Let's get it out of the way:

How does the old saying go: "When you lie down with dogs, you get fleas" or something like that?

As long as they have the candidate in their pocket the big money interests don't care what letter comes after his name.

Campaign finance reform, the repeal of Citizens United, and major restrictions on lobbying would do more to clean up our political landscape and put the voice of the people back into government than any other changes.  Of course, since those in the positions of power have gotten there through abuses of all of the above, I'm not sure how we go about that.

I hate, hate, hate the fact that the Dems are running that piece of shiat McAuliffe.

Cuccinelli is a tool, and the reek of possible corruption that has been wafting off of both him and the governor for the last month or two is really not helping him try and take the mansion.

And as for social issues, many Republicans are obsessed over them. After running in 2011 on "jobs, jobs, jobs", the first bill introduced in 2012 was this stinking pile of sh*t:

And then there was this, the transvaginal crap:

god, he's just awful. i can't stand the man. unctuous, smarmy, and happy to lie right into the camera. he gives me the hives.

but cuccinelli is an absolute unmitigated piece of shiat. i'd rather have mcauliffe installed as governor for life than see that human excrement occupy the governor's mansion for five minutes.

I'm not saying he's awesome, because he definitely isn't, but what do you have against him that you feel so strongly about it? Actually curious.

I know nothing, really, about McAuliffe, other than he's not Cuccinelli, so that alone garners my support.

"...and much of the large business community that funds campaigns would probably prefer to see social issues go away..."

Well, bad news.  You either get the pro-competition-only-95%-in-the-pocket-of-big-business Democrats and no social issues, or continue to lose with abortiogeddon-100%-in-pocket-etc-etc Republicans. Looks like some businesses in this state have finally learned that doing the right thing and looking out for #1 aren't always mutually exclusive, but so long as you guys continue to provide anyfunding to Republicans, you ensure that social issues will be a mainstay of the political process because they can't win on any single other issue.

Somehow, I'm not convinced that Cuccinelli's desire to ban blowjobs is helping his campaign.

in his capacity as head of the DNC, he just always came off as a slimy, smarmy über-politiican. willing to say anything - however blatantly false - simply to support his side. now, i realize that michael steele and reince priebus do the same thing, and it's a part of the job (though i don't remember howard dean being so slimy), but there was always just something extra-scummy about terry.

Here's the thing:

Right-wingers in general may talk a big game about economic issues and immediately discard them for social bullcrap, but right-wingers that own large businesses (or even small ones) that talk a big game about economic issues are  entirely serious, and likely to be severely disappointed in you if you don't actually produce because you're faffing around with random bullshiat of no economic relevance.

And cunnilingus, too.

I'll bet Cuccinelli's wife, in order to not have a transaction trail leading to bulk purchases of batteries, has a specially designed RabbitTM vibrator hidden in the bottom drawer of her dresser that is powered remotely by solar panels disguised to look like roof shingles.

Mr. Cuccinelli: "Looks like it's going to be a sunny day without a cloud in the sky.  Praise Jesus."
Mrs. Cuccinelli (Sardonicus grin on her face):  "It sure does, honey.  Praise Jesus."

Perhaps it's not my place to say, but I'm guessing that Ken Cuchinelli is the sort to explore the limits of his gag reflex on Saturday at the I-95 truck stop and then absolve himself entire giving confession on Sunday.

It's good to see the Big Business and Christian Right wings of the Republican party turning on each other. The alliance between those two plus the militarist/statist wing has been the root of most of the evil in this country since the Reagan administration.

Publicly shaming big donors to conservative/bigoted politicians is probably a good political strategy. Especially if they are in the hospitality industry like the dude from the article...

My sister will vote -R because anyone else will COME AND TAKE HER GUNS!!!!

According to her twisted logic, she is much more afraid of a -D taking her guns than an -R outlawing abortion.

She has spent most of her adult life in TX and VA.

you see how that's working out for her.

It really pisses me off that lazy reporters still consider the Mackinac Institute unbiased, or at least, enough to quote them without explaining where the hell the quote is coming from.  I'll grant them this, they did pick a great name to pass off as such.

What bothers me is that this COULD end up being a tight race - because McAuliffe is not terribly likable.  But Cooch is exactly the type of guy that will wage all out Bible-based war on everything and I think business types would rather deal with McAuliffe because of that.  The idea that Cooch will give up social issues to actually try to attract jobs to the state (we're doing OK but could be doing better) is ludicrous.  And his running mate Lt. Governor is flat out, batshiat crazy.....and he wasn't appointed by the Republican party, he won a vote of Republican party officials.  It's the worst slate of party officials I've ever seen in this state....Bill Bolling, as Lt. Governor, is very sane by comparison.  But business just wants sanity for the most part - and attracting better workers means not pissing off a bunch of them to leave because of crap like the social agenda Cooch has.

But I'm afraid is that the closer this election gets, the easier it will be for donors to play both sides against the middle - and be sure that both sides know they contributed, while letting Cooch get back into it.  We'll see but the Democrats better not take it for granted that McAuliffe will win - they better work as if their lives depended upon it.
