Not Larry makes the front page....

Not Larry Sabato is featured in the Roanoke Times story on the staff member on Anne Crockett-Stark's campaign who was dismissed for disparaging remarks about the people of Southwestern Virginia.
From the Roanoke Times;
Staffer talks trash about S.W. Virginia
And no, Not Larry did not give away his identity, not even to Paul Dellinger. Brian Patton, however, is quoted, but it appears to be a quote from his site instead of an answer to the reporter.

Whoever is behind the "Not Larry Sabato" Web site is remaining anonymous, but it seems to bash representatives of both major political parties about equally.

Its name is derived from the frequently quoted Larry Sabato, who is director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics.

The postings attracted a flurry of online comments, including some doubting that any campaign worker would publicize such sentiments.

"As much as I would like to believe it, I just cannot," wrote Brian Patton, whose blog supports Democratic candidates. "No one is this stupid."

And finaly, this excerpt from her "Fear and Loathing in Wytheville" blog was prescient, in an amusingly ironic way.

"My next career move will definitely be based on location, not necessarily vocation… ”

Yes, dear, you were so right. I would say this career move was most definately based on location.
