It’s Election Day and this final lap in Virginia has not gone without a bang. This weekend, the Washington Post had some strong words for Republican Attorney General candidate Ken Cuccinelli in the Op/Ed piece entitled “Mr. Cuccinelli’s bigotry.” The editorial accused Cuccinelli for what the Post says are outdated viewpoints.

The future of our Party demands that Mr. Cuccinelli be defeated.
