My fellow blogger Tom White has stated things well as far as the health care victory is concerned.  But I had to add my two cents worth!

The Virginia victory reminds me of the old Frank Sinatra song that went something like they laughed at the Wright Brothers and Thomas Edison and me but I had the last laugh!  The Cuccinelli suit, the first one filed, was laughed pretty much to scorn.  Yeah, pretty much.  The legal heads that roam about the left wing media basically declared it DOA and political.  Wait until the court rules…

Well, the court did rule!  Guess what – the Virginia legal team WON!

But, the unsung hero here is Del. Robert G. Marshall of Manassas, who introduced the Health Care Freedom Act.  Another is the General Assembly and Governor Bob McDonnell for passing and signing it.  (A similar bill on the ballot in Missouri got 70% of the vote in a state referendum!)  I did not expect it to pass.  But it did; it gave the state the legal standing to fight Obamacare in the courts.

Now everybody wants to know:  Where does Ken Cuccinelli go from here?  Chris Cillizza at the Washington Post asks:  Senator Cuccinelli?  Governor Cuccinelli?  I think he’s great what he is doing right now.  But there was the loudest applause at the VA Tea Party Convention for the Attorney General when he spoke.  He will be a national figure. Maybe someday, say 1/20/2025, me, Tom White and Rusty McGuire will be at the inauguration of Ken Cuccinelli as the first President from.  Or maybe a constitutionalist President like Ron Paul will appoint Cuccinelli to the Supreme Court.  Wouldn’t it be great to see the left howl over that?

But I am confident our attorney general will continue to mind the store and do the nation’s and the people’s bidding. He, like all other office holders and judges, needs our prayers.

    Cuccinelli has been the only public servant so far to attempt to hold that abject, abominable climate fraud, Michael Mann, accountable for his actions.

    Mann’s fraudulent use of taxpayer funds to conduct “research” that provided predetermined results that Mann’s pals and flunky’s wanted to see has been the most outrageous scientific scandal in a century – and Mann has yet to answer for it.

    Mann’s pleas to Dumbocrats to protect him from “facing the music” are increasingly shrill, but increasingly useless: Mann needs to answer for this criminal mischief.

    Everyone else who conducted scientific fraud on the taxpayer dole has had to do it

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
