    The Republican Party of Viriginia (RPV) was taken over by the lunatic fringe.  Teabaggers infiltrated a majority of local and county GOP committees.  Then, they changed the RPV rules to establish nomination by a convention, not a primary.

    They did this because our current Lt Gov, Bill Bolling (R) is not insane enough for them.  Their favorite is our current AG, Ken Cuccinelli . . . whom we lovingly refer to as "Cooch" or "Kookynelly."  The Teabaggers new Bolling would beat Cooch in a primary but they could control a convention.

    In the two previous governor's races, almost 200,000 voters participated in the Republican primary.  This time, a convention of around 8,000 chose their candidate.  Not exactly a grass-roots movement.

    Reports from the convention say Cuccinelli refused to have his photo made with his new running mate.

      " Then, they changed the RPV rules to establish nomination by a convention, not a primary. "

      Many are also aware that Kansas and Tex have pulled off the same deal , only about 1000 voters picked the GOP candidates in Ks. , they ran lots of moderate GOP out of office

      I have very little faith that GOP voters will stand up to these storm troopers , most of the GOP I know just pretend none of this is happening , while they vote these lunatics into office , they are all to embarrassed to admit it ,  yet they probably even send them cash , I am done with these treasonous back stabbers
