    The New York Post reports that billionaire Senator Corrizine (D-NJ) and his friends are sending lots of money to Virginia Democratic Lt. Gov. Tim Kaine in his bid for governor.

    Guess it will give a whole new meaning to 'South Jersey' if Kaine wins.

    The FAIRFAX County Chamber of Commerce endorsed KILGORE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hell just froze over. [​IMG]

    "RICHMOND, Oct. 6 -- The political arm of the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce endorsed Republican gubernatorial candidate Jerry W. Kilgore on Thursday, an unexpected show of support from a key business group in the state's most populous county.

    The announcement came the same day that Kilgore picked up the endorsement of the National Rifle Association, whose backing he hopes will help energize voters in rural Virginia, where gun rights are highly valued."

    Kilgore's gonna win, and any friend of Corizine's and Jersey Democrats is no political friend of mine. But Kilgore's arrogant as hell as clearly shown by his treatment of the VCDL and his staff's denigration of it's president, and that kind of arrogance is only gonna get worst once it's legitimized by his winning (basic child rearing 101).

    After thinking about it a bit, I'm not of the opinion that either one is gonna screw things up too badly though (or be allowed to), and I really can't vote for Kaine simply because that's my kneejerk reaction and way to thumb my nose at Kilgore and his staff. (If Kaine wants conservative votes re: the 2nd, he needs a longer history of supporting it methinks, and not groups against it ala the MM debacle. His stated position however is an acceptable one to me and I think others too, but one that needs to be verified with a more history of walking that walk.)

    So I'm going with my consicence and dismissing both of them, and writing in Phillip Van Cleave in thier place.

    Take that Kilgore.
