The Irony Must Be Lost

This is just too funny!

It appears that Jeff Wolinski AKA "Loudmouthed Inciter" ... er, "Loudoun Insider" is all upset because the new Chairman of the Loudoun County School Board has abolished roll call votes.

Now, Wolinski is correct on the principle: anyone who can't bear the consequences of association with his public actions is craven.

I wonder if he's considered irony of blogging under a pseudonym ... and squashing any efforts on his own cite to identify him (Jeff Wolinski, that is) with his pseudonym.

Well, He's Half Right

Apparently, President Barry has told ABC's Diane Sawyer than he'd "rather be a really good one-term President."

Well, he's half right.

JoAnn Chase NOT Running For 10th District Chairman

Apropos of comments made elsewhere, it was quite apparent at tonight's Prince William County GOP Committee meeting that JoAnn Chase will NOT be throwing her hat in the ring for 10th Congressional District Republican Chairman. She was enthusiastically supporting and working for Howie Lind.

It was quite nice renewing our acquaintance with JoAnn, who fifteen years ago was an enthusiastic member and supporter of the Prince William County Young Republicans.

Good Riddance To Bad Garbage

If this is accurate, the Virginia GOP just got stronger.

Jeff Wolinski AKA "Loudmouthed Inciter" AKA "Loudoun Insider" is reporting that Jim Rich is not running for reelection as Republican Chairman for the 10th Congressional District.

Most Republican grassroots activists know Rich as the individual who was willing to prevaricate in order to remove State Republican Chairman Pat McSweeney in 1994, at the behest of newly-elected Governor George Allen. Apparently, the rap on McSweeney at the time was that he didn't do enough to throw the nomination to Allen, and may even have supported Earle Williams, who --- as older readers may recall --- ran as the "moderate" alternative to Allen.

Those who don't know about this --- I was at the State Central Committee meeting where the "charges" were preferred --- may simply know Rich as the individual who works very hard to perpetuate his own power by phantom calls for conventions and unreasonably (i.e., before the call even is published) early filing deadlines for District Chairman.

Rich apparently says he's not running out of "family concerns."

Rumor has it that Keith Olbermann, MSNBC's leading south end of a northbound horse, has suffered a stroke in the wake of the Massachusetts election returns.

The First Break In The Wall

In light of Senator-elect Scott Brown's victory in Massachusetts, Senator Jim Webb AKA Senator Thinskin (D-WaPo) has declared that the Senate should suspend all votes until Brown is sworn in.

Apparently, the first Democrat to see the handwriting on the wall.


AP is projecting Scott Brown as the new junior Senator from the People's Republic of Massachusetts!

BarryCare is dead!

What Will The Media's Response Be?

Just a little over three years ago, Ben Tribbett managed to interject himself effectively in the Virginia Senate race between George Allen and Jim Webb AKA Senator Thinskin (D-WaPo) by breaking the story about the former's use of the work "macaca" with regard to a functionary of the latter's campaign in following him around with a video camera. The Washington Post followed up with literally scores of stories questioning Senator Allen's "racism" in response, and it's probable that this constant drumbeat of criticism provided Senator Thinskin's margin of victory (fewer than 10,000 votes statewide).

Now, functionaries for Massachusetts Attorney General Martha (AKA "Marsha") Coakley have visited violence upon campaign functionaries who were merely filming a Coakley event.

While it's a little late for an effective drumbeat, one cannot help but wonder what the so-called "mainstream" media's response will be to this?

Maybe George Allen Should Have Tried This

It seems that a Weekly Standard reporter was roughed up by a Democrat operative while trying to ask Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley a question about health care last night.

Maybe if George Allen had called the Democrat operative who broke the "macaca" story a "stalker" --- as Coakley has --- he might have beaten Senator Thinskin (D-WaPo).

New Portrait Of Virginia's Senators

Apparently, Senators Marky Mark (left) and ThinSkin Gump (right), both D-WaPo, have released a new joint portrait, reproduced here.

H/T to Virginia Virtucon. I wish I'd thought of it. I really do.

Unmitigated Arrogance

I love good television shows, and the USA Network--- owned by Universal Studios, the same company that owns NBC --- has an abundance of them.

It's a real pity that network executives insist upon using their entertainment as a vehicle for their ideological agenda. First, it was a "green" agenda, not talked about much lately in light of the fraud scandal out of the University of East Anglia. Lately, it's been more about "I'm a character," with various stars from various shows, mentioning one unique characteristic regarding themselves. One even says (surprise!) "I'm a Democrat."

Still waiting to hear one of them identify him or herself as a Republican.

Obviously, it's their right, but some of their commentary is so absurd as to induce nausea. Former NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw has a vehicle, something about life along US Route 50 (which runs from Annapolis, Maryland, to Sacramento, California). What is most interesting is how it's pitched: stories about America "at its most historic time."

"Most historic time"!?!?! Who do they think they're kidding? More historic than the Revolution? Unless they believe or hope that we are in the midst of a socialist revolution --- might be some merit to this --- probably not. More historic than the Civil War? World War II? Man's --- an American's --- first landing on the Moon?

Of course, it is just ideological claptrap. However, it at least has the virtue of revealing the absurdity of its proponents.
