This November we have the opportunity to retire Gerry Connolly from Congress. This is the person who should replace him.
Elections often provide a source of amusement for us, and the circus surrounding the Senate candidacy of Montana legislator Amanda Curtis is certainly among those. A Democrat candidate spewing Marxist dogma, given to praising Communist Party icons and all-around wingnut never seems to exhaust our capacity to revel in political mirth. But what if I were to […]
… is that we might never be subject to the inane, incoherent rantings of Gerald Geddes ever again. If ever there was a person not suited for campaigning for public office, he would be the guy.
Of equal note, the excellent Suzanne Scholte is almost guaranteed to be the Republican nominee to take on Gerry Connolly […]
Tomorrow Republicans (and doubtless a few Democrats) will go to polling locations across the 10th Congressional District to select a Republican nominee for Congress to replace Frank Wolf. By all appearances this is going to be a not terribly competitive matchup between the establishment’s well-funded candidate Barbara Comstock and the typically under-funded Conservative Bob Marshall.
I hope that most of you, unlike myself, have not been subjected to the ongoing clown show that has been the communications effort from Gerald Geddes. His bid for the Republican nomination in the 11th Congressional District of Virginia has been an ongoing demonstration of what happens when an idiot campaigner is armed with an […]
The next time you see some blog post supporting Barbara Comstock or trashing her opponents with silly arguments, make sure you ask yourself this question: is the person writing this article on Barbara Comstock’s payroll? Or is the local self-styled pundit who is clogging up a comments thread being paid to do so by a […]
A credible source has tipped me off that in the next few days Delegate Bob Marshall will announce a run for the 10th Congressional District, having obtained the level of grassroots support he feels he needs to run a strong and credible campaign for Congress. Barbara Comstock may well have a real race on her […]
Frank Wolf has announced he will not seek re-election in 2014, which is guaranteed to kick off quite a contest to see who the Republican nominee will be.
Does Barbara Comstock have this locked down, or will there actually be a contest? We’re going to find out pretty soon.
UPDATE: Dick Black is looking at a run […]
When the family members left behind after this Administration abandoned their sons, fathers and husbands in Bengazi went to talk to Congress, Gerry Connolly walked out on them. Ambassador Chris Stevens, US Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods died during an hours-long battle with terrorists, abandoned by an administration […]
As NLS puts it, this is totally unacceptable.
The Moran clan have been embarrassing Virginians with their out of control behavior for far too long. It’s well past time the whole bunch was retired from politics.
UPDATE: And this happens on a day when Jim Moran decries, of all things, voter fraud. Go figure.
Like quite a few other Virginians, I recently got my new voter identification card in the mail (no, not the one Bob McDonnell will be sending out again) because due to redistricting I’m being moved into the 1st District from the 10th District. I always liked pulling the lever for Frank Wolf and found him […]
After utterly zero consideration of the enormous flaws of the congressional redistricting map commonly known as “the incumbent protection plan,” Governor McDonnell has signed it into law. Thank you so much, Mr. Governor and our representatives in the General Assembly, for rolling over on this tragic stupidity so Congressmen can feel more safe and comfortable.
Just guess who Democrat Ann Wheeler picked to host a fundraiser for her on October 16th? Here’s a clue:
On occasion Congressman Gerry Connolly is prone to moments of honesty that are instructive for conservatives, and it’s important to pay attention when they happen. If we can ignore for a moment the ridiculous mischaracterization of the issue he was dealing with at the time, this is the absolute blueprint for defending liberty in Virginia - be […]
I was at an event in Clifton today doing some work for Delegate Tim Hugo. Part of the festivities involved local dignitaries, and Congressman Gerry Connolly was there just long enough to make an appearance and then bolt, as usual. Before Connolly left I saw him pigeon-hole Delegate Hugo and launch into a heated conversation, and […]
Inspiration from a press release from Vaughn for Congress.

While Congressman Jim Moran’s assault on the military and its veterans went viral Friday, April 8, one day following a town hall meeting held in Alexandria at Hammond Middle School, nary a word appeared in The Washington Post.
Moran treated Wayne Tunick, a disabled 27-year veteran rudely following an important question […]
The new Congressional redistricting map is out and it turns out to be even a little stranger than the map we were teased with earlier. Folks in my neighborhood, those west of Manassas and south of Rt. 29 are all in the 1st Congressional district, currently represented by Rob Wittman. At least we didn’t get […]
Just when there’s a budget crisis in Congress and the possibility of a shutdown and default are looming, Congressman Gerry Connolly emerged from his burrow to announce six more weeks of silliness in the greatest deliberative body in the world. Not content with defending enormous deficit spending, Connolly is proposing we change the short title […]
The so-called “DREAM Act”, a nightmare back-door amnesty for illegal aliens, is now on the floor of the lame duck Congress, which suggests that Nancy Pelosi has the votes to pass it. While it’s being billed as a way to give amnesty to minors, what it actually does is set up a mechanism to allow […]
