Connaughton for Weenie of the Week. He has proven beyond belief that he does not control PW politics.
Connaughton for Warner of the Week for getting confirmed in his appointment, positioning himself to continue in public office for some time in the future- possible running in the 11th Congressional district in '08.

So is Sean.

August 04, 2006 at 02:45 PM
Weenie of the Week: Senator Joe Lieberman for failing, once again, to aggressively campaign for the Democratic nomination and for his delusional attempt at a third party run
Warner for the Week: The Commonwealth Coalition for their success in getting two key newspaper endorsements (Roanoke Times and Virginian Pilot) against the Newman/Saxman Amendment.

Joe: are you talking about Newman/Marshall? If so, how can you give them a Warner for something that was locked up from the get-go? If the Washington Times sees it their way, then they should get a Warner. :)
Can I nominate Judy Feder for Weenie for wearing the Tiger Suit again and for cutting her hair shorter than mine?

How about Dannyboy himself, since his overly wordy, inane picks are always a letdown anyway. And judging from the number of comments he gets, I don't think he ruffles many feathers. Boooring.
August 04, 2006 at 03:00 PM
I concur with the above suggestion.
Weenie: I don't know. I'm not really pissed off at anyone in particular this week.
August 04, 2006 at 03:00 PM
I wouldn't give it to Chairman Sean. However, I WOULD award it to those among his sycophants who tried to hamstring the PWC GOP by criticizing and belittling the efforts of the County GOP's leadership who anticipated his well-justified and predictably swift confirmation.

Weenie of the week: Jim Webb, for holding Kitchen Table Tours with six voters at a time.
Warner of the week: No one in particular
August 04, 2006 at 03:23 PM
Warner: Dave Marsden for handling the publicity of his firing from Mark Warner with class.
August 04, 2006 at 03:44 PM
Two reasons ...
1) Kitchen Tables.
Small scale retail in a Senate race is useless. Webb's scheduler should be fired. This is mickey mouse crap reserved for delegate primaries.
2) New Webpage.
Anybody with a splash frontpage (especially with flash which he use to have) is clueless. Splash pages were considere faux pas in 1998. Only marketing idiots who can't type think they're cool. Webb's web guy should be fired.
August 04, 2006 at 03:53 PM
Hysterical Bloggers for refusing to tax the Marriage Amendment at face value.

Weenie: Anti-Connaughtonites who spent all their time tearing the man down, but when they saw the chance to grab power became the sweetest singers of his praise. "He is a bad Republican, but Bush should definately appoint him." Give me a break!
Warner: Prince William Democrats. While the GOP has been publicly fighting and tearing itself apart over the Chairmanship, the Dems have been quietly laying in wait ready to pounce on a weakened and divided opponent.

