He’s going to think about it. For background: there’s currently a fight going on over the vacant VA court seat, and Ken Cuccinelli’s name came up as a possible compromise. It wouldn’t be a bad gig for the man, and he’s certainly a reliable conservative for the position.
…And I don’t know enough about the situation to discuss it further.
Reuters doesn’t exactly elide that: but neither does it really push too much the minor detail that the two seats that Mike Bloomberg poured his money into replaced a retiring Democrat and Republican with… a Democrat and Republican. Indeed, it’s almost as if Bloomberg needn’t have put in any money at all. Although I don’t mind if Democrats and/or liberals throw a lot of money into the electoral process and never get anything back. In fact, I think that they should double down…
Because he ain’t gonna be elected Senator with this attitude:
Gov. Terry McAuliffe is rejecting calls from Virginia House Republican leaders for an investigation into how Planned Parenthood clinics handle fetal organs.
Republicans called for an investigation Thursday following an anti-abortion group’s release of a video showing a Planned Parenthood official discussing the disposal of body parts from aborted fetuses. The group said the video proves the organization is breaking federal law against selling human fetal tissue.

Because this is what a pressure buildup looks like.
- Virginia voters overall appear to soften on Clinton, with Jeb Bush beating
her for the first time in a hypothetical 2016 match-up.
- Clinton beats all other potential Republican challengers, but is unable to
achieve 50% of the vote against any of them.

So I figure that this stance will last all of a day…
Portsmouth Sheriff Bill Watson says he is furious after a group of judges told him to take down an American flag display.
Sheriff Watson said his agency got the American flag display as a gift from members of the Portsmouth Fire Department a few weeks ago.
It’s made of old fire hoses which a sign beneath it that reads, “A Tribute to Public Safety.”
Continue reading Portsmouth, VA judges hate on fire department’s gift of an American flag.
Title: “Virginia Democrats value teacher’s unions over special needs kids by opposing school choice.” It’s all about the money, of course. It usually is, with that crowd.
Oh, my. Question: “Virginians have been buying more firearms than ever,even though crime has been steadily falling. Why?” This winner’s answer? Paraphrased, crime is down because ‘poor’ people are getting abortions*, and people are just buying more guns because they fear and hate Barack Obama because he’s black.
I gather that this article is part of an experiment by the Washington Post. Some might say** that this experiment has visibly failed…
*The author did his best to not make it obvious that this is his opinion, but ‘some say’ is a pretty reliable tell.

The Democratic party of Virginia may now hang its head in collective shame. Well, they’d insist that we’d have to; so what goes around, comes around. “According to the Virginia State Board of Elections, [Joe] Morrissey won 42% of the vote, with opponent Kevin Sullivan trailing behind with just 33%.” Sullivan, by the way, was also a Democrat, which suggests that the voters at Virginia’s 74th district really wanted to be represented by a guy who did a plea about schtupping his seventeen year old intern…
…and maybe impregnating her as well. At least, that’s what yesterday’s search warrant suggested: Continue reading State Delegate Joe Morrissey (D, Virginia), accused sex fiend*, …got re-elected.
But the man shouldn’t have broken the damn law.
Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell was sentenced Tuesday to two years in federal prison for taking bribes to promote a dietary supplement.
The punishment was far below the 10 years prosecutors initially wanted, but still more than the community service the former Republican governor, his defense team and hundreds of supporters argued for.
Continue reading :shaking head: Real shame about Bob McDonnell.
(Via @JohnCardillo) This gets the coveted lolwhut: “Democratic Virginia state delegate Joseph Morrissey, who reached a plea agreement for charges relating to a sexual relationship he had with his 17-year-old office assistant, is yet to decide whether he will resign or commute to work from jail.” Delegate Morrissey – who is 57, and loudly denying the paternity of the child that said office assistant is currently carrying – got a year plus six months suspended for ‘contributing to the delinquency of a minor.’ So now he has to decide whether he’s going to keep working… Continue reading Gun-Grabbing Delegate Joseph Morrissey (D, Virginia) extends the scope of said grabbing.
