A small conversation started at Too Conservative about many Republicans lack of support of Jim Gilmore in the US Seante race. Whatever excuse people use, I just cannot accept it. To me, he is our candidate and the US Senate and the country is far better off with a Republican Seante than a solidified Dem one. This mind-split of many Republicans, sadly too many up here in Northern Virginia, is one of the most frustrating things I've had to deal with in my short time active in politics. The main criticism I hear up here is that Gilmore is a "jerk." Perhaps, I don't know the man personally. But I also personally don't care. Lets break it down.
