A holiday note for our Virginia readers

Rosalind Helderman

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through Virginny
Not a creature was stirring, not even Mike Henry.
The senators and delegates were snug in their beds
Content after New Year's, they'll kill Kaine's plans dead.
Kaine relaxed with family, at peace with it all,
Next job all lined up: Protect Dems in the fall.
Bob McDonnell in Richmond rested as well,
Hard times to come, but, for now, feeling swell.
Moran, McAuliffe and Creigh Deeds, too
Perhaps quieter than hoped for, but quiet's their due.
Warner and Webb in the morning said "aye!"
The GOP won't forget, but tonight they'll let lie.
Bruce Allen's returned to stop Redskins' collapse
Could George be next? The answer: "Perhaps."
But not tonight, nor tomorrow will comebacks be mounted
Plenty of time to come for careers to be counted.
Here on this site too, we're preparing to rest
So when the new folks arrive, we can be at our best.
We thank all our readers who've bookmarked our site
Even bloggers who call for our doom--that's their right.
In a few days we'll return, more Virginia Politics in sight.
So: Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
