Holy crap! It looks like my least favorite local politician, Del. Richard Black (R) of the Virginia House of Delegates, may have been voted out of office. The absentee ballots have yet to be counted, but the Washington Post is calling it for the Democratic challenger, first-time candidate Dave Poisson. Woo hoo! Suck on that, you book-burning son of a bitch!

(Actually, as far as I know, Del. Black has never burned a book, but he is an enemy of free speech. As a trustee of the Loudoun County Public Library, he was primarily responsible for a policy that would have required the use of content filters for all patrons using the Internet in the public libraries. The policy was ultimately found unconstitutional by a Federal District Court Judge.)

The Post also says that Republican gubenatorial candidate Jerry Kilgore has conceded to Democrat Tim Kaine, saying, "He and I do disagree on policy, but we do share the same love of Virginia. I wish him well . . . as he serves as the next governor of Virginia." Man, with an attitude like that he'll be lucky not to be tossed out of the GOP. Kaine will be serving alongside a Republican Lieutentant Governor, but it's not like the LG actually does anything.
