Even by the low, low “standards” of Corey Stewart, a leading candidate for the Virginia Republicans’ 2018 U.S. Senate nomination, and the Virginia GOP, this is pathetic and embarrassing (see video below). According to neo-Confederate Corey, who just held a bizarre press conference outside the Virginia General Assembly building, any Virginia Republican who supports Medicaid expansion is “flaccid,” “soft,” “weak,” “pathetic” and “useless.”
Furthermore, Stewart says “these are toilet paper Republicans – just as soft, just as weak, just as pathetic, just as flimsy…toilet paper Republicans…a bunch of garbage.” Stewart adds that “for any Republican who has betrayed their constituents, who has betrayed their word to Virginians, I’m coming after them in 2019…we’re going to remove every single pathetic, flaccid Republican who votes for Obamacare expansion.” Asked by a reporter about whether his use of the word “flaccid” was intended to be sexually suggestive, Stewart responds, with comic timing, “I’m suggesting I feel sorry for their wives, they’re soft and pathetic.” Someone else remarks, “I don’t think you’re going to have any friends left,” and Stewart concludes his bizarre presser saying, “I don’t have right now up there, I’ll tell you.”
Yes, that’s today’s Virginia GOP for you. Suggestion: vote Democratic in November, up and down the ballot, and never vote Republican again.
