Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Va Dems Hit the Big Time

I just saw this article on Yahoo News about the war of words between the Miller and Webb campaigns.
Its great to see our state getting such great news coverage.

Also, today's RTD has this article on the new Webb mailer of "Miller the Job Killer". Isn't that old news though?

    Whoever you are dubya, that is incredibly immature. Why don't you stop being a troll right now and instead try to contribute something to the conversation. All you are proving here is that there is a great hypocrisy in calling conservatives mean-spirited. Stay on topic please.

    Anyways, this whole debate over the cartoon could really put the skids on the Democratic primary. If the Democrats in Virginia want to have any chance at beating George Allen, they will need a high turnout, and I am guessing that, at least in part because of the Miller cartoon, it still will not be very high.

    That's a hard hitting line you've got going there cr uva. Calling someone an immature troll. Dang! Dubya's probably close to tears right now because of you. Meanie...

    There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.

    Heh, you are one to talk anon 2:04. You cannot even attach a pseudo to your comment, instead making it impossible to determine who is saying it. You really showed me.

    One of my favorite things about most of the Virginia blogs and commenters is that they have avoided the DU attitude of "attack first, reason later", even those blogs which I generally disagree with. I enjoy healthy debate, not "dubyas" and "Pastor Johns". They add nothing in terms of substance, and turn rational discourse to irrational muckraking. dubya posted what is clearly a personal attack, and I was just calling a spade a spade.

    Needless to say, this thread of comments has gone completely off track.

    I just looked in the phone book for cr uva and guess what, it's not there! Criticize anonymity while writing anonymously. No, you guys aren't hypocrites............. What a intellectually and integrity challenged joke you are. Were we still in middle school you would be considered a sissy. And that's being nice. And don't think for a moment that I'm disparaging anyone's orientation. I know some gay people who would happily kick your @$$..... In a loving manner of course.

    anon,

    I'll take you up on that @$$ kicking. Don't you be picking on a good conservative. If cr uva likes to rationalize his/her reasons for believing what he/she puts forth then so be it. Maybe that's all he/she has, rationalization.... Stop picking on him/her.

    What a great comment section.

    I agree Mr. Gophokie, this is a great comment section!

    The point now is how do we work together to achieve important goals. And one such goal is a democracy in Germany.

    Simple, throw out the socialists in their government.

    It's in our country's interests to find those who would do harm to us and get them out of harm's way.

    This is typical. How hokieboy, would you throw out the socialists from another country's government?
