This Is Probably True

From the Hotline Blog:
There will be plenty of Monday-morning QB'ing of VA GOV, but one of the lessons for the GOP has to be that regardless of your margins and turnout downstate, you have to at least be competitive in Fairfax Co. to win statewide.

With all but 5 of Fairfax Co's 228 precincts reporting, Kilgore is holding steady at 38% to Kaine's 60%. Kaine's margin in Fairfax will surely be the highest any GOV candidate has registered in the county in modern VA political history.

And in Kilgore's case, the turnout downstate wasn't that great, either.

But... even though both Bolling and McDonnell took a lot of lumps in Fairfax, too, they were able to make up for the pounding (barely...McDonnell/Deeds may go to a recount) in other parts of the state. Even so, that is cold comfort to the VAGOP.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
