Last last week, I gave Ron Meyer this delicious post-Thanksgiving feast.
Yesterday, Virginia Virtucon weighed in on this narcissistic douche and tool with this LOL.
The above article referenced these greatest hits.
“The Pointlessness of Ron Meyer” published in the American Conservative
“Letter to a young conservative (Ron Meyer, Jr.)” published in the Daily Caller
This music video is dedicated to self-suspended Congressional candidate turned Virginia State Senate candidate Ron Meyer, Jr.
It is time for me to state who I believe the RPV should draft to run for U.S. Senate. I draft former Virginia First Lady Susan Allen.
Instead of just writing an article expounding on my reasoning, I made a website. Check it out at SusanAllen.org!
Ron Meyer, of the “caring” yet “me-first” self-esteem focused millenial generation, is a politically ambitious, opportunistic, attention-starved, celebrity-seeking politician. They say the most dangerous area on Capitol Hill is the path between Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and a television camera. Well, the most dangerous path in Northern Virginia and the Fox News DC studio is the path between Ron Meyer and a roomful of high-dollar donors and a camera, respectively.
Ron Meyer is suspending his quixotic Congressional campaign against Gerry Connolly (D-VA) to run for the State Senate in the event that Senator Mark Herring (D – Loudoun, Fairfax) prevails in the recount in the race for Attorney General and has to vacate his Senate seat in District 33. Meyer will follow in the footsteps of political icons in recent history who have suspended their campaigns supposedly for the greater good.
Ross Perot, among other things, did not want to throw the 1992 Presidential election into chaos in the House of Representatives and wanted to protect his daughter from dirty campaign tricks by Republicans so he suspended his campaign, only to reenter late and lose. He was also a lazy campaigner and hired rank amateurs to run his operation.
John McCain suspended his 2008 Presidential campaign to go back to Washington and “save the economy.” He voted for TARP and his poll numbers would drop across the board after he was leading Barack Obama in early September after his nomination of Sarah Palin for Vice President breathed life and energy into a dead campaign.
Ron Meyer suspended his Congressional campaign to run for State Senate. Let us not beat around the bush. Ron Meyer will lose both races.
What is more pathetic is that Ron Meyer will lose to another joker who is just as politically ambitious, opportunistic, attention-starved, and celebrity-seeking as he is. John Whitbeck running for Mark Herring’s State Senate seat when it vacates was an open and notorious secret in Loudoun political circles. He really should have been Delegate by now. In his 2011 House of Delegates primary, the kid Whitbeck had the support of far-right grassroots conservatives who dominate politics in the 10th Congressional District, of which Whitbeck now leads the RPV unit as 10th District Chair. The elder Randy Minchew had the support of the business community and normal people. Whitbeck would have cruised, were it not for the fact that unknown upstart Cara Townsend ran an unexpectedly professional campaign with meager resources and garnered a shocking 22%. She siphoned voters away from Whitbeck and allowed Minchew to win by a hair in a primary that is tantamount to election.
Whitbeck was not bitter about his dashed dream of fame and stardom, just like Mitt Romney and his “silver medals” from 2008. He carefully scripted his next two years, rubbed the right elbows, endorsed the right people, stayed in the periphery of the limelight he so craves, said the “right things”, and kept his campaign team intact (just like another loser Mitt Romney).
Except Whitbeck made a serious snafu stumping for right-wing nutjob Ken Cuccinelli in which he made a tasteless, offensive joke targeting Jewish people and his audience full of 10th District right wing extremists laughed at the joke. “47%” sounds tame compared to “it is a bill for the Last Supper”, but the former was a campaign killer (among other things…that Romney campaign was a disaster from the flip-flopping elitist candidate himself to the bottom) and the latter will prove to be a campaign killer.
Dumb and Dumber run for Virginia’s 33rd Senate District Republican Primary. Who is Dumb and who is Dumber is a matter of your personal preference. Neither are good so we won’t judge you based on your labeling. Where is Smart and Smarter when you need them?

Major retailers are staying open on Thanksgiving Day this year. Another sign of America’s vacuous, materialistic decline?
Jim Wallis, President of the Christian social justice group Sojourners, offered a frank assessment of the season’s manic shopping tendencies.
“America celebrates the coming of Christ with an orgy of consumerism,” Wallis told The Christian Post.
“It’s not only the amount we spend but the amount of time we spend worrying,” Wallis said, adding that he sees many Christians stressed out during November and December “trying to find parking in shopping malls” or ensuring they have all the right gifts for their children.
“Is this really how we want to celebrate the coming of Christ?” Wallis said.

Mona Charen writes what I have been saying all along.
Elections are about building coalitions. Do you want to win crossover Democratic support? Be nice. Also, hire talented pro-life Democrats like me to work for you!
Everybody in politics tries to tap into their boss’ networks to “move up” the political ladder and “star gaze.” I never wanted any of that. My PR firm made a few high-dollar contributions to Barbara and never once did I ask to have my name featured on a fundraising event host committee. I would follow Barbara wherever she went even if she was completely unknown in politics and had zero Washington insider connections. That is real loyalty. Barbara could run for dogcatcher and I would still be with her. Heck, I might even have more fun working in a dogcatcher office. The constituents would be uber cute!

Do you love puppies?
Virginia Delegate Barbara Comstock loves puppies! They love her back!
Vote for Delegate Barbara Comstock on Tuesday, November 5th if you love puppies!
Disclosure: Barbara has been a boss and client since day one and is like a mother to me.

Kathleen Murphy wants to raise taxes, but can’t even pay her own taxes. Such elitism and hypocrisy does not belong anywhere near an elected office.

