    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Personal responsibility, isn't that something that the Tea Party is always telling people to do?
    seems like he took personal responsibility after all......

    No, he took the coward's way out, not personal responsibility.

    So your contention is that I went out searching for this article so I could celebrate this guy's death? Wow...everything's got to be some kind of conspiracy.
    Celebrate ? That's a bit harsh.

    Used his suicide to make some kind of political point ? Yes

    What point would that be? I know what my point was, I want to know what you think it was.

    Taking responsibility would be admitting how wrong he was, sincerely apologizing and doing whatever he can to minimize whatever damage he caused. Imagine yourself married to him and ask if he took any responsibility.

    I get that a political operative does sleazy things. Check. And frankly, sneaking in and targeting a nursing home patient is pretty flipping low - even for an operative.

    But the man has a wife confined to a nursing home. There is no scandal. I think the pictures are less of a comment on the sleazy political operative than the target audience who changed their minds based on such pictures.

    He saved the taxpayers a lot of money. What he did to his wife? None of my business.
