Commonwealth Watch, Elephant Ears, and Commonwealth Conservative have all posted about the rampant speculation over Russ Potts' future, so who am I to ignore the tide of blogger opinion.
As much as all of us would LOVE to see Potts go quietly, don't count on it. This man is so delusional that he believes himself to be the ultimate arbiter of all that is good and right with politics in Virginia. Potts views the attacks against him as validation of his importance, not evidence of his idiosyncrasy. It is actually disturbing to me that 2% of Virginia voters actually voted for the guy for Governor, but I guess there is no accounting for taste.
The best comment I have seen so far on this situation was made in response to Chad Dotson's post by someone calling themselves "Valley Redneck":
Y'all been to Winchester lately? There's the smell of blood in the water... you can't throw a rock without hitting Mark Tate.
Jill Holtzman Vogel raises money by walking into a room and saying "Russ Potts." The cash flies from all corners.
That's funny no matter who you are.
