Armstrong To Pick Up & Move

Just to keep drawing that meager paycheck from the people of Virginia.  Is it the fame?  The glory?  The nice things that will be written by the Roanoke Times?  I just don't get it:
Ward Armstrong chosen to run in new 9th
By Janelle Rucker, Roanoke Times

Rocky Mount -- Democratic party delegates from the newly redrawn 9th District unanimously nominated Ward Armstrong as their candidate for the House of Delegates race.

Thursday night's meeting was a first for the district party, which includes most of Franklin County, all of Patrick County and western Henry County.

It's the debt ceiling.  If only it weren't for that debt ceiling.

He hasn't a clue.

And he's in charge for another year and a half.

The Wall Street Journal on the depressing state of the economy:

"President Obama's economic advisers have been leaving one by one to return to private life, and who can blame them. They used the entire Keynesian, liberal playbook to spur economic growth, and this is the result. The intellectual dissonance must be demoralizing."
