It's Amazing What You Can Get Away With When You're Shameless


Democrats uninterested in reports that the Clintons rearranged the White House furniture by launching items at one another's heads are now defending a scumbag who has raised questions about George Allen's relationship with his ex-wife.

Bold words from a supporter (the aforementioned scumbag) of a man with three ex-wives.

Why haven't Jim Webb and his paid Internet bloggers condemned this behavior? I've seen only one (tepid) statement of non-support, and it was, of course, coupled with a condemnation of Allen and his campaign.

If Jim Webb won't prevail upon his supporters to act in a civilized manner, he certainly doesn't deserve election to the United States Senate.

Then again, no substanceless boob deserves election to the United States Senate.

Jim- I dont post on blogs but couldnt resist with Senator Flip-Flops remarks

I can’t sit this one out- Democrats delivered this year’s October surprise or gift in the form of a self inflicted wound on Monday.
Former Democrat Presidential nominee and party leader Senator John Kerry delivered the most incendiary comments I have ever heard from a public servant. At an appearance, he said “ If you make the most of education, study hard, do your homework, make an effort to be smart you can do well if you don’t you’ll get stuck in Iraq”
“Most incendiary” is hard for me to say. It seems so dramatic but it’s true.
In this time of partisanship, pandering, placating, and pundits, this is one American just looking for straight talk and the truth. Obviously, being a Republican candidate in 2005 I have a bias. But I feel that the Reagan optimism, movement politics, and conservative values of limited government and traditional family values, which attracted me to the GOP, have been abandoned for power grubbing empty suits thus leaving me feeling alienated.
This election season has been far from boring, riffed with scandal with Mark, Memphis melt-down, and “maccca”. If politics is a blood sport, then this years spatter patterns are coving our country.
Republicans have struggled to stay on their positive message of accomplishments, but the facts are we have a booming economy, record stock market, and no terrorist attacks on American soil since September 11, 2001.
Democrats have made their focus Iraq and President Bush. While unpatriotic quotes by Democrat house and senate leadership have miraculously not found their way to the headlines in the “drive by media”, Kerry’s comments Monday were to outrageous to ignore.
Kerry’s comments proved what the Republican base has feared all along. We may not be happy with all of our candidates, their position on every issue, or the moral decline of our country. We can be assured under the leadership of Kerry allies a Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi or Majority Leader Harry Reid promises to include higher taxes, more illegal immigrants crossing our boarders, weak homeland security, liberal Supreme Court justices and gay marriage.
Much has been said in recent days about Karl Roves 3 point plan to court the Republican base to ensure Election Day victory. The fact is there is no quicker way to get your base back than what should be his 4th point-- have your opponents leader offend every service member active or retired as well as their family and the families of 3000 fallen soldiers.
Democrat Kerry’s comments are no surprise to most—remember he is the one who voted for the 87 billion to fund the war before he voted against it. He is the um dumb who said earlier this year “American soldiers are terrorizing women and children in the dead of night.” One Democrat congressman alluded that Senator Flip flop fouled up Democrat chances in 2004; he may have just may have plunged the preverbal knife into Democrat chances again this year.
Coming from this frustrated American who just decided not to sit this one out, to other frustrated Americans. I ask you to look at this quote again “If you make the most of education, study hard, do your homework, make an effort to be smart you can do well, if you don’t you’ll get stuck in Iraq” please ask yourself which party represents the values, and core principles that you think will lead America to be freer and more prosperous. It may not be the Republicans but it certainly is not the Democrats.

Anyone else catch this? Democrats locally are no better. Last week the post dedicated an article to Corey and Sharon. The Chairman of the Economic Development Council is quoted in support of Ms. Pandak. Note he used his title to obviously promote his influence among readers. Furthermore check out his web-site and client list Who appointed him to Chairman of the Economic Development Council anyway? Why can’t Pandak boast about who approached her to run? I'd say Shirlock, there is a common thread here. Read the article below. I say the common thread the former RINO himself SC.

Pr. William Lawyer Plays Catch-Up
Democrat Seeks To Lead Supervisors

By Nick Miroff
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, October 26, 2006; Page B01

Sharon E. Pandak worked the one-two combo between a rack of shopping carts and the automatic doors of a Giant supermarket in Woodbridge on a wet, dreary afternoon last week, greeting locals with her right hand and giving out campaign fliers with the other. She zeroed in on an older gentleman unloading groceries and shuffled over to make her pitch for the top job in Virginia’s second-largest county.

