• Shouldn’t Tommy Norment be more concerned about his own driving record?Policy

    Senator Tommy Norment patroned SB 517 prohibiting wireless communications (that’s your cell phone) while driving unless in hands-free mode. This Nanny Statist bill passed the State Senate on Monday 25-15. Interesting that Norment would sponsor such a safety bill given the history of his own DUI in 2001. Still, I suppose the logic could be […]

  • Fimian is also an NRCC “contender”Politics

    Keith Fimian, who is competing for the GOP nomination against Pat Herrity in the 11th Congressional District, just advanced to the “Contender” category for the NRCC’s “Young Guns” program. Just like Scott Rigell in the 2nd, Fimian has met all the benchmarks required by the NRCC to move a step closer to receiving aid and […]

  • What Palin’s Notes Really SaidCatch-AllPolitics

    Horror of horrors, Sarah Palin actually had to use notes to speak to the Tea Party Convention Saturday night. Nevermind that she crafted an entire presentation from a few scribbled notes on her hand, it’s being compared to He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Unscripted’s dependence on his teleprompter. But, don’t mock Sarah’s important message. Bearing Drift has the scoop on […]

  • (Updated with NRCC/WSJ info) Taylor explains “endorsements”; Rigell outraises everyone; Loyola’s wife has a baby; Golden submits a joint resolutionPolitics

    Some rumors have been circulating to me via email about Scott Taylor’s endorsements from Rep. Duncan Hunter and Virginia Beach School Board Chairman Dan Edwards…rumors to the effect that they never were. Regarding the Hunter endorsement, the Taylor campaign insists that it is legit, and that Hunter has both authorized a statement of support and […]

  • Rest Areas And PotholesPolicy

    The two are a lot more related than you’d think. One of Governor Bob McDonnell’s first acts upon taking office was to have VDOT begin the process of reopening Virginia’s rest areas that had been shuttered due to budget cuts: Under the plan approved today, the Virginia Department of Transportation will use $3 million from […]

  • Best Superbowl CommercialPolicy

    a bunch of good ones this year. I love the E-Trade ones with the babies talking and of course the beer ones are always funny. Personally didn’t think the Tebow ad was all that controversial. anyway, I think this year the best commercial goes to Defeat the Debt. Debt Stinks!

  • Saints win!Catch-All

    There are no reports of violence or looting, yet, from New Orleans after their huge Super Bowl victory over the Indianapolis Colts, but, if it should happen, I am sure it will all be former Pres. George W. Bush’s fault…after all, it was after Katrina, right? Yet, Obama picked the Colts. (PS As a Detroit […]

  • Interstate InsurancePolicy

    Given the recent surge by the GOP derailing the healthcare bill (temporarily) to the point even Obama is seeking advice at Republican Retreats, I think this is an opportune time for the GOP to finally take the lead on the issue. One idea Republicans have touted but have done nothing about is allowing the purchase […]

  • Virginian-Pilot wrong on race againPolitics

    “But since John L. Perry’s historic win, Virginia Beach voters have elected only one other black person to the City Council.” (Virginian-Pilot) Wrong!!!!!! What the sentence should read is..”only one other black person has won an election to VB City Council.” It’s not the voters’ fault that they aren’t as racist as those who think […]

  • Palin speaks to the Tea Party in Nashville

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin spoke to the National Tea Party convention in Nashville, Tenn. yesterday. In her speech, she was very critical of the administration, delivered some good one-liners, and praised grassroots conservatism. The media today will probably pick up on her phrase at the beginning of the speech that the Tea Party is […]
