Uh, Voters Say Otherwise

As one might expect, the Roanoke Times editorial staff is not happy these day with our state government, with Republicans now being in control of the House, the Senate, and the governor's office, and with all of the above making real "a radically conservative wish list."

The part I don't get?

(Well, actually the part that I most don't get?)

"Virginians who, like the governor, hoped lawmakers would 'come together to make progress on the issues important to our 8 million people' are out of luck at the midway point of the session."

Pardon me, but who was it that put those radical conservative Republicans in charge of the House of Delegates (in overwhelming numbers) and the Senate (in soon-to-be overwhelming numbers) and the office of the head of state?

A question worth asking: Does the Roanoke Times speak for 8 million Virginians or an ever shrinking number of leftist neanderthals, like themselves, who, with each passing day, die and go off into that Great Beyond The Land of Gaia?

Elections speak volumes, fellas.  Time to ponder ...
