I have long maintained that Ken Cuccinelli is just as insane and extreme as "Bishop" E. W. Jackson, the only difference between the two being that Jackson is less discrete about voicing his batshitery outside of closed events beyond the media's view. Over the weekend, however, Cuccinelli and Jackson appeared together at with Mark "Miscarriage is Abortion" Obenshain near Roanoke and any illusions being spread that these three extremists are not one in the same in mindset out to be totally dispelled. The Washington Post captured the true picture of this ticket. Here are highlights:
Anyone who seriously believes that jobs and Virginia's economy are Cuccinelli's top agenda is either insane or on mind altering drugs. This trio's whole agenda boils down to social issues and dragging Virginia back when gays had to be in the closet to survive, all abortions were illegal (even in cases of rape), and women were chattel property of their husbands. As for minorities, they are expected to know their place, shut up and do as they were told by their white betters. Jackson may be black, but for power and elective office, he is apparently willing to sell his soul.
Republicans Ken Cuccinelli II and E.W. Jackson this weekend disputed the notion that their respective campaigns for governor and lieutenant governor are not working together.
Cuccinelli, the sitting attorney general, and Jackson, a Chesapeake minister, sounded a message of unity and cooperation at a breakfast event Saturday near Roanoke. State Sen. Mark Obenshain (R-Harrisonburg), who is running for attorney general, also attended.
“Would you please greet a man who I have the utmost faith in and honor for,” Jackson said as he introduced Cuccinelli, according to audio posted on YouTube. “We are friends. We are working together. Don’t believe the rumors. We’re working together.”
Cuccinelli told the audience,“It’s great to be here with the whole ticket. As E.W. said, we’re running together. We’re running hard.”
After keeping the outspoken Jackson at a distance and stressing economic themes meant to attract independent voters, Cuccinelli is moving to shore up his conservative tea party base, the observers say.
After the event, Cuccinelli tweeted photos of himself, Jackson and Obenshain. “@KenCuccinelli: Had a great time in Salem this morning at the GOP Breakfast with the Republican ticket!” he tweeted.
