  •  As much as "Transvaginal Bob" McDonnell sux (9+ / 0-)

    ...this one's probably more about Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, one of the most far-right-wing nutjobs in high public office in America, arguably (he's also running for governor next year, and has a good chance of winning). As ProgressVA explains, this was a "decision by the Virginia Board of Health to prioritize politics over evidence-based medicine and bow to bullying from Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli by removing the 'grandfather clause' from proposed clinic regulations.'" And as the Virginia Coalition to Protect Women's health stated, "Virginia's public health officials succumb to pressure from Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli in vote to regulate abortion in Virginia." State Senator/progressive champion Donald McEachin (D) also blamed Cuccinelli, as did State Senator Mark Herring (D). Just remember, McDonnell's out as governor of Virginia in another year (1, four-year term limit in Virginia), Ken Cuccinelli is the menace we need to be focusing on for 2013!!!

    •  Do The Women Of VA Really Care? (0+ / 0-)

      Seems like two types of women support Mc Donnell & Cuccinelli.
      1. Outside of Northern VA all those ignorant redneck women in Central & Southern VA
      2. All those women who listen to their over powering men foke and vote the way they want them to vote.

      Conservatives say if you don't give the rich more money, they will lose their incentive to invest. As for the poor, they tell us they've lost all incentive because we've given them too much money. -GC
