Feckless Republicanism

Ah, well.

It appears one of those individuals you would not want at the top of your party, is now going to be right there at the top of our party.

This, of course, fits a pattern within the GOP.

Reminder: It is telephone book season throughout Northern Virginia - they showed up in recent weeks and they are littering our curbs and office building foyers. I have at least 70 pounds of phone books in my office doorway, for instance.

If you are still getting solicitations with postage-paid reply cards or envelopes from the national Republican Party, the Republican Party of Virginia, the Republican Senatorial Committee, the George W. Bush Cheerleader Society, or whatever, you have a perfect avenue for protest: Send 'em a phone book or three, COD. They will need them.

Support individual candidates, while defunding the party.

The party needs a slap in the face.

UPDATE: Good guy Shaun Kenney, who bears the heavy burden of a paycheck with the word "Republican" on it, seeks to clarify that the Republican Party of Virginia should not be lumped in with the others I mentioned and therefore does not deserve any C.O.D. telephone books as the others most certainly do:


In defense of little ol' RPV, it is a grassroots organization -- meaning that it doesn't take policy positions unless explicitly authorized to do so by the State Central Committee, nor does it automatically endorse incumbents as the RNC does.

In short, RPV operates as the collected voice of the grassroots in Virginia. Please don't send phonebooks.


I'll buy that .... for now.

Shaun: With one exception. This year, the former Chairman RPV made commercials supporting HB 3202. He didn't get a vote from SCC. He may have made a telcon to the Executive Committee of the SCC, but it never came to our vote.

This is true -- Executive Committee did approve supporting House and Senate leadership on the transportation package when it was communicated to the Governor...

The short version still applies: RPV doesn't take policy positions of its own volition.

Well, I see two Senators who don't deserve my vote. Having lived in both AZ and VA, , let me tell ya, those two are big disappointments.

McCain was a pilot and a gutsy son of a gun, but he sold out to Bush on immigration for his support in the primary. Which shows he is a two time idiot. First beaten in 2000, and now he scuttles what is left of his career for the support of an lame duck. That and his behavior since the SC primary shows me that he would have been a bad choice for president.

The other character's only good move I can remember was coming out against Ollie North. He needs to be made gone, in a big way so VA can get Republican in the Senate.
