Thanks to Tom Whipple for the Thursday "Clips."

1. HANGER SKEPTICAL ABOUT STATE TRANSPORTATION PLAN
2. CANDIDATES GEAR UP FOR GENERAL ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS
11. WARNER, WEBB VOTE AGAINST OFFSHORE ENERGY BILL DEFEATED IN SENATE
13. WARNER "DISSAPPOINTED, BUT SURE AS HECK NOT DISCOURAGED"

33. VIRGINIA LOTTERY ON PACE FOR RECORD SALES

UPDATE: Also, I strongly agree with this morning's Washington Post editorial, "Fairfax County needs to right the wrongs against Sean Lanigan." As the Post writes, "We understand the school system has obligations, which it clearly takes seriously, to protect its students. Sometimes, though, mistakes are made, and when they are - as clearly happened in Mr. Lanigan's case - it's best to admit them and try to make things right. That Fairfax officials have failed to do so is more than a mistake; it's wrong."

UPDATE: Also, Jim Webb and Mark Warner both voted yesterday to close Big Oil tax loopholes. The measure received 52 votes, but unfortunately the Republicans went to the mat for their Big Oil buddies and required 60 votes to pass. As this article explains, "U.S. Senators that blocked a vote on legislation to end taxpayer subsidies to oil companies have received five times more in campaign contributions from oil and gas interests than those who voted to begin debate, according to Oil Change International and Public Campaign Action Fund analysis of data from the Center for Responsive Politics." So there you have it; with Republicans, it's all about following the Big Oil money, as opposed to reducing the budget deficit or any other considerations. End of story.
