Ken Cuccinelli pandering to the Virginia Tea Party
This is video of the last few minutes of Ken Cuccinelli's opening remarks at the Virginia Tea Party Patriots Convention in Richmond, Virginia, October 9, 2010. Once again, I apologize for the poor quality of the video--it was among the earliest of my experiments with video.
As I stood there among a crowd of extreme conservatives I realized that Ken Cuccinelli was going to stab Bill Bolling in the back. This speech really marked the beginning of Cuccinelli's run for governor of Virginia. It was clear to me then--as it is now--that Cuccinelli thought his path to the Governor's Mansion lay through pandering to the emerging Tea Party movement.
