From the Credit Where Credit Is Due Department, the formerly awful* RPV weekly newsletter has gotten a lot better under acting chair Mike Thomas. It used to be shrill, packed with lies and exaggerations, and very negative, largely dedicated to attacking Democrats or, more often, a strawman version of Democrats. Now it’s upbeat, forward-looking, and …

5 likely candidates for the new RPV chair.

How does a Republican win in Fairfax? Don’t be a dick.
I’ve heard Republicans crowing about winning some board of supervisors seat upstate somewhere. That’s not something I can possibly muster up interest in, but I had to laugh when a read a bit about the winner, John Cook, this evening: Cook is among those in the Virginia GOP who blame the party’s slide in recent …

“Put On Your Water Wings, the GOP Tide is Coming!”
The RT-D, whose editorial page is a long-standing friend of Republicans, calls out Jeff Frederick today: Jeff Frederick seems eminently qualified to serve as chairman of the Republican Club at Sean Hannity Middle School. The delegate from Prince William serves as chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia instead. There’s the rub. It goes on. …

Who will get the axe first: Jeff Frederick or Michael Steele?
Do Senate Republicans help or hurt Frederick?
I have to wonder whether the Senate Republican Caucus leaders calling for the defeat of Jeff Frederick helps or hurts him. The sort of people inclined to support Frederick as RPV chairman are the folks far enough to the right that they think Senate Republicans are just Democrats. My guess is that it’s going to …

Replace Jeff Frederick…with whom?
Norm Leahy has been ruminating productively on the renewed calls for RPV chairman Jeff Frederick to step down, first on noticing that it’s turned into a McDonnell/Frederick battle of wills, and second on the question of who should replace Frederick. I haven’t thought any about the effects of Bob McDonnell’s support of ousting Frederick, but …
RPV “dysfunctional.” News at eleven.
Back in June, RPV chairman Jeff Frederick named wealthy businessman Walter Curt the party’s finance chair. You’ll remember Curt as the guy who bankrolled the campaign of far-far-right candidate Scott Sayre against incumbent far-right Republican Sen. Emmet Hanger. Curt’s way out there on the fringe of the party, which is just where I like my …
RPV claims Tim Kaine is breaking campaign finance laws.
In their latest e-mail, the RPV complains about Tim Kaine: Later this month, he’ll be walking the red carpet and rubbing elbows with the nation’s elite liberal jet-set to host an inaugural ball for Barack Obama. Unfortunately, doing so breaks Virginia laws against raising campaign money during a legislative session (a law fought for and …

Del. Frederick says he doesn’t plan to run for reelection.
Jeff Fredrick says he’s not running for reelection. There’s time for him to change his mind, but it’s look like Shaun Kenney is going to win our bet, meaning that I’ll need to donate $100 to the RPV.
