The Right's Circular Firing Squad
Posted - 10/21/2013 2:04:47 PM | show profile | flag this post
Coming on the heels of their "defeat is victory!" logic of the government shutdown, conservatives have decided to give Congressional Republicans a break and shoot state candidates in the foot for a while.
Virginia elects a new Governor in two weeks.
Republican Ken Cuccinelli is running significantly behind Democrat Terry MacAuliffe in the race.
And the "Conservative Campaign Committee" is coming to his rescue like a fire brigade with a bucket of gasoline!
They're running an ad in Northern Virginia that has two major problems for "Cooch" -- as his supporters call him.
First, it tries to smear MacAulliffe for being an associate of Hillary Clinton's. The problem, Clinton is insanely popular in Virginia. So the ad's likely to help MacAulliffe's standing in the campaign.
Second, the CCC's ad talks about the SENATE race.
