Since they lost interest, moved on, and generally did not sign up as delegates for this convention, along with the fact that even large…"
"So in order to be "grassroots" we must blindly support the party in all cases, even when they blatantly disregard our will and our values? That's quite the standard. I think this is exactly representative of the elitist point of view…"
"It's stunning to me that the SCC would want to create a rift in the party of what is ostensibly a personal battle. Because those in the party wanting to pander to the big-government entitlement constituency of Northern Virginia, they have…"
"Dear God, let this be over.
If Jeff is unseated on Saturday, and if you truly want to elect Republicans for the next four years, I would highly recommend that on April 5th, we never speak of this again.
Any other action than dropping this rediculous…"

I've e-mailed McDonnell alright. To tell him…"
