Sun Rises Today, Politics at General Assembly.

Hmmm, interesting dust-up over at the Virginia House of Delegates, which just denied a judgeship to a deputy prosecutor in Richmond.

Story goes like this:  Dems and liberals propose an open homosexual with an aggressively activist past for a judgeship for which literally dozens of non-controversial candidates abound.  Conservatives decline invitation to annoint the guy. 

Dems and libs profess outrage and shock that conservatives would deny, for political and policy reasons, the candidate they pushed for political and policy reasons.

That's it in a nutshell.  Judicial candidates get axed all the time for political reasons.  

Nothing to see here.
