    Sseriously. April fool’s day.

  3. Bubby says:

    Yeah, so I’ve got a foolish question: Bob Goodlatte campaigned on term limits when he won office in 1992, saying he would serve a maximum of 12 years, why is he still running for the office?

    And I’ll ask a dead serious one too:
    Has anyone ever heard Congressman Goodlatte explain how we will pay for his $11 Billion/month wars?

  4. Lowell Fulk says:

    Just a reminder about the debate Tuesday.

    I hope you can attend!

    The debate will also be broadcast on City Span. (Comcast Cable Channel 3)
