Say hello to the McBollinelli sweep broom

Yes, that's right.

During his election night speech, attorney general-elect Ken Cuccinelli brought out a broom to signify the Republican Party's sweep of the top three statewide posts.

The blue-colored broom (oddly not red) was emblazoned with the name amalgam: McBollinelli.

Minutes later, a "Don't Tread On Me" flag -- a frequent presence in Cuccinelli's campaign -- was unfurled. It's a symbol, Cuccinelli said, of a "limited government that respects constitutional boundaries." It also got the core conservative crowd hollering.

Seeing that prick with the broom and the teabag flag made me want to puke.

Agree, sorry Virginia, these coming 4 years are a return to irrational voodoo style of governing based on nothing but eutopian thinking. What else to expect from these dinosaurs. Virginia, RIP!

I expect things will simmer down around here, now that Virginia has handed McDonnell a clear mandate.

The only question is whether the Post editorial board will invent reasons to criticize McDonnell--as they did in their endorsement and in the campaign generally--or whether they will sketch out plans to help him govern--as they did for Deeds to help him campaign.

Look, the Post had already decided that whoever won the primary, and whatever happened during the campaign, they were supporting whoever ran against McDonnell. That's why they endorsed Deeds in the primary. I hope they haven't already made up their minds about McDonnell's term as governor. But I won't hold my breath . . .

I can't tell you how happy it makes me to not only see the Libs lose, but to lose to Cuccinelli (again...). I know it drives them N-U-T-S to lose to him. Keep socializing America Dems! It will be just as much fun next year to do it to you again!!!
