  • What: Virginia Beach Democratic Committee Third Thursday Dinner

  • When: February 17th, 6:00 PM

  • Where: Kelly's Hilltop Tavern, 1936 Laskin Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23454 (map), in the nonsmoking section.

Show up, order off the menu (separate checks), socialize, and talk politics--or whatever else interests you.

I have attended several of these.  They tend to be smaller gatherings, highly informal, and a lot of fun.  Don't know whether I'll make it this week, though--a cold seems to have caught me.

One of the distinguishing characteristics of Republicans is their willingness to say whatever seems advantageous at the moment, regardless of the facts and regardless of what they said yesterday or might say tomorrow, because it could help them get what they want! right! now!

You might call it the of-course-I'll-respect-you-in-the-morning style of campaigning.  

Steve Benen looks at Mike Huckabee's complaint about Jack Conway's ad in Kentucky:

Yes, Mike Huckabee said, in print, that he disapproves of those who try to "show-off and parade" their faith "for the purpose of getting a vote."

And we know what comes after of-course-I'll-respect-you-in-the-morning . . . .

Voting Is Not a Right. It Is a Duty.

You may tell yourself, "No one will vote for such a dummy."  

Therefore you sit there, eat Cheetos healthful whole grain snacks with celery stalks on the side, and watch YouTube educational documentaries.

Vote or be ruled by dummies.

Virginia AG Cuccinelli’s War on Science, Episode II

0
In our previous episode, a retired state judge called on to rule on the case bounced it into the next county.

In episode two:

Cuccinelli has appealed that ruling to the state Supreme Court.

The current filing from Cuccinelli was issued Sept. 29 in conjunction with the continuing probe. It is more narrowly crafted to target one state grant - a $214,700 award - in which Mann had a role.

I am beginning to believe that Republicans oppose science because knowledge is inimical to their mythology.  

Once you know the sun is umpty-ump miles away, you can no longer believe in Icarus.  

They want to keep hold on to their Icarus.

I'm trying to follow the city council election in Virginia Beach.  

It's quite a challenge:  There are 14 candidates.  Seven candidates are vying for two at-large seats.  Four of the seven geographical districts are in play, with three of them contested. City council is by law non-partisan, so party affiliation is not mentioned, which doesn't help those who think that a candidate's party affiliation communicates something, however imperfectly, about a candidate.

I have found out that I'm not the only person having trouble co-ordinating names with faces and with positions.  I been a Virginia Beach resident for a little under a year, but even long-time residents can't keep the field straight in their heads.

So I made myself a program listing the candidates for both the city council and the school board.  It turned out to be pretty useful for making notes at last night's candidate forum.

Oh my goodness.

I guess this is what Castle gets for giving up any principles he may have had at one time.  

Crazy beats wishy-washy.
