Virginia’s GOP Is For Nutters

Virginia’s Republican Party changed its nominating process to ensure that current state attorney general Ken Cuchinelli would be nominated for governor. This also paved the way for an attorney general nominee who wants to convict women who don’t report miscarriages of a crime and our new favorite Republican — E.W. Jackson.

If you were going to create a Republican candidate designed to alienate anyone who’s scared that the Republican Party wants to push back the clock on the rights of women and gay Americans, Bishop Jackson would be to the right of that candidate. Slate‘s Dave Weigel calls him “The Walking Republican Nightmare.”

This guy is so bad that even Republicans are noticing.
