The GOP has followed its extremist fringe off the deep end, leaving the rest of us back in the reality based world, and befuddled. Their strategists warned them not to do this, but it appears that to the GOP, unhinged fringe issues are like catnip.
It's curious that the very candidates who complain that the Republic may be at stake unless President Obama is defeated, suddenly cite family issues and "not being ready" when it comes time to fight for the things they believe in.
The Post story included the what, who, where and how of basic journalism. What was missing was the why. Why is sea level rising and eroding the beach in Chincoteague?
Virginia Democrats are at a crossroads: do we want to continue to live in the "Old Virginny," or will we summon the will to make the fundamental changes needed to compete in the "New Virginny"? That choice is now up to us.

It is clear Teresa possessed neither the verbal intelligence nor the initiative to mastermind a plan to murder the victims -- her mental health alone should grant her exemption. This is an unconscionable failure of the system.
What I continue to find shocking is that the message, tactics, and unrelenting anger of the Republican Party are becoming echoed and displayed by so many Americans who call themselves "pro-Israel."
What better way to put a face and voice to the increasingly regional, homogenized, sophophobic GOP than to nominate Haley Barbour for president?
Not long ago, I traveled to Henry County, Virginia. Although the First Lady has roots in eleven states, her ancestry is most heavily concentrated in this vicinity. Fully one-quarter of her heritage traces to this region.
In the wake of the brutal murder of University of Virginia student Yeardley Love, now is the time to ask ourselves how such tragedies can be prevented.
