The Republican Party will not be dancing its way back to conservatives any time soon, if today’s episode of Fakes and Flakes: The Reality Show is any indication. By a vote of 57-18, the insiders on the State Central Committee of the Republican Party of Virginia have removed chairman Jeff Frederick, who was popularly elected less than one year ago. Having not thought the issue of Mr. Frederick’s replacement “through that far“, the establishmentarians appointed Mike Thomas to serve as interim chairman, as he has three times in six years. SCC plans to meet on May 2 to elect its own puppet. If I thought the RPV establishment was competent enough to execute such a plan, I’d say they were trying to encourage conservatives to leave. But I think instead they’re just parodying their own rudderlessness.
