Profiles in Cowardice – Virginia Republican Gubernatorial Nominee Ken Cuccinelli Refused to be Photographed with Supporter Sen. Ted Cruz

Running Like a Fraidy Cat From His Conservative Positions

According to himself and other supporters, the radical conservative candidate for Virginia’s governor, Ken Cuccinelli, is a principled man willing to speak out on the issues regardless of the political consequences.  So says his supporter, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz who is leading the war on the government by shutting it down.

“Ken is smart, he’s principled and he’s fearless,” said Cruz, in a line that may give the left fodder for attack ads, given how the campaign has gone. “And that last characteristic in particular is a rare, rare commodity in elected life. There are so many elected officials in both parties that desperately crave the adulation of the media and the intelligentsia.”

In the clearest sign yet of the potent effect of the government shutdown on the Virginia governor’s race, Republican Ken Cuccinelli avoided being photographed with Ted Cruz at a gala they headlined here Saturday night—even leaving before the Texas senator rose to speak.

And since Mr. Cuccinelli would not be photographed with Mr. Cruz, here they are together in separate photograph.

Yeah, we just want everybody to see that.  And a defeat of Mr. Cuccinelli by an unliked, inane, inarticulate and generally unqualified Democrat would send a loud message to Republicans.  Let’s hope it comes to that.
