    He's probably a stealth candidate.  We went through this in Florida with our school boards.  Fairly reasonable people would run.  Once elected, they would start instituting mandatory prayers, mandatory bible study, and so on.  

    They didn't last long.  

    I suspect this is the way it is with many bat shit crazy teabaggers.  The voters don't find out how bat shit crazy they are until they're elected.

      He was obviously bat-shit crazy the last time he ran for office. The problem is that Virginia has off-year and therefore low-turnout elections and the top of the ticket for the Dems was less than inspiring. We have to mobilize the shit out of Dems and Independents in Virginia for this falls election. I'm from neighboring Maryland and I plan to work for McAuliffe despite his limitations. Do NOT give any more power to this idiot.

        But he didnt bring anything that would get NoVa excited except the D after his name, which isn't much in an off off year election

        •  As I said, less than inspiring, (1+ / 0-)

          but not a bad Democrat.

          He was against Obamacare which made a lot of Dems think , why should I vote FOR this guy? He actively kept people away with his positions which made Dems think, why bother going if I get the same policies either way?

           He is an object lesson for the fate of the entire Democratic Party if they don't wake up and start acting like Dems and representing the 99%. We will simply have no reason to stir ourselves to go to the polls for the Dems who act like Republicans.
