Cuccinelli and Santorum – Misogynists in Action
The Virginia gubernatorial election is two weeks away and ultra-conservative Ken Cuccinelli is trailing Terry McAuliffe by 8 points – 38/46. Even more telling of where this race stands, is the fact that Cuccinelli, the state’s attorney general who has attempted to outlaw abortion, contraception and oral sex, is losing the women’s vote by a margin of 20 points, 32%/52%. Women despise Cuccinelli. No surprise there.
So what does Cuccinelli do to shore up his support with women? Well he brings in the one Republican who might be an even bigger homophobic, woman-hating dick than himself. He brings in Mr. Froth himself, RickSantorum.

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum announced over the weekend that he would be heading to Virginia with a “Strikeforce” to help save Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli’s struggling campaign.
According to a fundraising email obtained by Right Wing Watch, Santorum promises that his “Strikeforce will go door-to-door and hold sign waves during the weekend of November 1-3 to help get Republican voters to the polls!”
“Ken Cuccinelli, an unapologetic conservative, is running against liberal, Clinton-insider Terry McAuliffe,” Santorum wrote. “The polls show McAuliffe leading, but Ken can pull off a victory with our help.”
I might be wrong, but if a politician is finding difficulty in getting women to vote for him, it might be a good idea to not recruit the “help” of a guy who has said …
“The notion that college education is a cost-effective way to help poor, low-skill, unmarried mothers with high school diplomas or GEDs move up the economic ladder is just wrong.”
“Radical feminists have been making the pitch that justice demands that men and women be given an equal opportunity to make it to the top in the workplace.”
“One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country…. Many of the Christian faith have said, well, that’s okay, contraception is okay. It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”
Thank you, Rick Santorum.
Watching the misogynistic Ken Cuccinelli going down in flames is going to be one of the little joys of the year.
