George Will: Cuccinelli is far from the best choice for Virginia

When William F. Buckley, running as the Conservative Party’s candidate for mayor of New York in 1965, was asked what he would do if he won, he replied: “Demand a recount.” Robert Sarvis, Libertarian Party candidate for governor of Virginia, will not need to do this.

George Will has thoroughly RINO-ized over the past 5 years. I am sick of him.

Maybe. But George will is far from intelligent and farther from being a good writer.

Is Will backing Sarvis???!!!!

Oh, jeez. You’d have thought he would look into this guy a little deeper. Even Ron Paul thinks he’s a fraud.

Quoting Robert Sarvis, Libertarian Party candidate for governor of Virginia:

TTILE OF VIDEO: Robert Sarvis: I’m Willing to Fight for Marriage Equality in Virginia

“Like you, I can’t vote for Ken Cuccinelli’s narrow-minded social agenda. I want a Virginia that’s open-minded and welcoming to all. And like you, I don’t want Terry McAuliffe’s cronyism either, where government picks winners and losers. Join me, and together we can build a Virginia that’s open-minded and open for business.”

(This is the guy who George Will seems to be supporting )

This guy is now a CNN controlled troll I think.

He is campaigning to push support to a libertarian who has at most 9% of the vote???

Last time I take Will’s advice on anything. Sarvis hands the race to Fast Terry.

9% of the vote will be enough to defeat Cuccsinelli.

I read that whole article and George Will is either totally divorced from reality, or just a creep in creep’s clothing.

Comes up with every preposterous reason to waste your vote on a guy with 9% support and to guarantee a Dem victory.

But then I have always detested Will as a smarmy little prep school elitist.

Yes. Sarvis is very much into bragging about his queer friends.

He says he will tax carbon emissions. And he uses the fact that he has a black wife to trumpet his “tolerance” and “diversity” as contrasted with the “right-wing radical” Cuccinelli.

This morning I saw three Sarvis ads on TV. Either he’s been saving whatever funds he has for now, or someone (like Will?) has decided to drop money on him.

I was thinking northern Virginia, but he lives in Maryland. And oh, how cozy---he had Obama over for dinner in 2009.

The GOP Establishment's favorite “Conservative” writer continues to try to prove Reagan was wrong about the three-legged stool of Conservatism.

There are few professed “Conservative” writers who have the contempt for Social Conservatives that George Will does. The man called Rudy Giuliani the most Conservative candidate running for the GOP Presidential nod in 2008. In his view, Social Conservatism isn't even a part of Conservatism at all.

We'll all have fun watching him pimp for Christie in a year or so.......

The fact that Virginia’s Republican ticket is thoroughly conservative obviously grates on Mr. Will’s nerves. That said, I’m preparing to move to more conservative NC, because VA is now officially a blue state thanks to the DC suburbs, Richmond, and Norfolk. I’m sickened.

Polls say Sarvis is a winner?

Just because a conservative has to run against 2 parties and the media doesn't mean conservatives aren't the best man for the job.

If the JournoList MSM types feel that they can influence the polls by their reporting, why won't Will do the same?

Why does Will right that "Cuccinelli is far from the best choice for Virginia?" That will only make voters believe it.

Does Will want McCauliffe to win?

The only wasted vote is the vote not cast and not a vote not cast for the winner.

9% cannot win, and could make the GOP candidate lose, but 9% is huge. It’s huge because people stand up and are counted they way they want to be. 9% also tells me that both candidates have serious flaws.

Terry will win simple because he has the apparatchiks behind him.

RE: So Will wants the democrat to win by not supporting a solid Conservative Republican.

It seems like for Will, NOT supporting gay marriage (or as they now say — “marriage equality”) is a disqualifier.
