Governor (for one more day) Mark Warner (D-Va)
Two highlights for the outgoing governor:
1 - Sorry, Mark, he really was guilty as sin.
2 - As one of his last acts as Governor of the Commonwealth, Warner restored the voting rights of 3,414 convicted felons. We've got a long memory here in the Virginian Blogosphere, Mark. Add this to your huge tax increase despite running a budget surplus and you've given us several torpedoes to use on your 2008 campaign. Thanks Gov. Enjoy Williamsburg.

Murtha Gets An Earful
Political Teen has the video of a town hall meeting where Congressman John Murtha is unloaded on by Sergeant Mark Seavey - recently returned from Afghanistan. Murtha ignores the veteran - completely. Very respectful, there Mr. Murtha. Well said Sergeant Seavy.
Maryland Legislates Health Care At The Expense Of Walmart
Reason #7,234 why I don't live in Maryland.
Here's a short lesson in Capitalistic Market Forces. If a state increases the cost of doing business, prices will rise. If prices rise, consumers look elsewhere and buy less from local stores. If the revenues of a store decrease, it is able to employ less people. Less employed people means a higher dependence on state social services.
I'll only give you one guess as to the party behind the effort to singularly tax Wal-Mart. Go figure.
