Last week, Gregory Hood wrote that Republicans may take back the House in the midterm elections this year, and then asked: Should we care? Two days ago, at the inauguration of the new Republican governor of Virginia, I think I learned the answer to that question. In 2020, Virginia voted 55 percent to 45 percent... Read More

Youngkin seeks the Jewish stamp of approval
Every time one thinks that politicians in the United States might have actually have had a “come to Jesus” moment and will henceforth serve the people who pay to support them, something pops up to demonstrate that nothing has changed but the names of the folks who are selling most of us out. As a... Read More

History has been rewritten almost daily this week, almost immediately as it occurs. A Wall Street Journal editorial on November 4 spun its view of what is at issue for the Democratic Party: “Voters warn Democrats to walk away from the Sanders-Pelosi agenda.” The Democrats’ own leadership quickly agreed with this take, playing the blame...

Another election, another shellacking. Democrats are returning to the political reality that predated the quantum singularity of Biden's anti-Trump coalition: adrift, ideologically divided and, as always, arguing over whether to chase swing voters or work hard to energize their progressive left base. At the root of the Democrats' problem is rightward drift. The 50-yard line... Read More
"I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach." With this remark — arrogant, dismissive, contemptuous — in his debate with Glenn Youngkin, Terry McAuliffe committed a historic gaffe. From that debate forward, his poll numbers steadily sank until McAuliffe lost his lead, and with it, the election. And going down to... Read More
Moderate Republican Glenn Youngkin surprisingly won the Virginia gubernatorial race this week. The state, once a battleground, has become a solid blue state in recent years. Republicans last won a statewide race in 2009, and few commentators gave Youngkin a shot to win. Donald Trump lost the state by 10 points in 2020 and Republicans... Read More

Good news everyone, the white race is victorious again. Republican Glenn Youngkin defeated former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe in last night’s election for governor. White advocates can savor Mr. McAuliffe’s defeat last night for several reasons. First, it was a good night for Southern rights. Terry McAuliffe was governor during the 2017 Unite the Right...

All’s fair in love, war, and politics. That said, there needs to be at least some plausibility if you’re going to try to smear the opposition. Republican Glenn Youngkin has pulled slightly ahead of Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia governor’s race. In desperation, Mr. McAuliffe, who was governor during the 2017 Unite the Right...

Virginia has become the first southern state to declare "racism" against blacks to be a public health crisis. According to the bipartisan resolution passed in the state senate, state employees will now be mandated to take critical race theory classes, criminal laws will be reformed to avoid prosecuting blacks at higher rates, health care will...

The Old Dominion (the Commonwealth of Virginia) produced the most important members of our Founding Fathers and two of the most successful military leaders in history, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, but has somehow managed to elect a nutcase for its current governor. His name is Ralph Northam, and he seems to have many... Read More

Despite the size of the red districts, this was a narrow (in the Senate) for the blue team, because of greater population in the blue regions—including immigrants. It’s official, maybe: Virginia is blue. Republicans lost control of the Old Dominion’s General Assembly on Tuesday, an Election-Day blowout that put Virginia’s government in Democrat hands. Political... Read More

If the reader will permit me this once a somewhat personal and idiosyncratic essay–heretofore I have never been either personal or idiosyncratic–I will promise never to do it again. No one can doubt the reliability of my promises. I have played in writing over the years with my birth in West Virginia and my consequent... Read More
