Who's the "gentleman from Spotsylvania", Mark Cole?

Out of curiosity, Ben, where do you get a copy of the video of the General Assembly session? Do you rip the streaming video that's offered when the General Assembly is in session?
I wished they offered the video of the previous day's events when the General Assembly is adjourned. :\

Republicans hate gay people...and black people...and Hispanic people...and female people...and non-fundamentalist Christian people...and working people...and poor people...and middle class people...and smart people...and Muslim people...and...

Sure, they go off in public about how they don't like gay people, but when it gets down to it, boo-yeah.
If you can't beat'em, they will soon join'em.
They want the top 5.
Disagree; Republicans love gay people |

Didn't this pass the republican controlled house? That seems to disprove the statement.
February 27, 2009 at 10:07 AM
And now Mark Cole has presented this resolution to commend the Family Foundation:
This is obviously to spite Adam Ebbin and the statements made above. Grow up, Mark Cole. Do his constituents really believe he should spend his time IN session playing "gotcha" games?
February 27, 2009 at 12:17 PM
I'm surprised that t and/or Grapes haven't weighed in by assering that the House passage of Adam's resolution is the end of all things holy and that we're now bringing about the Apocalypse
February 27, 2009 at 12:40 PM
I don't like the gay group or family foundation being commended. Both are a waste of time and completely meaningless for the legislature to be concerned with them.
February 27, 2009 at 01:35 PM
Budget, budget, budget. That is the only job for Delegates and Senators members at the moment.
Get with it, folks.

And there is t, posing as yet another pseudonym.
Probably just got done laying with a man, too.

Sigh. I am a Republican. Admittedly, I am a transplant from waaay up north and a moderate. That means I'm sometimes rather unhappy with the candidates my party chooses in Virginia and with its positions.
I respect all people and their rights. I get a little tired of the all-Republicans-are... I know Ben is being cute with his title. But I don't hate anyone. Never have. Never will.
And, yes, indeed I was embarrassed for Jeff Frederick for that Darwin/Lincoln address. (Although I was glad for the vid. I go watch now and again for a darned good laugh.)
No, no, no. |

most of these gay groups are just a bunch of homos and half of them don't know dick.
February 27, 2009 at 03:56 PM
For what it's worth if you're referring to the Del who had a point of order in the middle of the resolution as "the gentleman from Spotsylvania", then most definitely this was not Mark Cole. I don't know who it was though.

February 27, 2009 at 05:19 PM
Yeah, Rtwng Extrmst, the guy with the point of order question about whether the motion is part of the block definitely isn't Mark Cole.
But I'm pretty sure it has to be Mark Cole ("the gentleman from Spotsylvania") who refuses to yield to a question at the beginning of the video and was probably responsible for removing the resolution from the block in the first place.
Spotsylvania County is covered by three different districts: 97th which is Chris Peace, but he's from Hanover County. 54th which is Bobby Orrock, but he's from Caroline County. And then you have the 88th which is Mark Cole. I'm pretty sure Cole still lives in Spotsy since he used to be on the Spotsy's Board of Supervisors.

The person who made the point of order was almost certainly House Majority Leader Morgan Griffith who, more than most members, has to keep track of what item is being debated. It certainly sounded like his voice.
February 27, 2009 at 05:53 PM
@Anon at 5:53 PM
Yeah, it looks like Morgan Griffith now that you mention it. :)

Maybe you folks should watch more of these sessions. Most likely the bill was pulled from the block for the same reason it was presented in the first place.
The sponsor wanted political points for acknowledging the gay and lesbian voters and whoever pulled it wanted a record on those who supported or opposed it. Would it have been different if a liberal wanted to put his opponents on record with their vote.
No matter, it is all political and for one side to claim a higher ground, or say that the other is bigoted in one way or the other is simply wrong.
If all of these people thought the same there would be no reason to meet or have discussions. Personally, although I disagree, I could really care less. I worry more about trying to get a second job to pay my new taxes than some anniversary.
February 27, 2009 at 10:37 PM
and for anybody who has followed the session, the minority leader has busted the balls of his own delegates from Northern Virginia much more than any of the majority has.
February 27, 2009 at 10:39 PM
Who are the dumbass fools who elected Ebbin?
"I would, ummm, like to, uhhh, point out that, ummmm, it's good for us to, uhhhh, commend groups that, uhhhmmmm, help people participate in, uhhhhhh..."
How the hell did that phucktard ever get elected?
February 27, 2009 at 11:49 PM
10:37, if Cole pulled the bill from the block and wanted to score political points; why didn't he request a roll call vote. The bill obviously did not have unanimous support, so he would have had more than ample support to get a vote called.
You don't many political points on a voice vote.
February 28, 2009 at 08:55 AM
I think maybe Ebbin put a stop to any plans, by his attention on the subject.
Sometimes things "seem like a good idea at the time"..lol
(or maybe I am just completely wrong and not politics were involved on either side...) Not
February 28, 2009 at 11:36 AM
Well gay people hate Republican people o_O
February 28, 2009 at 06:45 PM
Can someone read the resolution? Do you really think it appropriate that the General Assembly praise any PAC, regarless of who it supports?
March 01, 2009 at 11:27 AM
I was told that Jackson Miller voted FOR Adam Ebbins bill that would protect gays in the work place during a heated sub-committee vote. Anyone else hear about this? I was also told he actually argued for the bill.
March 01, 2009 at 11:55 AM
I'm sure not all Republicans hate gay people. However, reasonable Republicans, Richard Lugar for example, are pretty much without influence in the party. It has become, at its core, a party of very angry and hateful people. Now, as much as I'd like all reasonable Republicans to join the Democrats, it is important for their to be two capable political parties. Now that one of the parties is basically run by nuts, the voters don't have a choice. Too all you normal balanced people who are Republicans, please take back your party so us Democrats have somebody intelligent to debate with. We'll lose our edge if we spend all our time debating with the likes of Jeff Frederick.

Once the stranger, you and I, only one of screen, Cordial greetings, deep blessing. Because a margin of words, deep will miss each other! My world is wonderful because of you! Plum sincerely wish you happy every day! Happiness forever!
