    But got up at 5:30 to make it for 6 before heading off for worked.  Luckily, we picked up a delegate seat in the district, one that used to belong to Jeff Frederick who is perhaps the biggest p.o.s. I have ever seen.

    •  You hate him, but voted for him? (0+ / 0-)

      How does that work?

      Actually I liked McDonnell's idea of abolishing state liquor stores.  Maybe it's a sign of someone with an original thought.  We will soon find out.

      •  Because I loathe McDonnell. (0+ / 0-)

        And loathing is worse han hate.

        •  I doubt he will do much (0+ / 0-)

          VA is flat broke and he seems kind of phony on the con "social" issues.

          He is very ambitious for higher office, so I doubt he will take extreme positions that would limit his future.  He completely disavowed his thesis so obviously he is not sincere about con issues.

          He is a "pragmatist" who uses gullible people.  And who is more gullible than the cons who supported him?

          •  He's dangerous (0+ / 0-)

            In that I can see him running for Senate or President after Obama is done with his eight years in office.  And I bet that is why he's trying to paint himself as a moderate when in reality we and the teabaggers know he is really just a fundie.

            •  He will probably run for Pres. (0+ / 0-)

              It is possible that he could be nominated, or be a VP pick, so I doubt he will make another mistake like his thesis.

              He will run on charisma and stay vague on the issues.  Interesting that he flat out rejected Palin's "help."  He may see her as a rival.
