A district that the Democrats won by a big margin in 2013 voted as strongly for a Republican in a special local election on Monday.

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

I wonder if this means anything: A district that the Democrats won by a big margin in 2013 voted big for a Republican in a special local election on Monday.

The Democrat in this district loudly ran in support of Obamacare. He not only lost bad, the Republican came with a hair of winning the most liberal urban areas in Norfolk City.

    I must resist getting hopeful about November. Like Charlie Brown hoping that Lucy will hold the football this one time, I’m tired of being disappointed. The Republicans just seem to have a knack for consistently screwing up a sure win.

    I think you are assuming that the Republican leadership, and thus the controllers of party campaign funds, are Republicans. The party may have been hijacked by miscreants, and the “screw-ups” could be more intentional than they seem.

    As someone said, “with Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?”
