Just clearing some things I could have posted yesterday.
Gillespie Ran a JEB! Campaign in a Trump World
Conservatives were told that candidates like Ken Cuccinelli spelled certain doom, that the answer was a moderate establishment candidate. Tonight we now know that that candidate Ed Gillespie did worse than Ken Cuccinelli did. And Cuccinelli performed better without the support of the Virginia GOP establishment.
Ed Gillespie is certainly a good fellow. But his campaign used messages from 2004 and tactics from 1996. It seemed to exist outside of the ferocious upheavals of the modern polarized political world.
In Virginia, Ex-Felons Voted For The First Time After Regaining Their Rights
“I now felt like a citizen. I now felt like I will make a difference in some kind of way,” said LaVaughn Williams, who voted for the first time on Tuesday.
Northam Win Fueled By Money From Obama-Backed Group, Steyer, Bloomberg
Prominent liberals combined to pour millions into Virginia to support Dem candidate Ralph Northam
A group backed by former President Barack Obama and headed by former Attorney General Eric Holder poured $1 million into the Virginia gubernatorial race in support of Democrat Ralph Northam, who on Tuesday defeated Republican Ed Gillespie.
Oh, Here We Go: Hillary Taking Credit For Democratic Wins Last Night
First, it was to send a strong message to Trump, he animated the base to levels not seen since 2008, which was the year Obama won in a landslide win. With those figures, the GOP was going to get trashed.
Yet, do you know which person had nothing to do with it, but is attempting to take credit for it anyway: Hillary Clinton. It didn’t take long for her majesty to try and bathe in the afterglow of the Democrats’ wins last night in Virginia and New Jersey
Perez Yells During Speech: ‘The New Democratic Party is Back’
[CtH: Wow. This is as pathetic as the absurd screaming at the sky non-events.]
What the Exit Polls Can Tell Us about the Virginia GOP’s Disaster
The fairest and most accurate critique about Ed Gillespie is that his 2017 campaign was neither fish nor fowl. He had too much history as an Establishment insider to drive up big turnout among Trump’s voters, but his campaign’s autumn messages focusing on sanctuary cities, gangs, Confederate statues and felon voting rights were too “Trumpified” to win over those moderate suburban soccer moms.

Dems Divided: Liberals Heckle Ralph Northam At His Own Election Night Party, Forcing Him Off Stage
[CtH: Yo, Perez. This is the same old rude and divisive Democratic Party.]
Republicans suddenly fear disastrous 2018
Clinton was such a horrible candidate that distaste for her may have held back the swing of college educated whites towards the Democrats,” Wilson said. “If that’s true, it’s a real problem and one that Republicans must address prior to 2018.”
House Dem’s new demand: Impeach Trump by Christmas
I now announce that before Christmas, there will be a vote on the chief inciter of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, sexism and ethnocentrism,” he said on the House floor, adding that he prayed the United States will “continue to reject what the inciter in chief, Donald J. Trump has been causing this country to have to endure.”
[CtH: Trump isn’t racist, sexist, or any of the rest, though it is easy to make a compelling case that those who accuse him of these things certainly are. So what exactly have we had to “endure”? Vile, slanted, dishonest media reporting, definitely. Shrieking, foul-mouthed celebrities, absolutely. Democrat politicians doing what they’ve been doing for years — i.e., damning Republicans without coming up with anything constructive of their own. But Trump? What’s Trump actually done besides shoot off his mouth in tweets (which I personally find funny as hell)?]
