And I thought Sen. Jim Webb was arrogant

Today I received this PRESS RELEASE.  Perhaps Cuccinelli needs to run for US Senate – he certainly has the cojones for it.

Ken Cuccinelli wins Republican National Lawyers Association Debate

(Arlington, VA) – Demonstrating a solid grasp of the issues facing the next Attorney General, State Senator Ken Cuccinelli today laid out to George Mason law students his vision of how the Attorney General can help our economy by creating jobs and keeping Virginia a low-tax, low-regulation and pro-business state.

“I’m proud of how we did today.  Governor Gilmore did an outstanding job of moderating this debate and I enjoyed laying out those principle differences between myself and my opponents.  I look forward to pushing for the conservative issues that matter most to Virginia families as the next Attorney General.”

Today’s debate was held at the George Mason University School of Law in Arlington.

Ken Cuccinelli has been a member of the Virginia Senate since 2002. He is a small business owner and partner in the law firm of Cuccinelli & Day, PLLC, in Fairfax.
He is a business law attorney with a particular focus on intellectual property protection and serving as an outsourced general counsel to small and mid-sized companies. His wide range of experience includes litigation, licensing, financing, employment, advertising, branding, corporate formation, business transactions and contracts for both domestic and international clients. Ken also has experience in public interest, constitutional law and property rights cases.
Ken’s bar admissions include the Patent Bar, Virginia State Bar, Eastern District of Virginia, Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, Court of International Trade, Court of Veteran Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Note again the words “PRESS RELEASE”.  I haven’t seen any independent source that says anyone “won” this debate.  Old Virginia News repeats the press release verbatim, as if it were true, and as if it were news.  No one else is mentioning it yet, as near as I can tell.
Frankly, the race for the Republican nomination as Virginia Attorney General  is disgusting.  None of the three candidates seems to understand the difference between the legislative and judicial functions of government.  All seem to have legislative agendas for their role as AG.   None seems to understand that some of their potential constituents are not white, heterosexual, married Christian men with pretty wives, 2.5 children, and a white picket fence.  None seems to have a care for those who don’t fit the Stepford model.  Their idea of “conservative” seems to make 1950’s sitcoms look edgy (after all, none of those families ever made an issue out of going to church).
I’m supposed to go to Richmond on May 30th to select one of these folks to run.  I’m seriously doubting my ability to cast a ballot for any of them.
