You’d think it was April Fools’ Day (updated)

With the stuff that’s coming out this afternoon. Cuccinelli wants emergency legislation to allow other Republicans on the primary ballot. And three who didn’t even bother to turn in petitions have joined Perry’s suit. WTH?


UPDATE: Can you say “oops”? Cuccinelli reconsiders changing 2012 Virginia ballot

However, after working through different scenarios with Republican and Democratic leaders to attempt to make changes in time for the 2012 Presidential election, my concern grows that we cannot find a way to make such changes fair to the Romney and Paul campaigns that qualified even with Virginia’s burdensome system

In other words, he didn’t have the support in the legislature for his idea.

Round 1 goes to Bolling.

  1. It’s a free-for-all and it isn’t even January 1st yet.

    This is what it looks like when the haves try to enforce their agenda on the rest of us. Republicans are all for “values” until it gets in the way of the agenda (see abortion).

      1. It is changing the rules of getting on the ballot after the deadline for doing so has ended.

        Romney and Paul spent the money, and their volunteers spent the time, to get on the ballot. The others did not. Coming in after the deadline to put the others on the ballot is unfair to Paul and Romney and their volunteers.
