Audio: Ed Gillespie Says (Diverse, Vote-Rich) Northern Virginia Is “Enemy Territory”

Gotta love this: Virginia State Sen. Mark Obenshain, a far-right extremist whose signature legislation was to criminalize miscarriages (not kidding, check it out!), says that Ed Gillespie has been working the Metro stations in northern Virginia, and Gillespie’s response is – again, not making this shit up – “enemy territory, but working it.” I don’t know about you, but I immediately had a flashback to the fall of 2008, when John McCain’s brother called Northern Virginia “Communist Country.” What is it with Republicans and diverse, vibrant, economically successful Northern Virginia anyway? Think about it — perhaps it’s the “diverse” part, perhaps combined with the fact that they keep getting their butts kicked in Northern Virginia?