Weenie of the Week:
IT HAS TO BE DANNYBOY!!! HIS PICKS ARE AWFUL AND WE MUST RESTORE ORDER TO THIS HUMOROUS SECTION OF NLS!!!
Warner of the Week: The Commonwealth Coalition for the aforementioned reasons.
August 04, 2006 at 04:07 PM
Sadly, I have to renominate the Webb campaign. This time, it's for launching a website with pre-written LTEs and asking all Webb supporters to forward these campaign written LTEs to major media outlets. Yeah, the Washington Post, etc. are gonna take really kindly to being spammed by Webb campaign propoganda with "voters'" names attached to it.
August 04, 2006 at 04:08 PM
August 04, 2006 at 04:13 PM
Dannyboy is the only choice for weenie of the week
Connaughton should be Warner for making it through the Senate
August 04, 2006 at 04:21 PM
republitarian & co. for Warner for brokering the Greg and Greg peace deal.
August 04, 2006 at 05:10 PM
My choice is that crack Webb campaign staff,again. Table for 5 please! Nifty strategy ! let's see, 1 table down, only 167,000 to go. Boy, they got Felix on the ropes now!
Memo to Webb staff, New rule, from now on absolutely no alcohol before noon, and no more scheduling of events without adult supervision. Cripes!!!!
August 04, 2006 at 05:25 PM
Enough with attacking Webb for the kitchen table talks. It's a pretty standard thing to do at this point.
They are not very hard to put together, it's a play for free media, and it doesn't distract from spending the other 4/5 of the day on fundraising. There's no way you're going to build crowds for big rallies in the middle of July to early August.
Think before you attack.
August 04, 2006 at 05:33 PM
Small, lite, forums are pretty standard for incumbents with 7 million dollars and a ten plus point lead in the polls. "Pretty Standard" is not going win for Webb.
August 04, 2006 at 05:39 PM
No Anon. you miss the point. Webb can't afford to expend any real resources for big rallies in July. These little events allow him to devote the great bulk of his time to fundraising while creating simple media availability. I can see a lot of people have very little campaign experience.
August 04, 2006 at 05:43 PM
If you're going to nominate me, please spell my name right. :)
I've got to say a Warner goes to Republitarian and Republitarian's wife for talking me down from the cliff yesterday. :)
Greg Bouchillon |
August 04, 2006 at 05:45 PM
Brian, I gotta agree with the other folks here. Webb's a challenger and he can't afford to be meeting with 5 people at a time unless they have 1) beaucoup bucks, 2) a checkbook, and 3) a writing utensil.
If he doesn't have resources for any bigger or splashier events he is in trouble.
Not Jack Herrity |
August 04, 2006 at 05:49 PM
NJH- It's certainly problematic that he is going to be outspent many times over but taking that as a given, it makes perfect sense to hold his fire till after Labor Day. And given that, he still needs to create media avails. What better than a small controlled setting? Disagree?
August 04, 2006 at 05:52 PM
brimur is right. Anyway this is early august the big money people are out on their yachts, or in the tropics.House parties are a good thing and can be used as organizing tools.
August 04, 2006 at 05:58 PM
James Martin for bashing God, err.. Ronald Reagan.
Brainwashed Republican |
August 04, 2006 at 06:09 PM
Weenie - Tommy D. for using his woman to take lobbyist's money.
Warner - Andy H. for beating him up for it. Maybe James Walkinshaw for the gentlemanly and mature way he handled the stuff thrown at him this week. Not bad for a young man barely old enough to buy beer.
August 04, 2006 at 06:12 PM
The slam dunk weenie is Dan Martinez from FEMA for denying flood assistance to the Huntington community in Fairfax County because they're "affluent". When exactly did low- to mid-income citizens become affluent? Maybe Larry, Moe, and Curly from FEMA should do some research next time. "Doing one helluva job Martini [my guess for W's self-appointed nickname].

August 04, 2006 at 06:15 PM
Tom Davis is the Weenie of the Week for dignifying Andy Hurst's call for his resignation with a response. This is NOT the behavior of an entrenched incumbent. Has Tom lost his ability run a race?!
August 04, 2006 at 06:17 PM
Weenie of the Week to the Mason-Dixon polling company for doing a poll on a major ballot question that totally mislead the repsondants---giving them only the first and FAR less controversial paragraph of the Marshall/Newman (/Saxman?) amendment. The coverage of this was, understandably, very misleading. It'd be like a major polling firm conducting a poll today asking whether voters are more likely to vote for George Allen or Karen Darner... not a very good indication of what the Webb/Allen numbers will be.
Warner of the Week to me for my continued contribution to the blogsphere.
August 04, 2006 at 06:35 PM
Weenie: Virgil Goode. For bringing his corruption home to roost on the home district (or Virginia taxpayers).
Warner: Andy Hurst. Taking it back, one day at a time. Stonewall Hurst?
August 04, 2006 at 06:40 PM
Dannyboy should the weenie to himself. He either lets his bias get in the way or can't even hold to his own criteria. He is just truly awful. I almost feel sorry for him but he is not smart enough to realize how off he is.
My second nomination for Weenie of the week is conditional. IF the Webb campaign is traveling around the state doing these kitchen table while NOT holding fundraisers in the same places, they should just pack it up and go home. BTW, I support Webb.
Warner of the Week - I just did not see anyone who truly did much to make life better for anyone - really it has been kind of slow on the gallantry. Pass.
August 04, 2006 at 06:50 PM
I also want to give a little shout out to the Hurst and Feder campaigns. Yeah they are huge underdogs and no one really believes they can win. However, they are aggressive and working hard. Just a little love to a couple of folks who are not taking off this hot, humid summer.
It's also nice to see Webb make an appearance this summer. July 4th was a long time ago.
August 04, 2006 at 06:53 PM
Weenie: Webb Campaign
August 04, 2006 at 06:58 PM
I think the world may stop turning for saying this, but the Weenie of the Week should be John Warner for his action on stopping wind farms. I accept not beleiving in science from whacjobs like Brownback and Imhofe, but not from Sen. Warner.
August 04, 2006 at 06:59 PM
Weenie: Dannyboy aka WeenieBoy
August 04, 2006 at 07:25 PM
How about Gerry Connelly for holding up the nomination of Dan Tangerlini for not being from Virginia? The best candidate they have a prayer of getting and they still want to spend $100,000 to search for somebody else?
August 04, 2006 at 07:30 PM
Hokie Anne- I have no idea what you are talking about. Can you tell me more? I'm always willing to consider Gerry. :)
Not Larry Sabato |
August 04, 2006 at 07:33 PM
I respect your opinion, but I think you oversimplify the issue.
This reporter comes pretty close to the whole story.
The issue is about transparency and accountability in hiring a long-term public manager who will face incredible future challenges. My take was that Connolly was not taking the easy way out, like some other local leaders may be doing. He was asking some tough questions to Ms. Mack. What is wrong with that?
I Trust Webb |
August 04, 2006 at 08:17 PM
Dan Tangherlini is the interim Metro chief and former head of DCDOT. By most accounts he did a great job as head of DCDOT and folks thought he was making promising starts at attacking Metro's many, many problems.
Yesterday's Post had a good editorial about this:
August 04, 2006 at 08:22 PM
The Newman/SAXMAN Amendment??????
He just votes the Family Foundation line, he's not a social crusader.
I mean, a "Cost Cutting Caucus"? Hardly "Taliban" material right there.
Adam Sharp |
August 05, 2006 at 12:19 AM
wow, thanks adam, I just noticed that. What in the world?!
Not Larry Sabato |
August 05, 2006 at 12:28 AM
Based on the DSCC's decision NOT to invest a penny in Virginia (while spending $25 million elsewhere) I'd have to nominate the Webb campaign.
All the campaign had to do was show some fundraising ability, not look foolish in the debate and break 40 in the polls. Having failed in all 3 respects, the "worst campaign ever" has forced the DSCC to abandon the state and look elsewhere.
August 05, 2006 at 11:57 AM
Warner - Bearing Drift at www.Bearingdrift.com for doing the right thing and being very classy.
August 05, 2006 at 12:26 PM
I'm gonna nominate Virgil Goode as the Weenie of the week, for costing the Martinsville area $500,000 in tax incentives for MZM to build a production facility there, and then by his own incompetence and congressional arrogance, that the Pentagon shuts down the operation, and forces Martinsville to lose high quality jobs.
Warner.. no idea...
August 05, 2006 at 12:42 PM
I nominate Virgil Goode for Weenie. How bad does this turd need to be to get noticed?
August 05, 2006 at 02:51 PM
Teacherken wrote a nearly 2,000-word post on RK today.
It was about bumper stickers.
Webb's campaign is CRANKIN' UP!
The netroots bukkake of stupid continues.
August 05, 2006 at 03:11 PM
I think I see the theme of Repubs wanting Webb as Weenie. Go figure.
I nominate Lieberman for Weenie. No further explanation required.
Fan of Integrity |
August 05, 2006 at 09:30 PM
Weenie should definitely be Dannyboy, for not only using Weenie of the week to further his own political agenda, but for taking all the fun out of it. He should actually be Weenie of the Month...or NLS should be for turning it over to him.
