Cuccinelli who once had high hopes of clinging to the coat tails of the once popular Bob McDonnell, now sees the only hope for being elected Governor of Virgina by turning on his mentor.

Hat tip to Jean Anne Esselink at The New Civil Rights Movement for bringing this to our attention.

Now the mutual admiration society has disbanded. Calling it a “stunning development” Chuck Todd reported on MSNBC’s Daily Rundown this morning that Ken Cuccinelli has attacked grifter governor Bob McDonnell in an attempt to rescue his own floundering campaign for Governor.
The wheels are coming off the Cuccinelli bus.
A new Quinnipiac poll that has Cuccinelli down 6 points to Democrat Terry McAuliffe, seems to have spooked The Cooch.
Trying to deflect attention from your own shortcomings is not going to win any votes. Terry McAuliffe has to be salivating.
Late last week Cuccinelli released a new TV ad called “Facts”, in which he claimed credit that he “personally launched the investigation into Bob McDonnell and called for reform to strengthen ethics laws.” The ad fails to mention Cuccinelli also took $18,000 from Bob McDonnell’s sugar daddy. No doubt just an oversight.
I think I'll go pop some popcorn and get it ready to pass around.

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.
