Not that I doubt that McAuliffe is winning, this is a far outlier and probably should be ignored.

Whatever happened to that Farker who claimed libfarts we're going to be "so pissed" when Booker and McAuliffe both lost their races? Posing in front of a pine tree somewhere?

If Rasmussen says its 17 then it probably more like 37

Were I the paranoid sort inclined to think Rasmussen was deliberately fudging the results, I'd suspect they're tweaking the Libertarian support down.

However, I still see no need to attribute to malice to Rasmussen when incompetence seems sufficient.

I can already hear the GOPers blaming the loss on the Sarvis, despite the fact that he probably is taking as many votes from McAwful as he is from The Cooch.

The best thing than can be said about this election is that Virginia governors are limited to one term, so whether it's Giant Turd or Unsolicited Vaginal Exam, there's a limit to the damage they can do.

CSB: I got a bunch of calls about the House of Delegates race for my district. Finally picked up and told the caller, "Look, I'm going to hold my nose and vote for Daniel, but only because LaRock is batshiat crazy. Now can you please stop calling me?".

I would doubt that the Libertarian gets 8 percent, but I wouldn't be surprised if 8 percent are telling the pollsters they will.

Both of them, but Cuccinelli wants to bring back anti-sodomy laws and tried to use them to persecute a guy for getting a blowjob.

Great difficulty: the GOP candidates for Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General are leading or tied in their respective races.

Question: should McAuliffe win the Governorship, and should Jackson win the Lieutenant Governorship, will the state legislature impeach McAuliffe in order to make Jackson the Governor?

I would doubt that the Libertarian gets 8 percent, but I wouldn't be surprised if 8 percent are telling the pollsters they will.


And to continue elaborating, the key point from this poll should be the 50% for McAuliffe.  Regardless of what the undecideds and "independents" and whatever are thinking or not thinking and saying and not saying to the pollsters, that 50% is a strong number just a couple weeks from the election.

Both of them, but Cuccinelli wants to bring back anti-sodomy laws and tried to use them to persecute a guy for getting a blowjob.


On one hand I'm sure part of it was to try to find ways to prosecute gay people, which Cuccinelli has said he should be allowed to do before.

On the other, the official reason he said he wanted the anti-sodomy law upheld was so he could do an end-run around Virginia's age of consent laws and prosecute a guy for having sex with a minor who was above the age of consent.  Even if that was the real reason, I have no idea why he couldn't do something sensible and try to raise VA's age of consent instead of trying to find ways to creatively interpret other laws to prosecute people for what would be considered lawful behavior.

If his fundy-ness doesn't turn you off, his complete disrespect for the law and desire to prosecute people for things which aren't illegal but that he doesn't agree with should.

Cuccinelli actually asked the USSC to reinstate the anti sodomy laws since he can't otherwise convict the ickey gays ... I mean child molesters

Cuccinelli took Virginia's struck-down, anti-sodomy law all the way to the supreme court, claiming that without it, he couldn't prosecute child molesters (and that it would ONLY be used to go after child molesters. Really! Despite age not being mentioned in the law at all! He PROMISES!)

Call me a libfart if you will, but I'll be damned if I let some lunatic outlaw non-missionary positions in my state.

As for Booker, I wouldn't have cared if he lost. In fact, I almost wish he did. It would mean one less fake Democrat in the Senate and add a Republican who says in public what most of his party members reserve for private fundraisers.

The funny thing is that, for this poll at least, the Sarvis+'other'+undecideds still aren't quite enough to bridge the divide. I'm willing to acknowledge that this poll might be an outlier, but with the election just 2 weeks away, things aren't looking good for the Cooch.

As brazen as forcing through a redistricting plan to disenfranchise black voters, when a black member of the senate was out of town, on Martin Luther King Day, to attend the second inauguration of the first black President?

There's always "not conservative enough" because wanting to ban oral sex and declare a fetus a person at the moment of conception are pretty moderate positions.

It's a real head-scratcher, isn't it? There was a bill to do precisely that before the Virginia State Senate a few years ago, but it died after being blocked...by then-Senator Cuccinelli.

They lose far worse with a dominionist misogynist who gives free legal advice to out of state energy providers (who funnelled him campaign funds natch) that is also implicated in the Star Scientific (tobacco dietary supplements, wtf?) scandal.  McAuliffe is just an icky professional bag-man.
 
2013-10-22 05:19:07 PM
The very first thing Cuccinelli did in office was send a nastygram to the state's universities telling them they were allowed to treat sexual status as a fireable offense, that you couldn't fire someone for being black or handicapped but being gay?  Knock yourself out.  The universities collectively told him to fark off.  Cuccinelli, being entirely spineless, backed down rather than risk the very public battle.

The man is a state-level Santorum (well, in honesty, Santorum is a state-level Santorum, but anyways), a vile human being through and through.  Even the state's republican establishment finds him repulsive.

JohnAnnArbor: From the sounds of both of these guys, no matter who wins, Virginia loses.


That's too simple. Virginia currently has a Republican Governor, a Republican House and an even split in the Senate. A McAuliffe win will completely change the character of a State government that was a key to the GOP's plans to gain strength at the state level, especially if his expected win brings more Democrats into the Virginia House on his coattails.

Cuchinelli is fighting in court to reinstate the ban unnatural sexual acts. Which includes sodomy. And by sodomy, virtually anything where tab A does not go into flange B. He claims he needs it to fight child sex trafficking.
