Bob McDonnell is about to become Virginia’s governor. He’s opened up a 13-point lead over Creigh Deeds, whose gnar kill name is offset by his abysmal performance as a candidate.
How abysmal has Deeds been? Abysmal enough to find himself 13 points behind the proud author of a blatantly bigoted, atavistic manifesto of fundamentalist Christian nonsense.
As a 34 year old “grad student” at Regent “University”, McDonnell:
[E]quated homosexuality with drug abuse and pornography as evils that “the government must restrain, punish, and deter”…decried a Supreme Court ruling invalidating a ban on contraception for married couples because it promoted “a view of liberty based on radical individualism”…
urged that “every level of government should statutorily and procedurally prefer married couples over cohabitators, homosexuals or fornicators,” adding, “The cost of sin should fall on the sinner, not the taxpayer”…[and] he described “feminism” as one of the “real enemies of the traditional family” and criticized federal child-care programs because they “subsidize a dynamic new trend of working women and feminists that is ultimately detrimental to the family.”
So congratulations, Mr. Deeds. You are about to lose to a total fucking asshole in a state that went to Obama in 2008. What does that make you?
