Oh what a beautiful morning

Wednesday, November 9th, 2005

It sure is nice to wake up on a Wednesday morning in early November and have something to smile about. Last night was a good night to be a Democrat, and showed a clear repudiation by the public of Republicans and the bankrupt right wing conservative ideology. From New Jersey, Governor John Corzine. From Virginia, [...]

Skaroff Blog Endorsements

Tuesday, November 8th, 2005

After long meetings with all the candidates running for Governor in New Jersey and Virginia, the SkaroffBlog and its full-time staff have decided to add our voices to the mix and make official endorsements. This is a virtually unprecendented move for the SkaroffBlog. In 1988, 1992, and 2000 (in 1996 we endorsed Mr. Dole from [...]

Jerry Kilgore: You Make Me Sick

Wednesday, October 12th, 2005

In less than one month, Virginians will be headed to the polls to cast their votes in what will be the most important election in 2005. Currently, polls are neck and neck and as a result this campaign is becoming one of the nastiest races this citizen pundit has ever seen. To be short: Jerry [...]
