At the closing of the polls tomorrow, the Republican Primary elections will be over.  So consider the gloating: EW Jackson’s Closing Argument Is Essentially That Nick Freitas, Corey Stewart and Their Supporters Hate Each Other’s Guts ( Ask yourself what it says about us.

Here is a reblog.

Gotta love this closing argument by E.W. Jackson in the Virginia GOP U.S. Senate primary (see video, below). In short, Jackson makes the case that although there are “three good people running,” “my two competitors…Nick Freitas, Corey Stewart…they don’t like or respect each other; in fact, they quite DISLIKE each other…if either of them wins the nomination, there’s going to be bad blood as soon as the election is over.”

According to Jackson, “the reality is that Nick and Corey can not STAND each other…the accusations that have been flying back and forth – ‘racist’, ‘never Trumper’, ‘sanctuary city supporter’…each of them is going to have a hard time supporting the other because so many ugly things have been said.” For once, I actually agree with Jackson on something; no doubt that Corey and Nick despise each other.

As an added bonus, Jackson rips into former Lt. Governor Bill Bolling for costing the Cooch/Jackson/Obenshain ticket the 2013 Virginia statewide election (according to Jackson, Bolling went around “bad mouthing the ticket, bad mouthing Ken, getting everybody that he could NOT to vote for our ticket”).

Finally, Jackson challenges Virginia Republicans: “Be honest with yourself, do you think that the people who support Nick Freitas are going to enthusiastically behind Corey Stewart? Do you think that the people who support Corey Stewart are going to enthusiastically behind Nick Freitas?” The short answer is, of course they won’t. But every Virginia Republican voter can, in Jackson’s view, unify behind…yep, him. As I said, you’ve gotta love this stuff…if you’re a Virginia Democrat, that is. 🙂

Consider the gloating. Consider the joy of a Democrat in Republican division.

Is E. W. Jackson correct about the strife? Yes. Would he be a better choice than one of the other two candidates? Perhaps, but the argument he makes in this video is not by itself sufficient.

Most likely, either Nick Freitas or Corey Stewart will win the primary. Then we will have a problem. What if we have a sore loser? Then for the sake of family, friends, and countrymen, we will have to ignore that man. We will have to remember the alternative, gloating Democrats. When people take joy in our troubles — an ugly feud — they are not our friends.

So pick your candidate; Nick Freitas, E. W. Jackson, or Corey Stewart; and vote. Then thank the candidates who lost, and get behind the winner, whoever he may be.


  1. Another case in point for the GOP-all 17 signed a document they would support the winner of the primaries. And we know how that turned out. But in spite of it, I’m thanking God He allowed President Trump to win! He’s been the best person for our country for such a time as this!!!

    1. Done a surprisingly good job. Perfect? No, but a lot better so far than we expected.

      Keep a weather eye on the immigration bills Congress is working on. Can’t trust most of those guys and gals.

  2. Excellent insight, Tom! And yes, Jackson is right about this. Nasty primaries make it difficult for the party to come together for the general election. Something needs to change with our primary process. Sigh.

    1. Conventions too! Someone once said:

      Sure, politics ain’t bean-bag. ‘Tis a man’s game, an’ women, childer, cripples an’ prohybitionists ‘d do well to keep out iv it. — Finley Peter Dunne (from =>

      The man was a humorist, of course. But I sort of wonder. Has it gotten rougher since we got the ladies involved? Some of those female prohybitionists ran around with axes.
