Virginia News Stand: May 18, 2009

We lead off on the campaign trail today, thanks to the Washington Post's article on Democrat gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds, which says he "conservatism" could hurt him in the Democrats' primary. Since when is a 23 rating on the TFF Action Report Card "conservative"? (Answer: When it's the Washington Post, of course.)  Meanwhile, Time wonders why America has gone pro-life and, in the category of "we don't need constitutional amendments to protect us from state judges," one in Florida has ruled in favor of a homosexual in a case similar to the Lisa and Isabella Miller case here. However, it is being appealed to the Florida Supreme Court — remember them? Mat Staver of Virginia-based Liberty Counsel is representing the natural mother.

Also, be sure to read how a homosexual activist admits the "hate crimes" bill is bogus, and nothing more than a fundraising tool for them; and two insightful commentaries on the Barack Obama/Notre Dame scandal from (which is not affiliated with the RNC or any Republican organization).
