Jim Webb’s head just showed up on my TV screen, during the Rachel Maddow Show. “Finally,” I thought,”He’s going to come out swinging for Obama!”. Umm, no. He was there to defend retiring Sen. Chuck Hagel, in the way of his comments about Palin’s incompetence. And while that’s a completely honorable thing to do, I still have to wonder – where’s Jim Webb? He’s the one who was hailed at the great white hope for Democrats in Virginia. So why is it that it’s Terry Freakin’ McAuliffe that’s going on a tour of Virginia (ostensibly in support of Obama, but mostly to find out that the idea of him running for governor is a complete joke)? I know Virginia’s Democrats have a tradition of identifying themselves as anything *but* Democrats, but this is getting ridiculous . . .
