Can we borrow your dog?

West Virginia governor Jim Justice made headlines by lofting his dog into the air as a speech ended - and suggesting the critics "kiss her hiney."
Can Virginia's Glenn Youngkin borrow the dog for his critics?

Looks like they made it up

Earlier today, the news came out Barry Manilow wanted him music off Spotify.
Manilow came out hours later, saying the idea wasn't from him.
Looks like some rumormonger is going to have a cold Weekend in New England.

Wanted: Justice for the losing side

Justice Stephen Breyer reportedly plans to retire soon.
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

Virginia Democrats claim the Senate will be their brick wall to stop Gov. Glenn Youngkin's agenda.
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.
Quite a large hole in the Democrats' wall.

Youngkin shows the way

Governor Youngkin's start has impressed Kurt Schlichter.
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.

Parents rule, bureaucrats drool

Gov. Youngkin gives parents a choice.
Bureaucrats don't like that.
Thanks to the governor, parents get their say next week.

The Blue wail

Democrats are having a hard time understanding transfer of power to Republicans.
Let the 2023 campaign commercials right themselves.

It's going to be a fun four years

Blue Virginia collects the reactions of Virginia Democrats to Gov. Glenn Youngkin's first day in office. 
It's going to be so enjoyable to read their reactions as the days go on.

Democratic vandalism in Richmond

Gov. Glenn Youngkin arrived at the governor's mansion before taking office at noon.
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?

Virginia now has a Republican majority in the House.
And Saturday, a Republican takes over as governor.
As Democrats leave power, they keep heaping praise on their work the past two years.
But really.
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

Democrats are looking back to last year.
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

Most people get off work New Year's Day.
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. 
I saved a lot of money at my local Food Lion - now my number is back to zero.
We've got the long slog of winter weather in January and February to make it through until it starts to warm in March.
And we have the sunlight we need after work hours.
