FTA: According toPolitico, Cuccinelli made a few short remarks, not mentioning Cruz's name once, then left the event before Cruz got up to speak.The two politicians did speak backstage, where Cuccinelli apparently urged Cruz to work to end the government shutdown.


Ha ha haaaaaaaa

"win the messaging fight over the shutdown if the people just speak out loudly enough."

Remember kids, it's not about the message, it's about how loud you say it.

Neither one wished to be photographed with the other.

Actually, I bet Cruz wished to be photographed with Cuccinelli. I've read that Cruz spent his speech praising Cuccinelli.

The joke here is that he's just as f*cked in the head than Ted Cruz, but with none of that Canadian gringo clusterbomb charm.

The actual Politico article has this aaaaamazing GEM:

Cruz:  "And that last characteristic in particular is a rare, rare commodity in elected life. There are so many elected officials in both parties that desperately crave the adulation of the media and the intelligentsia."

Last night during SNL I saw one of his ads, which featured a black woman saying "Ken Cuccinelli does not want to oppress women, that's absurd!".  He's obviously trying to appeal to the middle-road now, a kinder gentler less derpy facade.  He knows that he can't depend on the SW VA Tea Party squad to bring him victory.

Cruz's name is soon to become political poison and Cooch, while not the brightest bulb on the tree, knows this.

A political bruising.

That's what Senor Eduardo is cruising towards.

But Cruz is also currently the fan fave coverboy on the October Teaderper edition of Tiger Beat so Cooch speaks at the gig to be safe and then leaves ASAP w/o a photo-op to be even safer.

The Teaderpers pogroms and purity tests versus the wrath of a nation fed up by dysfunctional government as the new normal.

Rock meet hard place.

Devil meet the deep blue sea.

He's still a Republican. How smart could he really be?

If Ted Crud thinks he's smart he's probably not.

It would've been 100% but they counted Cruz (R-tarded) as Hispanic

C'mon guys, don't get upset over Ted Cruz (well, except for the singlehandedly-farking-up-the-country-with-his-own-narcissism thing).  People like him and Rand Paul and Paul Ryan and Scott Walker are going to be the Bachmanns and Perrys and Santorums of 2016 (but not the Gingriches, Gingrich himself will be 2016's Gingrich).  Think how boring the next 2-year-long election is going to be without another crazy-train clusterfark of primary debates to keep us entertained through the conventions.

In 2012 we made the mistake of letting all the best tea partiers crash and burn too soon, so by the end all that was left was Rmoney and Newt.  In 2016 we must instead recruit an army of left-wing billionaires (those exist, right?) to singlehandedly fund the campaigns of Cruz and the others like Adelson did for Gingrich, so they can keep campaigning long after less delusional men would've admitted defeat.

why would anyone want to be photographed with Cruz? I feel like his old high school classmates are tearing his pages out of their yearbooks

Probably why there isn't a video recording of it.

Is this how he always reacts to Canadi-Americans? What is he, some kind of canuckophobe?
 
2013-10-06 07:18:04 PM
Cucinelli is a tea party darling.  If there's an ideological soul mate, it Cruz.

If you Virginians wonder how Cucinelli will govern, think of Ted Cruz.

Negative. Real spine. Cruz has shown too much eagerness to compromise, the farkin' rino.

You betcha.

There is no greater example of the Republicans ignoring reality than this fight over the ACA. Even their claim that most Americans want it gone is a lie. By a slim margin, it is UNPOPULAR with Americans, but that's because a sizable percentage of that group are unhappy with it because it DIDN'T GO FAR ENOUGH. Take them out of the equation, and you have a minority of Americans who don't like the law simply because they were against any change to healthcare in the US. That's why you have a minority of Americans in favor of defunding it - because the percentage who don't like it because it didn't go far enough are still unwilling to give up the progress that it made toward getting us to a better system.

So you have a group of 40 Tea Qaeda congressmen holding the entire country hostage over doing something most of the country does not want. To hell with them.

Remember, Cuccinelli wants to be governor of Virginia, where this shutdown is having a disproportionate effect.  VA won't forget this on election day.

Then f*ck them. They shouldn't have listened to him unless they were prepared to handle the fallout. It's no better than the Republican dipshiats in Congress trying to reopen the parts of the government that piss people off the most for not having. It's like they all missed the lesson about consequences that every child learns when they're four years old.

The sad/scary thing is that to the average right wing turd-for-a-brains, Cruz is the Hero who stood up to the compromise and sense of decency in Washington, and their True Savior has finally arrived to show them the way towards the glorious Teabagger Ubber Alles future that Republican Jesus had promised.

This little psycho is going to run for POTUS in 2016 and there's going to be throngs of nutbags who will help him win the nomination.


This nightmare won't be over even if the debt ceiling crisis is finished. This is only the opening chapter of a new and darker form of republicanism than it had ever been before. Count on it.

Every time I hear Ken Cuccinelli, I feel extremely bad for him. He's more conservative than Bob McDonnell and that has folks in Northern Virginia fearing him. I think we are seeing a change in politics in the state of Virginia as the Northern Counties continue to grow in population and sprawl southward into Richmond, Norfolk, and Charlottesville.

As a Republican, I wouldn't vote for Cuccinelli. He's just too extreme.

Also a valid point but the fact remains at this point most politicians would rather be mistaken for child molester than a friend of Rafael Cruz.

Charlottesville has seemed to be rather blue already, but that would make sense, since it's a college town (and they tend to vote D more often than not).

It is my sincerest hope that whatever way this settles, this year does not end without the FBI marching into some GOP offices and pulling people out in handcuffs.  Cruz needs to be at the front of the line, possibly with Bachmann right alongside as well.  I'd love to see Boehner earn himself a shiny pair of chained bracelets as well, but I think he'll drink himself into a coma before that happens.
