Cuccinelli stepping in

33rd District
Outlook: Likely Republican
Primary: Leans May

A forwarded copy of the "Cuccinelli Compass" indicates that Northern Virginia's best GOP organizer may be stepping into the fight in the 33rd District. Cuccinelli makes the argument that with pending jail time facing some challengers that is has now become "illegal to be a conservative in Virginia". We have to assume this means he is stepping into the 33rd District where Chris Oprison has been threatened with legal action for his petitions in this race. This race has been tightening up a little recently, but we still are calling it as "Leans May" for now. It will be interesting to see if other conservatives join Cuccinelli in endorsing Oprison, Dick Black had a number of these precincts before redistricting. Incumbent Joe May needs a new game plan than Oprison's petitions, the public is not going to care about that.

Cuccinelli may also be referring to endorsing Steve Chapman in the 50th, but we doubt it. Ken is not that politically tone deaf.

Cuccinelli is really popular in Fairfax County.

How do you get stuff forwarded to you if you don't publish an email address?

Some of my sources know who I am. I'm going to get an email for this page soon though, I need help keeping up with everything. :)

Don't be so sure about Chapman.

I'd be embarassed for Cuccinelli if he came in for Chapman. You really think he'll do that Norman? He's usually so much smarter than that.

Cuccinelli really is a piece of work, isn't he? And he wonders why he is so ineffective in the Senate.

But think about it this way: Tom Davis probably won't land on him too hard for an Oprison endorsement because Davis is still rumored to be pretty upset at May over running for LG.

On the other hand, I suspect if Cuccinelli's backhanded endorsement was directed at Chapman, he's got some major 'splainin to do. Even most of the people who support Chapman don't want to freely admit it.

It's hard for most people to accept Chapman's "they're out to get me" explanation when his dog apparently ran loose at will, his condo is not fit for human habitation, and he managed to rack up four serious traffic tickets in five years, including one for driving with a suspended license. Norman's views notwithstanding, Chapman is way too much for most people to take. Cuccinelli would be an idiot to actually endorse this guy.

Ha. For the record, I know who you are. Secret's safe though.

Wahoo, email me and show me you know who it is. :)

Wahoo: That's Good. Now that we've all figured each other out, there is no limit to the number of stink bombs we can lob. :)

Wahoo Dan: I'm assuming you're not trying very hard to mask your identity. It's really not difficult to figure out. But I'm not going to call you out on it, you being a Wahoo and all.

Just so you know -- Ken did endorse Chapman. And used some pretty strong words in doing so. Wander over to Chapman's site and read all about it.

I have no opinion on the matter -- no dg in that fight, so to speak. Just thought you would like to know.

I'm embarassed for Ken

Mitch: Ha. No, not really. But I posted with it the first time on here, so I'm sticking with it, dammit!!!

Oh and thanks for not calling me out. Otherwise I might have to retreat into the anonymous zone and start lobbing stink bombs!

I'm still waiting for Wahoo to email me and tell me who I am. :)

Wahoo Dan: Ha? You mean you don't believe that Mitch is my real name? And I'd never call someone out. Who knows? You might run for office some day.

For those insterested, there have been some great discussions on anonymous blogging on Bacon's Rebellion, Commonwealth Conservative, etc.

Clearly they used a more potent wine at Cuccinelli's church for communion this week. What was Ken thinking????

 
At 12:10 PM, Blogger Not Larry Sabato said...

LOL. That's the best screen name on here. Please keep posting. I've already heard that Larry Sabato saw our site and was annoyed with my screen name. That one will really get him. Also, since the press is starting to pick up on us, I want one to quote an argument. Not Larry Sabato said "blah blah blah". Larry Sabatos hairpiece responded with "slip slip slip"

Y'all lay off Larry. Anyone who can eat as much mac and cheese as he has so he could give a million dollars to his school deserves to be King of the Pundits.

I'd have taken the money and moved to Aruba. I guess that's why my pseudonym involves the guy who works at that notorious free-market school up north.

Mitch: No, I knew you're mitch.

NLS: I'm afraid to. I'm afraid I'll get it wrong and then I'll look like an ass.

For now, I'll just assume that you're Bulent Ecevit, Prime Minister of Turkey.

Not Larry - I think Not Rozell has a good point. And not paul goldman had some good richmond analysis.

Where's Not Stephen Farnsworth?

I also wonder where Not James Sofka is? Probably getting laid...

 
At 12:43 PM, Blogger Not Larry Sabato said...

Yeah, I was thinking about Farnsworth today. All these guys have such big egos, they must be mad when no one uses their name on the blog. LOL.

 
At 12:46 PM, Blogger Not Larry Sabato said...

wahoo- Nothing to be scared of. Give it a shot. :)

 
At 12:50 PM, Anonymous Mitch Cumstein said...

Maybe I should start using "Not Jim Young". What do you think, Wahoo?

 
At 12:52 PM, Anonymous Not Stephen Farnsworth said...

Here I am. Spell my name right, dammit!

Okay, so we're talking about John Edwards, right?

And for the record, "Mitch Cumstein" was a character in "Caddyshack." Unfortunately, my parents weren't that clever.

not farnsworth- Welcome!

oh. i've seen that movie and for some reason i didn't get that.

 
At 6:08 PM, Blogger Not Larry Sabato said...

Yeah, I missed that also Wahoo

 
At 11:38 PM, Anonymous Wahoo Dan said...

Wait who's Jim Young?

And why did you delete my Arnold posts earlier, NLS?

 
At 11:39 PM, Anonymous Wahoo Dan said...

BTW: you've gotta give me an email address NLS.

Trust me. Once you put that up you'll get much more info.

Getting back to May - I hear that Oprison is DISAPPOINTED that Bolling
had some good words for Joe in Clarke
County and Frank Wolf (coming out of his unusual neutral stance in GOP primaries) is endorsing
May and Kilgore also has some good words for Joe - What is left is Black and the Cooch - they have nowhere to go to keep pushing Chris into right field.

I like the "Not Jim Young" screen name. Great idea! If you don't know who he is, just search for him on some of these blogs. He's usually calling people "pissboy" and other such highly intellectual names.
