Ms. Congeniality

Flash! The Watauga Democrat actually published yesterday something about State Senator Virginia Foxx that wasn't written and handed in by Virginia Foxx's flack ... that is, the truth about her effectiveness in the state senate, where she's ranked 33rd out of 50 by the N.C. Center for Public Policy Research.

Here's her quote given to reporter Scott Nicholson in response to her C-minus ranking: "I try to stick to my philosophy of less government and fewer regulations," she said. "I'm not going along to get along. Those with higher rankings try to get along with Democrats. I don't try to not get along, I just have strong beliefs."

Foxx said her beliefs include representing the party with which she's registered and following its principles and platforms.

We know they can't wait to get her in Washington!

Meanwhile, poor Gene Wilson. He ranked 107th for effectiveness among N.C. State House members ... out of 119. Always rising to lowered expectations.
