OK, let me see whether I have this straight. The Commonwealth of Virginia has moved from deep red to purple to light blue, and we are all giddy with delight that Democrats are making deep inroads into the New South.
The Democratic Governor appears in his medical school yearbook on a page that includes a picture of a man in deep all-over black face and someone in a KKK outfit, and his defense is that the picture is not of him, although he did wear black face in a Michael Jackson competition which he won because he could moonwalk.
The Lieutenant Governor, a rising Democratic star and a Black man, is accused by a Claremont Scripps senior professor, who got her BA at Princeton and her MA and PhD at Chicago, of physically forcing her to perform oral sex on him when they met doing political work.
The Attorney General, also a Democrat and third in line for the Governorship, allows as how, yes, he appeared in black face back in the day.
And the fourth in line for the Governorship is the Republican leader of the Virginia Senate. Nobody expects anything better of Republicans, so who knows what will surface about him?
Do I have that right?
What to do? Go with the moonwalker, the sexual assaulter, the black faced Attorney General, or give up on the entire state and try to make up the electoral votes by registering the 1.4 million men and women who just got their voting rights back in Florida.
Lordy, no one said politics was easy.
