• Virginian-Pilot endorsements – HooeyPolitics

    “First of all, we’re not telling you how to vote.” (Virginian-Pilot) That’s what Editorial chief Don Luzzatto wrote Friday about the upcoming Virginian-Pilot endorsements. Haw Haw Haw! A few examples of why that’s hooey. “Disappointment in both Miller’s past and in Giffin’s potential makes it hard for us to summon the conviction necessary to make […]

  • White House Concedes for Deeds 11 Days Before ElectionPolitics

    Congratulations to the Washington Post for winning the caption contest with “HE DID IT!!”; close runner-up to J.R. with “You think HE can pull MY numbers?!” Wow. That’s really all I can say after the Democratic White House proceeded to throw Creigh Deeds directly under the bus today. These breakdowns from today’s articles really tell […]

  • Enthusiasm Gap in Full Effect on ThursdayPolitics

    On Thursday, the Virginia Victory Operations reportedly made over 66,000 (not a typo) phone calls and voter contacts today. Alone.

  • Joe Bouchard – When in a hole, keep diggingPolitics

    Del. Joe Bouchard, obviously desperate to keep his seat, ran one of the most despicable ads in Virginia political history. One account of the ad said: When one does more research, one finds that this particular hospital has a neonatal intensive care unit, which serves a higher percentage of sick newborns than other facilities. That […]

  • A Word on PollsPolitics

    Virginia Republicans are getting pretty jazzed-up this week over several polls showing Bob McDonnell expanding his lead over Creigh Deeds in the race for Governor. While this enthusiasm is great to see after a string of dispiriting losses for the GOP, I just want to remind my fellow Republicans to keep these numbers in context […]

  • Nude AwakeningCatch-All

    This morning in Springfield, VA, a woman was walking her son to school when she saw a naked man in his garage and the man was later arrested by 5 officers. I wonder if the naked person was a good looking woman if she would have been arrested. And should this really be a criminal […]

  • Governor’s Debate RecapPolitics

    At last night’s Governor’s debate in Roanoke, it was clear who had a more concrete vision and who was floundering. Bob McDonnell was stellar throughout the debate, as he laid out his plans for improving the economy, transportation, education, and budget. Meanwhile, Creigh Deeds clearly showed that he was struggling with laying out the case […]
