Cuccinelli Proved Conventions can be Hijacked. Primaries are the Only Somewhat Honest Nomination Process

Ken Cuccinelli has said you can win a Convention by bringing more people. And we saw that in action in Richmond in 2009. And Cuccinelli’s tenure as Attorney General gave the GOP a black eye as the most activist AG ever to hold that position (until Mark Herring, the current AG). He made it easy […]

The 5 Divisions Within the Republican Party of Virginia

I have been pondering the different factions within the Virginia Republican Party. We banter about terms like RINO (Republican in Name Only) and Conservative along with the sub terms like Social Conservative and Fiscal Conservative to presumably identify the “brand” of Conservative we are dealing with. And to confuse things even further, we have made […]

Politicians’ external behaviors do not prove whether they have a strong moral core

August 18, 2016
