Corey is just the gift that keeps on giving. The Washington Post in its Virginia Political blog section quotes Corey:
The always-outspoken Stewart repeated his remarks today, and said he doesn’t worry that McDonnell may back Allen because voters already showed they don’t support Allen by voting him out of office in 2006.
“They’re old friends,” Stewart said. “George Allen has a lot of old friends. It’s not Bob McDonnell who chooses the next senator from Virginia. It’s the electorate. … And they have already decided Allen had a mediocre term as senator. He needs to move on.”
“I think a lot of George Allen,” McDonnell said on his monthly radio show Tuesday on WTOP. “I served with him in the legislature when he was governor. He was the most dynamic governor of the modern age. I think he was an exceptional governor. He was a very good senator.”
McDonnell also has said he probably won’t endorse anyone. Perhaps discretion is the better part of valor. Maybe Corey needs to emulate the governor. He just keeps digging himself in deeper and deeper. If he keeps it up, about 10% of the population will support him, if he is lucky. That’s won’t send Mr. Stewart to Washington.
