    At least he won't be trying to control my uterus, unlike if Cuccinelli had won and McAullife's said he's working to see if he can at least reduce the tolls, so right now I see that as a fair enough trade off. Check back with me in four years to see if I have a different answer.

    Well, if you're wrong about him controlling your uterus then your kid will be a bit over three by then...

    Cuccinelli changing the rules for how votes are counted in the middle of vote-counting in a very close election takes the cake, though.

    There's like a hundred-vote difference between the two candidates to be Cuccinelli's successor as Virginia's AG. 3000 votes in Fairfax County were mysteriously found to not be included in the count. While people are counting them, Cuccinelli has changed the rules in Fairfax County that any voters who cast a provisional ballot must appear before the voter counters and argue why their vote should be counted, if they want it to be counted. It's sickening the joke he is making of democracy and the law in Virginia.

    Well now this reminds me of the plot synopsis of A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: Dream Child.

    His way of saying FU to Virginia voters on his way out?

    Thank goodness he didn't the Gov's race last week.

    There seems to be indications that Gov Scott Walker will run for President. Yeah, I almost put that in Derp.

    Meanwhile Charlie Crist, former Florida Republican Gov. turned Independent, turned Democrat has filed to run for his old job again.

    Crist was a terrible governor. Scott has been a terrible governor. Not much to choose from there. But it's Florida.

    Given what sort of message board you are on, I think he means that lady involved with making the new Star Wars, not a member of the real Kennedy family.

    I could also mean both, and it would turn into a Weekend at Bernie's type of scenario.

    RIP Kathleen Kennedy, producer of Star Wars, ambassador to Japan, and sister to JFK. She died tragically in a plane accident in 1948 and then spent the next 60+ years serving the country as a zombie before finally succumbing to a headshot.@};-
