I'm currently a man without a political party, so if you hear of any good ones, let me know. I used to be a Democrat, but I got chased out by the labor unions and trial lawyers and the National Organization for Women. So I became a Republican, but I was chased out by Moral Majority, corporate immorality and the voices that echo in the heads of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. That left me for a while as a Libertarian. That was a pretty good fit, since they hate everything and, for the most part, so do I. But then came along this cat from Kentucky, who's basically a Libertarian running as a Republican.

Allowing developers to not pay their share is a mistake To the editor: Joe Lane's column on the Nov. 1 Opinion page ( "County has wrong fix for housing woes," page A8) is a must-read for all citizens concerned about growth in Washington County. As Lane points out, the Washington County Commissioners have or intend to no longer require developers to pay their share for roads and schools. At this point in time, we do not need to give developers any incentives to build more houses.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- An ebullient Republican Party Chairman Michael Steele asserted Wednesday that GOP victories in governors' races in New Jersey and Virginia demonstrate "a transcendent party" on the move again. Democratic Party Chairman Tim Kaine said that nothing about the election returns amounted to a repudiation of President Barack Obama. "We're not crowing, we're just smiling," Steele said in a nationally broadcast interview. "I think it's a bellwether for the party ... You look at where we were nine months ago. " Steele said he believes Chris Christie's victory in New Jersey and Robert McDonnell's win in Virginia show that the GOP has "really found its voice again" after sustaining damaging losses last year.
