Open Thread - Brian Moran's Accomplishments as Chair of the Democratic Party of Virginia

Not much going on today... quite a debate on Twitter about Brian Moran's tenure as Chair of the Democratic Party of Virginia. I think we can add to the debate if we list some of his accomplishments as chair... problem is, I know of none. And that is what this blog post is for... please comment away if you take this step.

Brian Moran LOL News Roundup!!!

It's been a while since we posted here at Brian Moran Watch... we have been busy, but we're about to crank it up again.

The Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU) reported today that Harris Miller has stepped down as Chief Executive Officer and President of the organization. The news has already hit a major higher education trade journal. Brian Moran, the Executive Vice-President and General Counsel (and Chairman of the Democratic Party of Virginia), was named interim President. These are the kinds of schools that Brian represents.

At first I laugh because I can't believe it... and then I really feel bad for students, many of whom will dig themselves into so much debt, they won't find a way out because of these predatory proprietary schools... and the DPVA chair is representing this group smh.

A tip of the hat to Blue Virginia (Lowell Feld) and Not Larry Sabato (Ben Tribbett), respectively, for getting the news out quickly.

What has happened to the Democratic Party of Virginia?

Brian Moran and Social Media. WTF.

So, our "dude", Brian Moran, as you might know, was "chosen" to lead the Democratic Party of Virginia. You know I have a few issues with Brian... like the fact that he can't win his own brother's Congressional district in a governor primary. SMH, and he's the Democratic party chair in Virginia.

One of the biggest weaknesses in the last couple of statewide elections in Virginia was that Democrats (and partcularly, the state leadership) had no plan to get the young people out to vote (see Creigh Deeds). When you have a plan to get young people out to vote, you can win statewide elections in Virginia... just ask Barack Obama.

One of the best ways to reach younger voters with your political message (not that Brian is using any other venue) is through social media... the fastest growing social media network in the United States and worldwide is Twitter. I have an account at HokieGuru. Guess what? Your Democratic Party Chairmen in Virginia is Twitter account free. The only sign of Brian Moran Twitter action is a parody account.

SMH!!! This is 2011, Brian... let's get it in gear!!! SMH!!!

Welcome to Brian Moran Watch

This blog will get going here soon... the author, @HokieGuru, is in graduate school at Georgetown right now (and has a lot going on), but the central purpose is to hold Brian Moran (the Democratic Party Chairman of Virginia) accountable. As I wrote on Virginia Democrat, no one has any idea what Brian's message is... or what type of message he is pushing... but if we put some spotlight on the subject, maybe he'll start working on it, eh? Have a great day... our Brian Moran watch will kick it in high gear very soon.
