RUSH: Yeah, it looks like it’s exactly what we predicted it would be. In Virginia the GOP simply didn’t want a Tea Party candidate winning there. They just didn’t. ‘Cause they coulda won that race, folks. I mean, it’s really a shame. I was gonna say stunning, but it really isn’t stunning.
Let’s talk about the election yesterday, the two big ones, and the first white mayor in Detroit in 40 years, not many people talking about that, but that happened. You know, the Associated Press is saying that Clinton bagman Terry McAuliffe won in Virginia because he followed the Clinton model. (interruption) Well, now, wait, don’t pooh-pooh that. Why are you pooh-poohing? He followed the Clinton model. The Clinton model of running in a three-way race where there was a ringer candidate to siphon off votes from his opponent.
If you look at the end result in Virginia, more people voted against McAuliffe than voted for him. It’s no different than Ross Perot in the race in 1992 siphoning votes away from Bush 41. And just like in Clinton’s two elections, more people voted against McAuliffe than voted for him because of this fake Libertarian candidate who was bought and paid for by an Obama bundler who ended up getting 7% of the vote.
Cuccinelli was supposed to lose this thing in a landslide. He ended up losing it by one to two percent. So it fits the Clinton model to a T. Bagman candidate, third-party candidate that’s a bogus placeholder, to siphon off votes, and it worked like a charm. But the details coming out of Virginia are even more frustrating and maddening than that. Even though they were predicted, it’s still frustrating to see it happen.
