The shorter version of recent local editorials about Clinton and the Democrats

If you've read them, you can probably skip this post. Here are the shorter versions of three day's worth of anti-Clinton editorials.

More than "weird"

The WV governor's race

Four weeks ago, I highlighted an article from Politico which asked "Is West Virginia Holding America's Weirdest Election?" It's funny what distance does to perspective -- Politico's description of our governor's race doesn't seem to be as much of an overstatement as it did at the time.

Watching the West Virginia debate for governor

I watched the entire debate. (Admit it, you either ignored it or quickly flipped over to "Jeopardy" or a home shopping network which provided at least some intellectual stimulation.) In my case, I think there should be some sort of reward (in heaven or elsewhere) for devotion to the purposes of this blog.

The political results of the latest Metro News poll of likely West Virginia voters were released yesterday and today. In the race for president: Trump got 49% to Clinton's 31% with Libertarian Johnson getting 10% and Green Stein receiving 4%.
