Birds of a Feather: TeaPublican, Pathetic “Gov” from NC to “Help”...

If there were ever a metaphor for what's wrong with Ken Cuccinelli, and his desperate campaign to bring Virginia back to the Stone Age, it has to be the upcoming visit by pretend NC Governor Pat McCrory. He's even a more fitting metaphor than Rick Santorum's jetting in to "rescue the Cooch" from his inanity. As if. So tomorrow, Pat McCrory will rally with Cuccinelli in Roanoke, purportedly to get out the vote (GOTV) for the Cooch. How fitting that the worst "Governor" in America will campaign for the worst AG. (McAuliffe has totally trumped Cooch with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Bill Clinton, hasn't he?)

But McCrory is in a league of his own. He might as well be a subsidiary of Art Pope, the Koch Brothers' buddy, who helped found and fund Americans for Prosperity (prosperity for for the 400 richest in America and not for everyone else). As I have told you on these pages, Pat McCrory picked his very own sugar daddy, the Ayn Randian Art Pope, to be NC's budget director. And you know who is really governor (hint: it's not Pat). In other words, McCrory couldn't do the job himself anyway. He's too busy furrowing his brow in front of the mirror and trying to act "serious." He has taken to hiding from the citizens of NC because he cannot govern and he doesn't care what the citizens think.

Nor can Cooch do the job of governor of Virginia. He's too busy with foolish and destructive retro campaigns that hurt people. And he's too preoccupied trying to bring back anti-sodomy laws, which the SCOTUS has ruled unconstitutional. It's ironic as hell that the radical right used as an anti-ACA ad a caricature of Uncle Sam involved in pelvic exams. The ACA provides a way to buy private insurance. The government is nowhere in the examining room. But Cooch and McCrory have inserted themselves into women's vaginas and done more to eliminate women's privacy than anyone in America. Besides, who would be Cooch's budget director? Pat Robertson?
