VB Dems noting that Rep. Glenn Nye has lost his progressive base, at least in their estimation. The customary shots at the tea party activists and Republican candidates can be found as well. Seems like the Dem activists/bloggers/grassroots in Virginia Beach are ready to sit this one out in 2010.
The thing is...Nye was never a "progressive" (such a misnomer for their political stances) in the first place. Nye is too fiscally conservative to be a Democrat that someone as lefty as VB Dems would like. Nye is as far left as Virginia Beach is going to go. Apathetic and discouraging attitudes like these are simply going to encourage the rumors that Nye may jump parties.
