Today I voted for Biden and Harris in VA

which opened early in-person voting today. Unlike previous years, you do NOT have to fill out a form and give an excuse of why you cannot vote on election day. I was in Arlington County (which is heavily Dem —  Biden will easily carry more than 70% of the vote).  Rather than having to go…

LOL. Loudoun County (Va.) Supervisor Flips Off Donald Trump.

Looks like the lady that flipped off Trump's motorcade and lost her job as a result is about to get a new one, as the Loudoun County Supervisor representing….wait for it….the district that's home to Trump's golf course. #VAelections — Mike Hettinger (@Hettinger_Tech) November 6, 2019 there is a god! and she has a sense…

Finally, a “Dr Feelgood” political story out of Virginia!

I swear to God, I’d rather be lucky than good. Usually, I have to kick and scratch, fight and scream, to find something interesting to write to you guys about. But every once in a while, an egg comes crashing through the windshield and lands right in your lap, as if a golden goose were…

Taking the “high road” is fine, but…

just remember one thing, the higher the road, the steeper the drop off at the edge of the shoulder. Everybody agrees, believing in God is a perfectly acceptable personal choice, but when do evangelicals become an insufferable pain in the ass? When they pull that “holier than thou” crap. Mike Pence is a perfect example,…

DFA Keeps Up The Call For Gov. Ralph Northam's (D. VA) Resignation

Received this e-mail today from Democracy for America: Ralph Northam has to go. Will you sign our emergency petition calling on him to step down immediately? On Friday, the Governor of Virginia publicly confirmed that he appeared in a racist photo on his individual page in his 1984 medical school yearbook. In 2017, we expressed profound concern…

A Democratic trifecta in Virginia for 2019?? You've come a long way, baby.

The throwback cheesy ads for Virginia Slims had a point. I grew up in the Tidewater area 40 years ago. Race mixing was seriously looked down upon, the confederate flag was everywhere, and we didn’t celebrate Martin Luther King Day—it was officially called “Lee-Jackson-King” Day.  And the kids—we were brutal. The worst insult in the…
