Something Akin to Academics

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.


  1. I beg to differ, Lloyd! Whoever takes the reigns will have a lot of say in hoe the LCRC selects candidates for the next round of local elections. Believe me, if some of these people have their way they will select candidates so far from the mainstream that we'll be stuck with some of these dead weight current supervisors forever. This is important for Loudoun County, and for future statewide races since Loudoun is so critical to statewide success now.

  2. I agree that it's important, but not as important as many would think. Glen did a fantastic job and I hope that Candace will, too. I just don't know her, so I'm not sold yet.
