Ken Cuccinelli is an embarrassment to Virginia

Ken Cuccinelli's latest atrocity? Invoking Abraham Lincoln to justify attempts to deny women the healthcare they need:
"You know, Abraham Lincoln has many good quotes, but one of them is ‘the best way to get rid of a bad law is to enforce it vigorously.’ And here we’re going to have an example of what tyranny means when it’s played to its logical conclusion,” Cuccinelli said. “Because forcing business owners and businesses to do this is not consistent with our history of preserving religious liberty, one of the most important protections we have in this country."
If Ken Cuccinelli is going to neglect his duties as Virginia's Attorney General to campaign out of state, then maybe he needs to resign now. Clearly the man is actively campaigning and has no interest in doing his job. If Ken Cuccinelli is going to go around encouraging people to break the law, then he has no business drawing a paycheck from the state as attorney general.
