  Hat Tip to Digby for pointing to this video from a group keeping an eye on Ken "the Cooch" Cuccinelli, Virginia's gift to crazy. They're referring to this particular bit of over reach Cuccinelli's tried to pull off with as Attorney General for Viirginia. (from the wikipedia entry)

On August 23, 2010, Cuccinelli issued a legal opinion concluding that the Virginia Board of Health had the power to require abortion clinics to meet hospital standards, even though the General Assembly had rejected legislation to achieve the same result. Under the law at the time abortion clinics could perform first trimester abortions, while second and third trimester abortions were performed in hospitals. From 2002 to 2008, bills were introduced that sought to treat abortion clinics as "ambulatory surgery centers" and require them to meet hospital-type regulations, but the bills did not pass.[16]
Get out the smelling salts and dust off the fainting couch - they use the "V" word a lot. (Turn on captions to see the lyrics)

"Hands OFF, Crazy" Rallying cry that sums it up nicely.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
