  •  Virginia Governor's race is also interesting... (0+ / 0-)

    ...seeing as how T-Mac looks set to win the primary but Bob McDonnell (B-Mac?) is still leading in the election polls.

    Would like to see more coverage of the VA race, seeing as how this is an election actually taking place this year AND a Gubernatorial victory in November is about the one thing that could reverse the GOP's death-spiral narrative.

    Also, tough slow? Tough slough?

    •  Neither is appropriate... (0+ / 0-)

      "Slow" as a verb is to reduce speed. And "slough" as a verb is to cast off, which would be what Toomey would be doing to either Specter or Ridge if they were in the primary against him.

        ...you are correct about the definition, but I am also correct about mine. The medical definition is as you have listed. Another definition is a bog, and the psychological feeling of being in a bog, which is, "a state of deep despair or moral degradation."

      I find it difficult to swallow that McAuliffe is going to win that Primary, but June 9 is rapidly approaching. That's not stopping me from sending Moran another $50.

      Just remember that Bob McDonnell was first elected to office when one couldn't smell a GOP State Convention credential - delegate or alternate - from Virginia Beach without Pat Robertson's blessing. If there is one thing that McAuliffe's money can do, it remind Virginians of who McDonnell really is. Whether he can translate his cash into effective organization is a different matter....
