Virginia News Headlines: Monday Morning

by: lowkell

Mon Feb 18, 2013 at 06:55:16 AM EST

Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, February 18.

*Obama's Plan Sees 8-Year Wait for Illegal Immigrants (That seems very long, but I'm sure Republicans will oppose even that compromise...)
*In D.C., it's fossil 'fools,' not fossil fuels ("35,000 people gather on the Mall to urge Obama to reject the Keystone pipeline and act on climate issues")
*When Republicans were problem-solvers
*Dear Senator McCain: STFU
*This Guy Wants What Job?? ("Cuccinelli's book confirms that he is unfit to serve in elected office.  He is a practitioner of politics at its lowest level of integrity. His political ancestors include John C. Calhoun, Joseph MacCarthy, and J. Lindsey Almond.  Hopefully, the Republicans will have a second look and nominate a true Conservative grounded in ethics and in touch with reality.")
*McDonnell: Mining is off the table for now
*Legislators begin road funding reconciliation talks
*Sources: McDonnell talks with Romney's finance chief
*Norquist says Virginia has spent less than 1 percent of budget surpluses on roads (If Grover Norquist said it, it must be false. And, according to PolitiFact, this statement is, indeed, "False.")
*Keep lawmakers out of doctors' offices
*Rift in Assembly is place, not party ("Lawmakers from Northern and Southwest Virginia have clashed over fixing up a southwest highway.")
*At This Point, I Might Leave LG Blank
*Virginia family, seeking clues to son's suicide, wants easier access to Facebook
*Holtby, Caps eventually crack ("Braden Holtby is stellar in goal, but teammates don't provide enough support as team's three-game winning streak ends.")

It Boggles the Mind (0.00 / 0)

Sen. Richard Saslaw of Fairfax County snorted after Wednesday's committee meeting. "They don't know what traffic is down there. They have no concept," he said.

Is Dick Saslaw trying to win an award for the stupidest utterances by a politician during a 2 month period?
