P.S. Oh, and in Teapublican freak show news, Mr. “9-9-9” endorsed Newton Leroy “Newt” Gingrich for president. Unfortunately for Newton, it may be too little, too late, as he trails Willard “Mitt the Ripper” Romney by 8 points (or maybe it’s 9? 9? 9? Heh.).

  • Any further questions?

    “Guns, Gays, and God” I think most Dems predicted that once the Virginia legislative process was owned by the R’s this would happen. Along with some very bad economic legislation around. In spite of so many R leaders saying they would stay on the minimalist, spare of change, government they ran on.

    Of note: although I moved from Virginia to Maryland last year, I am spending a lot of time (and economic support) in Virginia, specifically the Yorktown area, so I feel I should toss in a few comments every now and then.
