This is about the strangest communication I’ve ever gotten from the Commonwealth of Virginia. Which Democrat did I piss off this time?
Funny, I never thought I was a charity before.
I saw on facebook that Jeremy McPike was going to have a campaign event at the Dale City Volunteer Fire Department tonight that was billed as “Zumba With The Candidate”, and I just wasn’t going to miss this. I’ve never seen a candidate dress up in a spandex outfit and lead an exercise class before, […]
Oh, Tom Davis, you’re such a naughty boy.
Threatening campaign contributors that aren’t supporting Jeannemarie Davis but are instead contributing to other campaigns using your corporate email account is just so, well, cheeky. What a cad you are! Did you really mean it when you tell them that they won’t ever get any business from Deloitte […]
I really appreciate it when the local media outlets do such a fine job of promoting the communities they serve as such a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family. In this installment of “What A Great Place To Live” we turn to Manassas Park Patch which is happy to let us know that […]
An email like this from Rob Clapper and the Prince William Chamber of Commerce wouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but it sure would take the most recent lovefest for Communist dictator Fidel Castro to a whole new level.
The conference report for the transportation budget deal was delivered to the House of Delegates today for a vote on final passage. Here’s what it looked like.
Too good not to share. H/T: Riley at Virtucon.
Sometimes, YouTube is a dubious friend.
In this instance, Lieutenant Governor candidate Pete Snyder posted a video on YouTube, and it helpfully suggested some other “related” videos that I might be interested in watching after I finished with Pete. In this case, there are some news clips, something about a swine flu panic, a cow, a […]
The Wikimedia Foundation has announced that it is moving hosting of their main technical operation, including Wikipedia, to a data center in Ashburn, Virginia from their current hosting provider in Florida. Wikimeda explains that “this is intended to improve the technical performance and reliability of all Wikimedia sites, including Wikipedia,” which is a pretty big compliment to […]
Delegate Joe Morrissey wanted to make a point about the danger of firearms during this session of the General Assembly. In doing so, Morrissey managed to point a firearm towards the visitors gallery of the House of Delegates in the Capitol Building in Richmond while putting his finder on the trigger, inadvertently endangering an unknown […]
I have a supremely low tolerance for idiots, especially the kind that are determined to gain my attention and waste my time. Take for example Mr. Joe Glean of Alexandria, a perennial candidate for just about anything who decided to run as a write-in candidate for President this year. He was prepared for this […]
From the envelope enclosing the invitation to the Lt. Governor’s annual fundraiser.
You’d think that someone running for the office of Governor of Virginia might be able to properly spell the title for his fundraiser, which is known as “Burgers With Bill.” Nice job keeping your eye on the details there, Bill. Without even opening an […]
Lie to someone in order to get personal access to them. Use that access to make a ridiculous documentary that portrays them as a monster. Then ask them to be your buddy on LinkedIn. Have liberals just gone plain nuts, or has the open borders Coffee Party types become so desperate they need to reach […]
Maybe this is the season for good jokes, as well as good cheer. Luke Torian for Lieutenant Governor? Really?
Maybe Virginia Democrats simply don’t have much in the way of alternatives. Or perhaps they’ve finally discovered a sense of humor. If it’s the latter, I thank them for a good laugh that made my season a […]
NLS makes me seriously consider updating this video about what candidates shouldn’t do. My goodness.
I think this guy has a real future in broadcasting.
You’re a candidate for office, and you want to get your message out. What better way to do that than with a video? It’s inexpensive, you can do anything you want, and it’s sure to get attention. As Too Conservative and Not Larry Sabato point out today, that wide open field does however allow candidates to pretty much disqualify […]
From the “truth is stranger than fiction department” comes this gem: a man tries a do-it-yourself home cremation of his Rottweiler, which died the week before. The result was $70,000 in fire damage to his home and a likely citation for burning without a permit.
In related news, a Unitarian Church is expunging from their hymnal any hymns that […]
Poor, little, criminally-bent hard-up dude. He can’t find a date. He can’t afford something inflatable. To top it off he gets caught by the cops inside the closet of the Woodbridge MVC Late Night store in flagrante dilecto with a blow-up doll. The suspect’s name is — get this — “Little Jim.”
I so value the adult stores […]
July 4th typically kicks off the campaign season in earnest, so here are some tips for candidates on how to present their campaigns in a credible manner with video. See if you can spot which of the examples included are candidates in Virginia - there’s one U.S. Senate candidate and one Virginia Senate candidate, […]
Those boys down in Bristol, VA sure are a humble lot. Mentioned simply as an aside in an article about Senator William Wampler’s retirement announcement is the stunning revelation that he set a new world record for land speed the day before telling Virginia that he would not seek re-election in the Senate of Virginia.
