Virginia Attorney General Mark Earley will offer online news and views from the Republican National Convention in Philadelphia this week via his Web site. 

Yo, Virginia!

Just when you thought political coronations couldn't get any more exciting, Virginia Attorney General Mark Earley will offer online news and views from the Republican National Convention in Philadelphia this week via his Web site.

Earley - like Lt. Gov. John Hager, a candidate for governor and a state delegate to the convention - will host half-hour-a-day online chats during the GOP's July 31-Aug. 4 festival.

Quintin Kendall, political director of the Earley 2001 exploratory committee (the AG has yet to announce), says Earley wants to show off his new site: "A good e-campaign can really jump-start a campaign." But while MarkEarley.com totally blows away the under-construction JohnHager.com, the AG's not courting the computer-geek vote only: Postcard invitations to Earley's online chats use a famous fictional Philly fighter's image in pre-"Yo, Adrienne!" exultation.

"Attorney General Earley is a big fan of boxing" and "the very nature of the sport, the one-on-one combat" is similar to the party's nomination fight, Kendall explains. One boo-boo: The Rocky statue, shown on the postcards to be outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art, was moved to the First Union Spectrum more than a decade
