McCain Campaign: Northern Virginia Isn’t Real Virginia

real 1 |ˈrē(ə)l|

2 (of a substance or thing) not imitation or artificial; genuine : the earring was presumably real gold.
• true or actual : his real name is James | this isn’t my real reason for coming.
• [ attrib. ] (of a person or thing) rightly so called; proper : he’s my idea of a real man | Jamie is my only real friend.

That’s what the Dictionary on my Mac says “Real” means. But, to hear the McCain campaign say it, Northern Virginia isn’t “Real” Virginia:

Oh c’mon, this is just as much bullshit of not liking NoVA people saying they’re from the DC area.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.

  1. Funny that you didn’t have your event in the “Real Virginia”. Perhaps someone on your campaign organizing committee figured out that there are more “Real Virginians” in this fake area? Maybe those fake people can actually vote after all…

  2. “Real Virginia” does not seem to mind getting a disproportionate amount of state spending sent their way. We’re getting about 50 cents on the dollar of what we send to Richmond.

  3. Think about how Las Vegas feels when the rest of the state is Republican. Is everything in Nevada but Las Vegas the “real” Nevada. It is the same here. Well, I guess the ballot will demonstrate where real Virginia resides when the election is over.

    *I acutally grew up in Nevada (northern Nevada) and it seems that most of the attention goes to Las Vegas when there are a lot more things to like about Nevada. Oh yeah, and I am a liberal, in case there was any question about that.
