Clearly you are wrong.
I live in Hanover County, referenced in UncleFester's WaPost article. Cantor support DROPPED PRECIPITOUSLY from his landslide in 2012. It certainly wasn't Dem support he lost.

It's a win for the hapless Virginia Repubs.
Virginia was a reliable Red state when I moved here in the 90's, but with the growth of NOVA, the populace has voted for Dems for state office, US Senator, and Pres here in the last 3-4 years.
If you love in NOVA, maybe you SHOULD pay att...

I couldn't disagree more. I've been managing developers for 20 years and would LOVE it if I could be like some of my guys: very few meetings, get handed designs, get to do the creative things with a language to solve a problem while rocking out with their headphones on. Of course, they don't make ...

I wasn't one of the fortunate ones that had family or friends that were Tiger fans. I grew up primarily in South Carolina in a household totally devoid of any kind of sports fanaticism. My parents both worked alot and we didn't watch much TV when we were home...strictly blue collar.

| Political Talk|| re: Webb (D-Va) won't seek re-election - chrome_daddy on 2/10/11 at 9:33 am|
From my view in Virginia, Webb was only elected due to the growing discontent against the Bush administration and all the wars, which he promised to fight to put an end to. The NoVa libs put him in office. Allen was seen as a reliable party-line Bush supporter, which hurt him in the end and probab...

A very common runner's injury when you increase mileage rapidly is that your kneecap begins to rub stuff and it really freakin hurts. I've found that if you do lots of leg lifts 1-2 times a week, to strengthen your quads it will prevent this.
