Three of a Perfect Pair (Not!)
So now the pro-Frederick forces are using a video of His Highness being introduced and applauded at the recent NoVA Attorney General debate as evidence of his great popularity (see here and here for examples). The auditorium was fully stocked with rabid Cuccinelli supporters, several of whom sported both Frederick and Cuccinelli campaign paraphenelia. We all know which candidate’s supporters were cheering on Little Napoleon. Plenty of people sat on their hands. We also now have word that all of the GOP State Senators are in favor of ousting Frederick except one. Well of course it’s Cuccinelli. Go here to see more discussion about this from Cuccinelli.
We also have the Patrick Muldoon fringers fully on the Save Frederick bandwagon, with many vowing to take down Bob McDonnell for daring to state the obvious – that Jeff Frederick has lost all credibility and must go to save this party. These people need to get the message that they are well on the outskirts of acceptability to the majority of voters. In fact, people like them scare the crap out of the average voter. They are certainly a part of the Republican big tent, but they cannot be in the driver’s seat. Frederick must go and we need broader leadership and participation in RPV if it is ever to be truly successful again.
After having an opportunity to utilize Adrian Belew to good effect a few weeks ago, I just couldn’t get this King Crimson tune out of my head, especially after seeing the Cuccinelli-Frederick synergy at the AG debate. Throw in Muldoon and you certainly have “Three of an Imperfect Pair” set to set back the GOP for a decade or more in Virginia. Some of these lyrics are just too apropos! (“he has his contradicting views”, “they make a study in despair”, “oh what a perfect mess”) This is video from a solo rendition at a Crimson concert by Belew:
