Don't mess with Virginia's next governor
It's not about what you did the past.
It's what you've done lately.
Trump's perennial opponents often focus on his past deeds.
It's the future that matters.
Sears sees that. And we'll see a lot more of her as the 2025 gubernatorial campaign gets going.

Biden presidency died in Kabul
Salena Zito notes four major points on President Biden's road downhill toward major defeats in Tuesday's election.
The bug-out from Afghanistan.
Nothing much can be said about the disaster, and Biden's team doesn't make leaving Afghanistan a big part of the election strategy.
American lives lost.
Afghan hopes destroyed.
All thanks to Joe Biden.
The people remember his failure.

End of "Codify Roe v. Wade"
No more "Codify Roe v. Wade."
To codify Roe v. Wade, Democrats have to hold their 50 seats and oust some Republican Senators.
From recent polling, that combination looks doubtful.
Sure, they could revive the talking point for 2024.
But if Republicans gain the majority this year, the 2024 Senate lineup looks better for Republicans gaining seats than Democrats getting back to 50 or over.
Republicans might even think about getting to 60. Then the new talking point will be "Filibuster-proof abortion ban."

Trying to minimize the impact of inflation by claiming other countries are having the same problem.
We'll fire our current politicians and put in people with different ideas.
It's up to other countries to take care of their own inflation problems.

For Democrats, Woe-vember is coming
The numbers keep getting worse for Democrats and the campaign season winds down.
Democrats thought Roe-vember would lead to victory.
Looks like the calendar has Woe-vember next instead.

Would Allahpundit approve?
It was by Da TechGuy
Good to see a link to a solid conservative friend.
Allahpundit has moved on, and Captain Ed is in charge at HotAir.
And he said change was in the air.
My new mission is to position Hot Air for the midterms and the 2024 election cycle as the, well, hottest place to find conservative perspectives, trenchant analysis, and aggregation of both breaking events and sharp takes in the commentariat.
We'll talk ill of you, alive or dead
It brought much discussion and pushback.
She keeps pushing.
“Speak no ill of the dead” is a weapon that’s leveled against the oppressed to silence them, to lionize oppressors, and to sanitize their history.
Thanks to her tweet, people will speak ill of her for many years to come.

Here he comes, on the FBI beat
Micky Dolenz, the last surviving member of the pre-fab four from the 1960s, has sued the FBI to get any files on the group released.
What did the FBI collect on the Monkees at the peak of their popularity?
When they had a lot of a peel.

Does anybody know what time it is
While nostalgia for the politics of yesteryear is generally misguided, nevertheless history offers inspiring examples of leaders who emerged in moments of crisis, men who knew What Time It Is and didn’t mind being called “extremists” for speaking the unpopular truth. Deo Vindice.

Democrats for Mountain Valley pipeline
It pushes the approval and construction of the Mountain Valley pipeline for natural gas.
Virginia Democrats hate that pipeline, and already ended plans for a pipeline through Augusta County.
But it will help Manchin's West Virginia voters.
Manchin has been trying to get the Mountain Valley Pipeline finished for well over a decade. His version of the proposed bill would give that to him and he could bring home all of the jobs and opportunities (such as LNG exports) that would come with it to his constituents. But this still isn’t close to being a done deal.
We'll see if progressives can swallow this part of the bill.

Recession now or recession later
They claim our current economy is not like a usual recession.
But they'd rather wait three months, and have a recession declared weeks before Election Day?
Seems more likely to doom Democrats.

Liz Cheney fusses that Fox isn't showing the committee when the other networks are.
Does the committee think giving the public no further options benefits their cause?

Only gas prices matter
Guess they haven't left the house in months.
The columnist plays the inflated price comparison - it was worse in 2008.
Forgetting that Republicans lost big that November after the price of gas spiked.
What will they say when the average price of gas stops $5.37/gallon - their inflation adjusted standard.
The second point is people had good feelings about the future economy - in 2021. About two dollars per gallon ago.
The latest surveys won't be so optimistic.
And don't blame President Biden and don't talk about drilling more.
Even if drilling more gave us low prices just three years ago.
Pipelines and drilling now won't drop prices now - it takes 16 months. Like the 16 months where we could have been drilling, but instead the Biden administration threw up regulations and shut down planned pipelines.
With prices so high, it's the Democratic election machine that's out of gas.

They replaced fetus with abort
The guy who invented it had longer range vision than the New York Times.
Today's Wordle - scheduled months ago - was to be FETUS.
Last week, the Times looked ahead and decided they'd better change that.
Which raises questions.
The Times bought the game in January. That's three months to review future games for words that might cause a problem.
Why didn't they catch it sooner?
How far in the future had the inventor gone when he sold the game?
Using fetus as an answer is bound to create controversy if you're doing something on the internet nobody reads. Much less a game you find becoming popular as you share it.
But don't worry, Wordle fans.
The Times aborted fetus before most people played today's game.

Their bench was aborted
Those aborted children, if given a chance, would be in their prime adult lives today.
Think Democrats could have found a decent presidential candidate out of all those?
Instead, they're stuck with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

Don't say pray
It's interesting to me - after weeks of blasting Florida's bill they call "Don't say gay" - that liberals are struggling with the Supreme Court arguments about teacher's leading prayer during public school activities.
They want "Don't say pray."
In prayer cases, the teachers praying forces unbelievers to join in against their will.
But in the Florida situation, the same liberals don't see the teachers forcing students to discuss being transgender against their will.
The teachers are supportive of student needs when it comes to transgender, but threatening in religious prayer.
For consistency, if you think there shouldn't be prayer in schools, then there shouldn't be transgender discussion in schools.
The authority figures may pressure young minds - even unknowingly - toward their view.
Those opposing Florida's law must not remember what it's like to be age 5-8. Who argued with their teacher in those years? You listened and followed their instruction.
It's been 50 years since I was in second grade at a parochial school, and my classmates from then still remember how the nun roosted the roost.
Students who can be taught about transgenderism can deal with a praying teacher.
If you give up talking transgenderism in schools, we can talk about what limits you want on prayer.

Blame to go around
And how many actors on all sides made mistakes.
That Ukraine has allowed itself to be used as a pawn against a powerful neighbor is in part the fault of Kyiv’s reckless and corrupt political class. But Ukraine is not a superpower that owes allies and client-states judicious leadership—that’s the role of the United States. And in that role, the United States has failed Ukraine. More broadly, the use of Ukraine as a goad against enemies domestic and foreign has recklessly damaged the failing yet necessary European security architecture that America spent 75 years building and maintaining.

Wanted: Justice for the losing side
Democrats are looking for a replacement, someone who can be on the bench for 30 years or more.
Someone who won't be tired of always being on the losing side.
Good luck finding the right person - to continually lose to the right.

Hole in their wall
They forgot about Chap Petersen.
On Monday, Chap Peterson, a moderate Democrat who joined with Republicans to force school re-opening last year, said in an email to the Fairfax County Parents Association that Fairfax’s school board “must define an ‘off ramp’ for mandatory masking. That means plainly stated metrics as well as a final deadline (e.g. Valentine’s Day). They should announce that immediately. The forced masking policy is going to end very soon, i.e. in a few weeks.

Youngkin shows the way
He won, against all odds. And he did it not by tacking to the squishy center and trying to please the Washington Post, but by ignoring the consultant consensus that he should disregard issues the people were concerned about and focus on the same losing platform that these hacks haven’t changed since 2005. And then he followed up by keeping his word.

Democratic vandalism in Richmond
Outgoing governor Ralph Northam handed him a credit-card style door key.
With holes from a dog bite.
Instead of a brass key to a door lock, outgoing Gov. Ralph Northam handed the incoming governor a plastic card – punctured by tooth marks from his Labrador puppy, Pearl.
Democrats trying to prevent transfer of power.
Start spreading the news.

If Virginia Democrats did so well, why'd they lose?
And Saturday, a Republican takes over as governor.
As Democrats leave power, they keep heaping praise on their work the past two years.
If Democrats did what the people wanted, why did they get voted out?
Their opinions don't match the facts on the ground.

Looking forward to Jan. 6, 2023
Republicans should be looking forward to next year.
When January 2023 rolls around, Republicans should take the House.
Nancy Pelosi - or her replacement - will hand the gavel over to (likely) Kevin McCarthy.
The investigations of Democratic malfeasance can begin.
There's plenty of targets available.
Let the Democrats have their fun, looking backward.
The future belongs to Republicans.

The saddest holidays
But it's really a lousy holiday.
Just like Labor Day.
Both are holidays that mark the end of a good season.
Even football can't save them.
The good things of the past year get wiped away.
