Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Tuesday, February 13. Also, check out the video of Marco Rubio grabbing for a bottle of water, mid sentence, during his SOTU response last night. Maybe he needed to wash his mouth out, given all the Big Lies (and falsehoods, and tired old Teapublican talking points, and nonsense) he was telling, or the bull**** that was spewing out from his oral orifice, or both? Or maybe he's just wildly overrated? Regardless, total #FAIL by the Great GOP Non-White Hope.
