The Wrap-Up: December 2, 2011

Current Governor Bob McDonnell (R-VA)
Larry Sabato of UVA's Center for Politics has a rundown of the Senate races for the 2012 election.

Virginia's 2013 gubernatorial race may get a little cannibalistic on the GOP side. Given the likely players, that suits this Virginia boy just fine.

A Russian group has begun airing this ad to counter a proposed anti "gay propaganda" measure.

The Colombian government is using  false pretense to keep a gay dad from his adoptive sons.

Here is a video so good, it went viral...TWICE!!!

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH)
Just as his star starts to rise in this election cycle, Newt Gingrich says something like this. He really loves America's youth (at least the ones with trust funds).

As if there had been any questions about it before, John Boehner has announced he is NOT an economist. Given his positions on economic issues, I'm pretty sure everyone had assumed as much. 

To clarify, raising taxes on millionaires is bad. Raising taxes on the middle-class? That's another story...

Two separate attempts to extend the payroll tax, one from each party, both failed in the Senate. It looks like some of these Senators have been listening to Grover Norquist.

Daniel Craig
In some shocking news, there is a Republican in the Senate for ending all of those tax loopholes for the wealthy. Call me a skeptic, but I'll wait until I see how he votes on such a measure.

One of the most well known conservative pollsters seems to think that Democrats talking about taxing the rich will help them win...mainly because it would (and is).

And lastly, Daniel Craig pretty much spoke for me in this assessment of the Kardashian herd.
