Charles Pierce is unenthusiastic about the Virginia election:
It is a very good thing that Virginia did not hand the governor's office over to a career vaginophobe who sought to outlaw blowjobs in that other Commonwealth. This is setting a remarkably low bar in 2013, and Terry McAuliffe barely cleared it.

That's kind of how I feel. I don't care for Terry McAuliffe. It's like, "Vote for the corporatist, it's important."

I feel like it was a synedoche for the entire political landscape - the right wing is getting away with undoing as much of the social contract as possible, especially with reproductive rights, and the Dems are doing very little due to center right market worship has undermined their ability to do much as their reluctant to be openly not punishing women for having sex lest the alienate too much of the plutocracy.

Why would the plutocracy want to punish women for having sex? Or are the women having sex to avoid alienating the plutocracy?

Anyway, why would the plutocracy care?

Ayup, pretty much. And note that it isn't yet known whether Mark "you ladies will report your miscarriages to the police or you will be charged with a crime" Obenshain has been elected Attorney General of Virginia. Fuck that state.
