Ooh, look, down in Richmond, seat of the Confederacy: A 10-minute speech by Gov. Bob McDonnell--delivered in about the same time it took him just to enter the chamber (what, no litter available?)--with a lovely rainbow coalition of Virginians of all ages, races and both genders arrayed behind him, applauding.
Those folks must be a microcosm--a veritable random sampling--of the GOP's state legislative caucuses in the House and Senate in Richmond!
Um, not quite.
UPDATE: Apparently Virginia Democratic legislators were invited, but very late.
