Virginia News Headlines: Saturday Morning

by: lowkell

Sat Nov 17, 2012 at 06:54:35 AM EST

Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Saturday, November 17.

*Petraeus' Testimony Makes McCain and Other Conspiracy Theorists Look Like Idiots
*GOP Rep Admits CIA Approved U.N. Ambassador's Talking Points On Libya  
*Romney becomes persona non grata to a shellshocked Republican party (And the next one who should become personal non grata is off-the-deep end, John "GET OFF MY LAWN" McCain.)
*Stop scapegoating Susan Rice (The attacks on Rice represent Republican illogic, hypocrisy and nastiness at their most extreme.)
*Congressional leaders say they are confident 'fiscal cliff' can be averted
*Federal cuts would take heavy toll on small contractors
*Why purple Va. is starting to look rather blue
*It's hard to be over-the-top when criticizing voting delays
*Local leaders indicate support for Watkins' transportation funding plan
*6th District Republican Committee "instructs" Bob Goodlatte to oppose John Boehner as House Speaker (Hahahahahaha.)
*After long lines of problems at polls, a long line of questions
*Warner, Connolly Introduce Voting Reform Legislation
*Virginia Board Stands Firm Against Cuccinelli ("Despite pressure from the attorney general, Board of Juvenile Justice refuses to ax protections for LGBT youth")
*Group planning to file pardon petition to Virginia governor by next week
*Bolling: Tuesday's lesson is the GOP needs to connect with moderates
*House panel berates MWAA board (I've been saying for years that MWAA's no-bid contracts and cronyism were unacceptable, even corrupt. Nice to see Congress finally catching up...)
*William H. Wood, editor and advocate for civility in politics, dies
*Metro adds screens to kiosks to show train delays

P.S. Oh, and the most important story of the day: Who Killed Hostess Brands and Twinkies? (Short answer: it's the corporate management, stupid.)

P.P.S. Also see The Iron Dome, Press Bias, and Israel's Lack of Strategic Thinking.
