What a mercy it is for the state of Virginia that sensible Terry McAuliffe won, rather than extremist and homophobic Ken “Kookinelli” Cuccinelli.
Norfolk attorney Michael Hamar has talked about Cuccinelli’s dangerously narrow views in several posts on his blog, Coming Out In Mid-Life. Cuccinelli is a Creationist who does not care much about abiding by the rules of separation of church and state. He wants to impose his reactionary agenda on everybody.
It is not so much that I am glad that McAuliffe won the gubernatorial race in Virginia because he is a progressive. I’m glad that he won because he, unlike Faux News, actually has a fair and balanced approach to issues. These are the kinds of people I want in government, not those who have an agenda to spread their closed-minded ideology at any cost.
