Roanoke Times on Jeff Frederick

The Roanoke Times has an editorial on Jeff Frederick today. According to them, Virginians need the comedic distraction of RPV Chairman Frederick during these tough economic times. Money quote:
The economy is in full-blown recession. Home values are dropping. The commonwealth is shedding jobs. State and local services are being cut to the bone. During these dark days, Virginians needs a distraction. They need the comical antics of state GOP Chairman Jeff Frederick.

Some Republican leaders have had it with Frederick, who took over the party less than a year ago. On his watch, Democrats have fared well. Barack Obama carried the state, Mark Warner won an open Senate seat, and the Ds now have a majority of the commonwealth's congressional delegation.

After listing five Frederick-ian blunders, the editorial concludes:

Virginians need a laugh these days more than ever. The GOP shouldn't deny them Frederick.

Yeah, this guy is gold. Gold for Democrats; gold for laughter.

I'm all for Frederick staying on RPV. Awesome. Let them tire themselves out with in-fighting and sad, tired missives with racist, homophobic, xenophobic overtones. If we're going to get anything done, it'll be with a nice, weak Republican party.

DEMS 2K9!!

I expect to be asked in the upcoming weeks what I think about this. My response is that I don't give a damn. All I care about is taking back the 5th District. I couldn't care less who's in charge in Richmond - it doesn't make a dime's worth of difference to anybody.
