Piling On the GOP

Geez, isn't there any editorial writer out there who will befriend the House GOP caucus?

The Danville paper says it hopes "the General Assembly comes to its collective senses when it returns to Richmond. Anyone who drives a car can see the problem - and should hope our political leaders will understand the best solution."

The Lynchburg News & Advance complains that for "at least the second time in the past three years, partisan ideology has trumped the voice of reason in the Virginia General Assembly."

And editorialists at the Virginian-Pilot, who advocate more transportation spending, urge voters to corner their legislators in the next two weeks and give them an earful: "If the party cannot find a way to bridge its ideological rifts, then voters need to perform a purge at the 2007 elections. “My way or the highway” works in monarchies, but not democracies... After weeks of listening to themselves talk, your representatives in Richmond need to hear from you."

Hopefully voters will speak up and legislators will talk openly and in detail about the transportation network they envision.. it's not just about the dollars.

Now, now. The Times Dispatch editorial page is printing the House GOP's press releases verbatim. So is the Wall Street Journal, for that matter.