Apparently, there is still an insane asylum of Virginia voters who believe that E.W. Jackson will win the race for Lieutenant Governor. “Ken Cuccinelli can slide in on E.W.’s coattails?” Slide in to where? Short of the first down on the minus-5 yard line on 3rd down – 95 yards away from a touchdown to cut the deficit to 10 points with 3 minutes left in the game?
Also, does anyone find it ironic that right-wing extremists brag about E.W. Jackson’s “impressive” and “surprising” fundraising numbers at the same time their favored right-wing extremist candidates with few resources and privileges like Mike Farris, Dave LaRock, and, well, E.W. Jackson among others have defeated heavily financed “Establishment” types who have powerful DC connections in GOP primaries over the last two decades? Either fundraising is critical to the success of a campaign or it is not.
Stop the spin.

This is so money. I would add the following.
11a. You have drunk the Kool-Aid if you think running a right-wing primary challenge to oust Congressman Frank Wolf is a great idea. This applies to all the sick people in the extremist Loudoun County Republican Committee.
Sidebar: I know 10th District Republicans in Virginia. If Frank Wolf ever retires, the Republican nominee will not be a Fairfax County resident espousing positive solutions. The real Republican nominee to succeed Frank Wolf will be a firebombing, Tea Partying hybrid between Dick Black and Bob Marshall. Don’t believe me? In the past two decades, 10th District Republicans of Virginia with very little power and privilege have defeated Lieutenant Governor candidate Bobbie Kilberg, Lieutenant Governor candidate Pete Snyder, Delegate Beverly Sherwood, and Delegate Joe May in nasty and bitter Republican primaries and nearly toppled Loudoun County Chairman Scott York, who is invincible in general elections but highly vulnerable in primaries. Why would the future GOP primary for Frank Wolf’s successor be any different?
21. You have nearly died of Kool-Aid intoxication if you seriously believe E.W. Jackson is an inspiring candidate who will win his Lieutenant Governor’s race.
In the interest of balance, stay tuned for a future piece attacking Kool-Aid drinking Capitol Hill-elite, moneyed, insular, cocktail party circuit, Washington Establishment types entitled, “Incest Kills.”

I have been a Republican since the 1980s. My pseudonym Big Gipper is an homage to Ronald Reagan. Reagan was not a true conservative as the Republican revisionists would have you believe. He was a pragmatic politician who knew how to compromise and get things done. I voted for Bush. I voted for McCain-Palin. I especially liked Sarah Palin. I will also keep an open mind and consider voting for Democrats.
I say all of that to say that I am a Republican who is not voting for Ken Cuccinelli for Governor. I have followed Ken Cuccinelli’s moves since he became Attorney General and he will be bad for the economy. Cuccinelli will be bad for my business.
I am a mobile professional and a ton of my client work and billable hours are done during a commute on the Metro, Metrobus, and Amtrak. It is kind of hard, actually dangerous, to attempt to e-mail clients while driving. There is now a law in Virginia against texting while driving. Since my clients need me to react rapidly to their needs or they will find somebody else, I cannot afford to be stuck in traffic without the ability to work on my computer or text my clients because they are in a meeting and cannot talk. My clients can understand my limited unavailability due to my meetings with other clients. They cannot deal with extended absence because I am stuck in traffic for hours on end.
Ken Cuccinelli is affiliated with the Loudoun Opt Out movement from 2012 that is anti-Metro, anti-smart growth, and anti-urbanization. Loudoun Opt Out nearly succeeded in convincing the all-Republican Loudoun County Board of Supervisors to go against their constituents and vote to kill Phase 2 of Dulles Rail.
With the new Silver Line, I no longer have to drive some distance to get to the Orange Line. My business and quality of life will improve and the extra income I will earn and money I will save from driving will more than offset the special taxes I have to pay to fund Metro.
A world under Ken Cuccinelli is a world of forced rural-ization, draconian funding cuts for mass transit, and increased inefficiencies in a 21st century information-based mobile economy as more and more people are forced to drive and forced to put their work on hold as a result.
I can’t text my clients and drive. It is against the law. It is also not safe. I can’t work on my computer and help clients while I drive either. These laws are needed, but my work requires me to work during my mass transit commute for an hour. I lose money during that hour if I drive.
Ken Cuccinelli, due to his Loudoun Opt Out participation, hates mass transit and hates mobile businessmen like me. He is dangerous for business in Virginia. He will not get my vote.
E.W. Jackson is the Virginia Alan Keyes. Sorry, but the clown show is not in the Virginia Capitol. Run along.
Mark Obenshain is the only competent candidate running for the GOP statewide. His record on fighting human trafficking is commendable. He is a real down to earth guy who can communicate his conservative values without offending anybody and being an unsavory individual. Class matters. Character counts. Mark has always been destined for greatness and it would be bittersweet to see him move from the Attorney General’s office to the U.S. Senate.
Not too long ago, I moved up north and got a place in the 34th House District. Barbara Comstock is my Delegate. No one is more passionate about her job than Barbara. No one has been more effective as a Delegate. This ad here gives a good summary.
I should also mention that I have never seen a real Republican garner so much crossover Democratic support. I know Democrats who will cross party lines to vote for Barbara. I even know of Democrats who work for Barbara on her campaign. I know of independents who will vote for Terry McAuliffe, but will vote for Barbara. I know of squishy, so-called “liberal” Republicans who will vote for Terry McAuliffe and Barbara Comstock just like me. Hey, in my defense, I don’t think you can call me a squishy Republican if I like Sarah Palin!
Elections are about coalitions and Barbara has a broad and diverse coalition. She will win in a landslide in the same year the Democratic ticket wins in a landslide in the 34th District. No Democrat will ever want to challenge Barbara again and Barbara will have a well-deserved Delegate seat for life.
