good bye to that macaca scumbag.
BYE ASSH*LE YOU HAVE BEEN A DISGRACE TO THE USMC AND THE NAVY! What NEXT is this POS going to screw up?
Obamacare supporter...I’m thinking he knows he doesn’t stand a chance.
But the media has told me that the left is still looking good in ‘12. The GOP shouldn’t run candidates because people really love Rat policies no matter what the voters said in ‘10. They couldn’t be wrong could they?
Steve walks warily down the street, his brim pulled way down low...
And another one bites, and another one bites...
Will George Allen give it another try ? Or wil “Macaca” be the eternal albatross on his neck?

He can go back to writing gay porn!
“The healthcare issue really took away a lot of the credibility of the new leadership—Obama particularly—the Reid-Pelosi-Obama trio,” he said.
...to that so called moderate.
Next up, Joe Manchin, WV
Wants to resume his writing career. He misses describing child pornography in his books.
Is he going back to writing books describing sex with children?
Any other Democrats want to save their money? Step right up...
I wonder why he’s announcing now. Still a bit early. It could be that Barry and Harry threw him under the bus, after having destroyed him with the Healthcare vote.
Who will run in Virginia for the GOP? Do the Dems have someone waiting on deck?
This job was simply too difficult for Webb ~
Now, to get some of the others out of there ~ I'm thinking Leahy ought to leave. He's crazy. Man actually brags about committing genocide.
webb...you fool. Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
This would mean that he would have to align his votes on the ObamaInsurance bill with the wishes of Commonwealth Governor Bob McDonnell, Commonwealth Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, as well as the State Legislature. We'll see over the coming months whether he devotes his allegiance to the Commonwealth of Virginia, or whether he give it over to Harry Reid.
allen has already tossed his hat in. So has a tea party candidate.
Maybe Rick Santorum will run for his seat.
I wonder how long it will take Mark Warner to realize he needs to pack his bags too.
Manchin isn’t going to retire. Ben Nelson of Nebraska is next.
vs. who for Dems do you think? Looks like they're going to try to talk Timmy of Jumping Eyebrow fame into running.
Periello or Kaine as the D candidate in VA? You have got to be kidding me.
Please, not Kaine. He needs to remain where he is for as long as possible.
Getting out of DC so soon?
Ken Cuccinelli needs to run.
Rick is from PA.
Also, the Lt. Gov and the State AG changed from Dems to Repubs recently. U. S. Senator Mary Landrieu is the only remaining state wide elected Dem. We are hoping that she will not seek reelection. She is a “Louisiana in Name Only” resident anyway because she built a $1.2 million mansion in D. C. several years ago. She only shows up in LA when it suits her political interests. She refused to hold town hall meetings during the Obamacare debate. She just didn't want to be confused by the facts.
She should read the tea leaves because she will not be reelected if we tea party types are successful.
Kaine is probably their best choice. The question for him would be, “Do I risk a defeat and cut my political career short?” Obama will be a drag on any Dem ticket here. The economy and jobs will be crucial, but in VA the unemployment rate is 6.4%.
Rick lives in VA.
Manchin is up for election in 2012 . He is filling Byrds term.
Nelson needs to gos, as well.
There will be too many video clips of Kaine figuratively kissing 0’s @ss. Allen could just crucify Kaine with them.
Hence in one Senatorial election campaign an individual only need lie and deceive like a lawyer to get life's gravy. That was clearly true for Jim Webb who pretended to be conservative (gun rights, etc), then voted ala Obama, Reid and company once elected.
That is exactly why the principles of "conservatism," e.g. personal responsibility for all one's decisions, need to be clearly, ideologically, and definitively stated.
Mark Warner is an excellent political example - he was not a bad governor, when he was on the spot for executive decisions - but once Senator he IS a political party puppet. A truly disturbing manifestation of party (ala Communism, Nazism, Baathist, etc) politics. Democratic Party obviously (leftism), but Republican Party not far behind (fecklessness and self preservation).
Oh what a tangled Webb he weaved...
Strange fr responses...
Dr DiLorenzo speaks well of this Marine...
But then...fr does attract strange bedfellows...
News to me.
Statewide 19.6% of the population is black, 4.8% Asian, and 6.7% Latino. Obama will get most of those votes. Turnout will be key. And then there are federal government employees, contractors, and a host of other parasites who live off the body politic. VA is turning purple. The question is how well Obama will be able to get out the liberal vote.
Warner was a terrible governor unless you like to be taxed to death.
Next up, Joe Manchin, WV
You mean that hypocrite that shot the healthcare bill in his campaign ad but voted against repeal the first chance he got?
That lying jerk should be tarred and feathered.
The exodus of 400,000 democrats after Katrina doesn’t hurt either. LOL
You mean the ex Governor who is under investigation, Joe Manchin?
Yes he needs to be indicted and kicked out of office, that lying POS.
Well as Party Chair, Kaine lost a couple congressional seats in 2010 in VA. He took a shellacking and they look to him to win in VA when the wind it at the Republican’s backs?
Right! Go ahead!
I didn’t say that Manchin doesn’t have an election in 2012. I said there is no way he will retire voluntarily.
