Bishop E.W. Jackson, preacher turned candidate for the lt. governor’s officer in Virginia, is still trying to find a way to make his long record of batshit crazy statements go away so they don’t hurt his and Ken Cuccinelli’s campaign to win the state house. After saying initially that he had nothing to apologize for, he now says:
As Democrats and the media continue to hammer Virginia lieutenant governor hopeful E.W. Jackson for his past comments on social issues, the Christian minister says he is battling what he calls the “mainstream media’s caricature” of him.In an email sent to The Daily Caller this week, the running mate to Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli said “every one of those comments has a context and were spoken in my role as a minister, not as a candidate.”
To be fair, perhaps he has a point. Since he said them as a minister, perhaps one should assume that he was either lying or just plain full of shit. Then again, that’s true of politicians as well.
