  •  He's the candidate, for better or worse. (10+ / 0-)

    Kind of reminds me of Blagojevich getting through the primary in Illinois. We all knew it was just a matter of time before he fucked up and got caught.

    Maybe Terry will still pull this one out. I hope he at least finishes his term if he does win.

    Calling other DKos members "weenies" is a personal insult and therefore against site rules.

    •  let's assume for a moment some validity (8+ / 0-)

      to the charges being floated.

      Besides the fact that Hillary's brothers have a bit of history of coloring outside the lines.

      You would then have on the one hand McAuliffe who was involved in pushing the limits on a small scale where if anyone was cheated it was overseas investors versus Cooch who was basically selling his office and in whose voting tried to rip off taxpayers.

       I'm not sure how it plays out.

      And the question might be who if anyone is charged.  And if so, whether it is civil or criminal - and we can look at how rarely the SEC has gone with anything criminal in Wall Street's major rip off of the economy.  Or has the DOJ.

        Nobody from any third parties are running? Maybe a grassroots campaign for someone other than these two idiots would do more good than voting for the D.

        •  Just found our, Robert Sarvis (0+ / 0-)

          Ex-Republican, running as a (big-L) Libertarian. I know nothing about him, except that apparently he's getting a lot of the "both these other guys suck" polling.

        •  The seat is too important, and the election too (0+ / 0-)

          close, to play the third party game.  It has to be McAuliffe, because Cuccinelli is way too extreme.

          This is Bush v. Gore, except that McAuliffe is a lot sleazier than Gore ever was or will be, and that Cuccinelli is a thousand times more dangerous than Bush.  If you're in VA, you_have_ to vote for McAuliffe.  And hope that he can get enough others to pull the lever for him as well.

          The alternative is unthinkable.

      •  Cmon, he's worse than that (4+ / 0-)

        I do realize that video being peddled about on the commercials is by Americans for (rich people's) Prosperity, but I did watch it and sadly, there's not much there I disagree with.

        Once Perriello bowed out, we were stuck with this bum, but I tell you I'm going to be learning how to cast my vote using my left big toe, because I'm going to need both hands holding my nose at the polls to vote for him.

    •  Depends. If this gets nasty, he might have to (0+ / 0-)

      pull out of running.  I mean, they haven't yet had the primary, and until that happens, his name isn't on the ballot.
