The National Republican Congressional Committee has gone back to basics and teamed up with top aides to help school GOP members facing election challenge on a key campaign skill: How to talk to women.
As your recent editorial discusses, estate planner Joseph Caramadre and Virginia Gov.-elect Terry McAuliffe tricked the terminally ill into signing joint brokerage accounts Mr. Caramadre and Mr. McAuliffe co-owned, a move that gave the two men full access to the bonds ("Did McAuliffe make millions cheating the dying?" Nov. 4). By the time all the diseased they duped had died, the schemers had obtained more than $10 million. However, Mr. Caramadre, the "common man," pleaded guilty, while Mr. McAuliffe, the politician, was not accused of breaking the law at all. Why does Mr. McAuliffe get another chance? Did he not commit the exact same act?

They are at it again. They are again telling Republicans and conservatives how dreadful their political condition really is. I am speaking, of course, of the voices of the kultursmog, and to hear them tell it, we are in a heck of a heap. We lost the governorship of Virginia. Even worse, we won the governorship of New Jersey. What dreadful news.
If Terry McAuliffe had any scruples, he would decline the key to the governor's mansion. But he long ago proved, along with most Democrats in power from President Obama on down, that he has no scruples.
A week after coming up short in his bid for governor, Virginia Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli penned a thank-you note to supporters Tuesday, writing that a few more days of talking about the botched roll-out of President Obama's health care overhaul could have been enough to push him over the top in his close race against Democrat Terry McAuliffe.
Democrats will use 'war on women' as long as it goes unchallenged
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Friday that he hopes the administration of his successor, Bill de Blasio, "is even better" than his own.
A leading tea party group Thursday took on "the GOP establishment" for "abandoning a winnable race in a key swing state by withholding support" for Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli.
Earl Long, the "late and great governor of Louisiana," once boasted that he knew how to fix an election, and a voting machine was no more difficult to master than a paper ballot. "I can make a voting machine play 'Home on the Range' all night long," he said.
The voter divide still holds the political seesaw in balance
The days following an election are spent reflecting on the lessons drawn from what went wrong and what went right. For Virginia Republicans, not much went right. For Democrats, just enough went right to win.
Mr. McAuliffe claims he didn't know exactly what was going on with Mr. Caramadre.
Mr. McAuliffe announced Monday he intends to retain Ric Brown, the state's current secretary of finance, for at least the first few months of his administration, when the state legislature will be marking up outgoing Gov. Bob McDonnell's proposed two-year budget.
