It won't so much be the libertarians that get flogged. The guy who ran wasn't libertarian and got protest votes from both sides of the isle.

This will be once be blamed on all "those commie pinko faggots" up here in NOVA. Which is an odd insult to hurl at the home of the CIA and the Pentagon but they do it! Which contains three of the top five richest counties in the nation, including spots one and two. Funny thing is that also means we are very well educated and don't tolerate idiots. So while we are economically to the right and love us some military spending... criminalizing miscarriages, ranting about sodomy, saying yoga is of the devil, and trying to ban birth control doesn't get votes. It does make us think you should be medicated.

Not to mention the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of federal workers here, toss in the DOD/CIA, all the contractors, tech sector, and people who feed and sells goods to them. So sequestering the government and then shutting it down could be called the "lay off half the people in NOVA" strategy. This also does not win votes.

Turns out "no jobs, no blowjobs, yoga causes demonic possession" doesn't sell round these parts.

These election results show how we teeter right on the edge of full blown fascism. It's beyond my comprehension that 45.7% of Virginians (who voted) wanted Cuccinelli, and another 6.6% wanted someone even more extreme.

I don't know how much longer we can hold these people at bay. Whether suddenly or gradually, it seems inevitable that we will eventually be living in a nation remade according to their deranged far right vision.

The results also mean about half of virginians prefer a sex-obsessed lunatic.
A straight up Repub grifter like Christie would have won easily. Just keep telling the wealthy suburbanites their war industry/security state is cool and hippies who want to cut their gov't war jobs are the real threat to freedom and stuff. Works every time.

Va's kind of rough. It's very uncivilized until you hit the north. The rest of it might as well be Mississippi in the '30s. What's sad is that McAuliffe needed all that damn help to beat an anti sodomy character. I think it's time for the party to start fielding better candidates. There's no excuse for being this sorry.

@Jack

The libertarian was not "more extreme". He was running as a libertarian but his platform and policies were that of a blue dog Democrat. Which is why the Pauls and other libetarians were in VA telling people to vote for the Cooch.

You know, there are words there, but I don't think they go together the way you think they do.

@Geese,
Thanks for the clarification; I wasn't aware that the "libertarian" was more moderate than The Cooch. Thanks for letting me know.
