Republicans cut own throats with Brat

The Republican Party or, more especially, the tea party Republicans, have just slit their throats in the 7th District of Virginia.

Some will say they were enthusiastic supporters of ridding our district of Rep. Eric Cantor, but they could never give a good reason.

Others were just misled. Vladimir Lenin referred to these people as "useful idiots." Mix enthusiasm with stupidity and you soon have a version of "ja, mein fuhrer."

I have resigned from the Orange County Republican Committee, as I cannot support the Republican nominee.

How will I vote? For the first time in my life, I might vote for a Democrat, Jack Trammell, write Eric Cantor's name in or leave it blank.
