I just got back from the fossil-fuel-funded "Consumer Energy Alliance" forum in Arlington, and it was basically as much of a travesty as I said it would be. I've got a bunch of video uploading now, but for the time being, check out the post-forum "press scrum," during which Cuccinelli dodges repeated questions on global warming, his involvement in the CONSOL Energy scandal, his involvement with the "fathers' rights" movement, etc, etc. As he's made evident throughout this campaign - and certainly, as you'll see, during his "Big Lie" presentation at the forum today, the guy simply can't tell the truth on anything. Just lie lie lie, dodge dodge doge, excuse excuse excuse, attack attack attack. That's it. That's all Cooch has to say for himself. No positive agenda. Angry at the press for asking him legitimate questions. Completely unable to stay on topic or keep his stories straight. What a pathetic joke this guy is. Let's just make sure his political career comes to a screeching, ignominious halt on November 5!
