Way to go, Virginia! In the last two years, Dems took back the governorship and George ("Macaca") Allen's Senate seat. Now, the State Senate. Still to come: John Warner's Senate seat (certain to go to Democratic former governor, Mark Warner--no relation to John) and the state House of Reps.
Now my mom doesn't have to get into (as many) arguments with snippy clerks at the Virginia Beach Barnes & Noble about us sinful Blue Staters. It's clear the good folks of my former home are getting sick and tired of the state GOP and its intolerant ways. Thanks for hanging in there, Mom!
