Virginia Republicans determined to turn the state deep blue...
Edited on Thu Jan-18-07 12:21 AM by SaveElmer
The Virginia Republican Party has some of the most thickheaded, tineared politicians in the U.S.

From Speaker of the House of Delegates, on Delegate Hargrove who told blacks to get over slavery, and wondered if Jews should have to apologize for killing Jesus!!


In an interview Wednesday, Howell called Hargrove "a great American with a great heart."
"He would have done absolutely nothing to hurt anybody," Howell continued. "You ought to be ashamed of yourself. It's muckraker journalism at its worst." Howell added that The Washington Post was merely "looking for an excuse to write 'macaca' once again," a reference to the extensive coverage given to the gaffe by former senator George Allen (R) that contributed to his defeat in the fall.

2. Gosh I guess if you'd read the post...
You would know this is a new development, as apparently the Speaker has jumped on board to defend Hargrove...

3. My apologies.
I thought you just didn't do a search.
