Sometimes Goode Bye is a Second Chance
Thank God. Virgil Goode forgoes another run for office in 2010, allowing Republicans a legitimate chance to take back the seat without the spectacle of embarrassment. Goode’s antics and controversies was the sole reason VA-05 was vulnerable to begin with, but without Obama on the top of the ticket, it represents perhaps the best pick-up opportunity in the nation, provided we climb out of the cellar of our past.
Personally (and I don’t know exactly where he lives, so he may have to move) I think John Brownlee would make an excellent Congressman.
