Virginia's Attorney General Is Ridiculous

I looked on with approval when Virginia AG Ken Cuccinelli warned Virginia colleges against extending anti-discrimination protection to people based on sexual orientation (something the State Legislature had not yet done), though I wondered if his motives were something other than wishing to protect the Commonwealth from exposure to litigation.

When a liberal friend sent me this article from Charlottesville detailing Cuccinelli's personal "Climategate" investigation of increasingly marginalized climate scientist Michael Mann (who had spent time at UVA), I shook my head in dismay, wondering if there weren't any child molesters that Cuccinelli could spend time pursuing.

Now this--Cuccinelli has decided that the Great Seal of the Commonwealth of Virginia--which exposed the left breast of "Virtus" slaying a tyrant--was too much for our delicate eyes, and he (with PAC money) has designed an alternative seal and had it emblazoned on a pin that he distributed to his staff. I've linked to the story from Huffington Post--be not afraid, your eyes will not explode if you open it.

Cuccinelli was likely the beneficiary of Bob McDonnell's vast popularity in the 2009 election--and I'm beginning to think it unfortunate that this was the case. So far, I've seen nothing to like in this prig of a show-horse.

Anyone who messes with the seal of the Commonwealth of Virginia is no Virginian in my book. Even if there is truth to his claim that this was meant as a joke, he ought to have joked with his own personal funds. Either way, leave the seal alone. It has never been so pertinent in my lifetime.

Hey LT - I served on the Turbo Dog with you from 93-97. I worked for Pat Huete. I came across your blog on FB. Look forward to following your thoughts. I tend to be "slightly" right of center myself... Take Care, Shag

He's certainly living up to the caricature he was painted as prior to the election.

Cuccinelli is a picture perfect example of the dangers of voting the party ticket. I voted for McDonnell and Bolling but thought Cuccinelli was "nuttier than a fruitcake" and voted for the Dem. Cuccinelli has down nothing to change my mind since the election.
