Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Thursday, October 25. Also, check out the video, in which Gov. Bob McDonnell (R, last I checked - same party as George Allen) argues strongly that the sequestration deal was absolutely necessary to avoid "default of the greatest nation on earth," which is why so many Republicans - but not crazy George Allen - supported it!
