More Gay Judge Drama!

By Loudoun Insider

Oh boy, the Puritans in the Virginia House of Delegates are gonna be pissed!  The Richmond Circuit Court appointed the gay judge who the HOD recently rejected to fill the open slot on the Richmond District Court.  Bob McDonnell goes off the Puritanical reservation in response to this slap in the face of the HOD:

Tucker Martin, a spokesman for Gov. Bob McDonnell, said:

“The governor believes Mr. Thorne-Begland is well-qualified to serve on the bench. He congratulates him on the appointment.”

More drama sure to unfold soon.

    I believe you have insulted Puritans by comparing them to the hateful characters in the legislature who tried to keep this extremely well qualified candidate off the bench.

  • James Young says:

    Yeah. “Well-qualified,” except for his demonstrated propensity to violate his oath to pursue his personal political agenda.

  • Lil’ Jimmy with his typical absurdity back at it.

  • BlackOut says:

    Well, I’d say Minchew and TAG gots some splainin’ to do.

    The five largest law firms in Richmond write letters to get this guy on to the court. The leading R Delegate, who happens to be a military lawyer comes out and says he was wrong. Wrong after he did the research to determine Judge Thorne-Begland did not violate his oath. The oath that was used for cover for bigotry against a gay man. And we have the Circuit Court itself appointing this guy. That’s a lot.

    Come on Minchew and TAG how about either coming out supporting this guy or telling us the real reason you voted against him? Or will we now see a new contrived cover story on why Judge Thorne-Begland doesn’t deserve this next assignment?

  • BlackOut says:

    Tell it to the judge(S) Jimmy.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Good one indeed – tell it to the Governor as well, JY.

  • Baron Rosedown says:

    Seems the Circuit Court brought a Gatling gun to the House of Delegates knife fight. The CC has a massive pair of cojones for not only defying the HoD, but the Gov too. Glad to see Judge Thorne-Begland appointment.

  • BlackOut says:

    At least McDonnell recognized the firepower against him and backed down. Timidly though but acceptant of the inevitable.

    Not so for Marshall. There is a reason the dude only got 6% in the senate race. That’s a good sign. Not a good week for Marshall.

  • James Young says:

    Yes, Baron, because we WANT judges who defy the legislature!

    It will be interesting to see what happens to the Richmond Circuit Court bench when they come up for reappointment after this slap in the face to the House of Delegates.

  • BlackOut says:

    Jimmy,the legislature didn’t deny anything. Only the house did. Big difference Jimmy. This was nothing more than a Marshall initiated grand stand that was slapped down. As it should have been.

    Marshall has had a dismal week. 6% in a republican Senate referendum on his state wide influence and views and then an in our face shut up by the circuit court. Marshall is toast.

    As a conservative I love it!!

  • The HOD not only failed in a misguided attempt to keep him off the district court bench (which is frankly a very minor judgeship to begin with) but they drew the condemnation and contempt of the nation in the process.

    All VA Rs get a double black eye! And really over nothing

  • BlackOut says:

    Where is TAGs and Minchews response?

  • BlackOut says:

    …or is TAG and Minchew among those noted by Marshall as being stunned by the actions of the Governor.

  • James Young says:

    Idiot and BO, I suppose it gives you some satisfaction to belittle me with a childlike nickname, but (1) my son’s name is Jimmy, and he doesn’t comment on blogs, and (2) the Chief Justice of the United States calls me “Mr. Young,” and if you can’t call me “Jim” or “James,” perhaps you should just extend the same courtesy. Of course, it’s entertaining to be belittled by cowardly little lions who hide behind pseudonyms.

    As for your moronic comment about “the legislature,” BO, the point, of course, is that this action by judges subject to election by the legislature is a slap in the face to that same legislature, even if only one house acted in this instance. There should be consequences. Whether there will be depends, I suppose, upon whether legislators are foolish enough to believe the chattering classes, particularly those who falsely categorize themselves as “conservatives” even while giving aid and comfort to the radical homosexual agenda.

  • Cato the Elder says:

    “As a conservative”

    Was that supposed to be funny?

  • Eric the 1/2 Troll says:

    “Idiot…, ”

    Hey “Mr. Young” what’s with the raca? Repent, Isay…REPENT!! Else you are no better than the “radical homosexual agenda” you so love to vilify!

  • BlackOut says:

    Any word from Minchew or TAG on this? Or are they following the ridiculous stance of 6% Marshall?

    Got it, so Jimmy is insulting to you. Heaven forbid your persona be tied to anything insulting. If a President didn’t mind being called Jimmy I wouldn’t think you would. Oh for all I know Jim Young could be a pseudomonas.

  • Fionnuala says:

    I always chuckle a little bit when I see someone use the term “radical homosexual agenda,” intending to be taken seriously.

    I think this agenda needs to be published somewhere for all to see, by the radical homosexuals, so we all know exactly what we’re dealing with. Otherwise, it’s defined by people like Jimbo above and other folks like Delgaudio.

  • TCJohnson says:

    “Idiot and BO, I suppose it gives you some satisfaction to belittle me with a childlike nickname, but (1) my son’s name is Jimmy, and he doesn’t comment on blogs, and (2) the Chief Justice of the United States calls me “Mr. Young,” and if you can’t call me “Jim” or “James,” perhaps you should just extend the same courtesy.

    I think this is hysterical that he takes offense to being called Jimmy, yet on his blog he refers to the president as Barry,

  • James Young says:

    And I always chuckle a little, Fionnuala, when people respond to the radical homosexual agenda as if there is not one. And it is “published somewhere”; for example, on the website of the so-called “Human Rights Campaign,” and (probably) in the Democrat Party platform. Do a little web research (your own), and if you have even a small vestige of honesty left, you’ll recognize and admit that there is one, of course. Do they call it that? Of course not. But then again, they also prefer the euphemism “gay” to the accurate “sexual deviant,” too.

    And, as implied above, Fionnula, I am taken far more seriously by people that actually matter than you can ever hope to be.

  • mosborn says:

    Thanks for reminding me that there’s an inverse relationship between the seriousness with which someone is actually taken, and the number of times that person tells you they’re taken seriously.

  • Eric the 1/2 Troll says:

    Repent, “Mr. Young”, REPENT!!

  • BlackOut says:

    I patron a wonderful gentleman down in DC who has been shining shoes for years. He’s an icon in the neighborhood. Out of respect I always refer to him as Mr. Jones.

  • Liberal Anthropologist says:

    No reader of this thread should take James Young for being related to the conservative movement. He belongs to a movement based in religion, not political conservatism.

    He then attacks the conservatives who think government should stay out of marriage or what sex people have with consenting adults.

    People like James Young are not conservatives. And regardless they are a dying breed. Along with Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming idiots. And people who like Celine Dion.

    Thank God.

    “Of course, it’s entertaining to be belittled by cowardly little lions who hide behind pseudonyms.”

    Jesus, James, if that’s your idea of entertainment, you’re way more twisted than I ever imagined. Get out. Get laid. Do something useful. For God’s sake, man, stop setting yourself up as a proverbial whipping post. It’s unbecoming, and waaaaaaaaay too predictable.

  • R Nolan says:

    You had me at Celine Dion.

  • TCJohnson says:

    The Radical Homosexual agenda:

    1) get a good job where they are judged and rewarded for their performance, not for what their personal lives.

    2) To live the lives they want to live without interference or interfering with the lives of others. If needed, get the law to help them with this.

    3) Be a part of the society.

    4) To not be lonely.

    That’s about it.
