LEXINGTON, Va. — Clare Perry considers herself a Democrat. Grayson Pearce is a Republican. She’s from Richmond, and he's from Virginia Beach. Despite holding opposing political values, they both have the same question: What is the matter with Virginia?

In particular, what’s wrong with its politics?

A few months ago, in a cascade of disgraces both Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring admitted to wearing blackface, then Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax was accused of sexual assault by two women.

Ralph Northam got in trouble for the blackface. Justin Fairfax got accused of sexual assault by two women.

Nothing in the news on them.

Modern journalism is all about deciding which facts the public shouldn't know because they might reflect badly on Democrats. - Jim Treacher

We can assume that it is now OK to wear blackface and sexually assault women. Who would have thunk it?
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

It's Okay If You're A Democrat.

Just say you're "Protecting Abortion" and the Left will line up on their "Presidential Kneepads" to offer their "services".
You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.
