What Ken Kookinelli Was Up To Today (Photos, Video)


Where was Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli today? I’m not sure about his entire schedule, but for a couple hours, I caught him speaking to a few hundred anti-“Obamacare” Tea Partiers at the “Road to Repeal” rally at Upper Senate Park. Needless to say, he wasn’t speaking at the much larger Reason Rally (UPDATE: I hear there were upwards of 20,000 people at the Reason Rally vs. a few hundred – maybe 1,000 – at the Tea Party rally. Guess which one the corporate/conservative media covered? Hmmmm.), which I happened to run into (I didn’t have any idea there even was such a thing as a “Reason Rally,” but live and learn I guess!) as I walked to the Smithsonian Metro stop.

I did find it encouraging that so many more people were out on a rainy Saturday to rally for something positive than to angrily rant and rave about how “Obamacare” (actually, almost all of the Affordable Care Act was taken from the Heritage Foundation, the 1993 Republican health care bill, and “Romneycare,” but details details – heh) is unconstitutional, an infringement on people’s liberty, the end of the “greatest health care system known to man,” the beginning of the end of FREEDOM!!!!, and other assorted Limbaugh/Faux falsehood and insanity.

P.S. There are more photos (actually, grabs from my Flip video in the rain, which is why the quality might not be the best on some of them) on the “flip,” including some truly bizarre ones, an apparently racist one, the usual “socialist”/”Marxist” crap, a misspelling of “Kagan,” and other assorted hilarity. I’ll post video of Kookinelli’s speech as soon as it finishes uploading to YouTube. Enjoy?

P.P.S. There were multiple shoutouts/tributes to the late/great Andrew Breitbart, including one speaker who claimed “we are all Andrew Breitbart,” a speech by “Gateway Pundit” blogger Jim Hoft which lauded Breitbart as a hero, and even a song in Breitbart’s honor (video coming later). Bizarre is one word for it. I’m sure you can think of other, stronger words.

UPDATE: Check out the crazy brain surgeon ranting about the Soviet Union, “socialism,” etc.

    I am sure it was no coincidence that while ranting and raving like a fire and brimstone evangelical preacher Cooch was wearing an overly visible white T-shirt which when combined with the blue shirt was reminiscent of a clerical collar. Makes sense when religious references were made in his blathering.  

  • Jon David performs his song “American Heart” (a few of the lyrics are below), dedicated to Andrew Breitbart (David’s “close friend”), for a crowd of around 1,000 people at a Tea Party rally against the Affordable Care Act (aka, “Obamacare”) between the U.S. Senate and U.S. Supreme Court on Saturday afternoon, March 24, 2012. “Gateway Pundit” Jim Hoft holds a sign with Breitbart’s image on one side, and “Impeach Kagen” (spelled incorrectly) on the other side.


    I’m American made

    I’ve got American parts

    I’ve got American faith

    In America’s Heart

    Go on raise a flag

    Cause I got stars in my eyes

    Oh, I’m in love with her

    And, I won’t apologize

    You can bet every person at this Tea Party rally will vote in November.  

    WILL YOU??????

  • *Declares repeatedly that “the Tea Party is back!”

    *Rips the Occupy movement as criminals, thugs, etc.

    *Praises Andrew Breitbart as “our warrior,” a “dear friend and patriot” who “showed us how to be strong…fearless.”

    *Urges repeal of “Obamacare”
