In honor of "Taliban Bob" McDonnell's last day as Attorney General, here's a video of him with his "dear friend" Pat Robertson's (who also refers to McDonnell as a "distinguished graduate of Regent University"). McDonnell will try to run as a "moderate," but don't believe it: he's a Pat Robertson Republican to the core. If that's what you like, then by all means support him. If Pat Robertson Republicanism is not your cup of tea, on the other hand, it looks like you'll be voting Democratic this November...whoever the Democratic nominee happens to be.
The purpose of Blue Virginia is to cover Virginia politics from a progressive and Democratic perspective. This is a group blog, founded by me (Lowell Feld), but now including several other progressive writers. I can't speak for the other "front pagers," but I consider myself a progressive in the tradition of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Tom Paine, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, JFK and RFK. As such, I believe in expanding opportunities to all, utilizing government as a tool to promote the general welfare and the common good, protecting the environment for ourselves and for future generations, and expanding the rights promised in our Constitution and Bill of Rights to all Americans.
I invite everyone to comment here, but please be aware that profanity, personal attacks, bigotry, and "trolling" are not allowed. Thanks, and enjoy!
