Bob McDonnell's "post-probe" world
The far right Republicans in Virginia's General Assembly have permanently damaged Bob McDonnell's brand. The rank and file extremist Republicans who pushed this legislation through committee onto the floor of the Senate and House where it became the center of national attention remain essentially anonymous. Jill who?
Bob McDonnell doesn't have the benefit of anonymity: the VP spotlight is shining bright on McDonnell--and as a result McDonnell gets the "credit" for the legislation and the nickname "Governor Vaginal Probe." So much for not overreaching.
