    Delegate Brink is quoted as saying that “All you need to do is turn on your TV, open any national newspaper or go to YouTube, and it’s impossible to escape the conclusions that we’ve allowed ourselves to be portrayed as a bunch of ignorant, backward-looking buffoons.” The sad reality is that the YouTube videos of the likes of Dave Albo, Bob Marshall, and other VA GOP delegates have enabled them to expose themselves as the buffoons they really are. No editorial interventions or “portrayals” were needed.

    Gov. Bob’s (aka Gov. Bubba) heavily armed reaction to the peaceful reminds me of similar reactions by Lester Maddox decades ago against other peaceful demonstrators. The GOP is determined to drag VA backwards.
