When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

On Thursday, Governor Bob McDonnell took the stand in his own defense. It was Day 19 of his corruption trial, and the time had finally come for him to tell his side of the story.

As one Politico reporter said, "He didn't simply throw his wife, Maureen, under a bus to keep himself out of prison. He laid her down gently on the road, with a pillow and blanket."

All indicators point to - that Transvaginal Bob did a wonderful job of playing the sad song for the jury about his marriage - yet this "probe" specialist wasn't so successful when it came to explaining his acceptance of gifts, trips and airplane rides.

Transvaginal Bob is contending that Maureen was the one who instigated the plethora of gifts befalling him, and since they were not speaking at the time, he couldn't couldn't possibly have conspired with her because they weren't husband and wife any longer.

If Transvaginal Bob was indeed as astounded by the loans and inappropriate gifts that he is portraying on the stand, then why did he not give them back immediately, instead of waiting to see if he was caught?

"Conservative Christian values"...maybe not so much.
