Lots of rumors swirling around this evening about a couple of heavy-hitters perhaps jumping into some key state-wide races, and I’m liking them. A lot. Ken Cuccinelli may be running for Governor in 2013, and Bob Marshall may be jumping into the 2012 US Senate race.
Nothing helps celebrate the birth of Jesus better than having a Christmas party at an abortion clinic, at least according to some Democrats.
What would a chorus sing at an event like this, anyways? ”Away in a garbage receptacle?”

If Brentsville Supervisor Wally Covington lavishing $100,000 of county taxpayer money on a private charity wasn’t bad enough, we now learn that Covington’s wife sits on the board of directors of this charity. Are you kidding me?
Delegate Bob Marshall has filed an interesting bill to ensure that unborn children are recognized as legal persons, setting off a firestorm among the left. While the intent behind this is laudable, and it’s that very idea that drives those who want to protect the interests of abortionists crazy, I don’t think anyone on the left has […]
Apparently it’s not enough that they get to grope you when they’re on duty.
Rodman, who police identified as a Transportation Security Administration employee, was supposedly wearing a uniform, displayed a badge to the victim, assaulted her, and then got away, Perok said… Rodman, 52, of 10598 Winfield Loop, was charged with aggravated sexual battery, object sexual […]
The Manassas City Schools, failing to meet “adequate yearly progress” goals for the third consecutive year, have done some thinking about how to turn things around and come up with a plan. Despite its progressive, futuristic label, “Education Forward” is essentially the same idea that drug Manassas into the bottom tier of state education performance, […]
Jackson Miller gets a party leadership spot as House Majority Whip, and the conviction I’ve held about this Delegate since 2006 starts getting proven: this is an elected official who is going somewhere. That, and Manassas has just gained some legislative clout that’s going to come in handy when Chuck Colgan finally steps down.
Given that Delegate […]
This was a race that shouldn’t have been anywhere near close. A strong conservative, running in a highly conservative district encompassing a swath of mostly Loudoun County and some of Prince William County, narrowly ekes out a 51 vote victory margin against a no-name liberal who runs a weak campaign amidst the biggest Republican wave […]
NLS makes me seriously consider updating this video about what candidates shouldn’t do. My goodness.
Before we get too giddy about Republicans taking control of the Senate of Virginia, and how that’s going to make it so much easier to get legislation dealing with the illegal immigration issue passed this session, it’s worth taking a sober look at what the prospects actually are. While Dick Saslaw’s regime in the senate […]
You can add one more item to your overflowing bag of reasons why you shouldn’t subscribe or advertise in the News & Messenger today, as their editor starts making not-so-veiled threats against the founder of PotomacLocal.com, which just happens to be outworking this dinosaur on the other end of the county from me. I can […]
I knew the communists had a stronghold in Woodbridge, but I hadn’t ever thought it was like this. The notorious anti-Semite Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago is headlining a fundraiser at Ebeneezer Baptist Church in Woodbridge this January.
So far there’s no word on whether his remarks will include “God damn America.”
I ran into E. W. Jackson during the Prince William GOTV Rally last week and took this opportunity to do a short interview with him. A lot of people in Northern Virginia haven’t heard of Bishop Jackson, and he’s one of the Republican candidates worth checking out as the US Senate nomination race starts […]
An illegal alien from Guatemala was sentenced to 20 years in prison today for the murder of a three month old baby. I’m sure the prison conditions he will experience here will be far superior to what he’d endure in his home country.
It’s too bad we can’t ship criminal illegal aliens back to wherever they came from, […]
My good friend Chris Royse lost in his election bid for Woodbridge Supervisor last evening, a tough blow in what was an incredible opportunity to build new leadership in Woodbridge that would cooperate with the other major transportation corridor in the county (Gainesville, the I-66 corridor) and deliver a long-term strategy for the county to transition from […]
Quite a few surprises happened last night, and I’m still going through the mounds of results, but here are some of the things I think are worth noting early.
Looks like a largely typical turnout this year at various precincts around Prince William County so far today. Republicans seem to have a solid ground game going, Democrats have some paid “volunteers” at the polls boosting their precinct operations but are unusually light on signage.
Feel free to add your observations in the comments thread.
This is just too funny. Wheeler, a Democrat running in the Gainesville District is making robocalls to voters who participated in this summer’s primary election asking for their support and implying she is the Republican nominee. GVTruthSquad has the scoop:
…the voice then says, “We want to thank you for voting in the Republican Primary election. […]
Upset that Virginia hasn’t done anything about charter schools, illegal immigration, getting out of the liquor business, merit pay for teachers, or dealing with exploding entitlements, to name a few items? The Senate is where all the bills to reform Virginia go to die, and Senate Majority Dick Saslaw is the one who makes sure that happens. […]
On Tuesday, write-in “Ham Sandwich” for Prince William County Commonwealth’s Attorney. If Paul Ebert wants another term, he’s going to have to beat the meat!
