At Radically Rational, we’re all about “Making Simple Sanity Sexy Again.”
That’s why I’m actually encouraged by the result of the gubernatorial race in Virginia.

Glenn Youngkin proved you don’t have to be Trump Trash to win as a Republican. That’s gotta be a good thing. Youngkin ran a smart race, and with the exception of the obligatory false alarm dog-whistle about Critical Race Theory (it isn’t being taught), kept his campaign between the lines and issue-based.
And he won, convincingly. That may embolden other actual Republicans and actual Conservatives heading into next year’s mid-terms, and even into 2024’s presidential race. Maybe you don’t have to kiss Orange Ass after all.
That’s a step toward sanity.

Sanity moved the chains last night. Maybe it can be the start of a scoring drive.
Now, forgive me. Gotta go. Gotta go look for JFK, Jr.
