Last night, JR blogged about the hardline Democrat majority’s approach to passing their legislation: shutting the minority out the process appears to be the name of the game. Politics is a rough sport, we all know that. But, a sport is supposed to be, well, sportsmanlike – and all the more so when the arena […]
If you have been watching the news lately, chances are you have seen a story about Governor Sarah Palin. First, she was drawing a crowd of 20,000 people in Auburn, New York, followed by several thousand on Long Island. Then there were those cruel jokes by David Letterman that served to distract people from the […]

It’s truly funny. Now that Democrats have the White House, the House and the Senate, suddenly any criticism of Democrats is called hateful, angry, extreme and evil. Give me a break! For eight years, I’ve heard the most hateful attacks on George W. Bush and the Republicans from “Bush wasn’t elected, he was selected” to […]
Waldo and I discuss on “Weekend Virginia” the comments Mark Warner made against the Republican ticket a few days ago which effectively called them obstructionists to the Warner tax hike. We also discuss the future debate and how the economy and political philosophies fit in the context of that debate.
