Gingrich Also Disqualified From Virginia Ballot

Yes, Virginia, there is a gorram lack of organization among our presidential candidates.

"After verification, RPV has determined that Newt Gingrich did not submit required 10K signatures and has not qualified for the VA primary," the Republican Party of Virginia announced early Saturday on its Twitter website.

Virginians' options will be Mitt Romney or Ron Paul.

I don't understand. The due date was well publicized; the number of signatures needed were known. This wasn't a pop quiz. Someone, please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall this being a problem in 2008 or 2000. The only conclusion is that this really is the weakest field we've had in decades.
