

A Democrat member of the Virginia state Senate has announced he will resign, a move that will likely prevent newly elected Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe from imposing ObamaCare on the state — and this appears to have been arranged by Virginia Republicans in a thoroughly Machiavellian maneuver that will give GOP control of the state Senate. […]

@MiltonWolfMD Is All: “Virginia Has Three Senators”, And I’m All: “Wut?”

by Smitty I mean, I’m used to checking the back of the milk carton to discover how long it’s been since anyone sighted Kane or Warner. Imagine my shock to see this tweet: Pat Roberts (R-VA) Wants 6 More Years in Washington to Do What Exactly? http://t.co/VaNy5xvh6S #47years — Dr. Milton Wolf (@miltonwolfmd) March 25, […]

Virginia’s Overarching Shame Revealed: Dave Matthews #1?

by Smitty According to this Time article, Dave Matthews is Virginia’s favorite musician. By that map, I need to move to Delaware, which fancies Rush, no doubt as an act of Joe Biden compensation. In fairness to Matthews, he’s funny. Here he is impersonating Ozzy Ozbourne, while Hader impersonates him. Dave Matthews as Ozzy Osbourne […]

Warner’s Political Scalp Won’t Cover Much, But VA Should Take It Anyway

by Smitty This new ad from Ed Gillespie shows he’s as serious as lung cancer about November:After five years of Obama’s running cluster-frack (you pick the issue, ObamaCare looming largest) it really is time for the voters to say ENOUGH to all of this Progressivism. A rant: The Democrats have weaponized the IRS to go […]

Ed Gillespie? A Button Marked ‘Crap’ Would Be An Improvement Over Warner

by Smitty (h/t Bearing Drift) A polished ad from the former RNC chief: While I still think Howie Lind and Shak Hill are great guys (the former, a retired squid has my nod for large, haze gray reasons) we’re talking about going after an entrenched, useless tool of an incumbent. Maybe if Governor. . .um. […]

‘Gentleman’ Jim Moran’s “Occupy NOVA” Reign Of Error Staggering To A Halt

by Smitty DLTDHYOTWO, Jim. It’s been a crummy 15 years I’ve lived in VA-8, and watched the country increasingly go down the tubes since the Democrat takeover of Congress in 2006, knowing that you’re a ringleader of the debacle.  I don’t mean crummy for me, personally: I’ve only endured one brief bout of unemployment. But, […]
