|Mark Herring on Inauguration Day|
I happened upon the image above and too me it underscores just how different the next four years will be in Virginia with Terry McAuliffe, Ralph Northam and Mark Herring holding the highest statewide offices. Under today's Republican Party of Virginia one is only a "true citizen" or "true American" if one is a white conservative Christian. Obviously, the children in the photo would not qualify as true Virginians - one need only recall George Allen's "Macaca" remark to realize the sick nature of the Virginia GOP. The boyfriend and I are honored that we supported these men and that we hosted an event in our home for Mark Herring.
