The Screwtape Letters II
Despite some very public divisions and gaffe’s over the last week in Virginia Democrats finally got a victory they were looking for and more. It very much looks like they will manage to take back a state legislature.
BREAKING: Democrats are IN THE LEAD to pick up the VA House of Delegates. They’ve picked up 12 GOP seats & currently lead in 6 (!!!) more. Whoa.

Some of the races are so close it might take a few days to see if it happens but if it does so be it. Although I suspect the people of Virginia will quickly find out that no amount of running as a moderate will keep a democrat from voting like a socialist.
Additionally Democrats have won races in CT and NJ as well as keeping the Mayor’s seat in New York City, but there seems to be something missing.
No matter how hard you look on the net there doesn’t seem to be any sign of conservatives or even establishment republicans breaking out in tears, making pathetic videos on youtube, rioting and toppling statues, torching limos or running around in hats shaped like genitals loudly proclaiming that (insert candidate name here) is not MY mayor, or representative or governor.
That’s because whatever their faults (and the do-nothing GOP congress is exhibiting plenty of them) the GOP and conservatism remain the venue of civilized adults even when we lose.
I’ll be honest I’m disappointed about the results but at least that means we didn’t have to be treated to the spectacle of Democrats loudly protesting or making a scene of themselves oh wait…
Northam won the biggest Dem victory in VA since 1985 and was interrupted by protesters because Democrats https://t.co/llMNzfNZyH

Yes you read that right, the left can’t even win without protesting and heckling people, even their own victorious candidate.
But it’s their victory party and they can cry if they want to. Of course the real crying will be done by the people of Virginia and elsewhere once they rediscover the joys of being governed by Democrats unrestrained by any non rioting GOP checks and balances.
Of course if the people of Virginia and elsewhere have decided they wanted to vote for that uniquely socialistic Democrat combination of tax raising, budget busting, business killing regulations, lax law enforcement and using the courts to force the will of the SJW class on pain of destruction on the people rest assured our friends in the Democrat party will be delighted to give it to them good and hard.
In fact if they didn’t want that it, too bad, in a republic you always get the government you deserve, and boy are these people gonna get it, whether they like it or not.
As I have no sexual secrets of rich liberals to sell or the sponsorship of a national pizza company I have to make my buck by going places and doing interviews all the time hoping people like it enough to pay for it.
