Bad Call, Governor

26 February 2010 | National Politics, Virginia Politics, US Senate | 69 Comments

This is a big disappointment.  I could understand Governor McDonnell keeping mum about the Arizona senate race, but I can’t understand Bob McDonnell endorsing for re-election that tremendous and consistent disappointment to conservatives called John McCain.

Mark Warner Comedy Gold

26 December 2009 | Virginia Politics, US Senate | 7 Comments

From the most excellent From On High:
According to Amy Gardner, Washington Post reporter, Virginia Senator Mark Warner’s first year in office was a waste of time (he “has found himself mainly on the sidelines”), but he’s doing his best to pull his liberal Democrat colleagues back toward the “center” of American politics.
Say what?
Yeah, the Post […]

Warner and Webb: Harry Reid’s Lap Dogs

21 December 2009 | National Politics, US Senate | 18 Comments

In the middle of the night the Senate invoked cloture on the massive “manager’s amendment” to the Senate’s health care bill, with Senators Warner and Webb voting to stop the discussion. Although no one has been able to actually see the amendment under consideration, it includes Sen. Harry Reid’s unprecedented payoff to Ben Nelson […]

Since Others Are Getting Freebies…

19 December 2009 | National Politics, US Senate | 19 Comments

Senator Ben Nelson held out a bit on ObamaCare and got hundreds of millions of dollars from the federal government to cover the increased costs that will be forced on to states like Virginia as a result of this bill.  Senator Mary Landrieu got 300 million dollars for Louisiana in return for her support.  Some […]

NLS Attacks Grandmother

17 December 2009 | Virginia Politics, US Senate | 7 Comments

Note: vulgarity alert (below the fold)
I can understand a blogger supporting a preferred candidate or elected official.  What I can’t grasp is what would drive one to personally attack an elderly lady expressing her opinion as a “pathetic old woman” when she happens not to like that candidate.  Has the left become so incredibly unhinged […]

Jim Webb’s Constituent Service

16 December 2009 | National Politics, US Senate | 21 Comments

Senator Jim Webb, you better start treating your constituents better. You don’t want more of them feeling like this.
UPDATE: NLS is now attacking this woman.  Read more here.

ObamaCare For Glorious Benefit Of America?

24 August 2009 | Gerry Connolly, US Senate, US Congress | 5 Comments

What would someone say who lived under the kind of socialized medicine scheme that liberals want us to have here in the United States about whether it’s a good idea or not? If you’ve been wondering, here’s your answer, and it’s a pretty definitive one. Immigrants from Latvia and the Ukraine […]

I Like This

24 August 2009 | National Politics, US Senate | No Comments

Folks down in Richmond aren’t happy that Senators Warner and Webb aren’t scheduling any public Town Hall meetings with constituents that would allow them to express  their concerns about the health care proposals being considered by Congress, or allow them to suggest alternative solutions.  So they put up this billboard, and more are planned over […]

Will Webb And Warner Confirm This Nutcase?

2 July 2009 | National Politics, US Senate | 21 Comments

This satire piece, appearing in the DC Examiner pretty much nails the judicial outlook of Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor.  I can’t imagine any rational reason why Senators Warner and Webb would vote to confirm someone like this who clearly values racial preferences over the Constitution, other than following a mindless intent to support whatever […]

News Roundup

19 June 2009 | Illegal Aliens, Crime, US Senate | 39 Comments

Connolly votes for terrorists to come to Virginia, billions dollars worth of U.S Treasuries recovered in a smuggling attempt,  and GMU’s director of the Mason Project on Immigration declares GMU is knowingly violating federal law.  Here’s a run-down on a few more interesting stories developing this week…

Mark Warner Slaps Manassas In The Face

21 May 2009 | Manassas City, US Senate | 10 Comments

Manassas City residents will be really pleased to learn that Senator Mark Warner has asked for $100,000 in taxpayer money to be given to H.O.M.E of Richmond, the outfit that litigated against Manassas City resulting in a settlement that severely challenged the city’s budget during difficult economic times.  While Senator Warner lavishes your taxpayer dollars […]

RINO Specter Officially a Jackass

28 April 2009 | National Politics, US Senate | 40 Comments

Guest post by Sanford D. Horn
This just in: former RINO Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania has made it official just moments ago that he is leaving the GOP and returning to his Philadelphia Democratic Party roots, in what is no doubt a desperate attempt to hang on the Senate seat to he currently clings.
Specter announced he […]

Warner Wins Senate

4 November 2008 | Virginia Politics, US Senate | 10 Comments

Fox News is reporting at 7:10 that Mark Warner has won his Senate race.  Not much of a surprise here, although it’s somewhat depressing that a tax hike like Warner can cruise to victory so easily.
I wonder how this would have turned out if Bob Marshall was the Republican nominee.  I daresay he couldn’t have […]

Mark Warner Insults The Electorate

6 October 2008 | US Senate | 20 Comments

Just in case any of you out there were buying Mark Warner’s baloney that he’s some sort of “moderate”, post-partisan, reasonable kind of guy, this should lay all such misunderstandings to rest. I seem to recall Warner saying that he wouldn’t raise taxes on the campaign trail when he was […]

Gilmore Stands Up For Us

4 October 2008 | National Politics, US Senate | 29 Comments

At least there’s one candidate for office this election who grasps what representing the electorate is all about:
Gilmore came out strongly against the $700 billion plan, arguing in a concise way that it amounted to government run amok. Warner supported the bailout, saying it was needed to prevent economic turmoil. Warner tried to pin […]

Senators Want More Immigrants With AIDS

17 July 2008 | National Politics, US Senate | 31 Comments

We apparently do not have enough HIV-positive people in this country, and have a need to import them from overseas, as Fox News reports:
Under current law, HIV is the only medical condition explicitly listed under immigration law. The Kerry-Smith provision would make HIV equivalent to other communicable diseases where medical and public health experts at […]

Mark Warner Displays Incompetence

17 June 2008 | Virginia Politics, US Senate | 17 Comments

Mark Warner decided to weigh in on the illegal alien issue in an interview with the Clarke Times-Courier, demonstrating at best his utter incompetence on this issue.  For someone who is expected to have a good grasp on the issues that most concern Virginia voters, Mark Warner absolutely is falling far short of that mark.  […]

Gilmore Wins

31 May 2008 | RPV, US Senate | 25 Comments

I had to leave early before the results for Senate were announced, but Jim Gilmore eked out a very narrow victory at the Republican Convention today, Bearing Drift reports.  Based on the sticker count I saw, Jeff Frederick should cruise to a pretty substantial victory.
Congratulations to Jim Gilmore for his victory, and Bob Marshall for […]

Marshall Wraps Up Late Endorsements

30 May 2008 | Virginia Politics, US Senate | 4 Comments

First, from the publisher of National Review Online, Jack Fowler:
I am the publisher of National Review, so I believe I have some conservative credentials. And a long time ago I was a member of the Spotsylvania Republican Party.
That said, I support Bob Marshall as THE conservative candidate, and I have put my money where my […]

Jim Gilmore Walks Into An Ambush

27 May 2008 | Virginia Politics, US Senate | 10 Comments

A funny thing happened on the way to Jim Gilmore’s anticipated coronation, in a way that’s not entirely unlike the planned coronation that Hillary Clinton was somewhat unexpectedly denied.  Jim Gilmore pressured the Republican State Central Committee to decide on a convention rather than a primary as a means of selecting a nominee for the […]
