I continue to hope that Democrats do not get cocky and/or indifferent and fail to get out and vote on election day. It is VITAL that the GOP slate of Cuccinelli, Jackson and Obenshain lose, but that they lose disastrously. Over and over again we hear whiners in the GOP claim that the GOP loses because it fails to nominate sufficiently conservative candidates. In this year's Virginia GOP slate ALL of the nominees are far to the right of Attila the Hun, so if they go down in flames, that tired platitude will go down with them and hopefully send a message to the GOP nationwide. Politico looks at what one can only hope is Ken Cuccinelli's rapidly collapsing campaign. Here are excerpts:
Republicans can’t believe this is happening: Democrat Terry McAuliffe — whose controversial business dealings and past life as a party moneyman make him a walking negative ad — has taken command of the Virginia governor’s race.More than a dozen interviews last week with longtime Republican insiders around the Commonwealth yielded near-unanimous consensus that their candidate, state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, lost significant ground over the summer and would lose if the election were held today.
