• Of Deeds and DesperationCatch-All

    Recently, the Deeds campaign and the Democratic attack machine have tried to drive a wedge between Bob McDonnell and the people of Virginia.

  • Attack McDonnell about “covenant Marriage”???Politics

    Better attack Tim Kaine, too. “Lt. Gov. Tim Kaine announced yesterday a package of family-friendly proposals that include creating a voluntary “covenant marriage” option in Virginia–an issue usually championed by conservatives.” Kaine said the bill would “let couples express their lifetime commitment in a deeper way. “Marriage is sort of the bedrock of society,” he […]

  • McDonnell’s college paper has problemsPolitics

    The most significant problem of the Democrats and the Washington Post (and my local Virginian-Pilot who simultaneously ran the Post’s drivel on the front page) is they didn’t attack McDonnell for his research skills. I don’t believe McDonnell, when referencing feminism in a paper he wrote for school, ever researched or quoted current Senator Jim […]

  • Deeds follows McDonnell’s lead again, this time on pay-cutPolitics

    I’m glad Sen. Creigh Deeds, Virginia Democratic candidate for governor, agrees so much with his Republican opponent, Bob McDonnell. After all, McDonnell’s ideas are terrific. What’s the latest? A gubernatorial pay-cut. Wednesday, McDonnell said he would cut his salary as governor. Today, Deeds said he would do the same. If Deeds agrees with McDonnell so […]
