The Times-Dispatch Goes Completely Insane


They really go off the deep end with this one. I can't even begin to fathom how they could publish this type of mindless, childish drivel.

The party's problem in wooing the electorate is not that it needs a new dress; the problem is that it is a nag and a scold and a snob. Voters don't like that. Or, to borrow from the title of a popular self-help book: They're just not that into you.

Amazingly, the Virginia Pilot has a piece that seems to address the very kind of inane, adolescent name-calling that we see from the Dispatch. Coincidence???

Far be it from us to lecture either major political party on strategy, but some high-ranking Republican — Attorney General Jerry Kilgore or U.S. Sen. George Allen would do — ought to evaluate whether this approach is serving the party well.

Our guess is that the GOP apparatus does the party more harm than good when it devotes more energy to name-calling than problem-solving.
