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.
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!
