Gosh, that's just too bad. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

HighOnCraic: Mission accomplished!

/He said he was gonna.


Actually, that's the whole thing, he pretended he was more like Larry Hogan than Trump during the campaign, and it worked. Nobody who actually knew about him believed it, but he avoided comparisons to Trump, said he wouldn't require removal of school mask mandates, punted on his stance on abortion, and ran hard on CRT and education.
 
2022-01-25 9:06:24 AM  
Has he blamed Biden yet? That's gonna be the frosting on every Trumpkin cake.

Virginia voters apparently fell into the "Democrats didn't fix everything, we should give the Republicans a try" mindset and are now "finding out".

I didn't vote for Governor DoucheFace McfarkHead.

My county just voted to rescind the mask mandate in schools thanks to this asshole. There aren't strong enough words for me to accurately describe what I want to happen to him.

How very clean of your people.

Not only that, i've seen folks declare him a "Lame duck" and thus promote voting third party / abstaining from voting this time around.

The only reason I can think for such illogical behavior is they are so invested in being anti-establishment that they honestly don't want to be in control cause it wrecks their reason for being.

Was he a successful businessman who was gonna run the state like a biz?

We did that with Rauner in Illinois and all the indicator arrows are pointing up, up and up.  Oops.  Hang on.  I had the visial aid turned upside down.   Awwwww craaaaa....

No no.  I said 'successful'.

Loudoun County mother Heather Jermacams said her daughter was moved into a separate classroom after she didn't wear a mask. Video shows Jermacams shouting into a phone, refusing to pick up her daughter.

"No, I am not picking my child up. She has an IEP, and I will call my lawyer next. She has an IEP and needs to be in her classroom. Do you understand me?" she said.


Don't they put those at the side of the road in Iraq to blow up vehicles?
No, that's an IED.
What's an IEP?
Improvised Explosive Penis
Well that sounds even worse.

IEP, eh? What's more individualized than getting your own individual classroom?

Being in the room with all the other students sounds collectivized to me. That simply won't do.

Why do you hate democracy? Elections have consequences.

Also, the derplorables basically all voted for the Lt. Governor too, so there goes your people's other favorite argument.

God, I am so sick of that stupid electioneering statement. There are VERY GOOD reasons why governments do not run like businesses. First, and foremost, they are not designed to make profits. Second, they are supposed to provide for the general welfare of all people not just the owners, shareholders, or workers of the company. The list can go on and on and on.

I immediately cringe when I hear that from any candidate, even one that I like.

Ah, but since the rest of your state didn't vote for the Democrat, you and your family are now disposable according to the Good People Who Vote For Democrats On Fark®.

They feel like that because they're the good and moral people, which you can tell because of their willingness for you and your family to die.

Nice try libs, but it says in the constitution that the rights of parents to turn their kids into biological weapon vectors outweighs then right of parents who want to keep their families alive.
 
2022-01-25 9:54:59 AM  
This is what we all said was going to happen. It was clear from the start that he was a Trump clone, and the fact that he would never answer any questions about what he would do as governor were evidence thereof. In fact, we had journalists with hidden cameras getting him on video saying that "I can't say my true stance on abortion without upsetting the Independents" and things of that nature. We all said this and were labeled "hysterical" by the complicit corporate media.

We were proven correct in literally zero days.
 
2022-01-25 9:55:07 AM  
It's kinda funny watching this duplicitous asshole dig his own grave. He straightens up from time to time, looks around above ground ( could have been a moderate GOP Governor like Hogan, Baker , Scott, even Sununu, and he might stand a chance at reelection, but. NNOOOoooo, he digs harder and faster. Classic Fark conundrum

But you already have a premade shiathole that you guys created on your own.  It seems too much effort to create another one when you can move back.

What bothers you about the US?  Is it black people?  Gays?  non-christians? Non-nazis?
 
2022-01-25 9:56:44 AM  
And to think only a few short months ago all the news stations covering the Virginia race were keen to talk about Youngkins unity message about getting past divisive politics and acted very confused about how anyone could suspect him of being a Trump wannabe.

Ask them.  Just because you are subscribing to Nazism doesn't mean Californians aren't allowed to move to another state within the same country.

I live hear and agree with the sentiment. fark this state and everyone in it. My family is fine, my family is safe, and I will do everything that I can to protect them.

I did everything I could to prevent this from happening, everyone who couldn't be arsed to vote because they weren't "inspired" enough or whatever can eat shiat.

I'm in survival mode now, I have compassion fatigue. If you didn't care about me enough to prevent this, I don't care about you enough to save you from it - and that doesn't even include the other half of the state who wanted this to happen - they can all eat a metric ton of triceratops shiat, for all I care.
