Leftists Turn Schools into Thug Sanctuaries

Virginia leftists have a novel approach to ending the school­­–to–prison pipeline. They intend to eliminate the transportation component by leaving potential inmates inside the school. As part of the Stop Snitchin’ initiative, schools won’t be required to report many criminal offenses to the police. It will be mum’s the word as far as the outside world is concerned. School officials ...

Richmond Proves the Left Hates You and Your Gun

Virginia’s 2nd Amendment rally was a huge disappointment for Big Nanny Mike Bloomberg, Gov. Ralph Northam and gun–grabbing busybodies across the nation. The event failed to produce the Reichstag Fire the left was secretly hoping would occur. Over 22,000 armed 2nd Amendment supporters gathered in the state capital with loaded firearms and there wasn’t even a single accidental discharge. Talk ...

Virginia Is a Preview of What Gun–grabbers Would Do Nationally

A surprising development is occurring among staunch members of the left at the Washington Post and elsewhere. These woke scolds have come out strongly against sanctuary cities and counties. Before it was either silence or tacit approval for government sheltering a population that was “in the shadows,” which makes sense when you remember they’re running from the law. Sanctuary jurisdictions ...

Virginia’s Blackface Governor Left Red-faced

Democrats and gun control is a case of Lucy holding and simultaneously trying to kick her own football. For the true believers in Virginia, the next off–year election is always going to be the one that hinges on gun control and returns Democrats to a level of power they haven’t enjoyed since the issue of the day was finally allowing ...

Off–Year Election Prospects Grim for Conservatives

In 2009 gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia provided a morale boost for conservatives still smarting from the Obama victory. Chris Christie won in New Jersey and Bob McDonnell won in Virginia. The chance for morale boosting repeat this year is very small. In New Jersey we’ve discovered Christie is now Obama’s newest BFF and is showing all the ...

Consultants Who Think They Are Kingmakers

A Virginia consultant no voter ever heard of endorses a candidate for governor nobody really likes and somehow it’s on the front page of the Washington Post’s Metro section. It reminds me of what Democrats formerly called the ‘Shrum Primary.’  That was the jockeying Democrat presidential candidates went through to try and persuade Bob Shrum to join their campaign as ...

Time for Virginia’s GOP Governor to Resign

Virginia Gov. Bob ‘I want my Boost for breakfast’ McDonnell’s slide down the slope to complete disgrace continues. When we last wrote about Gov. Boost in mid–June, he was under fire for billing Virginia taxpayers for body wash, sunscreen, dog vitamins, colon blow, breakfast Boost, dry cleaning, shoe repairs and dog food — all because it’s really tough to make ...

There’s No Such Thing as a Slight Sense of Entitlement

We’ve all seen photos of Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell. Particularly last year when he was being mentioned as a possible vice presidential pick on the Romney ticket. He would be beaming, with a large, toothy smile, looking well groomed and squeaky clean. And no wonder, this wholesome image was the product of a group effort, since the governor relies on ...

What If They Held a Primary and Nobody Came?

The Washington Post finally got its primary and in typical leftist fashion, they approved of the candidate selection method that was both inefficient and cost taxpayers the most. Earlier this year the Posties criticized Republicans for using the convention method to choose their nominees — even though Lincoln was chosen by a convention and the Constitution was written at one. ...

The Interview: Terry McAuliffe & the Boston Attack

This post is intended as satire, any likeness to real or imagined people is unintended. This is a work of fiction (A source within the McAuliffe for Governor campaign leaked a copy of this transcript from an interview with a New York Times Sunday Magazine reporter. I felt I owed it to my readers to give them an advance look ...

Constituent Service Gone Wild

Football fans everywhere are indebted to Virginia Delegate Joe May (R–Leesburg) whose invention of the electronic first down marker added much needed precision to watching the game on TV. Unfortunately, May’s understanding of the free market is much less precise and is in danger of throwing taxpayers for a significant loss. According to Liz Essley in a series of stories ...

Two Wrongs ≠ A Right

It pains me to criticize Republicans acting aggressively on their own behalf, because lately it’s been rare. Sometimes it appears national GOP leadership would be content to emulate the panda and sit contentedly munching bamboo shoots in a special preserve where one is protected from predators and challengers alike. There is some indignity involved when the media pokes and prods ...

Conservatives Get Stupid, Again

What a let down. Here conservative Republicans were so close to respectability and even acceptance in polite society. In Prince William County, VA where I live, conservatives convinced themselves we’d come far from that time in the recent past when the Washington Post described evangelicals (essentially another word for conservative Republicans, since there is considerable overlap among the two demographic ...
