Quoting Quiverfull: They Helped Out Exactly How?

The Duggars did a quick three day tour of Virginia in support of Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia Attorney General currently running for Governor. You’ve heard of Cuccinelli, the guy that wants to make birth control illegal along with oral sex, abortion and a host of lesser things. He also believes in slavery and Christian dominionism. He is also embroiled in a messy gifts from a corporation that wanted him to look favorably on their business in the state.

There’s just one problem, Cuccinelli is lagging in the polls behind his opponent Terry McAuliffe, partly because he’s still dealing with the fallout from the illegal gifts, partly because he’s a Tea Party favored son during a bitterly opposed government shutdown and partly because many Virginians hate that he was trying to take away all blow jobs among other things.

He thought he’d bring in the Duggar family to stump for him to help raise his poll numbers. There’s just one problem. Ol’ Jim Bob seems to be confused over the names of the folks running in the election…..

    The Duggar name isn’t with what people outside the quiverfull fringe think it is worth and Virginia was the state worst hit by the shutdown, so even if Virginia-is-for-lovers was willing to give up birth control and oral in this day and age, it’s not going to elect another potential person to participate in Shutdown, Part II come January.

  • Saraquill

    With help like that, I seriously doubt he’d be elected.

  • Trollface McGee

    Wasn’t Jim Bob elected to some office or other? You’d think that between that and being on a reality show, he’d manage a “my candidate’s opponent is going to corrupt civilisation and do stuff just like Hitler,” speech instead of…that.

  • Nea

    He ran and failed. And he blamed that failure not on himself or his campaign, but one of his kids for bringing “sin into the camp” and thus turning God away from him!

  • Trollface McGee

    Ahh nothing like the party of personal responsibility.

  • persephone

    Oh, lord, don’t get me started on tea partiers. They are the most demanding, self serving, lack of responsibility bunch I’ve ever met.

  • Nea

    And being the responsible Head of the Family and an example to a fallen world.

  • persephone

    He served one term in the Arkansas legislature, but lost every other primary he entered.

  • Independent Thinker

    Did someone forget to give Jim Bob a copy of his script before turning on the TV cameras?

    I’ve known Cucchinelli several years through professional associations (among other things, we went to the same law school) and he’s a Facebook friend, though I no longer live in Virginia. FWIW, he came out against a government shutdown, i.e., he broke with the Tea Party contingent on that issue. I saw his statement on Facebook. This isn’t a real suprise, as Gov. McDonnell also opposed the shutdown. The shutdown very much affected states. So many state-run programs are run with federal funds. Defund, even temporarily, the federal programs and the state programs quickly run out of money. To keep them open, the states have to spend from their own coffers. There probably isn’t a governor or major state officeholder out there — Cucchinelli is currently the Virginia AG — who wanted a shutdown.

    This was not in any way intended to be a political statement. I just wanted to set the record straight on that one issue, that Tea Party support of his gubernatorial campaign doesn’t translate to his support of the shutdown.

    Wow, that was just downright painful to watch. He sounds like he’s completely wasted. If this had happened in a movie I would have thought “They made this scene go on too long. This would never actually happen.” But…it did.

    Hahahahaha!!!! I can’t stop laughing!!!!!!

    He’s like a 7 year old that didn’t learn his poem quite right and keeps “trying again”. Hahahahaaaaaaaaa
