Yet another “moderate Republican” who has feasted upon sour grapes directs his fire at a conservative Republican, and right here in Virginia.
The outstanding Attorney General for Virginia, Ken Cucinelli, is running unopposed in the Republican gubernatorial primary. Our Lt. Governor, Bill Bolling, who had planned to run, but then dropped out when it became apparent that he had no chance of beating Cucinelli, is now considering running as an independent, and is attacking Cucinelli for his presumed lack of that very moth-eaten piece of political camping gear, the Big Tent. And, as usual, although Bolling claims that he and Cucinelli are both “very conservative guys”, his grandstanding is playing right into the hands of Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Terry McAuliffe.
Before we have any hope of wresting control from the Democrats, it is clear that we shall first have to retake our own party from the moderates.
