More Thoughts

By Too Conservative

Another quick note on the PWC news from today.

Supervisors Covington, and Nohe would both have been great choices.

Mr.Covington mingles well with politicians on all sides of the spectrum, something rarely seen in NOVA politics anymore.

For those reading who don’t know Supervisor Marty Nohe, he is an incredible man. Although we don’t agree 100% of the time(roughly 98%),I consider Mr.Nohe a mentor, and have been honored to learn so much from him already.

 He is a born leader, who has the ability to insipire youth, as can be seen with his three children.I KNOW Supervisor Nohe has an incredible future ahead of him, and hope he will never back down on his well forged principles. His lovely wife Kris should also be commended for her hard work with the Republican party thus far, as well as always being behind her husband.

Already breaking silence, often out of line PWC Chairman Kopko has already talked against Ms.Caddigan in the newspapers…..a BIG no-no for party Chair’s.

We need to think beyond petty disagreements, as the outcome of this convention will impact hundreds of thousands of lives.

I honestly do not believe anyone can replace Chairman Connaughton, and will be looking for the candidate that best fits his mold.



  • James Young says:

    It is not surprising that you would trash Kopko’s comments. You might want to familiarize yourself with Maureen Caddigan’s record of party (dis)loyalty. Ollie North; Jeff Frederick; Sean Connaughton; etc.

  • James Young says:

    However, I agree that it would be better if Kopko did not comment. At the same time, honesty would force you to admit that Caddigan has provoked a great deal of emnity with her prior disloyalty.

  • Billy Joe says:

    It’s very convenient that you are now speaking out against “petty differences.” Petty differences used to be your MO.
    Remember when you accused (now-Lt. Governor) Bill Bolling of criminal activity simply because he was running against your precious “Chairman.” Don’t remember? Does the word “Reciprocal” ring a bell?
    You tried to make something out of the fact that Ken Cuccinelli paid for Stewart’s filing fee.
    You lambasted Corey Stewart for being an obstuctionist to Connaughton’s policies.
    But now, “hundreds of thousands of lives are at stake.” Guess what? Hundreds of thousands of lives have always been at stake and it has never stopped you before. You can’t play both sides of the fence.

  • Had to Say says:

    I’m not surprised by Kopko comments either. He is bigger and better than most ordinary folks and simple courtesy and rules dom’t apply to him.

    Most committee chair’s are careful to stay out of the primary hoopla. Not so for Kopko.

  • Had to Say says:

    Hey that could be his next campaign slogan…………Not so for Kopko

  • charles says:

    TC, could you update with a link to the article with Kopko’s comments? thanks.

  • charles says:

    Maybe we should just leave the post vacant, in honor of Sean. I mean, nobody can replace him, after all.

  • Charles says:

    Cool, I posted at 8:50pm a couple of posts, and at 10:30 they were waiting “moderation”.

    I’ve always thought my comments were pretty “moderate”, but I consider myself a strong conservative. I do hope the moderates that are in charge here step forward to provide some “moderation”, so my comments can be released to the world.

    I don’t use moderation in my blog, because I want my blog to be focused and clean, and you know what they say about moderation:

    “Do all things in moderation”. Well I don’t want people doing “all things” at MY blog, like they do here in moderation, so my blog will never be in moderation.

    I wonder if THIS comment will have to wait long for moderation……

  • NoVA Scout says:

    Charles: I mentioned this before, but we’re having seemingly random comments fall into “moderation” status. this has happened to several of my own. The Housesitters here don’t have the opportunity to monitor the posts as assiduously as Vincent did, so we sometimes don’t realize that something is parked in moderation for quite a while. We’ll get this figured out soon. It seems kind of random. You and I are going into moderation and Molleur and Young breeze on through. Go figure. But it is a technical glitch, not something that’s personally directed. I apologize for the inconvenience.

  • James Young says:

    I must confess, I don’t understand this. Notwithstanding the fact that I presume that many would like to do so, none of my comments have ever been relegated to “moderation” here. Must be a glitch. I would read no ulterior motives into it, Charles.

  • charles says:

    I’m sorry, I was being funny. I neither thought there was an ulterior motive, nor thought the two comments “in moderation” were of any particular value such that they needed to be quickly revealed.

    I just thought it would be fun to play on the two meanings of the word “moderation”.

    I’m sorry my skills of humor were ill-represented by my post.

  • NoVA Scout says:

    We would have laughed ourselves silly if we had all been in the same room together, Charles. The problem with blogs and e-mail is that one loses the tone of voice.
