Cross posted from Blue Virginia

Thanks to Ben "Not Larry Sabato" Tribbett; here's some more fascinating video - which I've summarized with a few illustrative quotes - from the Virginia Republican Party Convention a few weeks ago. Just remember, these are the (extreme, sex-and-abortion-obsessed people) who nominated Ken Cuccinelli, EW Jackson and Mark Obenshain. After watching this video, I think you'll understand why they did!

*"I'm not a big fan of contraception, frankly...pretty soon I guess we'll hand [morning-after pills] out to babies."
*"Millions and millions of babies that are being murdered, slaughtered."
*"These are people who chose to take human life for a living..."
*"It's the abortion issue, it's the mass slaughter of innocent children that I believe that EW and Cuccinelli as well are against."
*"One thing...would be to ensure that there's never any funding for Planned Parenthood or for any type of family planning clinics in Virginia...I think that's something, if we do elect a Republican Lt. Governor, we would be able to perhaps get that through."
*"...our state is very supportive of the foundation of marriage being between one man and one woman."
*"EW Jackson...is truly Obama's worst nightmare."
*EW Jackson is "not offended by color issues."
*"Northern Virginia ought to be cut off from the state."

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.
