Trailing by a Real Clear Politics average 7.7 points in his race for governor, besieged by one scandal or the other (or the other);  ripped by a right-wing radio talk show host for letting the GOP "establishment" supposedly convince him to water down his Teahadist red meat rhetoric; faced with near-panic among Virginia Republicans at the prospect of the entire "extreme team" (Ken Cuccinelli, EW Jackson, Mark "Criminalize Miscarriages" Obenshain) losing on November 5; Ken Cuccinelli has responded as only a right wingnut would: by shaking up his campaign team and lurching even further to the far-right. For evidence on that latter point, see below.

First, this one photo sums up everything wrong with Ken Cuccinelli.

Second, yesterday in Salem, Virginia, Cuccinelli got the "Extreme Team" "band" back together, after weeks of not appearing together and seeming to distance himself from his crazy/extreme ticket mates.

And what hard-right lurch would be complete without a "Constitution Day Rally" with right-wing hate radio/shock jock Mark Levin, a raging bigot of all kinds - misogynist, homophobe, racist, etc?

Don't forget to slap on that "Guns Save Lives" sticker (photo taken yesterday in Salem, Virginia)!

And of course, you've got to hold an event with that cool drink of water, several-leaves-short-of-a-teabag Marco Rubio.

And one just for fun. Caption contest, perhaps?  Seriously, WTF? Are all of Cuccinelli's supporters so...uh....indescribable?

P.S. Oh yeah, and don't forget to have a new "SuperPAC" run a bizarre ad that was SO laughably bad I parodied it here.

UPDATE 12:31 pm Sunday: Check out this audio from yesterday of EW Jackson introducing Ken Cuccinelli and affirming that yes, they very much ARE working together!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
