With a battle brewing over the chairmanship of the Loudoun County Republican Committee, let me say that I, like many blogging about it, don't know Strother and don't trust Sell. Though he has certainly put in his time, I fear that Sell will bring back the divisiveness of the Protic era. And, since I haven't even heard of anything she's done (as also seems to the case with other LCRC members), I wonder about Strother's agenda.
All that said, I'm reminded of a saying about the college faculty politics: they're so vicious because there is so little at stake. That's not that the LCRC chairmanship is nothing to care about; it's just that so many people get so worked up about something that, in the end, just isn't worth it.
