Column by NOT Lindsey Reynolds

By NOT Lindsey Reynolds

The DPVA website of today is, indeed, a thing of beauty. But it doesn't seem to be there for ALL Democrats -- only a few.

Witness -- three weeks after the Primaries -- that there is STILL no information about the campaigns for House of Delegates. No contact info for the candidates' websites. Not even a list of their names.

I have long suspected -- known, actually -- that the DPVA is a wholly-owned subsidiary of a small group of self-interested pols. Certainly, there seems to be very little concern for regaining a House majority. Most certainly not if that means nominating candidates who aren't hand-picked by the DINO's in the inner circle.

But not to even LIST our candidates. Inexcusable.

We might as well be living in the days of Tammany Hall...

The DPVA is supposed to be about winning majorities? Really? Someone better let them know that, and quick-like. It's going to be big news.

Don't worry, Russ Potts is trying to turn the RPVA into the same kind of system. Then maybe the Dems will be in a majority.

DINOS? What DINOS? where are the DINOS?

DINO stands for "Democrat in name only."

Republicans for years have talked about RINOs, so this is the D alternative. Catchy, right?

I am not sure of the true role of The Democratic Party of Virginia. They are hidden in offices on a Main St. office Bldg. in Richmond. What actually goes on there is a huge mystery. I think they raise some money and spend it on themselves. As for assisting candidates...what candidates...there are so few.

Tamany Hall? Unlike the DVPA, Tamany Hall actually won elections.

Where are your detailed updates on the Dirty Dozen??? If you guys are going to get any credibility back, you need to start by keeping your promises!!! I'm going to tune out if you keep promising things that don't materialize.

For those of you critical of NLS, open your own blog and beat him/her to the punch on analysis of these races. Goodness knows several others have done so.

It's true, the DPVA site is a thing of beauty. But so is Lindsey Reynolds! :)

Ben, here's some Shakespeare we can agree on ... perhaps we can agree on Lord Byron as well?

You're comparing a bad webmaster to Tammany Hall? Are you kidding me?

One is political corruption of the worst kind. Voter fraud, intimidation, bribes...

One is someone at the DPVA doesn't know how to use Microsoft Frontpage.

If a bad webpage is your only proof of corruption in the party, you need a reality check. Or learn how to write a better column.
