McAuliffe's ok with keeping substandard abortion clinics open.
So, it's not really about keeping abortion "safe", is it? It's about cynically playing up to the notion that abortion isn't so much a right as it is some kind of fetish or totem that is inextricably bound up with the radical feminist's self-identification, and thus must never, under any circumstances, be altered or restricted, no matter what the cost (in dead infants or in dead or mutilated women).
Seriously, Virginians, are we going to do this thing? Are we really going to heave this sleazy capo from the Clinton mafia into the governor's mansion? If this happens, I'm going to start a movement to compel Northern Virginia to secede from the rest of the state. The place has been filling up with federal bureaucrats, lobbyists, left-wing think-tankers, and assorted progressive hangers-on - in other words, Democrats. Democrats, furthermore, who are contaminating the politics of the Old Dominion, and turning her into a hideous shade of purple, trending blue.
"But, Paco," you say, "that would leave you behind enemy lines!" Fine with me. That's where guerrillas belong. Besides, I already feel like I'm behind enemy lines; that's why I refer to it as "Occupied Northern Virginia".
