At the tip of Virginia’s Northen Neck are the two counties of Northumberland and Lancaster. These two counties are home to a herd of stupid people . . . here are three of them.
- Catherine Crabill
- Kathy “Kat” Stansell
- Mike Baughan
Crabill is my favorite flake, but, Stansell is a close second. Crabill moved to Weems, Lancaster County, VA after an episode in New Mexico that can only be described as bizarre.
Back in 2010- 2012, Republican parties in the area were taken over by Tea Party wackjobs and to this day the Lancaster and Northumberland county Republican parties are filled with fruits and nuts. In 2009, Crabill was their nominee for the Virginia House of Delegates and she got 48% of the vote!!! During her campaign, she made a memorable speech in which she called for a violent overthrow of the upcoming election if she lost.
Crabill’s letters to the editor frequently appear in our local newspapers where she raves about everything from COVID being a hoax to Democrats being communists.
She used her Facebook page to attack a veterans’ cemetery in Texas for being — in her words — a “Satanic symbol”.
Now, she is all in on the Trump bullshit about the 2020 election having been stolen.
Kathi Stansell is a Trump-loving conspiracy nut who lives in Northumberland County VA. She is persona non grata with the local Republicans because she is such an embarrassment to them. Stansell has completely gone over to the crazy side of politics, believing and spreading every loony, bizarre conspiracy claim she has ever heard. She’s a flake. She shows up at regional events, spreading her favorite nonsense, portraying herself as an “activist.”
She finally agreed to wear a face mask in the local grocery store, otherwise, she considers the COVID virus to be a hoax. Here’s a photo of her ratty old Honda with her hand-lettered rear window sign that reads “DO SOCIALISM DISTANCING.”
Now, she has outdone herself. Here’s the background. Northumberland County is on the tip of a peninsula known as Virginia’s Northen Neck — bordered on the north by the Potomac River, the east by the Chesapeake Bay, and the south and west by other Northern Neck counties. John Haynes is a retired Marine who, while he seems to be a fairly intelligent guy, is himself given over to the loony side of politics. Haynes self-publishes a monthly free newspaper, The Northern Neck Sentinel. Stansell, writing under the name “Kat Stansell” is a frequent contributor, specializing in the latest bullshit rumor and conspiracy crap she has picked up from the voices in her head.
To see what I mean, go to the Northern Neck Sentinel online — November 2020 edition. Click on the icon in the lower right corner of the screen that enlarges the Sentinel to full screen. In the lower right corner of the front page is an article by Stansell in which she repeats the absolutely loony claim about THE HAMMER.
According to the conspiracy that is running wild on rightwing loon Twitter, Facebook and blogs, THE HAMMER was a supercomputer developed by the CIA to rig foreign elections. And — wouldn’t you know it — Obama and the Democrats found out about THE HAMMER and are now using it to steal elections. According to Stansell, Obama used THE HAMMER to win the 2012 election and now THE HAMMER has stolen the 2020 election for Biden. (Of course, she doesn’t explain why Democrats did not use THE HAMMER to elect Hillary Clinton in 2016, or, to take over state legislatures and governorships . . . . . but, hey, don’t let a little logic get in the way of a good wild-eyed conspiracy.)
THE HAMMER is a total bullshit story promoted by a failed CIA contractor who has a long history of promoting conspiracy claims.

And we Democrats are supposed to reason with these dumb muthahfukahs, we are supposed to be sympathetic with them, empathetic to their condition. Never happen. There is no way to reason with a 2-year-old, or, with someone as bizarre as this woman.
Stansell is big in the Virginia Tea Party — a failing group that is barely on life support.
She’s all in with the gunnuts.
Stansell is the only member of a group she calls United in Strength for America, — don’t bother to click on the link, it goes nowhere.
The proprietor of Baughan Tire and Automotive in Lottsburg, Northumberland County, VA, he is a huge Trump supporter, to the point of having lost all contact with reality.
His Facebook page is now filled with pile upon pile of bullshit claiming the 2020 election was stolen from Trump.
He constantly raves about how “things are about to happen” — of course, he never tells us what is about to happen. His latest rant repeats some bullshit story about truckloads of ballot being shipped into New York or Pennsylvania or something like that. He’s claiming that the Supreme Court will reverse the 2020 election, thereby putting Trump in office for another four years.
Baughan is a laughing stock — a clown — however, he is surrounded by others just like himself who believe the 2020 election was stolen, that Trump will rise from the grave to save their souls.
Mike’s latest contribution to the ignorant side of the world was his mission to supply Trump campaign signs to the county.
