He helped prove that being a businessman is not good preparation for government leadership.

Rump showed that too. But he was such a bad businessman that he might have allowed some doubt about whether some competent businessman would be better.

Nope. Now we know.

I don’t think a skeevy casino would have fit into tony Alexandria and Arlington. Virginia doesn’t need to skim money from desperate people. Leave that for sad, poor communities like the Gulf Coast.

Youngkin won on some racist shit and also by pretending he never heard of Trump.

With the complicit help of both Virginia media, and WaPo.

Also did not help that the maps were changed that year, but considering the Dems got both houses again this go around, I figure the maps have adjusted again.

Also republican gov in VA is traditional after Dems flip whitehouse. We'll come to our senses by 2025.

All because Terry MacCaullife was such a clinton area turd and bumbled a sentence in the debate.

Even this demon sheep ad didn't derail him or his inane red fleece vest:

bullshit. All because the press propped up Trumpkin and too many Virginians thought NoVa would save us.

Meantime in Maryland, they're getting the big bucks from those marijuana taxes, and they also have a governor with a business background. Go figure. It's like Virginia is Maryland's evil twin or as New Hampshire is to Vermont, Virginia is to Maryland.

Yeah, that's kinda a;lways been An Thang, too, iirc -- they're (MD/VA) competitive mirror-twins. Or something. But they do seem to have the "Opposites" deal going on, low-key. \ffs

Unfortunately, Youngkin will be in the thick of it if Trump drops/strokes out of the race.

If Trump manages to get to the convention Glenn is a serious contender for the VP spot.

Shit!

He does not seem aware of this, yet.

Yes I’m shallow AF, but when I saw my hot-dad-in-well-fitted-polo Governor on the scene of the Key Bridge disaster part of me thanked him for not wearing fleece. And our nights are still quite bracing thank you!

Glenn Younkin can eat a bag of salted rat dicks for how he bait and switched voters in Virginia.

I don't live in Virginia, but from where I live I could smell a Republican con. If you were fooled, you were not paying attention. Stupid electorate, gets stupid and dangerous policies.

Many don't even know there's an election just a year after the nation.

Terry McCaullife was weak sauce.

Yup. Vote for a Republican, elect a fascist. There is no difference anymore.

Give me a fucking break. Virginia voters saw him and said, "Yeah, we want some of that." Well, they got what they wanted. Don't hold your breathe that they'll elect anyone different in two years.
