Virginia Virtucon blogger Terrence Boulden (see Next subject please….) has called for less drama in reporting from bloggers concerning fellow Republicans in general and Brian Schoeneman in particular:
Can’t we all just get along? I have no idea what Brian Schoeneman did to some people on the blogs, but I think most of us out there watching the open seat race for Sully District Supervisor in Fairfax County would be happy if they would get over it. The attacks being leveled are unfair and some of them are just flat out dumb. I’m tired of the attacks on Brian. Brian’s my friend and he’s done a lot of good for the Republican Party in Fairfax and the constant attacking is getting old.
Their most recent attack is claiming that Brian had something to do with the FCRC’s executive committee voting overwhelmingly to recommend firehouse primaries for all of the elections in the county this year.
Isn’t that what we want? Aren’t firehouse primaries the natural compromise between the people who want conventions and the people who want open primaries? So why are two firehouse primary promoters attacking FCRC’s executive committee because they support the one compromise that both convention and primary people support? I think it’s pretty obvious, and it stops and ends with Schoeneman Derangement Syndrome.
Terrence does a good job of detailing the nominating method to be used. Read the rest of his post here.
