Virginia News Headlines: Saturday Morning


Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Saturday, March 30. Also, see President Obama’s weekly address, in which he offers Passover and Easter greetings to America.

*Scalia’s gay adoption claim: Even wronger than I thought (The top rated comment says it all: “I’m confused as to why anyone is surprised by this; conservatives use this linguistic sleight of hand about evolution, climate change, birth control, etc… all the time. When a conservative says there’s ‘considerable disagreement,’ what they mean is ‘I really, really, really don’t agree with the overwhelming data that exists’.” Exactly.Also, Scalia is a @#$#@$! disgrace to humanity, America, the Supreme Court, etc.)

*GOP could be own worst enemy in Senate races (“Party’s seeming advantage in 2014 could be blunted if extremely conservative nominees emerge from primaries.” And hopefully in Virginia in 2013 as well!)

*Epithets against Latinos, gays hamper Republicans’ outreach efforts (Yep, that’s Republicans for ya. The only time they change? When it adversely affects their own families, their own economic or political interests. Why? Because they don’t have any empathy.)

*The Campaign to Outlaw Abortion (“Extreme new restrictions in North Dakota and elsewhere are clearly unconstitutional.”)

*Dr. Ben Carson Fauxpologizes For Totally Not Comparing Gays With Child/Animal Rapists (This raging bigot is the “conservative” hero du jour. That really says it all about “conservatives,” I’d say.)

*Fox Interviews Man Who Showed Up At Gun Safety Rally With Loaded Assault Rifle – Doesn’t Mention Or Show Gun

*Without Medicaid Expansion, Poor Americans In The South Are Less Likely To Get Medical Care

*Democrat Eyes Cuccinelli Conflict

*Cuccinelli attacks McAuliffe on out-of-state car business while both attend conference in Charlottesville (So…the leading Virginia Republican now thinks it’s bad to be an entrepreneur? Got it.)

*Virginia jobless rate steady at 5.6 percent in February

*Abortion-rights advocates deliver 3,600 comments on Va. rules

*Lacey Putney’s retirement draws 2 GOP contenders for delegate post

*VDOT hopes resurfacing provides solution for Interstates 64, 264

*2013 Washington Nationals preview: Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper are ready to go the distance for a World Series contender

*D.C. area forecast: Saturday nicer than Sunday, but mild air wins through Monday

  • Jim Carrey nails it yet again, following his spot-on demolition of Charlton Heston, the NRA, gun nuts, etc. Jim Carrey’s on a roll!

    Since I released my “Cold Dead Hand” video on Funny or Die this week, I have watched Fux News rant, rave, bare its fangs and viciously slander me because of my stand against large magazines and assault rifles. I would take them to task legally if I felt they were worth my time or that anyone with a brain in their head could actually fall for such irresponsible buffoonery. That would gain them far too much attention which is all they really care about.

    I’ll just say this: in my opinion Fux News is a last resort for kinda-sorta-almost-journalists whose options have been severely limited by their extreme and intolerant views; a media colostomy bag that has begun to burst at the seams and should be emptied before it becomes a public health issue.

    I sincerely believe that in time, good people will lose patience with the petty and poisonous behavior of these bullies and Fux News will be remembered as nothing more than a giant culture fart that no amount of Garlique could cure.

    I wish them all the luck that accompanies such malevolence.

  • Again, THIS bigoted jerk is the new conservative hero?!? That says it all.
