Last Saturday I was at an American Legion post in Woodbridge, VA, with Bob McDonnell.
I was favorably disposed. He was speaking to an audience of veterans, and he sounded like a politician talking to veterans. The only real ovation came at the end of the speech where he promised to do his best to get the Federal government to respect the 10th Amendment.
So here is news, via Virginia Virtucon, that the left is trying to make a campaign issue out of McDonnell's 1989 thesis. This, when all of the school records of the good president are mysteriously mysterious mystery (for which inane writing Stacy may shoot me).
Why do any readers care fig #1 about the VA gubernatorial race? This and the NJ race are crucial to keeping the momentum alive going into the 2010 campaign season. Too, McDonnell is himself a veteran and may help build consensus at the State level to push through some of the badly needed reforms to combat:
- The permanent political class. Read: aristocracy
- 95% devaluation of the dollar since the Federal Reserve was created to "stabilize the value of the dollar".
- Malignant entitlement tumor growth.
Any one of those three bullet points should be causing Americans to freak out. And yet the media has chosen to focus on a 1988 thesis. Is there an overtly perverse joy in the Alinsky Rule #5 exercise of sticking it to the conservative when they were too incurious to make BHO's academic work an issue, on wonders?
Flog me gently, at a medium pace.
