Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Tuesday, August 29.

  • Superb comment in the Michael Gerson op-ed:

    All those happy years of lies, mocking and laughing at and demonizing blacks and Democrats for telling you the truth about your country, and yourself —

    The chickens have come home to roost. We TOLD you Trump was racist. We TOLD you he was a monster. We TOLD you the Republican party, beginning with Nixon’s Southern Strategy and winding through Reagan’s and the Bushes’ dog whistles, was nothing but a clearinghouse and megaphone for the very worst instincts of the American people.

      As someone posted yesterday, the three “g” crowd gave us Trump and a large number of brain dead republican politicians and they are not going to change.

  • Quizzical

    With these “rain bomb” storms, massive flooding can occur anywhere. So, why don’t we all buy flood insurance?

    • Quizzical

      Someone ought to make a list of this country’s apparently unsolvable problems, and see what they all have in common. Climate change. Health care insurance. Flood insurance. Safe storage of spent nuclear fuel. Never ending wars.

  • This should be the response of any Democrat asked to go on right-wing radio or TV – perfect!


  • Kenny Allen Boddye
