RICHMOND -- Sen. Jill Holtzman Vogel, R-Upperville, has been named deputy whip for the Senate Republican Caucus.

In a news release from the caucus, Republican Leader Sen. Thomas K. Norment Jr., R-James City, says that Vogel has been a caucus leader "and an effective conservative voice" for the three years she's been in office.

"Her strong work ethic has earned her the respect of Senators from both sides of the aisle," he says. "As our Deputy Whip, she will play a vital role in helping us advance our conservative agenda and positive message."

In a Friday afternoon phone call, Vogel said she is taking the place of the former deputy whip, Sen. Robert Hurt, who had represented Farmville and was recently elected to the U.S. House.

"For me, [the appointment] was a great honor because I have been very involved and I've worked closely with the leadership on lots and lots of issues," she said. "It's extra work, but I'm happy to do it."

Who needs more political propaganda celebrating the goodness of party longevity? Too many Chiefs and Indians concentrating on re-election. By design, government work never gets done while self-congratulatory cotton candy blather fills this newspaper.

What is being done to reduce spending, lower taxes, and create jobs? Nothing. Stop climbing the social ladder and go to work.
