There is a time honored tradition in our democracy that has the losing side contacting the winning side to offer congratulations. It is part of how we as a society put the disagreements between candidates behind and go forth and govern.
Obviously, as a Democrat, I am happy with the results in the Governor’s race (and the Lt. Governor’s race). I am hopeful about the close election here for Attorney General, which is still being counted.
But as someone who believes in governing as much as I believe in democracy, well, I am disgusted with the tone of Ken Cuccinelli’s post-defeat actions. He has no plans to contact Governor-elect McAuliffe. He has no plans to get together to see what can be done to help the people of the Commonwealth.
Ken Cuccinelli’s Concession speech, if you have the stomach for it, wasn’t a concession speech. It was a “We have to be even bigger assholes and THEN we’ll win” speech. It is scary to think that these fanatics still claim a loss as a victory, and have no plan to work within the confines of what — and whom — the voters chose.
What an ass. What a dangerous ass.
I wonder if when Ken Cuccinelli goes and fucks himself, if it is considered sodomy.
As I say all the time, Elections Matter. Good for Virginia.

For those of you who don’t peruse the comments, I had to put this hilarious one from El Guapo into the post:
Not sure about the sodomy, but if Cuccinelli tried to mind-fuck himself, it would probably be necrophilia.
