And Virginia Really Voted this Guy In? Words Fail

I am still trying to sort out what this man's ascension to a Commonwealth-wide office says about Virginians.

UPDATE: Well, I think I found an example of how "the Cooch" got elected in the Commonwealth.

Yeah Free, I've been scratching my head about how in such a short time my state has gone from Mark Warner and Tim Kaine and voting for Obama to the current Gov. and Atty. Gen who seem to be living in 1852.

Of course I'm still scratchin' my head about how Teddy Kennedy's seat went to Scott Brown.

Virginia is a bellweather for how society can return to being rooted in discriminatory policies and laws.

Why would anyone spend time focusing upon "the acts" between two consenting adults? The U.S. is NOT a sexual police state, Virginia on the otherhand appears to be heading toward that.

The Governor and Attorney General of Virginia can wrap themselves up in the flag (though not together), yet what they're really espousing is a government acting on the behalf of those claiming religious knowledge as the tool to oppress others.

We need to start couching the arguments regarding "Equal Rights States", and "Unequal Rights States".

The commonwealth of Virginia is the crucible for unequal rights.

I'm just sayin'...
