Announcing the Ass Clown of the Month for June, 2013!

Last month at this time we announced May's Ass Clown of the Month - a joint award to North Korea's "Great Successor" Kim Jong-un and America's own half-cocked big shot, NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre. This month, we have culled the teeming throng of superb candidates  to select yet another joint winner. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the June 2013 dishonorees:

Virginia GOP Candidate for Governor


Virginia GOP Candidate for Lieutenant Governor

If you were looking for an extreme conservative ticket, you couldn't do much better than the Tea Party dream* team of Cuccinelli and Jackson. It was Mr Jackson, after all, who has called gays “perverted” and “sick,” and has denounced Planned Parenthood as being “far more lethal” to blacks “than the KKK.” And Mr Cuccinelli is so profoundly conservative on issues from immigration to abortion to gay rights to guns that, although he is a darling of the Tea Party, he enjoys an overall 44% negative or "not sure" rating among rank and file Virginia Republicans.

In a year when Virginia voters are faced with a choice between two unpopular and undesirable candidates**, the GOP seems to have gone out of its way to pander to its most radical base and offer a slate so far to the right of most Virginians as to drive thinking people away.

Ken Cuccinelli and E.W. Jackson - congratulations on your selection as Ass Clowns of the Month for June of 2013, and for giving true conservative principles a bad name. Now, get out there and lose the election.

Have a good day. More thoughts coming.


* And by "dream" we mean "nightmare" for rational people.

** Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe isn't winning any popularity contests, either.

These two are big blog fodder right now.

They certainly are major ass-clowns, but I worry that the June selection made so early in the month will lock out other, potentially greater, worthy candidates.

I hope we are lucky enough that they are the worst the month will have to offer!
