           This shit makes me weep for America.
        \_ I didn't see any mention of the NRA on that page.  Did you mean "FU

10/7    In practice, how long are HIGH SCHOOL transcript kept? I'm asking
        because I'm wondering if people can dig up my shady past.
        I was a bad kid.
        \_ I would doubt that they are ever destroyed. What would you
           do about it in any case? Try not to worry too much about
           things you have no control over.

        \_ is he running for pres yet
           \_ Nobody would vote for a pres candidate with such a bad taste.

11/2    California Uber Alles is such a great song
        \_ Yes, and it was written about Jerry Brown. I was thinking this
           as I cast my vote for Meg Whitman. I am independent, but I
           typically vote Democrat (e.g., I voted for Boxer). However, I
           can't believe we elected this retread.
           \_ You voted for the billionaire that ran HP into the ground

        Kennedy had an affair with a Nazi spy. Elenore Roosevelt
        was a lesbian!!!  Nerdy looking Ben Franklin was a suspected
        killer and quite a ladies man. WTF???
        \_ Did it mention anything about Washington and the cherry tree?

        Two contrasting remarks:

        San Jose and San Francisco... not a surprise. Northern Cal
        is still the best place to live.
        \_ What are you talking about? San Jose was 6th (above SF) and
           SF was 15th. If you rate "best place to live" as "best place
           to find a job" (which I don't) neither of these qualify and

5/28    Washington Post Correction:
        The May 27 editorial "The President's Pick" incorrectly referred
        to Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor as the daughter of
        "immigrant" parents. Judge Sotomayor's parents were not immigrants
        but were born in Puerto Rico after passage of a 1917 law that
        automatically conferred U.S. citizenship on island-born residents.

2/27    CA unemployment increases from 9.3% to 10.1% for Jan
        \_ Good thing the legislature passed the biggest tax increase in
           history!  That should solve it.
           \_ because cutting taxes has done such a great job so far!
                \_ it has.. giving mortgages to poor folks did us in
                   \_ 100% horseshit.

youthgonewild Discuss the results of the Virginia election as results come in. The gove rnor's race is especially important, but there are also races for Lieute nant Governor and Attorney General. View Replies To: slowhand520 I don't want to celebrate prematurely, but it looks like the pollsters ma y soon go out of business based on their recent records. View Replies To: Dolphy The Virginia elections site does not seem to break down results by county . For all I know Fairfax h as already reported and is skewing the results. View Replies To: navysealdad I was just looking at the same site, it looks pretty depressing but there 's no indication of where these votes are coming from so it's really imp ossible to draw conclusions yet. View Replies To: Dolphy I grew up in Virginia, but haven't lived there for umpteen years. I can t ell you that Northern Virginia is comparable to New York city and the th e rest of their respective states. Huge, liberal population center versu s smaller more conservative population centers that cover most of the st ate's land mass. View Replies To: crasher Probably, but I don't know the pattern of Virginia vote counting. If it i ncludes all the absentees, then yes, it should be over. There is no official breakout of where the votes are coming from, but I would make a GUESS that early results are from lower popula tion areas which tend to be more Republican. On the other hand, in Northern Virginia, which has a very high population density and tends Democratic, they have electronic voting machines in m ost (maybe all) precincts. It seems that it ought to be quick to tabulat e and verify electronically counted votes. View Replies To: skaterboy GOPers always blame it on the candidate. We just can't face up to the fac t that the lefties are gaining ground on us. View Replies To: Brilliant Northern Virginia is the "inside the beltway crowd." Probably 50% or more of the Washington Post staff and 35% or more Federal employees live in Northern Virginia. View Replies To: Torie It is just interesting to watch the data change as events change. Gives y ou a sense of how a low volume, not yet mature, market reacts to events. View Replies To: crasher This race has been over for a half an hour now. Earl won Chesterfield county by 15 percent and lost to Warner by 4 percen t Kilgore won by 8 percent. Kaine won and unless republicans stop beating eachother up instead of uni ting we will get our asses kicked across the board. But he ran the death penalty ad ag ainst kaine and republicans ran from him. Do you think the dems are goin g to be running from Corzine because of his campaign. There are too many republicans looking to send a message but in the meantime we get a liberal instead of a good c onservative. they could all be Democrat areas for all we kno w I'd like to know where the reporting isn't coming from. Does Virginia hav e a history of reporting certain precints last until they know how many votes they need to win? last Disclaimer: Opinions posted on Free Republic are those of the individual posters and do not necessarily represent the opinion of Free Republic or its management.

The staff is planning to do several stories on this and not just one big article. For days now, the NYT has been chasing down the rumors of what the LA TIMES may be investigating about Carter but didn't have much success. Finally, this afternoon, the NYT made some headway, at least enough to rush out a story.