The man sized up the literature, then the candidate.

“You’re in Corey Stewart territory,” he said to her flatly, as if she were trespassing.

True, the supermarket lay squarely in the Occoquan district of Corey A. Stewart, her Republican opponent in the Nov. 7 special election for chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors. But Pandak and her husband, Robert M. Ross, Fairfax County’s attorney, also live in Occoquan.

“I’m in my territory,” Pandak said. “I live nearby.”

Pandak acknowledges that a lack of recognition is the biggest hurdle for her, even though she was an attorney for Prince William for more than 25 years.

Pandak is not flashy, glib or most of the things that can make a candidate shine in a short campaign. She has built her candidacy on her long résumé, highlighting managerial expertise and prudence vs. her opponent’s anti-growth, single-issue fervency.

Unwilling to concede the growth issue to Stewart, she has emphasized “smart growth” policies that create higher-density development around improved public transportation. She has also proposed a $25 million bond to create open space and says her positions reflect a more mature, sensible approach to governing.

“We can’t wave a magic wand and say we want to stop all development,” she said. “It’s not going to happen.”

Pandak, 53, is pressed for time. The campaign, her first, didn’t get off the ground until a few weeks ago, and she began it reluctantly. Being chairman “wasn’t my wildest dream,” she said, and her decision to run was made after “some people” — she declines to say who — approached her about stewarding the remaining 13 months of Republican Sean T. Connaughton’s four-year term as chairman. Connaughton resigned last month to head the U.S. Maritime Administration.

“I would be remiss if I didn’t offer my experience and the connections I have,” Pandak said. “I looked at options that voters had for the chairmanship, and that’s what convinced me to run.”

In that regard, Pandak is also running as the anti-Stewart candidate. She has sought to depict herself as much more of a consensus-builder than her opponent, with working relationships at every level of state government.

After serving as Prince William attorney from 1989 to 2004 and receiving the county’s highest job performance rating, Pandak abruptly resigned to prepare for a run for state attorney general. But Pandak never filed for candidacy because she worried that she couldn’t raise the necessary campaign funds. She returned to private practice, mainly counseling area governments on land-use issues.

Pandak cites memberships in prominent legal and political organizations as other examples of her experience. She has been president of the Prince William County Bar Association and Legal Services of Northern Virginia, and taught at the University of Virginia’s Sorenson Institute for Political Leadership, receiving accolades along the way.

The daughter of a high school basketball coach, Pandak grew up in Staunton, Va. She attended college and law school at William and Mary and said the reason she joined the chairman’s race mirrors her decision to become a lawyer — “to benefit the public.”

Her work has drawn praise from supporters.

“Sharon behaves like someone who thinks about governing as opposed to just campaigning,” said Miles Friedman, chairman of the Prince William Economic Development Council. “She impressed me as county attorney in that she understands key issues and economic development — everything from land use to attracting good-sized companies and the needs of small business.”

More important, said former county supervisors chairman Kathleen K. Seefeldt (D), Pandak can build consensus and has “an intimate knowledge of local government.”

“There won’t be a learning curve,” Seefeldt said. “She comes with a storehouse of knowledge and leadership skills.”

But Pandak’s ties to Seefeldt are also being turned against her by critics who see the 1990s as a time of runaway development and as the origin of the fast-growing county’s traffic and crowding problems.

“It’s been very difficult for Sharon to convince people of her bona fides on the growth issue because she’s so tied to the Seefeldt legacy,” said Gary C. Friedman, whom Pandak defeated for the Democratic nomination.

“Sharon has credibility problems on the most important issue facing the county,” he said, echoing the familiar Stewart charge that Pandak is “cozy” with developers.

Stewart has also charged that Pandak would allow changes to zoning laws that protect the Rural Crescent, 80,000 acres where density is limited to one house per 10 acres, which was created under Seefeldt. “Sharon was the architect of that plan, and to think she wouldn’t protect it is plain silly,” Seefeldt said, calling the issue “a political smoke screen.”

“The growth management issue is more complicated than protecting something that’s already protected,” Seefeldt said.
