The Great Cuccinelli Messaging Machine (funny video)

I’ve written before about Ken Cuccinelli, the Republican candidate for governor of Virginia who is a far right religious fundamentalist.

I’ve written about Cuccinelli’s visceral animus for gays.

And others have chronicle Cuccinelli’s horrific record on women’s issues:

Cuccinelli does not support a rape and incest exception to abortion bans.

He does not see the need for the state to fund Planned Parenthood—which provides services as wide-ranging as HIV testing, prenatal care, and adoption referrals for thousands of women living in the Commonwealth.

He has supported legislation that would allow pharmacists to refuse to provide emergency contraception if it violates their conscience, and feels employers should be able to dictate whether the health insurance plans they offer cover contraception.

He pushed legislation that would have banned third-trimester abortions in Virginia, even in emergencies that endangered the life of the mother.

Four years ago, he had the opportunity to help amend Virginia law in a way that would make sex with minors a more serious offense; he opted instead to defend the statute lawmakers were trying to replace, an unconstitutional state ban on sodomy.He is silent on whether he supports equal pay legislation.

And yes, that’s right, Ken Cuccinelli wants to outlaw oral sex.  Even for straight people.  Even for straight married people.

So it’s no surprise that Ken Cuccinelli is losing badly in the polls just two weeks before the election.  It also doesn’t help that Cuccinelli’s running mate, E.W. Jackson, is a certifiable loon who, among other things, thinks President Obama is a Muslim, gays are pedophiles, and the Democratic party is worse than the KKK.

Ken-CuccinelliWell, our good friend from Second City, Andy Cobb, decided to weigh in with a fun little video about another recent messaging problem Cuccinelli’s supporters, the Duggars, seem to be having.  You see, Team Cuccinelli is just not sure of the last name of Cuccinelli’s opponent, Terry McAuliffe.

Here’s Andy, having some fun:
